I am in the process of creating a timer made specifically for cubing. It will most likely be released in the beginning of 2020 Some features I have included are.

Calling out inspection times
Different sessions for every event so you can see what you average
Improvements to display screen
Low battery light
You can turn the timer to competition mode so that each button must be held for 3 seconds in order to prevent accidental timer resets

Please let me know your feedback. Thanks!

I can't wait! Will it be a downloadable desktop app or an internet one?

A 'ghost mode' would be an interesting addition - a light that starts flashing when your previous time is approaching, that type of thing. A metronome function for practice sessions would also be good...

I do like the idea but do you think that would be distracting if you saw you were about to hit a pb.
Metronome is a good idea.

What are some events that should be added

8x8
kilominx
master pyraminx
redi cube
let me know if there are any more!
qqtimer supports 8x8 up until around 14x14 but it's not in wca notation
you should add curvy copter because it seems to be a popular puzzle atm
a good thing to add is average of x,where you can call up a random number (i.e ao35) and get the average
also add a mean version of that too

holy cow this is exactly what we need. i think scrambles would be a little much however, maybe make a seperate thing for that for you to plug in if you want, same thing for the sessions for each event, ill probably follow up with a sketch when i get back from church. but great stuff otherwise
