If you have any ideas on how to improve it, without sacrificing its simplicity, please let me know here or by PM.

It's fantastic as it is and I'm using it right now (in a desperate attempt) to learn the Tamariz stack.
Maybe, in addition to measuring the time for each card reveal, I would add a total time for the whole "game".
Thanks for your help and bravo!

Thanks, Degio, for the compliment and the suggestion.

Giving the total elapsed time for the whole deck is certainly possible. Currently the app measures the time in seconds (and not in ms) as I thought that a finer granularity was not necessary. When I practice my stack (using the manual timing setting) I answer (tap) under one second and the clock still shows "00". Therefore, I would go through the whole deck in 0 seconds. Quite a feast!

Changing the clock to use ms is not a big deal though and I will certainly consider it. Would two clocks, side by side, showing current card time and the cumulative time, be a good idea, or would it be too distracting and showing the total only at the end be better?

To be honest, anyone answering each card test in less than 1sec is not going to spend extra time to read the partial clock in millisec, so I would keep the current granularity.
I would use millisec as "internal" measure though, so you can correctly calculate the total time for a game.
In other words: the 2 variables should be both measuring partial and total times in millisec, but both should be displayed rounded into sec.
Showing the total only at the end or showing two clocks side by side are both valid options: either would work.
Many thanks for taking suggestions into consideration!
