    It's not bad but seems very prone to error based on connection. For an experiment I tried timing at one location and then immediately moved 50m away and timed again. There was a 1s difference just from reconnecting.

    Really good app has been very useful tracking my watches. Actually better than an electronic way of checking a watch as its personal to you and you go through your day.

    I like but a bit too simple. Needs check boxes on the side of each calculation for quick delete of a series of timings. Also the font is too hard to read on my 6" phone.

    This app is simply amazing and a must have for any true watch enthusiast. Track multiple pieces and track where they're keeping time (work or on the winder). Reminders to log daily updates, learn if your watch is accurately inaccurate or if it's all over the place for accurate regulation.

    I love the functionality of the app. I cannot support an app that places ads on my lock screen. Ads in the app are ok but, when it's not running and has ads that take over my screen when I unlock the phone, that's a non-starter for me. Programs need support but, this is far too intrusive. Let me know if you decide to not push ads on my phone when I am not using the app.

    Is it just me...? But I fail to see how this app can judge the accuracy of a mechanical watch anymore than a computer clock. Analytically it does little regarding the physical movement of the watch but sets a stop watch to the ntp in effect Sorry but I just don't see the benefits anymore than syncing to a computer and checking at any given point to analyse any time lost or gained.

    Good app, I have tried a few of these and this one is the only one I haven't immediately uninstalled due to expecting payment or not syncing the time with a reliable source consistently. The reviews here from people who can't understand how to use the app make me shake my head in wonder at how they manage to even use a phone. The people expecting a timegrapher need to wake up and smell the coffee.

    People seem to be confused that the app somehow turns your phone into a fully functioning electronic timegrapher that acoustically measures the watch beat, rate, amplitude, etc... That is not what it does. It does however, with an element of human error notwithstanding, provide a free method for you to measure and record the rate at which your timepiece is gaining or losing against a consistent reference time (GPS/time server). Saves you from doing any of the math necessary. Very useful app.

    App is very good. A graph display would be helpful.

    I've just started using this for my watches. One thing I really want would be the ability to sort the watches by name. As one's watch collecting changes, the list gets really messy.

    Works very well. I really wish the "Measure (seconds to :00)"-button was bigger, i.e. easier to tap when measuring. Also, it would be great if the results could be exported to CSV.

    Would be simpler if the time could be set not only on an exact minute. Strangely the timing with this app is always about one seconde later than the "exact" time reported by atomic watch. Nice the app allows to store different watch positions. The settings of the temperature could be improved with user defined values. Thanks for this app. I wish it could be improved and better timing possibilitiese
