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.

Does not work as stated. Strangely, app does not beep every hour instead, it beeps 4minutes pass every hour like 8.04am, 9.04am etc. Tried everything.. Whitelist, reboot etc but still no sugar.. Am using a Redmi 1s on JB 4.3.
