Hourly helps you keep track of time. It's just like having a wristwatch that beeps on the hour, except it's much more personal!
You can choose:
* The sound to play (from a simple wristwatch beep, to the legendary Greenwich Pips, to a spoken voice, or the chime of an old clock)
* A message to display on the screen
* Which hours, half hours, or any other times to notify you about
We think it's the best hourly chime app on the App Store, and we're always listening for your feedback if you think we can do better! No ads, no tracking, no In-App Purchases. Ever.
Fixed a bug that was causing incorrect (or no) notifications to be scheduled when non-default days were selected.
Ratings and Reviews
Just what I was looking for.
I didn't want a lot of bells and whistles (so to speak), just and hourly reminding. And I was really happy to find this simple app. Hope dvlprs aren't discouraged by previous one bad review. The wristwatch beep is my choice, the others are a little to load, long or call attention to themselves IMHO. Would be five stars if there were choices with volume. Ironically, the wrist watch alarm is precisely what I was looking for and the only one that's TOO quiet and subtle. Perhaps a Wrist Watch Beep 2.0? Another BIG PLUS, this is the first app I've seen that doesn't interrupt begging for reviews. It even states it will not interrupt asking for ratings. Wow! That alone almost makes it 5 star worthy!
Developer Response ,
Hey! Thanks for your review. I'll look into the volume of the wristwatch beep - there's no way for us to allow customisation of the volume, but perhaps I can add a louder variant of the beep :)
Voice Changed ~ Annoying
I like to hear the time spoken. The app recently changed from a woman’s voice to a mans voice. I find the mans voice annoying and their isn’t a way to change it. Prefer the woman’s voice or option to change it. Another recent change, good and bad, is how you can add specific times to be announced. Starts at 6:00 through midnight. Pain if you work midnight shift and have to add in the missing hours. I like it but annoyed by changes.
I tried this app because it supports intervals other than the standard 15, 30, and 60 minutes — personally, I prefer 90 minutes, so thank you for making that possible.
However, for some reason, the notifications basically stop working after each time I silence my phone. At least, this is how it seems. Un-silencing the phone never seems to un-silence this app. This is an awful bug.
Also, it seems buggy when I want to keep the sound notifications on but turn the visual notifications off. I don’t want to have to clear notifications, I just want my phone to beep every 90 minutes, end of story.
