MP3-playing alarm

Stay on top of important tasks with this handy desktop alarm.

If you have ongoing tasks throughout the day, this desktop alarm will keep you on track to the tune of your favorite song. We didn't understand the name, but we loved what it had to offer.

MP3 Pizza Timer offers a sleek, easy-to-understand user interface composed of an oval-shaped window with the countdown clock at the top and buttons for selecting a target time (in military format) as well as the MP3s. There are also buttons for playing, stopping, and pausing the song. Shortcut buttons on both sides of the window let you add or remove time increments of one and five minutes. We liked the drag-and-drop support for easily grabbing MP3 files, and in our tests, the alarms went off as promised.

The program comes with a very brief, how-to guide, but most users will find the interface very intuitive. With that in mind, we recommend this free desktop alarm for all users.
