I’ve been reviewing apps here for a long time, but today I’m incredibly excited to announce that I’ve made an app of my own! Being an iOS developer has been a dream of mine for years, and I’m very proud of the app I’ve made. Please go check the app out and send me feedback on features you want added!
|Stand Hours – Download Now!|
Stand Hours is an app I created that helps you live healthier by sitting less and moving more throughout your day. If you work at a desk (like me), or are in school and spend lots of time doing homework (also like me), this is an easy way to become just a little bit healthier each day. Getting up and walking around for even just one minute (at least 100 steps) during an hour counts as a stand hour.
Stand Hours reads your step data from the Health app, which means it works with any fitness tracker that supports Apple Health (including the iPhone’s built-in pedometer).
Stand Hours also gives you hourly reminders throughout the day to get up and move around.
In addition to reading steps from Apple Health, Stand Hours can (optionally) export your stand hours to Apple Health. Yes, Apple Health has a metric called “Stand Hours,” but that can only be used by the Apple Watch. Instead, this app can store your stand hours as ANY activity metric in Apple Health – such as an empty one that you don’t use. It’s a great way to see this data in the Health app, even if you don’t have an Apple Watch!
You can use the form below to submit feedback, request features, or report bugs. This app is still in early stages, so if you’ve got a feature you want added to the app I’m all ears! Thanks for checking it out.

This is a GREAT idea. I know a lot of people i work with have an app on their desktop for this, but then end up deleting it, because it’s TERRIBLE and comes up while they are doing webinars. I will have to let them know about this. I would for sure use if I hadn’t just switched to the dark side (android). Congrats on getting your app out there.

Thanks Ryan! The next feature I plan on releasing for the app is better control over exactly when those notifications fire. I definitely plan on including a “don’t bug me for the rest of the day” button for when you’re in a meeting or something 😉
