I've been using Hourglass for a few months now and I've questioned myself several times why I ever wasted time with timer apps on Android (or the built-in windows tool called "Alarms & Clock") without looking up better alternatives beforehand. When I've hit the maximum limit of pre-configured timers on the native Windows application, I was annoyed enough to look for alternatives - and I've found it.

Hourglass is FOSS done right: It covers all the features you want from your dedicated timer app, looks sleek and has a dark theme. Thanks to the "smart input" implementation, I've been using this app for basically everything since I don't even have to lift my hands off the keyboard to start a new timer.

Hands down the best timer for Windows I have ever come across. Very well thought out and it looks great.

Hourglass runs on Windows but not iPhone. Can anyone recommend a similar timer for iPhone?

Yes it does. Maybe it was down when you tried it?

Also works as a handy years-to-hours converter.

Joking aside, it does what it's meant to, it's FOSS, and it even has a dark theme.
What more could you ask for?
