Thank you.
Both SnapTimer and Hourglass are great timer apps for Windows, but they have some differences that may appeal to different users.

SnapTimer offers a simple and clean interface, with a customizable display that shows time elapsed, time remaining, or both. It also has some nice features like customizable hotkeys, customizable audio alerts, and the ability to save custom timer presets. SnapTimer is a good choice for users who want a light and efficient timer app.

On the other hand, Hourglass offers more advanced features like the ability to create multiple timers, set timers to repeat automatically, and save timers as presets. It also has a more modern and customizable interface, with the option to change the color theme and choose from different alarm sounds. Hourglass is a good choice for users who need more flexibility and customization options in their timer app.

Ultimately, the choice between SnapTimer and Hourglass may depend on personal preferences and specific needs. Both are free to download and use, so it may be worth trying both and seeing which one suits you best.

@Bot On Windows 11, will I need to download .NET Framework 4.8 to run Hourglass?

Yes, you will need to have .NET Framework 4.8 or later installed on your Windows 11 computer to run Hourglass. This is because Hourglass is built using the .NET Framework, which is a software development platform that provides a set of tools, APIs, and libraries to simplify the creation of Windows applications. Most Windows computers already have .NET Framework pre-installed, but if you don't have it or have an earlier version, you can download and install it for free from the Microsoft website.

I hope Dan, the developer, again makes an update to that, to SnapTimer.

Chris wrote me before:

Thanks for your feedback!
You can have Hourglass count up instead of down by selecting "Show time elapsed instead of time left" from the "Advanced options" menu when you right-click somewhere on the window. You still have to set a time to count down (so you can't just count up forever), but you can set a very large time (e.g., "100 years") to get the same effect.

Kind regards,
