You choose from one of five bell sounds, most a single note. Also choose at what hour to start and at what hour to end the chimes during the day, so your chime won't go off while you sleep.
Also includes volume and on/off switch.
Just beeps, not a musical fanfare, so that you're not embarrassed in public! (For fancy chimes, I'd recommend Bellman)
Tones at the top of the hour help you brush up on your binary too :). Some notes on how to decode the binary tones are below.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Need to open app and press "Start Chimes" on first install.
About the "prevent phone from sleeping" permission: This is just to keep the phone awake for a couple of seconds every 15 minutes, long enough to play tones. It shouldnt impact your battery life, and shouldnt make your screen turn on.
~~~ Binary tone notes ~~~
Here's how you can decode the time from the tones.
First, there is a low tone to let you know the sequence is coming.
Then there will be 4 tones that represent the hour number in binary (or 5 if you have a 24hr clock enabled)
A high pitch tone is a "1" and a medium pitch tone is a "0", and it counts from high bits to low bits.
If you're not a programmer, that will sound overly complex, but it's not so bad when you get used to it.
Here are some examples:
1 oclock in 12hr clock mode:
medium medium medium high = 0 0 0 1 = 1
1am (01:00) in 24hr clock mode:
medium medium medium medium high = 0 0 0 0 1 = 1
2 oclock in 12 hr clock mode: medium medium high medium = 0 0 1 0 = 2
11 oclock in 12 hr clock mode: high medium high high = 1 0 1 1 = 11 (=8*1 + 4*0 + 2*1 + 1*1)
20:00 in 24 hr clock mode: high medium high medium medium = 1 0 1 0 0 = 20 (=16*1 + 8*0 + 4*1 + 2*0 + 1*0)
and so on.

Why all the permissions?
- Internet is used for statistics -- there's an option to share stats if you want to.
- Read logs is for sending bug reports -- we have our own bug reporting integrated in the app, it collects the app's logs and generates an email that you can review before sending. We don't collect other apps logs.
- Sdcard is used for sharing stats if you want to, e.g. save to sdcard and upload image to any social network you like (the app will auto-detect if you have some app like Google+ or FB installed and suggest that.)
- Read phone state is used to deactivate the chime sound during calls. The chime is an option of course, disabled by default.
- Retrieve running apps is used to only activate the widget when the home screen is visible. If another app is the main, the widget stops updating. Saves CPU/battery.
