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.

"Exactly WHAT I was shopping for ... FINALLY!"

May 24, 2015  |  By Islands7

2015-05-24 06:22:59  |  By Islands7

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 3.1

Pros

Easy download installation
Simple setup, intuitive
NOT the backwards thinking, all about me win APPS = flip a coin IF we work
Free but ability to keep them in business via donations

Cons

Voted most likely to be bought out by MS, then compromised until it becomes unusable someday (get your copy NOW)

Summary

What a waste of time shopping the MS Store for apps that either didn't do the easy/simple tasks this does or had to become LIVE or some other odd interface with win8.1-64 ... UGH ... that time in trial/error diverted me from finding this perfect solution

"Simple and Effective"

2015-03-11 02:57:07  |  By jstew080

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 3.1

Pros

- Very simple and easy to use
- Works wonderfully with Windows 8.1
- Reliable

Cons

- None found to date

Summary

My husband actually downloaded this about 6 months ago. We are not morning people and regular alarm clocks do not work for us. This software allows you to set multiple alarms which is a must have for us. This alarm has yet to fail to wake us up and that alone is saying something! I just purchased a new computer and could not find an alarm clock that I liked for my desktop. I am running Windows 8.1 and using dual monitors. This actually stays on the desktop and that is what I needed. I just loved it so much I had to have it again. I would highly recommend this alarm.

"Great! Now I don't have to rely on my alarm clock!"

February 20, 2015

2015-02-20 12:18:01

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 3.1

Pros

Now I don't have to rely on my alarm clock, which doesn't always work for whatever reason.

The multiple alarm feature is perfect for scheduled events.

Cons

I don't like how it only lets me put a maximum of 1 hour play time...
I hate that, I'd like to set it for 2 hours, or a custom duration at least.

My alarm clock in my bedroom only allows max 1 hour, and I used to have a 2 hour option. It's my main pet peeve as I sometimes sleep past the first 1 hour play.

Summary

I will make good use out of this for sure.

"Great for teachers trying to stay on schedule"

January 16, 2015  |  By robert6262

2015-01-16 06:31:07  |  By robert6262

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 3.1

Pros

Easy interface that allows setting times with labels that help you identify what is taking place. I teach art and setting "warning" bells so students can clean-up before the end of class.

Cons

I have not had success with "waking" a computer that is networked and requires a login to access the software. Setting a variety of other sounds is not necessarily intuitive beyond using the supplied sounds.

Summary

As a school teacher, finding free stuff that works is always fun. Love this and have shared with many other teachers!

"Less than one star Completely worthless Waste of time!!"

 |  Version: Free Alarm Clock 3.1

Pros

All that this piece of Crapware has going for it is that it does seem to uninstall cleanly. I used Revo Uninstaller to get rid of it and then looked for orphaned files that Revo may have missed by using the Window Search function and Windows regedit. Didn't find anything with either of them.

Cons

Is far from intuitive. Does not install help pages even though there is a Help Button. That Help button leads to a useless page on the internet that only shows screen shots of the thing. NO instructions at all included on that page! There is absolutely NO way to program your wanted personal alarms and no way to delete the 3 preset alarms. I was NOT able to do anything at all with this crapware program except uninstall it. While that process does take you to an internet page to input why you uninstalled it (for whatever good that does) it also Phishes for your e-mail address. NOT cool!!! ....nor is it necessary.

Summary

Save yourself some time and aggravation and just say, "NO!" to this crapware.

"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
