Just started using this. Only thing I wish it had was an audible tone like a Seiko watch at 0. Otherwise it is a great tool.

Long winter of no use but I got to use the app again today and as usual it worked flawlessly and was easy to use and see.
Tasks were 6-6-8-8-10-10

I have an updated version of GliderTimer in the works, but to be honest, life has conspired to interfere with wrapping it up. I still plan to get that out eventually, and as part of that I'll take advantage of any new iOS 8 features that look interesting.

Are you having any particular problems with it on iOS 8? It's been working fine for me, although that's just a sample size of one.

If anyone's having problems, I can focus on fixing bugs instead of adding the new features I've been working on.

Here is a bump for the this app.
I'm not the only one seen using this app at large contests, it works great!

Thanks, guys. I appreciate it. To be honest, I wrote it mostly for myself, and I've been using it for F3K timing every contest, and it's about perfect for that. I'm glad to hear others find it useful as well.

As for an Android version, I have been playing around with Android programming, but I have a *long* way to go before I'll be competent enough to build GliderTimer for Android. I'll say it's a possibility, but I can't make any promises.

I have been using it ever since you created this app, still love it, use it in our ALES contests on 3 of my iPhones for loaners, great for practice, my only wish right from the beginning is still optional 5 or 10 sec launch window so I can hit the timer and get ready for launch when practicing alone. Otherwise it is simple and perfect.
Thanks
Dan
