Each hour can be set up differenty.
The fellow app CLOCK talks US, UK, AUE English, Czech, Hungarian. It will also tell you ALMOST times (‘It is almost five o’clock in the afternoon' ).
Tells me: ‘Son las cinco de la tarde' or ‘It is now five o’clock in the afternoon'. No touch or acknowledgement is necessary. The messages will come from the background.
2 distinct features:
1. Background Clock. Can be run all the time in the background. Almost no measurable drain of battery power.
According to some of our users this is the best talking clock available for iOS.
Talks to you from the background while you are using other apps (while listening to music, browsing the web, watching videos,...). Does not need or use any network connections.
Some examples for a 5 o'clock alert (well, you have to imagine the different accents):
Any of these can be selected fro each hour or ALMOST hour.

Almost hours gone.
Ever since I got my new iPhone 7 Plus, the almost hours are gone. What happened?
Developer Response ,
Almost is a separate app. Download it. It is free.
Almost functionality is not and was not included in the Clock 2 app.
All should be ok under iPhone 7 Plus on your phone.
If you still have problems, please contact us from the app.
The clock2 is the best time talking in the app store. It works very good and I like it. It is really magnificent. 5 star
Weak programming skills
Poor design. Unneeded voice message asking to adjust the volume each time I switch to it. After the upgrade to iOS 9 the watch stopped working with the hands fixed on 12 o'clock.
Developer Response ,
Voice message on startup: The default "language" is the one you hear on startup. Just select a beep or an even less intrusive "language" before you leave the app.
Hands fixed on 12: Compatibility problem with a new iOS version. Just upgrade the app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
