Finally, authentic ship bells on your phone and tablet! Choose start and stop times, and Standard or British style bells. You'll hear the bells on every hour and half hour even when the app isn't running. Your ringer volume must be turned on for the bells to play.
This is a clear, easy-to-use and helpful app with a number of functionality-enhancing features. For example, one can shut it off at night and have it autostart in the morning. Clocks let time slip along silently like sand in an hourglass. Even if you have no marine or naval application, this gently reminds you of time's relentless progress and to get off the couch and go do something.
Wholeheartedly endorse this app. They did a great job of providing practical customization without over complicating it to the point of being oppressive.
Nice, simple and accurate
A nice little app for Age of Sail geeks that tolls ships' bells.
It actually has the dog watches built in, so there are only 4 bells at 6pm and 8pm. Worth the buck's price of admission. I will be playing this into my boat's sound system during future cruises.
One minor criticism - One setting allows selecting between "British" and "Standard", with no definition of what that difference means.
Others are better
I have yet to find a ship's bell app that I can use. This one is no different. I need an app that doesn't vibrate when it sounds, because it always makes me think I'm getting a text or a call. This app not only doesn't offer that option, but the sound quality is poor compared to similar apps. All in all not worth the cost. Go for one of the other ones if you're in the market. Their sound is at least better.
