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.

"It was so good I bought the full version!"

October 11, 2012  |  By d83000

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 2.7

Pros

I've not tried all the functions but the alarms are easy to set up and work as advertised. I've put this area of the program through its paces and it has done its job admirable!

I keep 2 clocks on my desktop for different time zones and am awaiting to see how they handle daylight savings time as the two zones do not coincide.

Cons

Nothing to report in this area!

Summary

I moved to (Hot) Free Alarm Clock from Posibolt's Clock on Desktop because I found no after market support from Posibolt. Quite the contrary with Free Alarm Clock's creator. I ask for assistance via e-mail and got a very timely response.

My advice is give Free Alarm Clock a try and if you like what you see, switch to Hot Alarm Clock and support the programmer.

I'm in Europe and I keep track of US time in a 2ed clock. Europe switched to standard time this week. The US will go back next week and this program just got it right!

I'm IMPRESSED!!!

"Its really easy to use... Doesn't always work"

September 29, 2012  |  By stayplation3

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 2.7

Pros

It works... sometimes. I have 9 alarms set throughout the day to remind me of quests and events on Crystal Saga :p

Cons

Sometimes though it just won't go off. The alarm will be set correctly but when it's time to go off it just doesn't.

Summary

I still use it. I can't really depend on it but it helps for when it does work.

"Simple, easy to use"

May 09, 2012  |  By clownlady

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 2.7

Pros

Easy to install, easy to use. Various alarm tones available offering personalization.

Cons

Short snooze alarm - can't be set any longer than 10 minutes, default of 9 minutes; if computer is turned off, alarm doesn't work.

Summary

Overall a great program. Useful, not a system hog, does the job is it meant to do - besides, it means having to get out of bed to turn it off...and that means I am up!
