This app records the start and finish times of each act, then it calculates the running and playing times* for you.

Should the unexpected happen, and you need to stop the show for some reason, you can add show stop timers. These extra timers record the start and end time of each stop, as well as the length of time the show was stopped for. One less thing for you to worry about under pressure!

At the end of the show you can share your show timings using the share option.

You can customise your shows structure in the settings, adding as many acts or intervals as you need. You can also rename acts and reorder your timers.

A history page displays up to seven days worth of shows, allowing you to see how many you were able to get started on time!

Please get in touch with any issues or feature requests for future releases by contacting us @SMStopwatch on Twitter.

*The running time is the total amount of time between curtain up on Act One and Curtain down on act two. The playing time only includes the amount of time the performance is in progress, excluding the time for the interval and any show stops.

This app has literally changed the game when it comes to show timings. Thank you to the creators and all who have made its existance possible. No longer do you need to fuss and fiddle with multiple timers or bother adding and subtracting from stopwatch laps. It records everything you need and the act structure customization is a great addition.

The only note I would give is it's a little troubling how easy it is to reset the timer. It would be nice if there were a warning message or other type of notification to confirm the reset.

Perfect for SMs

Thanks for creating this app for us! I’d love to see 1) the ability to add scenes within acts 2) formatting in mind for timing the show in rehearsal not just show mode. Like a stop and reset without having to finish the show. I end up tapping my way through the acts and intervals to get to the reset button. And 3) the ability to create multiple shows and name the shows. When working in rep, different shows have different numbers of acts and scenes. THANKS!

Needs IPad Availability

I love this app, I use it and recommend it to people all the time. I feel it needs an iPad app tho, many theaters have dedicated iPads for lighting and sound control. This is a great app for any theater persons arsenal.
