Ratings and Reviews
Great App. Very useful. You will not be disappointed.
I’ve had an app like this for several years. After I recently upgraded to a new iPhone 12 Pro my old app was unavailable. I decided to give this one a try. To my surprise, this one works much better than my old one.
After I downloaded the app I noticed that I was not getting voice announcements. All I would get is a ding sound at the times I selected for it to function.
I reached out to the developers and got a quick response to my problem. I must say , I did not expect to hear from anyone to resolve my issue. Certainly not as fast as they responded.
Anyway, I received an email from Mark, one of the developers who gave me a list of options to try to correct the issue. Nothing from the list worked.
To make a long story short, Mark and I emailed each other back and forth until the issue was resolved. All in one day. Amazing.
Once the issue was resolved, the app performs as described with no issue. I have enjoyed this app 100%.
I do not wear a watch so this app is very useful for me during the day. Set up is very easy. It has options that you can pick and choose. Schedule your announcements, use voice or tone announce, choose the person who announces the time and has great technical support.
Best app of 2021. Shout out to Mark who cared enough to make an old man happy. I wish there were more people in the world like you.
Great app & prompt response for developers if you need help
App works great, great program, keeps me alert and oriented to time, great customer service provided by developers through prompt response. Developer help me tune the volume of the app to my preference. I use app regularly and the app has a tab to easily turn the app on/off. It’s very helpful. The voices are ok and do the job. This app does what it was meant to do, which is announcing time and it does it well. I can see this helping people who have ADHD and or “live in the moment” by helping them remember the time. The best investment I’ve made towards an app! The only thing I’d like added, is the option to have both the 30 minute and ding option for 15/45 mins selected. Right now, it says notification limitation by apple or something. But, I completely understand that it’s a restriction made by Apple and not you guys. Thank you once again!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the kind words. You can have both half hour announcements and quarter hour dings if you keep the schedule to 16 hours or less (4 notifications per hour x 16 hours = 64 notifications which is the max allowed by iOS). Mark
I have ADHD and use this app for time awareness. The only thing I could ask for would be an integrated alarm (check out their AWESOME Talking Alarm app) and the ability to set custom intervals, for instance, for those trips into the store for “five minutes” and it takes 15! I would love to be able to put it in “squirrel mode” haha (please steal that guys) and in my ear pod hear the time every 5 minutes to be aware of the difference between what amount of time I thought my stop would take (with family waiting in the car mind you!) versus what amount of time it is actually taking—and of course being able to reduce this time warp squirrel effect! Overall I love this app. Thanks guys.
