Editors' review

This alarm program is easy like Sunday morning--but hopefully you'll get to snooze on Sunday and program this puppy for Monday. Easy MP3 Alarm Clock lets you set one alarm (and one only) to play your favorite music track in MP3 or another music format. The program window is compact and easy to use. One button lets you browse for music files on your hard drive, while drop-down menus help you set the alarm. One shortcoming we discovered during testing is that you can't minimize the window to the system tray. Overall, this is a basic, useful program that's probably easier to use than the Windows scheduler.

    "SnapDo Spyware installed!"

    April 21, 2014   |   By andreas_andrews

    Version: Easy MP3 Alarm Clock 1.0

    Pros

    It worked the one and only time I used it, but I didn't test it properly due to the main issue.

    Cons

    The installer that it came with (even though I used the 'direct download' link from CNET (and not using the usual the installer which usually comes bundled with crap) installed Spyware known as Snapdo 'smartbar' which is a browser hijack. It removed and replaced the Chrome icon, and embedded itself deeply into my system. It took rigorous cleaning to fix the issue and wasted a load of time.

    Summary

    This isn't even an app you really need, I actually had better results simply creating a scheduled task in Windows using 'Task Scheduler' which comes installed as a Windows service. However, I used it as a backup alarm to make sure I woke up and ended up having to waste a shed load of time cleaning my machine. Just search 'Snapdo'. BE WARNED! I hope this information prevents future users from downloading, I used to trust CNET blindly and not any more, I'll be reading reviews in future and taking note, and also being more careful with all websites that offer software downloads. Such a shame that this has happened as I have trusted CNET for many years up until this point, and if I can't trust CNET my feeling is that I can't trust ANY website.

    "Installs Two spyware programs without consent. Beware."

    April 09, 2014   |   By linkdude64

    Version: Easy MP3 Alarm Clock 1.0

    Pros

    I won't run the software now that I've seen what it does.

    Cons

    Do not download. It's attempting to put viruses on your computer via "Livesupport" and "Auto Optimizer" programs that it installed without telling you anything.

    Summary

    Screw this program. If I can find a report button, I will click it.

    "good program to set one file to be opened at a set time"

    February 19, 2010   |   By zacnickp

    Version: Easy MP3 Alarm Clock 1.0

    Pros

    opens any file at any time specified, very light weight, and you can open the program multiple times, though each instance will only set to open one file at one time. very easy to set.

    Cons

    no snooze button, only one alarm per instance, not skinnable, doesnt min to tray.

    Summary

    i went through about 25 different alarm programs, this one is the simplest, and most lieght weight, met all my needs, i would use it more often if i didnt have Galarm on my phone

    "Stopped working after 1 use."

    November 01, 2009   |   By Xrispie

    Version: Easy MP3 Alarm Clock 1.0

    Pros

    Its free.. Its on this site.. and your already here to download it.

    Cons

    Uses windows media player to run the files.. and once its (WMP) set to non default the program stops working, and fails to open the file for alarm.

    Summary

    I fyou use WMP as your default.. it probably work wonders for you.. small in size and easy to use.. If you dont.. dont waste your time with it.

    "Simple, fast, and stable..."

    July 07, 2009   |   By Ludicrous--2008

    Version: Easy MP3 Alarm Clock 1.0

    Pros

    Trying to get Windows Task Manager to launch media player and play an mp3 became really annoying, so I came to cnet to find a downloadable alarm clock. This one is exactly the perfect one. You pick the mp3, the time, and click set. Idiot proof.

    Cons

    I have no complaints.

    Summary

    This product's simplistic purpose makes it ideal for the average Joe that just wants to wake up to some music for an alarm. It is also less than half a meg, which is always nice for downloading and transferring to other machines quickly. My thanks to the developer, this program is perfect for what I need.

    "Bad programming"

    March 14, 2008   |   By frankiedenton

    Version: Easy MP3 Alarm Clock 1.0

    Pros

    It doesn't crash my system

    Cons

    When you select what time you are going to wake up, it doesn't give the option of AM or PM. So if you are thinking (24 hr) you are wrong. I selected 4:00:00 to wake up, and it converted that to 16:00:00. Why would it make that assumption? It's the perfect alarm clock for someone who has no responsibilities to be anywhere on time.
