Editors' review

Always late? Be Punctual provides basic reminders and throws in a verbal time alert for good measure. The functional but crowded interface lets you set a single alarm, multiple reminder messages, and a time interval at which you'd like a male or female voice to speak the time. The alarm and messages can be accompanied by an MP3 or WAV file or the program's default sound. Unlike others in this category, the alarm and reminder features are separate. Additionally, setting alarm and reminder times is unnecessarily cumbersome, as you have to select the day (or date) and the time from drop-down menus. While we like the time alert, this freeware app is not as powerful as others we've seen. Still, it should satisfy anyone seeking a basic alarm.

    "Worst software EVER!"

    February 04, 2009   |   By renkma

    Version: Be Punctual 2.1

    Pros

    There are NO PROS whatsoever!

    Cons

    This software doesn't work!

    Summary

    This is probably the worst software I've ever d/l'd. Once setup was complete, an irritating accented voice started telling me the time over and over again. I tried to click on the desktop icon shortcut, and again, all I got was the time told to me over and over. Even in removing this software from my system, it started stuttering the time at me like I was killing it. Bottom line: don't touch this thing!!!!

    "Great little Alarm Clock"

    March 18, 2006   |   By Anti0ne

    Version: Be Punctual 1

    Pros

    Love the small size and the very intuitive readout for setting the clock. I use it on all my computers (5 personal ones for me alone!!!) I can get it to play any mp3 or wav file I want and can have the alarm go off whenever I want. Also has this kinda cool - kinda cheezy voice time telling feature. I dont use it cause I need an alarm clock, but hey its there if you do and it works just fine. I highly recommend this clock

    Cons

    Very minor indeed are these three flaws. 1) wish it played any audio file 2) I work Mon - Fri I dont need the alarm for everyday and am to damn lazy to set the multiple ones it can do 3) wish I could see the alarms that are set, only the current one is visible. Like I say very petty cons, but you cant please all of us all the time.
