- iOS 8.3 version compatible!
- runs under iOS 7.1 and up.
- 10 additional timers (with 18 separate messages each)
Some examples of these sound messages:
exercise starts in 3 minutes
dinner starts in 15 minutes
movie starts in an hour
have a drink at this moment (for people who watch their water intake)
take morning, midday, evening, night pills in a minute (e.g. to support taking pills 4 times per day, e.g. in 6 hour intervals)
be at work in 30 minutes
start of day in 5 minutes
- additional error checks and messages were added to help the user to enable local notifications
- new icon showing TIMERS, to differentiate from the single timer TIMER
- to save memory some startup messages had been deleted (e.g. timer is starting now), a short beep will sound instead
- some minor changes, nothing serious, basically the app has already been quite solid.

Ratings and Reviews
Love This App!
I use both Hugo’s Talking Clock and Talking Reminders apps. When I moved from BlackBerry to iPhone a few years ago, the one thing I really missed were some of the time management advantages of the BlackBerry. Timers and alerts on BlackBerry seemed more customizable. Not as much on iPhone. I went looking for apps that would help and I found these two: Talking Clock and Talking Reminders. They are terrific and just what I wanted.
There is some set up work in getting these apps to be customized to your individual preferences. After you get that done, the apps work flawlessly and I’ve been using them for several years.
People near you will either love them or hate them. I regularly get comments like … “That is so amazing that your phone tells you it’s lunch time.” Sometimes you’ll find a few grouches who will say … “Does your phone do that all the time?” I have my settings customized to tell me the time at the top of the hour (with Talking Clock) and then about 1/2 dozen reminders during the day … go to work, lunch, etc).
If you are looking for a time management tool for your iPhone, I highly recommend the Hugo apps. As I noted, I’ve been using them for several years and I would miss them a lot if I didn’t have them on my iPhone.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
