Well, there are apps similar to this but free. There isn't much of an advantage. But I don't think the cost is a problem.

Similar, yes. But they all seem to have some restriction or other - that's what drove us to make this. Some could only save certain number of times, if they could save at all, some couldn't display graphs etc. Others simply don't look great - some do look great (I particularly like the look of 'Rubik's Cube Timer') but don't offer everything we needed. The comparable ones in terms of features are all paid - in particular iCube Timer, which I personally don't like the look of, and which is more expensive. That being said, if you don't need everything and a free app meets your needs, then by all means use that instead.

We've just released CubeTimer v1.3, which adds most of the features that have been requested. I'll update the first post with more info soon, but if you were on the fence before about buying it you definitely should look at it again.
Also - this version has an ad for SpeedCubeShop.com, but you can easily disable it (for free) by tapping on the ad, then selecting 'Disable ads'. Most major new feature is different scramblers for 2x2 - 11x11, Megaminx, Pyraminx, Clock and Square-1, but there are lots of other small features I'll detail in the first post.

Not at this stage. If it is highly successful on iOS then we'll consider it on Android, but otherwise it's not worth the investment and effort. The code is also very platform specific, and would require an almost complete rewrite to be 'ported'.

Update 1.3.1 has been released, which includes the ability to add penalties. Now we have checked off all the features on our 'list to implement'. Is there anything else that we should add? Any more things it would need for you to buy it? Take a look at CamCuber's video in the first post if you want to see what it's like with the updates.

Update 1.4 is out! This one includes a scramble reader for 2x2 and 3x3, OH and BLD options for solves, Average of 12, random-state 2x2 scrambler, and an option to display a statistic on the timer screen. Unfortunately, a couple of bugs slipped through, so we're making an update to address these issues.
Mods: I want to create a new thread for CubeTimer, as the majority of this thread applies to the initial release, which is far removed from the last few versions in terms of functionality. However, I was hesitant because that might be considered spamming - I haven't personally contributed much to the forums, preferring to 'lurk'. Would creating a new thread be an issue, or should I leave this as is?
