Seems to do the trick

I downloaded this app to use in a classroom, and it seems like it’s going to work pretty well. I do have some user comments and feature requests though.

1.) It would be great to be able to provide your own sound file for the bell rings
2.) It would be fabulous if you could select more than one bell sound. (For example, Bell 1 for the start of class and Bell 2 to signal clean-up time)
3.) It would be phenomenal and it would improve the UI a lot if during schedule mode you had a radio button to select which days each scheduled bell would ring. For example:

Bell [1] Time [9:00am] Days Su [ ] M [X] Tu [ ] W [X] Th [X] F [X] Sa [ ]

Anyway, four stars for usable and free. I’d pay for an app that had the expanded features that I described above.

Cheers to you

I like it

I don’t know why’s everyboy complaining (1-star reviewers), because I think the app is alright. Fine, it’s no Apple Design Award winner, but it does that job and it’s free.

I’m a freelancer and I normally use FocusList for Pomodoros, but tomorrow I’m going to try to follow *school* schedule! So I wanted an app to give me ringing at set times.


Was not able to open the application. Then when I tried to delete it, it said it could not delete the app as it was already open with nothing showing. Ended up deleting from Launchpad but somehow the app is still installed on my computer and chimes every hour. I can’t find out how to delete it from my computer! WTH!!
