This is a neet little app that keeps track of hours by announcing them or evey 15 or 30 minutes. i always have my phone using it and it's great.

This app was great for years, but it has not worked at all on my 5s. I gave in and ended up purchasing another chime app that works properly.

I've had it for a few years, and it worked great last time I tried it. I think the app's volume is tied with the phone's ringtone volume, so if you get no sound make sure that's up.

Hello Jordan. I have been using this app since iPhone 4. Currently, I use an iPhone 5 without issues. It's a faithful little app. Love it. Not certain why it wouldn't work on the 5S model.

Hello Mike. According to what I see, down at the bottom of the app screen, there is an on and off, which is separated by a verticle bar. VO doesn't indicate that these are buttons, even when turning on Hints. I suspect that double tapping the off should deactivate the app until it's needed again.

It should also be noted that, if all you want to do is avoid the sounds of the app for a while, simply activating the mute switch will silence the app. You will still receive the vibration, though.
