Great tool. This works very well if you read the the instructions in detail. It needs some tweaking for your particular device before its ready to work properly.

Impressed with this! I didn't really need this app - it was more to do with curiosity, to see if I could improve the regulation of the few mechanical watches I have. I saw good write-ups on a couple of sites, and, realistically, at a fraction of the cost of a pint of beer, it was worth a go. Downloaded and installed it this morning, on my ZTE Blade Q-mini (pretty much the bottom of the heap, as smart phones go), worked through the tutorial video a bit at a time, and it worked a treat. (You really do, however, need a quiet spot to work with it!) Two watches done (wrist-watches, not pocket watches) - theoretically improved from gaining 2 to 3 minutes a day to within a few seconds - we'll see how they perform on my wrist in due time. Irrespective of how well I've set up the watches, the software is excellent - many thanks, Keith - splendid job!

Very good but not an easy user experience Clearly written by an engineer for engineers but it's a powerful app once you spend a little time figuring it out. 4 stars as gui could be improved.

Finicky, but works after much tweaking, look forward to updates! I don't write many reviews, spent a lot of time with app. Happy to have it, wish was easier to use. Will pay again for standalone watch timing version! Pro is no better than Lite, paid to support! Keep at it! User interface is very complicated; terminology exclusive to engineers in this field? Frustrating, requires trial and error. Example: I'm constantly told to change the "threshold gap" and this is not a setting. Have read the tutorial several times and watched the youtube video again and again (it has no audio/spoken instructions). The app will not work for timing modern mechanical watches without adjusting a lot of settings. The main issue is gain level/mic. Gain level on Spectrum, dB is almost too low to register the beats (like an ETA 2892 for example) or is too high on Spectrum, Power, the app can't process. Probably works better for pocket watches/old loud ticking wristwatches. Using HTC One M8, has dual membrane HDR mic. Put the watch on top of the phone mic in order to get a signal the app can process. Watch often hits the back, home or google key (grrrr); rotate the UI to remove home icons etc from near mic and display is jumbled. Look forward to updates!
