Editors' Review

+

Alarm clocks are a standard feature on most cell phones, but computer clocks typically don't do much but display the time. Free Alarm Clock adds alarm functionality to your computer, letting you create multiple alerts that can wake you up or remind you when it's time to do something.

The program's interface is plain and attractive, and we had no trouble figuring out how to use it. Attractive buttons across the top of the interface let users add, edit, and delete alarms. Each alarm can be set to go off only on certain days of the week, and users can select whether they want the alarm to loop, snooze, turn on the monitor, or wake up the computer from sleep mode. We especially liked the options for customizing the alarm sounds; there are 11 built-in options, including bells, birds, a flute, and a cuckoo clock. Users can also use their own audio files to create custom alarms, which is always a nice touch. The program has an online Help file that describes its features, but it's really not necessary; everything about Free Alarm Clock is commonsense. Overall, we think this is a great program; it's simple but well-designed, and it has just enough options to be flexible. Whether you need a program to wake you up, remind you to take a stretch break, or let you know when it's time to go to your weekly staff meeting, Free Alarm Clock is a nice choice.

"Can not set up specific dates"

April 08, 2012  |  By Tom the user

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 2.5

Pros

It's simple, nicely designed, and it works.

Cons

You can not set up specific dates, only days of week. Also, I wanted to use it for events that repeat every other week - can not do neither.

Summary

It does me no good, so I uninstalled it.

"Awesome Simple and Works"

March 14, 2012  |  By zebra148--2008

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 2.5

Pros

Flexible, easy to setup, works without problems, does not seem to effect any other programs. Has changeable tones / rings. And make each one work the way you want it too.

Cons

other than volume being limited by computer, and not able to make louder.....there are none

Summary

great little free App I have wish could find one as good for my android phone. You can try this and not worry about spyware or causing yourself problems with other installs. And if you do not like easy to remove....not sure why want to but always good to know.
Plus starts right back after a re-boot no issues.

"Absolutely the best alarm possible"

January 23, 2012  |  By cdonjdale

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 2.5

Pros

So easy to use

Cons

i have nothing negative to say

Summary

Easy to set-up & complete your settings. You choose what days, what alarm sounds, what message to show when the alarm comes on. You can even get it to wake your computer up out of Hibernation & turn on your monitor. (i am 74 years old & if i can do it, anyone can)
Thanks C-net for providing such wonderful downloads.

"I does what it's supposed to do, no more - no less."

January 10, 2012  |  By Kaktusnutzer

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 2.5

Pros

Setting the alarm is straight forward. I like that I have choices in alarm sounds. The feature of the alarm waking up the computer itself works well and is a big Plus.

Cons

All entries are set to repeat - would be nice to have a button for a "once only" alarm instead of having to delete the repeat alarm after a single use. I have yet to figure out what the button "clone" is good for other than reentering a set alarm.

Summary

You get more than you paid for because it's free.

"Has woke me up in time for work."

December 24, 2011  |  By Mehuman2

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 2.5

Pros

Wakes pc. I plug in my portable speakers and it is definitely loud enough.

Cons

Could use more ringers. Some of the ringers are really too quiet.

Summary

I've been sleeping hard lately & have overslept for work. I had started using 2 alarm clocks & I still overslept (got in trouble lol), now I have a this for a 3rd alarm & I absolutely love it. I set all three alarms & they are about 10 minutes apart. I hit snooze on all three & by the time I get to sit/lay back down they all start going off again. I have them all at least 10' from me & from each other so I have no choice to get up to get to them, plus I have to get to them quick cause I don't think neighbors want to be woken up at 3am.
