    I've always had a problem with how the chess clock looks on pictures, and with the clunky design a lot of others have, it's embarrassing to share photos where you can see the app. No more with Magnus Chess Clock! The design is so beautiful that the clock suddenly can be the focus of my photos. Great job!

    This is the first chess clock for android I've seen that is actually readable, functional, easy to set up and customize, and requires zero permissions on your phone. No bloat, no junk. A Sincere thank you to the dev!
