iOS apps of the day [April 3, 2012]

iOS has over 600,000 apps. With so many apps out there, app discovery (aka finding new and useful apps) is extremely difficult. With our iOS Apps of the Day initiative, dotTech aims to change that. Everyday we post three apps, allowing our readers to discover new apps, daily. Enjoy! [Subscribe to our iOS section to never miss an article: RSS Feed | E-mail]

iGameClock Premium

iGameClock Premium is an app that can be used in a tournament or even just a simple gamey of chess with a friend. You could also use this time clock for any other two player games like checkers, othello, backgammon, and many others. You can set all sort of time controls like sudden death, hourglass, Japanese Byoyomi, Canadian overtime, Bronstein delay, Fischer delay, and penalty.

This app also clears the  display that is easy to use, you can set each clock independently, highlights the currently running clock, it also count out the total moves of each player, you can pause and resume the game, and you have the option to turn the sounds on or off.  The app will show who the winner of the game, and it prevents your device from going to sleep so it will stay active. The HD version just looks a little fancier but appears to have the same features as the version that can be used on the iPhone and iPod Touch.
