Editors' Review

Easy to use and reliable, this small alarm clock does its best to make sure you never miss an appointment.

Alarm Bluefive Software's small user interface is accessed through either the desktop or taskbar icons. You can choose to keep the interface on top of whatever you are working on, or let it run in the background. The time displayed on the interface resembles a digital clock, but you can easily adjust the color and size of the numbers. Setting the alarm is extremely easy, and is accomplished by simply entering the time you want the alarm to go off. The alarm display, including messages, and music can be adjusted through the program's Preferences menu. You can even add your own music files for the alarm. If you don't want to mess with the configurations, the preset intervals under the Quick menu let you quickly choose when you want the alarm to sound. A snooze option is included, and you can choose the snooze intervals. The navigation and commands were logical, and the program is easily mastered. Most important of all, though, the alarm went off each and every time we set it.

This free program is extremely easy to use, but a brief Help file is included just in case you need it. We highly recommend this alarm clock for all users. It has just the right mix of simplicity and features, and offers users an easy way to set and get helpful reminders.

"No Nonsense Alarm"

June 12, 2011  |  By a_usher

 |  Version: Alarm 2.0.6

Pros

Can use any mp3! Will repeat until snoozed/stopped. Adjustable volume
Military or AM/PM
Quick options: 5, 10, 15, 20, or customized mins
Custom alarm message. Can be set to full screen
Custom snooze interval
Choice of big/small blue/red/green display

Cons

After using this alarm for about a year or more, and updating through a couple versions I still haven't found any.

Summary

Easiest to use alarm I've come across with all the features I want. I've tried finding a better alarm but anything else I download get's uninstalled quickly. I'm a fan!

Being able to use any mp3 I want is the reason I first installed. Having this alarm get better and better with every version with the perfect settings has kept it in constant use.
