I just bought the iOS app. I am not getting alarms or notifications from the app. When I flip the “Alarms active?” switch, the app crashes.
Can you start the app and click the envelope icon in the bottom toolbar and select the “Feedback with diagnostics” action. I’ll have a look at the logs and be in contact with you if I need any more information. Sorry for the issue and I’ll resolve it as soon as I can.
With regard to notifications, ensure that you have enabled notifications for the app: click the cog icon in the bottom toolbar and then click the Notifications; set the options you want.
The default notification sound for all recipes is the system default sound (usually just a single ding). If you want something more noticeable I’d suggest you select a different sound – open the recipe, scroll down to the Reminder Alarms section and tap on the SHOW SETTINGS to see the possibilities. The first option “Alarm sound” allows you to select a longer sound to play when the alarm triggers – the supplied sounds are all just under the 30 second limit imposed by apple, so you are more likely to notice it.
