Good but a few gripes ...

Basic functionality is excellent, and the bell sound is charming, but ...

(1) The app needs a volume control, and

(2) The displays of hour angle of sun and moon only update at the moment the app becomes active. How about more often, say once a minute?

Developer Response ,

Thank you for appreciating the bell sounds. Thank you for the volume adjustment suggestion. The sun and moon position do update every minute. Occasionally I've seen them freeze up and have had to restart the app. It's so seldom that I haven't been able to reproduce it. I've opened an issue to track it and keep me reminded about it. See the support link for information about bug reporting.

Perfect sound & operation!!!

Now that app is working with Apple update it is doing so perfectly. Great replacement for “Marine Bells” that bailed on their app. Bell sound: Perfect. Bell count: Perfect. Clock information: Perfect. You will have no control over this app as it is entirely automatic. It does mute during “Sleep “ and knows your location. This is the only GENUINE AND RELIABLE ship’s clock offered. The others are junk!!!

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for your appreciative review. If you think of settings that you would like to have control over, please write to me using the contact information found by following the support link. I'd like to be able to toggle-off the location display. That's on the list.

Pretty good

It bad. Very accurate except that ships don’t ring bells at night. Needs a way to set silence times. As it is I have to silence the whole phone.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the suggestion to provide settings that silence the bells during certain periods. The app does not have this because it duplicates function on your device that provides do not disturb periods. If I haven't understood your suggestion, please write to me using information at the support link.
