This application lets you set reminders and display different time zones, but is cumbersome to use. Travel Atomic Alarm Clock's busy interface is cluttered with alarm time, current time, snooze time, and days with alarm, just to name a few things. Like similar clock utilities, it lets you accompany alarms with audio files or the launch of a file or application. In addition, it has a snooze feature and you can synchronize the clock with a few atomic clock servers. Using the Super Alarm feature, you can set several time intervals for morning activities, such as getting out of bed and eating, but was quite confusing to set up. (Input your Start Work or Boarding Time, and the main alarm will set itself.) You also can set up different time zones for display. We would have liked some guidance in using the program, but alas, no help files are included. Although it offers a novel approach to setting an alarm, the fact it's free can't offset this application's unintuitive design.

This full function multi-time-zone Atomic Alarm Clock allows you to define time zones and wake-up times to as many cities and countries as you want. No matter where you are you can always wake up to your favorite MP3 Music or CD, even Mpeg & AVI Videos. Whats more, if you leave the Travel Alarm Clock program running while you are on the web it will automatically set your PC time to the atomic clock time which is accurate to seconds. You can the "Super Alarm" for a detailed wake-up or quickly set the basic alarm by either selecting the desired hour and minute or if you want to use it like an EGG TIMER simply select how many minutes from now (Now+) you want the alarm to trigger. There is even a talking version that allows the clock to say what ever message you want. Version 3.23n may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
