Product Description

An app to assist with the timing of penalties in Roller Derby.

*Fully updated for the March 1st, 2014 WFTDA Ruleset, with 30 second penalties*

Features include:

* Can be used to time one or two teams
* Audio / visual / vibrate reminder when 10 seconds are remaining
* All timers can be paused, resumed, or reset individually or simultaneously
* Team names and colours can be customised on two teams screen
* Timer backgrounds can be customized. Add your League's logo, team photo, or any image you like.
* Auto Airplane mode automatically switches your phone to Airplane mode when the app is launched, and switches it off when you quit the app. This prevents the timer being interrupted by an incoming call. (Not available on devices running Android 4.2 and above.)
* Preferences allow you to customize reminder time, which screen to open on, reminder tone and/or vibrate, and to prevent accidental closure of the timer when pressing the back key
* Choose vibrate or tone or both to signal reminder time and timer expiry
* Adjustable penalty period
* App can prevent display from dimming / timing out during use.
* Can add or remove 30 seconds from an individual timer if the player is given a 1 minute penalty instead of the standard 30 seconds.
* AutoJammer mode allows you to switch penalty times between jammers automatically. Times can also be swapped manually. App automatically handles WFTDA 6.3.1. and 6.3.11.
* Support for WFTDA 6.3.2 where both jammers are sent to the Penalty box at the same time.
* Based on WFTDA rules, March 1st, 2014 edition.

Please give me your feedback and suggestions so I can make the app as useful and easy to use as possible. Thanks!

This app is great, especially if you're left manning the penalty box by yourself. It's very easy to use and is a godsend

5.0 out of 5 stars Old person for Penality Timer for Roller Derby 1 Jun 2014
By William A Ingels - Published on

I am new to this new derby, but had worked with the old. So the penalty is different. For some
one new to the job this works well. I am not sure if they can use this at bouts, but for practice,
with limited help this timer really works and saves time for more practice. Give it
a try and if it dos not work you will have learned some thing, for low cost.

Captivate running Cyanogenmod. I have used this app for two games so far and it made running the box a lot easier. One wish item is to be able to increase the the time by one minute on the fly.

Does exactly what it says it does very well. Version 1.18 has some scaling issues on a kindle fire, but I think these will be fixed when 1.19 makes it to Amazon.
