Description

Little Ben is a mechanical clock that chimes every quarter hour with the Westminster chime and also strikes on the hour for each hour, even when the app is not running. If you look closely you can even see the minute hand move as the pendulum and escapement make the clock tick.

Slide your finger or tap a button to turn On / Off and set the volume level of the quarterly chimes, hourly strikes, and the ticking.

You can set Little Ben to only strike on the hour without the quarterly chimes.

Tap the silence button to silence all quarterly chimes and hourly strikes for up to 12 hours.

With Slide Over in iOS 9 open a second app as Little Ben runs on your iPad. As Little Ben chimes quarterly and strikes hourly you can browse the web using Safari, check your Calendar, or discover what's new on your Twitter Timeline and respond back to your followers.

If you are playing songs with Apple's Music app or iTunes Radio your music will continue to play in the background as Little Ben runs.

We worked on Accessibility to make all of the features of Little Ben accessible to everyone. Try VoiceOver with gesture based control and navigation, just triple-click the Home button to access it. You will hear a description of everything happening on the screen.

Little Ben runs on your iPhone, iPod touch, and also your iPad Air, iPad, and iPad mini.

Not worth it on IPod

App stops working as soon as you try to do ANYTHING else on the iPod - ticking and chiming only works if you just stare at the clock. Zoom out to check email? Clock stops. Go into settings? Clock stops. Go to leave a review at the App Store? Clock stops.

I gave it two stars as it’s nice to listen to when you go to bed - but that’s the only time I can actually USE/ENJOY Little Ben.

I wanted to hear a nice Grandfather Clock sound while online - but I guess I have to save up hundreds of dollars and buy an actual Grandfather Clock as we are YEARS away from the technical wizardry needed to play a tick-tock sound on our iPods

Elegant and Intuitive

My chiming mantel clock is being serviced, and the silence was driving me batty! This app was easy to set up and subs nicely. I just run the app and put it on the charger, it makes the ticking sound as well and doesn't go to sleep when app is in the foreground. I have it chiming every 15 minutes just like my real one.

Not much to it

This is not much more than a novelty. Pointless really, if you carry your device with you and don't care to annoy everyone around you. Besides that, the quarterly chimes function doesn't work.
