It's such an amazing idea And it works perfectly fine once you`ve learned the vibrations patterns (wich is not hard) I'll give it five

Useful idea, will give 5 if fixed I would give this a five star rating, but for the execution. The code is hard to feel while you're walking. I would like to see an option that turns sound on only if you have headphones in so that it doesn't talk accidentally aloud. Also, there is a bug that turns my phone on and activates the clock if I just shake the phone without touching the wake up button. One more glitch; if it speaks while I'm playing music, the volume of the music is temporarily raised to the volume of clock. Makes hearing hard.

too sensitive! Too sensitive no matter how you adjust it! If you had the phone in your jeans pocket you'll keep hearing the time as you walk! Also no option to choose 24 hour format nor speak am/pm. Bellman is a more polished app. It would have been nice too if it speaks the time when launched, so you can assign it to a button and instead of shake just press the button to hear the time…
