Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
It's a repeating timer. It automatically notifies you of a set period of time. Keep time for your periodic activity for the whole day!
Ringer is used to taking time breaks from a computer, your work or study, to remind you to exercise every set period of time or to keep the important thing on track daily.
“This is a good app to remind when to take medicine” —OmiReng
“Does exactly what it says on the tin” —Sereph
When you set the notification period and tap Start, the app starts a repeating countdown. If you lock the screen, Ringer app informs you with the sound and a notification on the lock screen when the countdown is complete. If you don’t lock the screen, then the app shows you the countdown and informs you with the sound and an alert dialog respectively.
To mute the notification sound on the lock screen, swipe left over it, then tap Accept. Or press any of volume buttons on the side of the device.
▸ Notification period can be set from 1 minute to 23 hours.
▸ Shows the number of notifications you’ll receive until Auto Stop time. And keeps track of notifications you have already received.
▸ Title for notifications can be set by tapping at the top of the screen.
▸ Has 15 different alarm sounds, including — Zen bell, Birds, Whistling.
▸ Configure the Auto Stop time and the notification sound, even after the repeating countdown has begun.
▸ Set a song from Media Library or a voice memo from the appropriate app as the alarm sound. Also, there is a No Sound option where only a short vibration is used.
▸ Alarm sound duration may be switched to be as short as four seconds instead of the standard 28 seconds.
▸ Landscape orientation is supported. You can put the device on its side then and watch countdown comfortably.
▸ The last notification sound the app plays before it auto-stops is mixed with the “Ta–da” sound to let you know that it's the final notification.
▸ App fully supports background mode and multitasking. You can lock the screen or work with other apps while the countdown is on.
▸ This app is Ad Free and always be!
Two functions of the Ringer app: configuration of the Auto Stop time and short sound duration selection requires a paid upgrade to be performed before use. These are available with In-App purchases.

What's New in Version 1.2
This is an amazing update. You may notice that the app has been renamed to Ringer. It reflects the app’s function better. Despite of the app’s name change, it rings as good as before and even better. Welcome the Ringer app with the following changes:
▸ Auto Stop time setting is added. The app stops repeating countdown at the set time.
▸ When Auto Stop is on, the last notification sound the app plays is mixed with the “Ta–da” sound to let you know its the final notification.
▸ Information about notifications is added. It shows countdown alongside additional information that includes: The number of past and future notifications, time of the last notification and time of the next notification.
▸ Alert sound mutes on incoming call when the app is opened.
▸ Short sound duration option is added. Now you can select between the standard 28-seconds and short 4-second notification sounds.
▸ Zen bell sound is added instead of the Metal gong. The Zen bell is great for relaxing. Check it out!
▸ Now you can set audio records from other apps as the notification sound. For example, you can record an audio message in Voice Memos and select Share > Open in Ringer.
There are also lots of smaller UI improvements and bug fixes.
If you like Ringer, please take the time to give it a review in App Store: it really helps.
For someone who forgets things or procrastinates a lot, this app is bound to set your discipline in place. You get timely notifications and what I like is, you can set custom voices as the sounds as well. Very well done devs.
Fabulous app with great concept. I like it. I use this app everyday. Recommend to all other users.
