It announces time in whatever interval you choose just like on Mac. If you silence your phone, the voice doesn’t sound but it still buzzes. Perfect time interval options. Keeps going in the background despite what app you have open even music/YouTube. And it doesn’t drain battery!

Exactly as expected


THIS APP WAS MEANT FOR ME! I use it every morning so I'm never running late.
If you are looking for a free app that says the time in a voice every x minutes -> get this app!

Handy & Reliable


Works as advertised. I recommend it without reservation.

Repeating timers like this are so handy for
• projects involving particular painting or gluing,
• situations requiring frequent but not constant monitoring, such as baking or — as I'm presently doing — keeping my 8 y.o. on task cleaning up her bedroom.
• Any situation where you need to maintain a high level of "time consciousness," e.g. leaving for the airport, awaiting VIP arrival, etc.

Works nicely. The six voices are pleasant. The variety brings some excitement into an otherwise dull existence.
Minor downcheck: it only allows intervals of {1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 60} minutes.

On the plus side, you can configure the app to run "the Voice" automatically every day at specific start/end times. (Or not.)

Only issue I've seen since the iOS 9 update: when you open the app & start the voice, [sometimes? Often? (It's been so long I've forgotten…)] the voice doesn't sound. I developed the habit of first using the app's "sound check" button before starting the voice, and I have had no issues.

Also, a warning: if you close the app while it's announcing intervals, it will continue announcing intervals. I see this as a plus. The thing to be aware of is that if you then open the app & change a setting, eg if you bump the interval setting, that config change is immediately effective — whether you meant to make that change or not. Just be aware.
