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.

"Simple and perfect"

October 11, 2014  |  By BlueSaffron

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 3.1

Pros

It just works! Choose a sound. Choose a time/day (one off or repeat). And write yourself some text if you want. My favourite use for it is to have a silent alarm .... and then a text message pops up to say 'stop working'. Just got a windows 8 machine .... and the built in app doesn't do what I want. Been using this one since XP. This is the first time I have ever bothered leaving a review.

Cons

None at all

Summary

Simple, straightforward, flexible

"Life Saver!"

March 14, 2014  |  By eatdrumz

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 3.1

Pros

VERY easy to use!
It works perfectly.
Nice sounds
Use your own sounds

Cons

None that I have found

Summary

Extremely easy to use.

Wakes computer out of sleep, and gets me up, dependably. You can use your own music files, or any sound file for that matter. It comes with cool sounds that don't give you a heart attack when waking up, or has bells, that if you need to be startled to sleep, can do that too.

Great backup to my wife's alarm clock, without having to use my Droid. I set my laptop on the dresser so we have to get up to turn it off.

Highly recommend it

I agree. This is easier than setting my alarm clock on my smart phone. There is also no registration code for this program, as it is free. You're probably thinking of another program.
