Cubeast - a speedcubing timer for Bluetooth cubes with support for all Bluetooth cubes, all timers and all major solving methods

I'm excited to announce that the first version of Cubeast is live!


By leveraging the Bluetooth connectivity of modern cubes Cubeast aims to provide a new set of insights and tools to help you become a better cuber. It records, stores and analyzes all of your solves.

Main features:
  • solve analysis and playback - multiple methods supported (including Roux), new methods can be added easily
  • statistics for each method step
  • analysis of averages
  • support for slice moves even on cubes without gyroscopes, Cubeast will even try to guess wide turns and rotations in some cases
  • ability to generate a public link to your solve or average
  • comments and likes on shared solves
  • comprehensive statistics
  • support for all Bluetooth cubes currently on the market
  • support for all timers
I really believe Bluetooth cubing will be an important part of speedcubing in the future. I have a ton of ideas for future upgrades, among others:
  • battles & tournaments
  • training exercises to help with cross, alg learning, alg recognition etc
  • case & alg recognition during solve analysis, statistics per case and per algorithm
  • blindfolded solving

Those will be coming in future releases.

Enjoy and please send any feedback you have!

are you planning to add gyroscope support?
Sorry I didn't respond sooner.

Yes, gyroscope support is on the todolist, but will take a few months to implement. I'll probably be working on battle mode first.

v3 which adds case recognition, algorithms drill and intuitive solving training for premium users has landed today.

Awesome software cubeast. One question that may seem obvious. I couldn't find a way to display percentages of time of cross, f2l, oll, pll. I can see the times for each individual step. Am I missing it somewhere? My target is to reach f2l at 62% point of the solve. Is there a way to see that calculation? Thanks.

Right now no. It wasn't a feature that was requested a lot to be honest and I have currently to plans to work on it, although that may change in the future.

It's a bit more work but you could calculate percentages yourself using the CSV export feature and using excel or something similar.

I've got an idea for future updates: a 3-blind mode, where the timer starts as soon you finish the scramble (for memo), then does splits for edges and corners (op, m2, orozco, and Op, orozco, and 3-style for corners). It could also track what letter pairs are used for training in the academy, and you can choose what method you use for edges/corners.

Thanks for the suggestion.

BLD is on the todo list, but it'll have to wait a while. I have a bunch of stuff on my todo list that I want to do before that, so, sadly, don't expect it implemented any time soon.

Can you please add Roux training support if possible? And my account won’t use timer, it insists for a Bluetooth cube
Cubeast is specifically made for Bluetooth cubes and only works with Bluetooth cubes.

What do you mean by Roux training? Currently there's CMLL training and first block training. Keep in mind that those training exercises are available only to premium users.

On the "CMLL training" mentioned above, are you planning to add a mode where you solve algs having scrambled the cube to that state shown rather than having to try to work out which alg to do from the 2d cube on the screen? That would be far better IMO.

Yes. (Sorry for not answering this sooner)
