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.

Developer's Description

Red Crab Cube Timer is a multi-functional computerised stopwatch application that avid speed cubers can use to time solves. There are many features included in Red Crab Cube Timer making timing solves much easier and more suited to your way of speed cubing. The latest version of Red Crab Cube Timer, version 1.3, adds extra functionality so that you can customise the program to your needs. For example the themes section has been redesigned to allow you to create any theme you like, whether that is a background image, plain colour, or even gradients. Another addition to Red Crab Cube Timer is the statistics view where you can see your performance over time, presented through a line graph, and if you solve speeds have been getting quicker or slower. The times area, where your solve speeds appear, has also been redesigned to make it simpler to use and make it more informative. The fastest solve time in the list is highlighted in red, and a delete button is located next to each solve time. Finally there is now a written documentation in the form of a PDF file which describes and explains all of the features in Red Crab Cube Timer.
