Editors' Review


Red Crab Cube Timer is a stopwatch application designed to time how fast it takes you to solve Rubik's Cube. Those who enjoy trying to solve the cube as fast as possible can use this free tool to add some flair to the timing process.

The program's interface is basic and easy to navigate but not very attractive. You can choose a plain background or one of 12 illustrated backgrounds as a backdrop for the timer, which appears at the center of the screen. All of the illustrated backgrounds have a psychedelic look that isn't particularly appealing, though some users may like them. If you don't like the colorful backgrounds, you can always go with the plain background, which is seriously plain, but at least it's easier on the eyes. The program saves your time each time you start and stop the timer, so you can use that feature to challenge yourself again and again. The timer keeps track of minutes and seconds, and you can start and stop it quickly by pressing the space bar on your computer, which makes it extremely easy to use. There's no real Help file, and selecting Help from the drop-down menu takes you to the program's Web page, which doesn't offer much information. The program is pretty self explanatory, luckily.

If you're not into Rubik's Cube, Red Crab Cube Timer isn't going to be much use to you, unless you're looking for a festive stopwatch. It's free, so grab it and start twisting.

"Great peace of software for what it is."

Backgrounds are pretty pretty, space bar functionality is great, timing is accurate, and the ability to set a 3-2-1 countdown or an inspection time is really helpful. Get's you into a competition feel for solving a cube.


Limited backgrounds, limited inspection times, if you accidentally start the time there is now way to pause it, you have to let it run, no ability to delete a specific time, single purpose, doesn't save times after you close window.


This software really can only serve one purpose, because unless you're using it to time yourself solving a Rubik's cube (or I guess other puzzle) than there are other better timers out there. What's nice about this is that it's good for emulating a competition, with inspection times and such, as well as using the biggest button to start and stop the timing. However, it does have it's quirks, such as never displaying a 0 in the ten seconds place, so your times might look like:
Kind of confusing. Also, why time the hundredths place? At least 30 of those pass from the time you finish the cube to the time you press the button. But hey, it is what it is, and I have recorded some of my best times on this thing. Definitely check it out.
