Powerful stopwatch to measure elapsed time with lap and split time modes - easy to use, mod and functional.

Best Stopwatch is great for timing sport events and contests (it is accurate to 1/100 of a second) as well as just timing your activities or measure an event duration.

Ratings and Reviews


I like it!

I have a few different stopwatch apps for variety. Although my most-used one is the built-in Apple stopwatch that is part of the Apple Clock app, Best Stopwatch is my favorite out of my alternatives, as I like the slick neon color appearance and the easy differentiation between the stop and lap functions. If you are going to use any stopwatch other than the one Apple builds in, this is the one to get! I’m taking off only one star because I do agree with others that it could be a bit more readable - perhaps with a sharper and/or bigger font - but even so, I think it’s very good as is, especially as a free app.

Needs bigger start button

Nice timer. Needs bigger start button for swimming starts. Usually a swimming timer is forced to do a blind start of the event because their eyes must be on the official (or flashing light). We try to keep our finger on the right place on the screen but it is easy to miss if you are not looking right at it. A bigger start button would help.


Poor background color choice. Hard to read. Not separately configurable

The background color includes a glowing effect around the text (and the same color as the text) making it extremely difficult to make out the text.

Basic black would be fine, or program needs to be able to independently set background color regardless of text color.
