Are you an expat stuck in a country who misses the unique sound of Big Ben? Have you ever been in London within the vicinity of Big Ben and heard that unmistakable chiming? Chime Me Big Ben Free brings those unforgettable sounds to your Android device. One of my customers told be he drives people crazy on the train. People turn turn their heads in confusion looking for the source of where the chiming is coming from. In the mean time he is just simply trying not to laugh too loud. :-)

This app will work with the accessibility feature called TalkBack.

This app also contains a widget that allows you to mute and unmute the chiming with a single tap.

how to use and set up the app

After installing the app, choose to run the app and exit from the app. *** IMPORTANT *** Please add the app to the “Unmonitored apps” of the “App Power Monitor”. You can now set up the widget.

Using the widget:
The direction of the Big Ben icon indicates wether or not the chiming is active. Up means it’s active and upside down means it’s muted.

Using the app:
You will also see a Big Ben icon on the main screen of the app. The direction of the icon indicates the same as the widget.

Tapping “Exit” will get you out of the app but the app will keep chiming if you have the Big Ben pointing upward.

Tapping “Settings” will get you to the “Setting” screen.

Tapping “Silent Periods” will get you to the “Silent Periods” screen.
