Reliable It does what it is supposed to do. If you are having problems, double check your settings, it might be your own fault. The reliability is worth the price. Very happy.

It actually works, but... Tried every similar app, they didn't work. Was ready to give up, then found this one & voila, it actually works! All others failed during music playback, or worked sometimes, or crashed, or caused problematic behaviour with other apps, or did not have adequate controls (quiet time, notification controls, pitch/speed, etc). This one does it all, only thing missing is it should use installed voice engine, not use it's own, and be nice to edit lead-in part of announcement. Not sure it's being developed anymore

Helps me be aware This app helps keep me oriented and aware. I tend to wander off. And when I half awake in the night or during a nap, I know the time.

Works great Problem: Frequently speaks English pronunciation of French words when I'm running French Ivona speech engine. Weird. This happens in 5 min mode, especially. Feature Request: I wish the silent time feature included silent days in addition to the time hours. All around beautiful software, clean UI.

Great for skiing! Would be 5 stars if it said PM instead of AM between 12:00 PM & 12:59 PM. Otherwise works great.
