[Req] Chess tournament style clock
Im not a chess player, but I like the chess clock used for tournaments, it can be adapted to a lot of board games where you need to time each player move or play the entire game within a specified amount of time.
here is a pic of it:
I envisioned an app to do the following:
split the screen and show two big clocks, have a settings screen where you can enter player 1 and player 2 names, the amount of time the game will last, and the sound it will use once one player hits the max time.
On the main screen, as I said, two clocks will be shown, once any of the two clocks is tapped it will start counting down time.
When the player stops his clock, the instant after he makes his move on the game board, the other clock starts to countdown and the first one stops. Vibating feedback for clock press would be a nice touch too.
Hope it can be developed, I had great luck asking for a score keeping app time ago (THANKS Psycho) hopefully the history repeats.
Thanks in advance.
exists as webapp, not good enough
There are a couple of web apps for this. But we should try to create a native app. Anybody willing to help? http://www.sitography.com/iphone/chessclock/. Which brings me to another question. Why can't we access cached web pages on the iPhone Safari browser?
