I'm watching a stream and the player has some sort of mod to tell them buff/dragon/baron timers. It does a countdown kinda, saying 1 minute...30 seconds....etc.

Is something like this actually allowed? It feels pretty cheap to me.

I'm not sure if Riot has actually said that these are againt the rules, but most people frown against it.

Does it automatically figure out when the buffs are respawning?

Say, some guy stole your blue, two minutes later you found out. Does the timer say 3 minutes to respawn? (Blue and Red buffs take 5 minutes to respawn)

I view it more as smartcasting timers. Considering they added time stamps, which may or may not help with keeping dragon timers, I'd imagine it isn't cheating.

I think it's frowned upon, but I don't think it's illegal o_o
Maybe in tournaments or something...

A jungle timer app was allowed by riot because you press a button to start the count down, its nothing different than just using a watch countdown, so riot is okay with it.
But its not that hard to remember timers, its 1:00 for small camps, 5:00 for buffs, 6:00 dragon and 7:00 Baron

I just set the timer on my keyboard for dragon/barron.

many top junglers in games will even say what time dragon/baron/buffs spawn in chat in solo queue. If you watch Oddone he does it all the time, but for some using the app is easier.

I'm gonna watch the beginning of this next game and see if it tells him when the enemy blue is up.

Edit: Ah okay, someone else asked and he uses this: http://www.jungletimer.com/

It's allowed but programs that do jungle timers for you are a crutch, they would never allow them during a lan tournament and you are just having a timer for yourself and not your teammates. Get into the habit of writing down jungle timers now its harder to break the habit otherwise.
