Stopwatch style Timer - works on PC browser but not mobile (no javascript used)

May 07, 2020


Thanks to this forum, I found a simple solution to a timer where I have a 1 frame layer that loops and decreases a timer variable.

The issue is once I set the timer variable to a dial (360 degrees), it stops working on Safari and Google Chrome on my iPhone), while being functional on my PC.

Please have a look at my story - to start the timer, click on the top button of the stopwatch.

Thank you!  I ended up creating a new layer which has a 60 second video clip of the timer. When the scene loads, it determines if the user is having an issue with the timer based on the counter variable.  If it does not increment, I show the video layer, and have a trigger to wait for the end of the movie.
