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.

"Effective Solution"

October 17, 2013  |  By DrHow0

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 2.7.1

Pros

Reliable.
Intuitive operation.
One-shot alarms admit reuse.
Adheres to Windows GUI standards.

Cons

I'd prefer if I could just type in alarm-time rather than having to select from a drop-down menu; but this is not a big deal.
It is not completely obvious what the "Clone" button is supposed to do, and its function is not mentioned in the documentation. Until I discovered it, I was looking for a way to set up defaults for all the settings.

Summary

I tried another of the apps in this category, Alarm Clock, and I gave it a scathing review. That program was a mess. This one has none of its deficiencies. I am very happy with it.

"Fabulous - Simply Perfect!!"

August 14, 2013  |  By allergylink

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 2.7.1

Pros

Essential reminder app for any occasion: be it appointments, dates or breakes (or time to wrap up work). Works in the background even when app is not running.
Has become one of my most used desktop apps. Looks just like it belongs to MS...(should have been a feature in the first place). Can't imagine living without is any more.
- Setting simple reminders throughout the day
- Choosing different sounds
- multiple reminder options
Just Perfect!!!

Cons

None whatsoever.
Perhaps the developers could add a snooze button?

Summary

Simply Fabulous!
An essential little helper that even works when not turned on.

"I cannot live without Free Alarm Clock"

June 02, 2013  |  By Pennie777

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 2.7.1

Pros

Pros: There are many alarm sounds to chose from. Some very nice like a flute and some serious wake up sirens that get you up (and the neighbors too). You can set it to go off even if the pc is 'sleeping'. You can set the volume you want it to use. You can set it up a whole week in advance. It's just plain awesome. I just had to re-install windows 7 and am back to get Free Alarm back on my pc again. Thought I'd let the world know about this wonder.

Cons

There really aren't any cons. When you've had it for 6 months or more, you'll tire of hearing birds tweet and reset to a new sound. That's about as bad as it gets.

Summary

Get Free Alarm Clock and tell your family and friends. Especially the ones like me that can sleep through the alarm clock. The highest & worst alarm will raise people from the grave. Nobody can sleep through that. Even if the computer is in another room of course.

"Ideal for our purposes."

February 04, 2013  |  By wammac1

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 2.7.1

Pros

Loud; you can actually hear it
Repeating; don't have to set every day
Unlimited; multiple settings allowed
Simple; install, click a few buttons, and you're alarmed, for free

Cons

Loop should be off on default.

Summary

Invaluable for our medication schedule (eight times per day and night). For anyone needing multiple alarms that can actually be heard, this is a great product.
