Darkroom timer app

Postby Robprophoto » Tue Sep 19, 2017 12:30 pm

Requesting these features to be added:

Variable Start delay

Allow the user to go back in the app while developing so that they can look up their new development times/dilutions to begin mixing chemicals for the next batch

I want to add a wash cycle between my fixer and my hypo clear steps. Can't do it...?

The idea of a variable start delay has been added to our list for possible future inclusion. Thanks!

In terms of allowing the user to navigate in the app while a timing phase is active, this is problematic for a variety of reasons, but we will also add it to the list of items for possible future inclusion.

The Darkroom Lab Timer (http://www.digitaltruth.com/apps/darkroomlabtimer/) will allow you to add a Wash step prior to Hypo Clear.

In the Massive Dev Chart Timer app, you can edit the Fixer phase so that "Fixing A" is the Fixer step and "Fixing B" is the Wash step you want to add. Although you will not be able to label "Fixing B" step as being a Wash, it will work effectively to allow the functionality you desire. You can see how to do this in the User Guide here: http://www.digitaltruth.com/apps/mdc/md ... t.php?temp

I have just downloaded the Darkroom Lab Timer app, it looks to be just what I want. Thank you for developing it.

Could I add a request for a feature (or two)?
- 5 or 10 seconds before a timer is due to expire would it be possible to add the pips as an audio reminder?
- when showing the timer in red/green 'mode' the programme title vanishes, could this be shown too?

Thank you for posting, your input is really helpful.

The agitation sequence includes 3 seconds of audio pips each time it is about to commence, so you could use this feature to warn you that the alarm will go off by invoking it just prior to the end of the timer sequence. Because agitation can be set in this way, there is a potential conflict if we add the ability to warn you 5-10 secs before the timer is due to expire; however, it is a good suggestion so we will discuss this with the software team and add it to the list of feature requests.

Regarding the disappearance of the title in safelight mode, this was designed to limit the amount of light which is emitted in this mode, but it is not consistent across all platforms so we will add this to our list of issues to investigate further.
