Battery draining and resets randomly The app does not stay in memory. I have 1GB memory. The app restarts itself in the background (stays in notification) especially when new apps are installing or the phone is using processor for something. It might be the scheduler I'm using.. maybe if this app used root functions it would be fine... Giving it 3 stars for now because of all the effort.

Great app..before 4.4.2 EDIT: The option for "Protect USB storage" seems to now be missing from Dev options, so it looks like Google enabled it, then removed the option. Thanks to the dev for a pointer, +1 star for the reply and fix. OP: Love this application, but since updating from 4.3 to 4.4.2, custom sounds can no longer be selected, it gives an error. Had to uninstall it since the default sounds are too long or inappropriate. Hoping for a fix. Thanks.

HTC desire V. After installed, apps worked perfectly on time. But after about 1 hour later, the signal turn on at incorrect time. Example, if set at 15 minutes from 00, it would not sound on time, either later or earlier than every 15 minutes. Why?
