About this app

Simple time reminder, plays sounds regularly (hourly chime), but can do much more!.

It can be used as a cuckoo clock or mindfulness bell - every time it rings it gives you chance to think what time it is or what you are currently doing.

By default it plays short sound every hour regardless of day or time of day. It can not only beep hourly but also on shorter periods like 30 or 15 minutes. The time signal can be configured for example to limit chime time to specific hours or days, see below for full list of options.

You can use it also as reminder (e.g. to drink more water or take break from computer screen) by customizing text in the notification.

Works beautifully. I needed to keep track of time, but my phone's alarm feature is disruptive as I must manually shut it off when it sounds. This app just makes a gentle sound and that's great! I love all the free features. It took me a while to figure out how to turn off "optimize battery usage" for this app, but it chimes every time now! Yes, the half-hours are indinguishable from hours, but a quick look at my phone dispells confusion. Love this app.

Works as advertised. I appreciate the flexible silent time. I use the app to remind me to get up and move every hour during my work days. I don't want it chiming at other times and it doesn't. I have some mild hearing loss and I can't hear the blip or casio sounds over the background noise at work. The ship bell is ideal. I'm happy the app has multiple choices for sound.

A very practical app. As a student, it helps me stay focused on tasks such as studying. My only criticism is that it doesn't have any options for chimes every 2 minutes or 3 minutes; just for once every 1 minute and once every 5 minutes, which is a pretty big gap, in my opinion. I think I would appreciate the ability to manually alter the time between chimes as opposed to having to pick one of the preset times.

What's new

- Aggressive delay prevention is now disabled by default

If you still experience issues (not delivered notifications or increased battery usage), please try disabling “Prevent delays” option in Reliability settings or contact us using “Report problem” from the app.
- Added option to disable sound in Silent mode to Experimental settings
