When using the Tactics Trainer on a PC, the timer starts at 0 and counts upwards. However when using the app version on an iPad it counts down from some set limit. What does this limit mean? I initially thought that after reaching 0 then you will start to lose points, but I can solve problems well under this limit and be rewarded with -ve scores. It seems like an entirely pointless feature given that the best thing to do seems to be to ignore it.
I would be happy to be able to hide the timer cause it distracts from actually solving the puzzle and stresses me. Also it's weirs that it's different from the pc?
I read that you could hide it on pc. I love playing on the iPad, but the occasional glitches can beannoying. Thenew version is much better though:)
