Hi all,

I have created a simple and light-weighted timer for Speedcubers.
Please try it and give me feedback on how to improve it.
Thanks.

• Alternate colours in the scramble for easy reading.
• Able switch off alternate scramble colour.
• Auto change font size of the scramble depending on the scramble length for easy reading.
• Shows your personal bests, current averages, best averages and lifetime average.
• Display your singles, average of 5 and 12 in line graph.
• Tracks memorize time for blindfold puzzles.
• Able to switch between "Dark" and "Light" themes.

Hey!

Really nice program! Just one little thing, the "Speedcubing Timer" bar, move out of the screen, and shifts the whole activity up. The upward movement of the numbers bugs me a bit haha. Overall very good though!

Thanks for your comments.
I hide the title bar so that it don't accidentally get into the way when cuber tap to stop the timer.

Thanks for the support.
I have uploaded the v1.6 that allows creating of custom puzzles.
It may take 1-2 hrs for it to be shown in Google Play Store.

Please give your comments after using it. :)

Custom puzzle is the best choice. Great app so far!

Hi all,

I am currently working on the following:
1. Enter Timing Manually (if stackmat timer is used).
2. Best Average of 5 statistic.

For "Export to CSV" feature, is it to export the selected puzzle timings from the database or the whole database into a CSV file?

For the next feature, should it be "Export to CSV" or "Custom Puzzle"?

Very nice app. My wishlist:

Ad-free version - I'm happy to pay for an app to get rid of ads.
Bigger scramble font - It's a bit hard to read from a distance.
Graphing of past times - Seeing a graph over time is my favorite feature of KingEN timer which is still my main Android timer.
Next Scramble - I like to generate scrambles for untimed practice and there's no way to do that right now without starting and stopping the timer and deleting the time.
