Phone Notifier is configurable for sound, repeat intervals, repeat counts, vibration and LED colour. Additionally the app lets you set the instant of the remind ends – via a maximum number of repeats or when the screen comes on, or the device becomes unlocked etc.

For more information including a full list of permissions required and to download the apk, check out the application thread.
