Audio Clock


Turn your phone into a portable speaking or chiming clock.
Audio clock turns your android device into your own speaking or chiming clock. Choose when the time is announced and have it spoken aloud to you - or listen to a real clock chime the quarter hours instead.

If your phone or tablet doesn't have the free speech pack, Audio Clock will prompt you to download it.

Audio clock is perfect if you don't wear a watch, can't see or easily check your watch, or just need regular time announcements to help you keep track of the time.

Audio clock can be configured to:
- start when you turn your phone on
- show a status icon in the notification bar
- speak the time or use a real clock chime
- only announce when you are using bluetooth or wired headphones
- automatically turn itself off between specified times (e.g. overnight)
- use either the alarm, media or notification volume for all announcements.

Audio Clock operates in one of two main modes: as a chiming clock, with chimes on each quarter hour, or as a speaking clock, with a customisable announcement interval.

In chiming clock mode you can choose from a selection of real clock sounds: a grandfather clock with either Winchester or Whittington chimes, London's famous Big Ben, the clock from St Pauls School (also in London) or a cuckoo clock as your clock sound.

Chimes are rung every quarter of an hour, with the option to turn each individual chime on or off. You can also choose which audio channel - media, alarm or notification - is used to play chimes over, and the volume at which they are played.

In speaking clock mode you can choose from four announcement intervals - five, ten, fifteen or twenty minutes apart - and as with the chiming clock you have the option to turn individual announcements on or off.

Spoken announcements can just announce the time - "the time is quarter past seven" - or announce it in the style of the Speaking Clock - "At the third stroke the time will be..." with an optional sponsor of your choice. The time itself can be announced using the 12 hour clock ("the time is two thirty pm"), 24 hour clock ("the time is fourteen thirty") or a traditional style ("the time is half past two").

There is an option to shorten voice announcements, so instead of "the time is quarter past seven" you will get "quarter past seven". You can also change the pitch and speed of voice announcements as well as the audio channel and volume used.

Chiming clock and speaking clock settings are stored separately, allowing you to switch between the two modes without having to re-enter your chiming options.

Audio Clock can also use vibration to indicate the time: zero to three long vibrations to indicate the quarter hour (on the hour, quarter past, half past, quarter to) followed by a number of short vibrations to indicate the hour. Vibration will be used if you enable it and your device is in vibrate or normal (volume above zero) mode.

Your device will automatically pause (or temporarily reduce the volume of) any currently playing media when an announcement starts, and then resume it (or restore the volume level) once an announcement is complete.

More choices of clock, and other ways of customising the spoken announcements will be introduced over time.

Some shortcomings on my HTC ONE XL Cannot get any sound from Bluetooth earpiece. Have to have voice settings at lowest pitch & slowest speed to understand. Volume controls do not seem to make much difference. Would like it to work as functions are a good variety. Purchased primarily for Bluetooth capability and hope a solution can be found for my phone. Changed to 5 stars as original problem was with headset not being suitable.

My pick for talking clock My only complaint is that it can't say, for example, "eleven o'clock" and "eleven thirty", both of which have easily understandable constinant sounds. Instead it's either "eleven AM" (which is hard to hear) and "eleven thirty", or "eleven o'clock" and "half past eleven". Everything else is perfect.

never works when music playing Spotty performance in general, never works when music is playing. Other apps work fine. Had already paid for Pro version, guess I lost that $. Stock Verizon S4

Works half the time When it works it is great. But it only works half the time. I use it with a Bluetooth headset while skiing I set it up the same way every time but its a complete crapshoot. Hitting the play button always works - from there is is completely unpredictable. Disappointing.
