User reviews of Hourly chime
Now works on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus (ICS) phone. Works well. Unlike Bellman doesn't decrease phone's volume to play chime. Haven't noticed any wakelock (battery) issues. Pretty easy to setup and settings can be backed up. I've made a hourly mp3 with a 15 second noise free start to avoid calendar reminders :-) Sadly, no built in chimes.

I was looking for this app for a long time! I had something similar on my old nokia, an now I have it again. It's great thing to track time. PLUS: functionality. MINUS: the UI might be somehow better.

Helpful but.. It really helps me in various of things, but it could be better if you could decrease it's memory usage. Also setting multiple reminders to ring at the same time will only trigger one of them. So I suggest making a queue for reminders that ring at the same time, which means one rings after another.

Killed All My Fotos...!!! Immediately after installation was complete on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3, I rebooted my fone. Once it rebooted, I took 5 pics. When I went to show the pics to my family I noticed that all 750+ fotos were wiped out...!!! Oh, but it kept the 5 new pics. This is TOTALLY unacceptable...!!!

You can't specify the exact time you want the chimes in the free version, you can only set it in increments of 15 minutes. 20:00, 20:15 etc. Makes it useless for what I needed it to do

Does what it says Handy, versatile app that does what it says. However, i can't buy the pro version since it's not available in my country (Netherlands)?
