# What are your favorite speedcubing tools/resources/apps/guides?

I'm looking to compile a list of core tools/resources that would be useful for all new speedcubers, and also tools that would be useful to daily solvers. Things like cstimer, the wiki, algdb, the forum, WCA database, apps, etc.

• What tools do you use every week that you find useful?
• What tools/resources did you find useful when you were starting out?

Discord scrambler bot (made by @ECuber YT) : https://discordbots.org/bot/423530119836073986 really useful when you are active on discord.
I use it because I can't find any scramblers more convenient than that.
!scramble: scrambles 3x3
!scramble (event) scrambles the event
MagicPuzzlePro(android only) (game)
Features various type of puzzles. Some of them are not physically possible. Has a WR of 180 days system (to keep you busy).
I've set a lot of world records (of 180 days) on that.
Edit: 88 records to be exact

Twisty Timer is also a really nice app, also android only.

alg.cubing.net (in Chrome), mpv (or any other video player) and youtube-dl for doing reconstructions. Some people also use AutoHotKey (or some other macro software) to type in triggers faster. And on the topic of reconstructions, there's the reconstruction database cubesolv.es.

Birdflu is a complete database of every last layer alg up to 17 moves and is useful for finding alternative ZBLL/OLLCP algs without having to spend a lot of CPU time.

https://gyroninja.net/zzct/zzct.html#page For all my CT algs, and it has a TSLE and TTLL trainer.

I use Block Keeper for timing.

nemisizer.com
it has cool stats
not terribly useful as a practical tool though

bestsiteever.ru/zbll
zbll alg trainer
probably too advanced for a beginner

ctimer.co.uk
I usually use cs but I'm less likely to go do 200 solves on this one

Thanks for sharing my bot It has quite a few scramblers, doing !scramble <2/4/5/6/7/skewb/pyra/mega/sq1/clock> will spit out a scramble in the discord channel you're in. I'm going to be updating 4-7, wide moves are represented as lowercase, and for bigger cubes the scrambles aren't usable at all just yet.

I use cubexplorer a lot, i wish i knew a bit of java or c++ or w/e because i feel.. well... it could be way better really easily (i mean all the hard job is done making more settings like adding r and such turns as QTM or HTM should be fairly easy, right?)

Cubingtime.com is a not-so-well-known timer

Thecubicle.us, SpeedCubeShop, cubedepot, etc.

Good list so far. If you have any others, please go ahead and share them. We're trying to put together a little resource page for cubers to reference the best resources in the community.

speed-cmos.com is a very nice timer, still in developement which saves your times on a server so you dont have these random ****-all-my-solves-are-gone like it happens on cstimer
