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.

Works great Settings are a bit confusing but once you figure it out it works perfectly. It does not affect battery life at all.

Something's wrong This won't take the day of week setting no matter how many times I save it. Lame. Uninstalling.
