How FFXI PDA Recast Timers Work
Tap a timer after using an ability in-game and let FFXI PDA provide at-a-glance status to aid you in battle. FFXI PDA tracks and displays readiness, duration and recharge times for any combination of main and subjob abilities.

There's a lot of information to keep track of in Final Fantasy XI, much of it not covered by the in-game interface. There's no easy way to access the all-important airship schedules or the often-loathed Race Specific Equipment quest eligibility. Since the game has been out for several years, there are naturally more than a few applications to track these events... but due to the game's issues with alt-tabbing, they require a bit of a workaround for the player. Now there's another option available to anyone with an iPhone or an iPod Touch -- a new app from Duodyne Studios.
Although not officially affiliated with Square-Enix, the application is aimed at giving players easy access to the most commonly needed timers. That includes a recast timer feature that allows players to simply tap the ability when they use it, followed by an alert on the phone when it becomes ready again. It's not as useful as simple macro checks for short abilities like Provoke, but longer abilities will benefit from having the timer feature. At $0.99 for players in the US and comparable prices for other markets, Final Fantasy XI players might want to take a look.> Full article (now via Engadget)
★★★★★ • "A 100% must"
USA - by Mrfrodough - Version 1.1
"Since the recent update where they added precise RSE, elemental day, moonphase timers and more, I would very much recomend this app for any serious FFXI player."
★★★★★ • "Beautiful design!"
USA - by Kaibelf - Version 1.0.1
"Really a nice app! Great clock design, an clean, intuitive layout.
Definitely worth the buck!"
★★★★★ • "Taru of the cute variety!"
USA - by Triphazard - Version 1.0.1
"Great app! Beautifully designed! Wish I had this years ago!
★★★★★ • "Great FFXI app"
USA - by Ottsider - Version 1.0
"Excellent Final Fantasy XI app, works great and looks beautiful.
Easily worth the cost."
★★★★ • "Needs spell timers"
USA - by Dragon warrior reborn - Version 1.0.1
"The timers work great, but the app needs spell timers or at the least a way for us to great our own timers. I would love a timer for Phalanx with & without Composure job ability in effect. That would make this app a must buy for FFXI players."
★★★★ • "Great, but spells would be nice..."
USA - by WalkAgain4 - Version 1.0.1
"I love this app and use it often. I find myself actually using my 2 hour now that I see it at the top! ;) I also love the weakness/miscellaneous ability timers. The airship/ferry schedule definitely has improved my efficiency and lower my stress in wondering how long I have to get to the dock."
★★★★ • "Great app but should be free"
USA - by FunkyFish25 - Version 1.0.1
"It's been a great app so far. It's been helping me keep track of in game days while at work so I can plan out my trial of the magians work when I get home. Simple and effective but should be free. 5 star app if free. 4 stars for now."
★★★★ • "Great app"
AUS - by Woktaru - Version 1.1
"There are a few of these apps out there and this one was the first I got. I like the compass clock thingy --works very well-- the timers are ok but pretty useless. I used this app for the magian trials so I wasn't wasting my time online and checking the guild opening closing times were handy too. There are other apps that do pretty much the same thing but I just liked this one the best."
