3. click the install icon in the top of the URL bar:
In that screenshot, the 'install' icon looks like and it is just to the left of the star icon.
4. Test it out! Go offline...
Yes you can try it out with the virtual cube. The setting is called 'multi-phase', and the options are CFOP, CF+OP, CFFFFOP, CFFFFOOP, CFFFFOOPP, and Roux. I only use Roux so I can't tell you what the others do but if you can stand solving with the keyboard you should be able to try them out and...
Does the cube light up inside when you twist the top face back and forth?
Have you paired it with any other device? Once paired, it refuses to pair to something else unless you disconnect from the first pairing (e.g. your laptop).
Yes, the 356i does work with csTimer. It's a bit of a pain to figure out the correct settings, and csTimer doesn't give you feedback to tell you if you're getting the scramble correct.
To get the settings right you have to show the virtual cube, connect it, _and_ set the timer method to...
At risk of posting a repeat, because it took me a long time to find this: onionhoney's Roux trainer is the best I have found.
Is there a sticky or an article somewhere with reviews of all the best software?
Well really this argument works against the whole tech thing in cubes! For any intermediate solver who can solve in under 90s, manual scrambles and solves are fast, easy, and can be done without futzing with a cube that runs out of battery, loses its bluetooth connection occasionally, and while...
@Zain_A24 if you use a Google form, you can get the data entry to appear as rows in a spreadsheet. Then, add a new sheet to that sheet, copy your excel formulas over, and you can just process the form rows without needing to transcribe or parse the data yourself.
Thanks @Sub1Hour ... 8355 and Keyhole look like they have some of the same ideas, but neither of them is the method I am looking for.
In particular, the solution for the corners given in 8355 definitely does not strike me as intuitive, or as something a non-expert cuber could come up with over...
Some time ago I had found a very intuitive solving method, whose name or author I thought started with 'M', that I can no longer find documented online.
It's not a fast method but I liked it a lot because I believe it is possible for someone to truly solve the puzzle with just the high-level...
