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.

Not working on my samsung 5 I see the notification of the alarms are going off but there is no sound! I have it set to chime, 100 percent volume, in silent mode, vibrate mode etc. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Does not seem intuitive. Other than this issue which i think is pretty big, it looks cool and apparently is working for others. If I can get it to work I will change my review.

Requires id & call permission? Just wish to understand why a clock app needs such info..??

Pathetic App The App Ui is too confusing. Also the app needs to be kept in background, otherwise the alarm doesn't ring. Works pathetic on Moto E.
