What's New

Stay out of time-trouble! We made the clock digits a bit easier to read, and added a few other minor improvements. If you like this clock, you can really help us out by giving it a fresh, 5-star review in the App Store! Thank you so much!

App Description

Replace your chess clock with this free game timer! It's easy to use, yet fully featured to handle any time control. 100% free: no in-app purchases, no ads!

Choose your time control and you're ready to play. The 2nd player presses her button to start the 1st player's clock - and the game is on!

FEATURES
- Large, easy-to-read buttons
- Works in landscape and portrait on all devices
- Quickly customize the app for one-tap access to all your favorite time controls
- Time controls include base minutes per player and optional per-move delays or bonus time. The app supports both Fischer and Bronstein increments, as well as simple delays. The duration is up to you!
- Supports multiple-stage time controls commonly seen in tournaments, such as "40 moves in 2 hours + game in 60 minutes." A glance at the clock shows your current stage!
- Support for handicapping lets you set different time controls for each player!
- You can adjust the time remaining on the fly, in the middle of your game, for either or both players!
- Clock pauses automatically if the app is interrupted; manually pause the clock at any time
- Pleasant sounds for buttons and "time's up" alert

At Chess.com, we really do love chess, and *sometimes* we even play it offline! For times like that, we created this clock - and we hope you love it as much as we do.
