This easy-to-use cooking timer prevents you from burning your meal or forgetting someting inportant while playing games or working with other programs.

You can wind up to 4 timers, each from 1 minute to 4 hours. Take your choice of four types of signals.
To wind a timer:
- Select a timer by tapping one of the four small dials to the right.
- Tap the big dial and move your finger clockwise.
- Tap the Run button.

You can close the timer and start playing games or work with other programs. In that case Spiral Times switches to background mode.
While active, timer starts blinking and ringing when the time comes up and does so until you tap the Reset button. In the background mode, the timer shows a message and gives up one signal every minute until you reopen it and tap the Reset button.

Ratings and Reviews

Great applications

Abbas Fathy

I have changed my mind after using it. This application will not sound alarm you if your iphone is a screen locked. You should open the mobile to receive the alarm. Its useless application. I will remove it till any further upgrade notification.

Good app


Good for a free app. This is the best timer I could find for my kids (I wanted something simple, with minutes arranged like a clock face to give them practice reading clocks). To start the timer, you touch "Run". To stop the timer, you touch "Reset". I wish they could just use "start" and "stop" or let you touch the timer itself to start/stop, but I can live with it. Also, it would be nice to preview the sounds when selecting them. On the plus side, it's very convenient the timer keeps going while you close the app and do other things (some others I looked at only worked in the background if you paid -- this is FREE!)

Very good- needs some improvement


Pros: Extremely clean design; Intuitive to set alarm times; Allows four individual alarms.
Cons: Only one alarm sound and it's too soft and indistinguishable. Would be much better to allow user to choose more sound files and sound the alarm in a progressively louder fashion, for example, double the loudness every 15 seconds.
Good job for v1.0.
