With Hourglass (sandglass, sand clock, egg timer or german Sanduhr) measurement of time is more beautiful than ever before. Our great iPhone App simulates an hourglass very realistically: hourglass reflects light, sand flows naturally and smoothly, you can flip hourglass and more.

Supports multiple hourglasses simultaneously. Built-in backgrounds are accurate and have a luxury appearance. The Interface is clean, easily usable and realistic.

Nice Looking Hourglass App

Certainly the nicest looking hourglass app available. Unfortunately the tacked-on text overlay ruins the style a bit. There really should be an option to turn the text off entirely!

The faux-physics behind the sand animation could be improved (particularly when the hourglass is flipped), but it does the job. A lot of other iPhone hourglass apps don't even recognize tilting or allow you to flip the hourglass over.

Changing the background is a nice option, but additional hourglass skins would be even better - particularly a skin with a classic wooden hourglass frame or colored sand.

Swiping between different timers is easy and works just like flipping through your iPhone home screens.

Overall it's a nice fun app and aside from that annoying text, the rest of the issues are minor nitpicks.


This is one of the best ones! Great animation. I agree with the other reviewers that the text overlay kind of ruins the looks, would be nice to be able to turn it off.


Please update It to be like a real hourglass like the phisics of the sand falling down more people would buy it because people like the real thing
