    I just came from my first physical therapy appointment and was looking for a similar app. I need to get up every two hours and do a back exercise. I am trying an app called Calendar Snooze. I made a calendar entry called Exercises for when I wanted it to go off the first time, and I plan to snooze it every time it goes off. I've already verified that I can snooze it for two hours. So far so good, so I thought I would share.

    Interesting. Is it a separate calendar within the app? And so you set it at, say, 2pm, and tell it to go off at 4, and then set snooze for 2 hours and hit it when the phone goes off, yes?

    If I got that correct then please keep us (or at least me) updated on how consistently it works. As a LMT I'm looking for something I can recommend to clients to help them remember to do certain stretches, adjust posture, use ice or heat etc etc. Same idea as your PT so please let me know!

    It isn't its own calendar. It's just an add-on to the Google calendar app that gives you better snooze options instead of just 10 minutes. So far it's working pretty well. This morning after I got settled in at my desk i created an event in my Google calendar for two hours from then. In that calendar event I set one reminder 0 minutes before the event and will snooze the notification for two hours when it goes off. I did this yesterday and was able to keep snoozing the same event for two hours each time.

    It's a little silly to have to make a dummy event on my calendar each day but this gets me the behavior I want so oh well!

    Hope that helps!

    I was looking for something along these lines myself (I need a reminder to do some stretches my physical therapist recommended every 3 hours) and eventually figured out the magic Google string: 'medicine reminder app android'. There are several apps designed to remind people to take their medicines; not exactly my situation but close enough. A couple of recent reviews at 3 Free Android Apps That Help To Remind You To Take Pills On Time and There's an App for That! A Review of Medication Reminders - 22-Mar-12: InfoSheets and Tools Pharmacy tips article: contact Ying Tang Ng. I haven't tried any yet but I'm going to start with AnyTimer.

    AnyTimer works for me so far. I don't demand much of it, just one alarm five times a day, so I can't say much about its capabilities, but it does seem to do that just fine.

    Was looking for the same thing which landed me at this thread, but I eventually came across Minute Manager which lets you set a repeating or non repeating reminder in X minutes/hours. Only thing it doesn't do is let you specify the exact time, it just counts up from the time you set it.

    I know this thread is old, but it deserves all the help it can get!

    Check out reMind Alarm Clock. It's very powerful and versatile. Each alarm can be set to start at a certain time, on a set date, to repeat at x minutes/hours/days/months/years, includes a sleep time setting (not to ring during set hours), and to repeat on any day(s) of the week or 1-28th / last day of the month. (Why they don't include the 29th, 30th, and 31st as an option, I don't know.) It also gives you control over how urgent the notification should be with several different (and customizable) notification settings. Only setting I don't see, so far, is to chime with no notification to be cleared.

    Try "Wake and Walk" on Google Play. It has a 4.9 customer rating and looks like it does some kick-butt stuff for you!!!
