Temporalium — The Awesome Time Calculator
By Franz Bruckhoff
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Temporalium is a fun date and time calculator. Calculate the difference between dates, or add timespans to a start date to find the result date. View the resulting timespan in any combination of time units you like.
Welcome to the least minimal app ever made.
Imagine a robo-futuristic user interface designed in 3D with real mechatronics in mind. A crazy interface which can transform from one state to another like the giant robots in this cool movie that starts with a “T”. Imagine super cool physically-based sound effects. A fast spinning wheel that seamlessly transforms into a keypad with hyper-realistic mechatronic sounds. A time unit selection ring that rotates, clicks and snaps in place. Lots of little lights that toggle on and off in a cool way when you press and hold a segment on the ring. A pleasing, highly experimental settings interface with depth. And a morphing result display with a combinatoric explosion so big that artificial intelligence was required to determine the animation pathways.
≈ Features ≈
+ 7 time units: Years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds.
+ Calculate how much time passed since any date. Down to the second.
+ Calculate the date for any time interval from now.
+ Calculate how much time passes between two dates.
+ Freely adjust the result display. Individually toggle years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds on or off by double-tapping the unit on the ring.
+ Solo-select any time unit by long-pressing it on the ring.
+ Reactivate all units by long-pressing the solo unit on the ring.
+ Change the origin date any time, and Temporalium automatically adds the entered positive or negative timespan to calculate the result date on the fly.
+ Add or subtract date intervals.
+ Add or subtract simple timespans such as +2 hours or -5 days.
+ Add or subtract decimals in brackets. Divide or multiply timespan input in-line.
+ Copy & paste dates.
+ Enable or disable temporal collation.
≈ Fun Factors ≈
+ Robo-futuristic, polished tactile audio-visual interface.
+ More than 40 sound effects.
+ Physically-based procedural sound effects.
+ Animations using inverse kinematics, driven by artificial intelligence.
+ Morph-transitions. Very cool.
+ Chuck-N division by zero. Useless, but cool.
+ Show-off ready!
What's New in Version 1.2.1
- Bug fixes.
- Enhanced date editing. Now you can tap date components directly to select them.
- Subtle sound enhancements.
Good app, but no iPhone 5 support.
Missing one star for: no iPhone 5 support. Please fix! Four stars for: it looks cool, after you learn how to use it it's easy, it's quick and has sound effects that are not too long and go along with the action you're doing. It's a good app, I use it from time to time. The categories are from seconds to a year, and you can change the views of time that the results are.
Very Well Done
One of the nicest apps I've seen. Beautiful and Fluid interface. Good effects. There are but two problems I've come against: Sometimes when changing between AM & PM, the time just previously entered for minutes resets to zero. The other problem is there is no sound effects. But all-in-all - GREAT APP
It serves no point, but it is very satisfying to spin the thing.
I could spin that jet engine thing all day, it is relaxing.
