App to Speak the Time

iOS and iPadOS
I'm hoping someone can recommend an app for the iPod Touch that can be set to speak the time at given intervals, every 15 or 30 minutes for example. Trawling the app store throws up numerous apps under "Talking", "Speaking" and "Clock", far to many for me to start wading through to find one that meets my needs! Has anyone found an app that will do as I outlined? One that will pop up at a given interval and announce the time either via speech or tones? Using a 4th Gen touch with iOS6.2.

This is one of my most favorite. It is called Chime. Check out more information about it right here on AppleVis at: HTH

Thanks Thomas, just the ticket! A nice easy to use app that does what it says on the tin. However, I do have one question. I've got a load of on and off buttons at the bottom of my screen, they seem to go on forever and I can't quite figure out why they're there. Can you throw any light on this for me? Oh, and am I right in saying there are only two tones and two voices? Not a problem, just wanted to check that I wasn't missing some further options hidden away somewhere in the app. Thanks in advance for any answers you can provide.

Thanks for this app suggestion. It works well, except for those buttons at the bottom. While they go on forever if you flick right, if you flick left, it seems like there are only a few. When flicking right, you get trapped in a loop. I'm assuming they have something to do with setting whether the app chimes everyday, or just weekdays. I hope so as I'd like to be able to have them only on weekdays.

chime is a good app you can use to make you're iOS device tell the time.

Ah, yes. There is really only one unlabel button at the bottom of this app. It does seem to go in to a infinite loop once you are in this area. It will just go in to this loop if you continue to flick to the left. Not sure why it does this at all. This button is to set the Chime Alerts to be set On or Off. By default it is set to On. I'm not aware of any settings to make this only occur on certain days and such. HTH

The app description says it can be configured to chime "Weekdays or Any days." So if that's true, there should be a setting for it. I'll get some sighted assistance this evening and see what I can find out. If I learn anything useful, I'll post back here.

I can confirm that there are just two buttons at the bottom, and it appears they turn chimes on or off. It does not appear that there is a weekday option as mentioned in the description.
