This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Voice Alarm will tell you, how much time you have left until an appointment or event.
Open this app and set up an alarm for the time of your appointment. Press start and from then on the device will speak how much time you have left. The notification
system is intelligent and can give you notifications more and more frequently as the deadline approaches. Alternatively, you can ask for notifications on fixed time intervals. E.g. every minute like a standard talking clock.
- Intelligent announcement system will tell you more and more often how much time you have left
- Speaking clock, alarms, timers, and stopwatch
- Choose between male and female voices
- Will not interrupt iPod music playback
- Save frequently used alarms and timers
- Select from a large set of appointment types to have the speech fit your situation accurately.

A hidden 💎GEM💎 for time management
I've had this app forever and it is heartening to see that the company is still hosting it for download on ITunes.
It is worth every penny for its myriad of options to report deadlines including being able to read events from iOS calendar.
I have no problem keeping it on in the background and it will phase in while music is on to inform and he phone goes right back to music seamlessly.
The only major quips keeping this app from being ranked 5 is that like the other reviewer I have mentioned to the developer several times setting a deadline by clock time recognizes the 12 hour marker as 24 ie am always.
This is easily worked around as you can use timer for the 12pm-12:59 pm range.
Additionally and this is big, the app has not been at all adjusted for new formats although it does load. I have the newer 6+ and display is same as when I had my 3G.
Finally while the dev has provided several options to mark (gym/dinner/event/appointment) I wish they would just re-haul the app to allow a typed in word.
Nevertheless, the intuitive use and super intelligent warning system has saved me from being late many times and so I would give it 4.75 stars if I could !
Grab it before it goes offline 😉
Great upgrade! Thanks!!!
Use it everyday for stretching and working out. I don't have to count it announces to me every 30 seconds!!
Awesome! Multitasking is great iphone 4
I love this app I use it when i am working out...stretching and drills because It's better than watching the clock as I can stay focused with greater intensity...All the other previous reviewers are just people who can't read the description and then download the app and want alarm notifications when the app is NOT running...learn to read first kinda something taught in elementary..And don't blame your lack of reading skills on the developers because they can't go around the restrictions of apple's OS for the iphone..BUY IT if the description makes sense to you I USE IT EVERYDAY AND LOVE IT!
Setting alarms between 12 noon and 12:59pm
I actually find most of the features of this application to be be great. I was disappointed that there hadn't been any updates in nearly a year and thought about this when I considered my purchase. I recently discovered that I cannot set an alarm for 12 noon or anytime from noon to 12:59pm. Doing so will display an "am" time setting. Many other features are nice/helpful. It has a nice interface. It has way too many "event types" to choose from. Would really like to see a fix to the issue I'm having. Also, in lieu of all of the many "event types" to choose from, it would be nice to be able to customize or even change the order of the type alarms/alerts that one uses the most.
