Ratings and Reviews
I would have given 5 star rating but for one draw back with this almost perfect app. When you’ve used it and done and go to CLOSE the app it doesn’t really close. It won’t shut up 🤐 or down if you will. It continues to give the time. You can’t silence it.
Developer Response ,
There is a speaker button in the top left corner - it will silence the app.
Great tool for time management.
I have only used it for a short period and I'm fascinated. I would definitely love to see this app expand into the Watch, it would definitely be a game changer to not always have our phones to enjoy it's features.
This is definitely a great app and I would recommend it to counselors and other professionals who would benefit from better time management.
Love This App
The last update caused some strange behavior with this app. After updating in January the app seemed to announce the time for days without having to reopen the app to reactivate the talking clock. Now when I open the app to reactivate the TalkingClock the announcement feature seems to be short lived. They periodically last a couple of hours then it stops announcing. Occasionally I get a pop up window telling me the app works best when phone is not in silent mode. I very seldom use my phone in silent mode.
