Hourglass Timer

Hourglass Timer



Hourglass Timer is a unique timer different from all the other timers on the App Store. It supports switching between portrait and landscape modes automatically when you hold your iPhone or iPod touch horizontally or vertically and shows you a timer with clear numbers and an animated golden hourglass. While the time is running, the sand in the hourglass is falling, which let you see the passing time vividly.

Any activity that needs a high-precision timer can use Hourglass Timer, such as speech practice, meeting, cooking, sport, or game, etc.


- Switch between portrait and landscape modes automatically when you hold your iPhone or iPod touch horizontally or vertically.

- In portrait mode, the height of hourglass and time areas can be adjusted as you like by dragging the middle bar.

- The time can be defined in hours/minutes/seconds.

- The timer can be paused, resumed or reset by pressing the relevant buttons, or shake to pause or resume with a tip sound.

- You can define an alarm sound for the end of the timer or enable vibration, or enable a flashing popup window.

- When 30 seconds left, it warns with a Tic-Tac sound and the numbers are changed into blue from white.

- Supports countdown mode.

- In case, the application quits while the timer is active, the timer will continue working till the application restarts.

- The options you set in Settings panel can be saved for later use when you restart the application.

- Sleep mode is not activated while time is running.

Vibration features require the iPhone. It doesn't work on the iPod touch.

Good start

OK app. Nice visuals, but doesn't adjust rate of sand for amount of time selected. I like the flexibility of setting different times. Would be great to have built in presets for popular board games.

0/5 stars


This is not a visual hourglass timer. The sand just drains out in a few seconds then the timer flips over and starts again, the sand draining has nothing to do with the actual time left. Ripoff!

2/5 stars

Wanted Hourglass, not a Computer 'BUSY' Cursor

The hourglass is nice looking, but as the other reviews say, the speed of the falling sand needs to be synchronized to the time set. Version 1.0 looks exactly like a animated computer 'busy' cursor, flipping over every 3 to 4 seconds. I will upgrade to a 5 star review, if SourceTec Software turns this into a real hourglass as opposed to a busy cursor.
