Just would not use it on a phone related device because in order to control the time announcement volume, the general setting for sound has to be set to change your ringer volume along with the announcement volume. I use it on an iPad with the volume at only 2 dots. That said, I do love it! I change it to one minute intervals before I shower and it keeps me on track so well that my shower took half as long, which saves water!

Read time in the background

I need an app to read time for me when I’m taking a shower, doing chores, etc. while listening to music on my phone. This app is a perfect solution because it can read time in the background, which means you can listen to podcast or any audio AND have the app to read time at the same time. I was searching an app to read time in the background and this is by far the only one I found. You can have the app to read time in 1, 2, 3 to 60 minutes interval, which is a convenient feature. The interface is simple, visually pleasant and easy to use and you can choose three languages: English, Italian and Japanese. I like the Japanese version; it reminds me of the days when I lived in Japan! Overall I recommend it!

Q tothe T ,

Helps me stay on track in the morning BUT

It doesn’t allow me to set the days it will go off. I don’t want it waking me up on my days off every 15 minutes.. but I do need something during the work days to help keep me on track. Without shutting off my news of which I listen to from my phone.. there’s no way I’m going to remember every Thursday night to shut this off. So I am going to get frustrated with it
