Editors' Review

+

Some Mac users want to use their computer as a substitute for an alarm. Alarm Clock Pro for Mac incorporates a number of features and options expected from an alarm app, but normal users may find other options preferable.

Available as a free trial version with a 15-day usage limit, the full version of Alarm Clock Pro for Mac requires a $19.95 payment to unlock complete functioning. The program's native installer functions well and provides the user with basic introductions if it is their first time using it. Activation requires acceptance of a user agreement and a prompt for activation of the full version. Support is available for product updates. After startup, the program welcomes the user with a user-friendly interface and well-designed and intuitive menus. Buttons clearly identify the different functions and options. Setting up alarms is easy, as is applying options. Users can set alarms to wake them up by playing an iTunes playlist, playing preset sounds, and even opening Web sites. Additional functions include a stopwatch and time index, which are useful for this type of program. Since most users will also have a smartphone, it would have been nice to see the program linked to an app to keep track of settings across devices, especially since the program is not freeware.

Overall, Alarm Clock Pro for Mac's intuitive design and basic features make it a good option for those looking to set alarms on their Mac.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Alarm Clock Pro for Mac 9.5.4.

"Doesn't work in 10.8 anymore"

February 06, 2013  |  By shish1

 |  Version: Alarm Clock Pro 9.5.2r2

Pros

This used to be an excellent tool that I used with Growl since 10.6.x

Cons

Since upgrading to 10.7 it was buggy and with 10.8.x it doesn't work at all.

Summary

My need was for an alarm clock to give me weekday only reminders (for work) to do certain basic things at a set time per day. Reminders in OS X doesn't allow for weekday only settings. My solution came with the $9 Due (http://www.dueapp.com/mac.html) which has solved my problems and works with the Notification Center. It's not perfect but it gets the job done.

"Excelent multi-purpose alarm clock"

January 13, 2011  |  By Macavenger

 |  Version: Alarm Clock Pro 9.3.8

Pros

Doesn't require the app to be running or started at login to play alarms. Good iTunes integration including fade-in

Cons

No backup alarm option should iTunes fail, such as if iTunes has a dialog box open.

Summary

I wanted an alarm clock that a) didn't have to be kept open to sound the alarm, b) used iTunes playlists (rather than just single tracks or whatever) as alarms, and c) could fade-in the music gradually to avoid wakeup shock. This software fulfilled that purpose admirably, and while not the cheapest software out there, it's not all that expensive either considering all it can do.

"Some elementry alerts were not easily setable."

October 10, 2010  |  By ps2os2

 |  Version: Alarm Clock Pro 9.3.4

Pros

Interface seemed nice

Cons

Simple things were not obviously easy to do

Summary

It is an OK product but simple items were hard to set and there was no way (I could see) for a reminder to retry until dismissed which I also need.

"I own the previous version. Not paying for a bu..."

Summary

...fix
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Pretty incredible really... They call this a paid upgrade when all they have done is fix 10 bugs and made a modification to the power manager "...as it should have been before." For that, you want $10? That just doesn't seem right.

"Poor, non-intuitive repeat function"

May 04, 2009  |  By fjmercik

 |  Version: Alarm Clock Pro 8.6.1

Pros

Not much, there are much better, straight forward freeware solutions available.

Cons

Program uses non-intuitive terms and interface.
I brought a MAC, this & other programs for my grandmother to use.
She had a minimal learning curve and little problems with other software
