If you just want a chiming clock, set the start time to 00:00, Watch Length to 6 and Number Of Watches to 4, and it will chime halve hourly in 6 hour periods.
To regulate the volume of the chiming bells just use your phones normal volume up down buttons.
If you use system where one or more full watch patterns is not dividable by 24, Marine Chimer will keep on recalculating as long as its running. If you leave the application and return to it, you will need to readjust the 1’st watch start time to that days correct setting and save, so it can recalculate.
If your 1’st watch start time is set to later than current time. The MarineChimer will play a single chime on the halve and whole hour until the 1’st watch starts.
That we allow a watch length of up to 6 hours do not in any way imply that we recommend a watch of that length. When we sailed on a Tall Ship they used a watch length of 4 hours in a 3 watch system, and in heavy weather the professional crew utilized the chiming to change the person on the wheel every 1/2 hour.
The iPhone/iPad version of MarineChimer handles background operation by scheduling chiming notifications. The free version schedules 12 hours out (or 3 if it can’t connect to the internet and get ads/ check if bought full version), so require you to open MarineChimer before that has past so it can schedule for another 12 hours. The full version schedules for 24 hours out, so only requires you to open MarineChimer once every 24 hours to keep a constant chiming.
If you don’t want any more chiming just press the lover right MarineChimer button once and it will display “Stopped”, and no more chiming will be scheduled.
If you want notifications without chiming, change the setting on the settings page to “Chimer Off”
No phone can be guaranteed against screen burn-in.
We recommend you get an old cheap phone if you are planning to display the Marine Chimer permanently, as in your wheelhouse or on your mantel piece,
