Easy to use and reliable, this small alarm clock does its best to make sure you never miss an appointment.

Alarm Bluefive Software's small user interface is accessed through either the desktop or taskbar icons. You can choose to keep the interface on top of whatever you are working on, or let it run in the background. The time displayed on the interface resembles a digital clock, but you can easily adjust the color and size of the numbers. Setting the alarm is extremely easy, and is accomplished by simply entering the time you want the alarm to go off. The alarm display, including messages, and music can be adjusted through the program's Preferences menu. You can even add your own music files for the alarm. If you don't want to mess with the configurations, the preset intervals under the Quick menu let you quickly choose when you want the alarm to sound. A snooze option is included, and you can choose the snooze intervals. The navigation and commands were logical, and the program is easily mastered. Most important of all, though, the alarm went off each and every time we set it.

This free program is extremely easy to use, but a brief Help file is included just in case you need it. We highly recommend this alarm clock for all users. It has just the right mix of simplicity and features, and offers users an easy way to set and get helpful reminders.
