Shoddy code Not only rings the wrong number of bells from time to time, this app manages to be up to 10 minutes late in ringing them. Coupled with the infuriating popup, this really is an "app" I'd like a refund for.

Can't tell time. Alarms consistently occur at the wrong times.

Probably related to the earlier pop-up problem Not seeing any unnecessary pop-ups but... am seeing that the app still fires silently during the hours when it's not supposed to. For example, I'm reading an ebook with auto scrolling during the pre-set quiet no-bell times. On the hour and halfhour, my ebook's auto scroll will be interrupted and thrown off, and I lose my place. This won't happen if I switch Ships Bell completely off.

One bug, one question/potential big Great app, but I've found a new bug and have some questions. In the post Nore Royal Navy option: 1) The pop up for the 1st Bell in the First Watch (at 20:30) incorrectly displays "One Bell in the Last Dog Watch." and 2) Also at 20:00, it rings 8 times. I'm asking: back in the day, was the last bells of the Last Dog Watch four belts or eight? You've got eight, which seem odd since the previous bell was 3 rings. Please reply. Jim

Gone from okay to worse REMOVE THE POP UP! It's ALWAYS on and it's ALWAYS annoying. If I'm surfing, watching netflix or listening to music, it interrupts what I'm doing and I REALLY don't like it. Also, after having it for about 4 days, it's started chiming the wrong bells & wrong time, and now it starts to chime and cuts off in the middle of the first bell. I think I'll start looking for another app. At least I only lost a buck
