Customer Reviews

Great App but I have a Request

This is exactly the app I've been looking for... 😃 However, I would like it even more if it could run in the background, still operate when the screen is locked & when the app is closed.

I would actually be willing to pay for an app that could do those things as well. 😉

I will update my rating once this is fixed.

Great App

I have used for a while. I agree with some of the other reviews... It would be great if it worked on the background. Some of its functionality is also not working... Such as the Horoscope. It used to work :(. I have not fully checked all the functions though.

Great Alarm App

I've used this alarm for a number of years and has always been reliable and easy to use
