How do I AirPlay my tournament?

With AirPlay, you can stream the tournament alerts (audio and text-to-speech) to your Apple TV, or AirPort Express or AirPlay-enabled speakers.

And with AirPlay Mirroring, you can display your iOS screen on your Apple TV — so you can see the Poker Timer app on your big screen TV!

Here's a great article on Apple's Support website that explains how to do it:

Help! The Poker Timer app crashes back to the home screen every time it plays an alert!

On some iPhones and iPads the Text-to-speech subsystem has a problem that causes the Poker Timer app to crash back to the home screen when it tries to play a Text-to-speech alert.

Here are some steps you can take to see if the Text-to-speech subsystem is working on your device. In many cases, going through these steps resets the Text-to-speech subsystem so that it no longer causes the Poker Timer app to crash.

How do I adjust the Play Timer duration?

The Play Timer (the stopwatch used to make sure a player doesn't take too long to play) can be adjusted to between 5 and 60 by doing the following:
  1. Tap the Play Timer button in the tournament timer screen. The Play Timer button looks like a stopwatch with a spade as the timer hand.
  2. Once the Play Timer opens, tap it to pause it.
  3. With it paused, drag the spade to point to the time you want to start the timer at — any 5 second interval between 5 and 60 seconds.
  4. Tap the Play Timer to start it again. The next time you tap the Play Timer button, the timer will start at the duration you set.
