These apps run under iOS11 !!


Gotchas:

Clock, Clock2 (v:8.88)
Almost, KcolC (v:8.801)
- If app does not work after the upgrade, delete the previous version and download it again
- With VoiceOver double tap on the base screen to open the menus
- Enable notifications for the app either when the app asks for it, or later going into Settings!
(except for KcolC, that one does not have notifications)

These will be corrected in the next versions.

Talking Timers (v.:2.45)
- iPhone 6P Lansdcape mode display not handled properly
- US English spoken text for "too" does not sound good

Talking Chef Timers (v.:2.45)
- iPhone 6P Lansdcape mode display not handled properly
- US English spoken text for "too" does not sound good

There are no other known errors in the apps.



Some users reported problems with setting up the spoken alerts.

These are not real problems, but you have to understand the alert settings of the OS.


If no sound is coming from the background, please check these device settings

(or write us an email from the app, we will explain):


1. Do not disturb should be OFF.

    Under do not disturb manual or scheduled modes the apps will not speak 

    from the background during the do not disturb intervals!


2. Sounds/Ringer and Alerts volume control should be set so that you hear the sounds.

    When the app is running in the background, it is sending you alert sounds. Alert sounds are

    affected by these settings.


3. Notification Center/app name/Sounds should be ON.

or Settings/app name/Notifications - in later iOS versions


where 'app name' is the name of the app


In some rare cases (e.g. sometimes after an upgrade) you need to delete the app and download it again to get back normal functions.


Each app contains a mail link back to the developers,

for support and for all your asks, needs, problems and questions, for the pat on the back or for the curses.





Clock TalkTime

Clock TalkTime

(Try out our Free apps first, for example Almost Time.)

Binary talking clock also included, for all who like silent, nonintrusive effective time telling. 

The included binary clock might need a tiny IT background from you to understand.

Beautiful clockfaces included.

Clock speaks several dialects of English and also Czech and Hungarian.



Clock 2 TalkTime


Clock 2 TalkTime 

Very similar to the Clock app, but speaks (loudly talks)

different languages, e.g. English, Arabic, Chinese, Spanish

(kind people helped us with these translations),

also has hourly chimes and hourly cuckoos signaling the number of hours. 


Especially great are the binary time telling setups. 

Discrete sound, no one else will know what these sounds are telling you.

The included binary clock might need a tiny IT background from you to understand.


The included analog clock in Clock 2 TalkTime also runs backwards (counterclockwise) or normally, 

has a 12 hour or 24 hour face for all these clock faces. 



Talking Timers


Talking Timers

This app uses the best features of all the apps we have created so far and much more.


Try out, check out the free version first!

It is fully functional, but contains two timers only.


Almost no power drain even with lots of running timers.

Contains countdown timers (e.g. run the timer for 5 hours 8 minutes) and 

count to time timers (e.g. run the timer every day till the 08:30 AM target time).


As the target time of the timer comes near, the human talking alerts are fired one by one.

Each timer can have as many as 18 separate and different human talking alert messages. 

Each telling the remaining number of minutes, just sounding a discrete beep or sounding some other provided sounds.


This is just a possible and simple setup:

at 07:50 the leave for work timer tells you: "leave for work in 10 minutes"

at 07:52 the leave for work timer tells you: "leave for work in 8 minutes"

at 08:00 the leave for work timer tells you:  "leave for work at this moment"

at 09:55 the start of study time timer tells you:  "start of study time in 5 minutes"

at 10:00 the start of study time timer tells you:  "start of study time at this moment"

at 11:45 the lunchtime timer tells you: "lunchtime in 15 minutes"

at 12:00 the lunchtime timer tells you: "lunchtime at this moment"

at 13:30 the presentation starts timer tells you: "presentation starts in 30 minutes"

at 13:57 the presentation starts timer tells you: "presentation starts in 3 minutes"

at 14:57 the presentation ends timer sounds a short beep for you.

at 15:00 the presentation ends timer gives you a different short beep.

etc.



Change to the 12 hour AM/PM time format, 

or the 24 hours military time format in device settings.



The setup and usage of this Talking Timers app is totally simple.


Start up or stop a timer by a single tap

on the name of the timer.


Check the remaining hours and minutes in the middle column.

The times are also color coded, for example yellow is for the last minute,

dark green is for the last hour.


Touch the gray number area of a timer to get into timer setup mode.

The target time types are color coded,

the white numbers are count to time timers,

the black numbers are countdown timers.


Each timer can be setup as a countdown or count to time timer.





When in timer setup mode 

set the target time for the timer you want to change, 

and select the spoken messages for the separate minutes before reaching the target time. 


Or change the clock face to have a different alphabet or style or color.

Your setups are automatically remembered.


Or just use the built in defaults without changing a thing.








The app will announce the remaining times even from the BACKGROUND!!

While you are using your other apps, or even when your iPhone is switched off (but not totally powered down). 


You do not need to look, do not need to touch.  You just need to listen.

Listen to the max 18 human separate announcements for each timer.


Listen to music from your iPhone while running (or while watching a video while running on a treadmill),

during doing exercises, cycling, and still be receiving these sound alerts from the timers.


In the morning be constantly aware of the remaining minutes you still have before you have to leave for school or for work.

Always know when your study time, class, break, coffee time, tea time, lunch time, dinner time starts or ends. 


Don't miss the next presentation, don't forget going home in time from the pub:-).

Know when your laundry is ready, when the shop closes, the meeting starts and when it ends, or when you have to leave, when the work day ends. 

Plan and prepare to have a break in time. When to have coffee break or lunch.


Do not forget, based on your setup, you might receive several human talking messages from each of these timers.



If you prefer, select a timer,

and see the countdown clock ticking away the remaining time.

Be in command of your time.
