Hourly Chime Ultimate

Hourly Chime Ultimate


Do you miss that beep-beep your old electronic watch made every hour?
Looking for an old-styled cuckoo clock sound to tell you the time every hour?
Cuckoo clock too small? How about Big Ben, playing a different chime every quarter, plus ringing its bell on every round hour? Just as you can hear it in London!
And now, you can also listen to the time spoken by the speech synthesizer (check out the great IVONA voices with this function!)

Try these and more sounds (coming soon), every hour or every quarter! Now you can also choose the range of quiet hours so that the chime won't wake you up.

Hourly Chime Ultimate, is the only such app (as of writing this), that lets you choose if you want the chime to be played as a ringer (silent the ringer to silent the chime), or multimedia sound (so you can control its volume independently).

Hourly Chime Ultimate depends on system scheduling to deliver chimes accurately on time, with zero CPU/memory usage in the meantime!

When using this app, set app killers not to kill it, otherwise the chime will not be heard!

can be a very good app with some improvement Chime without spoken time or spoken time without chime. Plus points for choice of chime & quiet times. A bit disappointed at the speak the time, most of time it doesn't work except when testing the chime. Would be a plus if chime can couple with spoken time; no updates since Jun 2012
