I'm about to replace my "dumb" old mobile phone with an HTC One M8, but (initially, at least) there are likely to be days when I never even think about using it.
My old phone was set to beep once a minute until I activated it to read any messages, which was good because if someone sent me a text overnight I'd be repeatedly reminded to look at it when I got up next day (I don't normally take my phone to bed).
On the downside, if someone else gets up before me they have to put up with the phone constantly beeping (or invade my privacy by activating the phone, or bury it under cushions, or whatever! :)
I've lived with that imperfect solution for some years now, but I was kinda hoping for a way to give me much more control. What I'd really like is the ability to make my phone raise an audio alert every minute initially, with the time interval between alerts gradually increasing so it's maybe only every hour or two after a while.
Well, if we're talking about what I really, really want, obviously I don't want a beep at all - I want a way to recognise who sent the text, and to synthesise voice output saying they've texted me.
Anyway, that's the gist of what I'm after. Am I likely to be able to find anything good?
