I'd definitely try it out if it were free, but I'm good with sctimer right now. Sorry. What days next week will it be free? I know this sounds... Greedy? But I'm going to be gone from the 30th to the 8th... :(

Sweet! Will they be here? I'll be anxiously awaiting them and this timer!
BTW, how do you use a promo code? Do you enter it like a giftcard?
Yeah, redeeming promo codes is easy, launch your iTunes, look on the right side for “Quick Links” and click on “Redeem”, enter the promo code, and click "Redeem" to download the app.:eek:

Just downloaded the app. It seems like a good timer. I only did a few solves, but all of the finger motions seem to be working right.

One issue is the scrambles for clock. I understand that your 'concise' scramble is nice, but you shouldn't expect that everyone knows the pattern for the pins while scrambling clock. I think having two options ('long' and 'concise') would be nice.

Also, something else I would like to see in an update is an option to choose whether times go to the hundredths, or thousandths place. (so choose .xy or .xyz)

Thanks for the free codes! and I like the app.

Yay thanks! I had a mini panic attack cause I started from the bottom code, thinking that the first few would be redeemed and the bottom two had already been used. I got it though with one of them! Trying it out now!
Thanks!

This looks great! It's nice and simple, and for the first time on iOS... random state 3x3x3 scrambles! I'm excited about that.

However, your initialization sounds unnecessarily slow. Mark 2 initializes for me in under 10 seconds (and generates several 20-22-ish move scrambles per second after that. It uses a Javascript version of Shuang Chen's min2phase. Perhaps a port of that would be feasible? I would love to see 3x3x3 random-state scrambles as default. (Even better, I would love to have libraries of scrambles in major programming languages, mostly C and Java -> Javascript, free for anyone to use in their programs. No one should be implementing scrambles from scratch...)

Anyhow, the interface is very eager to catch taps. This interferes with the four-finger pinch gesture (for closing the app) on iPad.

Also, the in-app gestures are a cool idea, but I don't think they're intuitive and memorable enough. Some simple way to access them might be nicer. Perhaps start swiping to see the options or have a recessed options panel?

Nice job overall, though. I'll probably start using this instead of iiTimer, for the random-state scrambles. I hope you keep working on it.
