Editors' review

Alarm Clock Pro makes organizing your life via your desktop a breeze, assuming you can untangle the innovative options. By offering users a wide swath of date-keeping and time-monitoring options you can make your life simpler, however, learning the program itself may take up the bulk of this newfound time.

Alarm Clock Pro will appeal to anyone who is used to the multiple alarm features that Outlook offers. Unlike Outlook, this simple to install 15-day free trial is independent of a calendar or e-mail system. The many unique aspects are the alarm's capability to function on a specific day and time, in a predetermined amount of minutes and reoccur at any frequency. Alarm Clock Pro is set up to automatically make a simple alarm noise. However, the appeal lies in the program's capability to open your iTunes playlist as an alarm, open a specific Web site, or even play a quote upon your chosen date and time.

All these options sound like a lot of fun, but the setup is not intuitive. There are no options to easily determine how to draw from a user's music playlist or or add the quote. In our eyes, users must have an advanced technical knowledge to have the alarm clock do more than simply chime. In addition, the opening menu offers help repairing missing or corrupt files, which seems like a nice option, but raises the question as to how often these problems must arise to require such a choice.

Although we liked the numerous ways to configure an alarm, the unintuitive approach means Alarm Clock Pro is best left in the hands of more experienced users.

    "Alarm Clock Pro requires QuickTime"

    February 25, 2011   |   By Howard_Roark

    Version: Alarm Clock Pro 9.4

    Pros

    Many features

    Cons

    Requires QuickTime

    Summary

    Alarm Clock Pro sounds like just the thing I was searching for. I downloaded it to give it a trial on my computer. After installation was complete and upon clicking the icon to run Alarm Clock Pro for the first time I am given a warning that Alarm Clock Pro requires QuickTime and will not run without it.

    I refuse to install junk like QuickTime on my pc anymore. QuickTime ravages pc resources and gets its tentacles into everything. I've grown to hate QuickTime very much over the years.

    The requirements for Alarm Clock Pro do not list QuickTime, in fact it lists no requirements at all. Had I known that QuickTime was needed I would have never downloaded Alarm Clock Pro in the first place. Perhaps in the future the programmer will dump QuickTime. Until then, my search for a small alarm clock continues.

    "An alarm clock should be simple, this one is too hard."

    May 30, 2010   |   By jrcooper

    Version: Alarm Clock Pro 9.2.7

    Pros

    Nice looking user-interface, visually appealing. A lot of functionallity, if you have the time to invest in learning how to use it.

    Cons

    I have no idea what have of the function do. I was uncertain as to what a Chornoindex was. As such, I looked-up the word in the dictionary, and there is no such word as a Chronoindex. Is it Russian?

    Summary

    The publisher should consider a lite version of the software. A lite version, that just has a couple of the most popular features.

    "horrible customer service"

    March 05, 2010   |   By mortburn

    Version: Alarm Clock Pro 9.2.5

    Pros

    flexibility of features, if you can get it to work

    Cons

    NO response from customer service. No actual email address listed- must use web form and thus there's no record of your email being sent. No reply to voice messages left on phone number either. Program won't install properly.

    Summary

    Customer service apparently does not exist. You can't find the program after you run it for the first time, unless you re-open the program and re-install it each and every time you use it. My platform is Windows XP and it is supposed to work-
    IT DOES NOT. Complete waste of money and time.
