Sands of Time




    A simple “Egg Timer." That plays “Big Ben striking 12" as an alert.

    Time is adjustable in 5 min steps up to a maximum of 60 mins by tapping the top or bottom of the hour glass.

    To start the timer, slide the peg out to the right. To stop and reset the timer slide the peg back in.

    This app has no special permissions apart from requiring the vibrator.

    My aim as a developer is to design elegant apps for myself, my family and friends. I then make them available for others to use. I minimise permissions, using only those that are actually required to make the app fulfill its specified functions.

    Please e-mail me at if you have any questions, comments or improvements.

    Can only select up to 60 minutes in 5 minutes increment. Lots of taps instead of 2 if there would be a numeric keyboard.

    This is a great app to remind you of tasks that you need to attend to in the next hour or less. I love being able to set a ten minute timer to remind me to hang out the washing or collect the children from swimming etc. The user interface is simple and intuitive. Brilliant. Thank you.
