Waking up to headache-inducing buzzers and static-plagued radio stations can now be confined to your past. Alarm Clock Pro enables you to design your daily routine and perform various tasks automatically, such as starting your favorite iTunes playlist!
With the sheer amount of functionality Alarm Clock Pro offers, it can easily integrate into nearly every aspect of your life. Speak or display favorite inspirational quotes randomly throughout the day, or even send them as text messages to your cell phone! Have important reminders, or even birthday cards, e-mailed to contacts. Record laps with the Stopwatch. Track time differences for your investment portfolio. Even use it to help cook dinner by using the timer!
In addition to Alarm Clock Pro's extensive list of programmable tasks, it also offers flexibility when it comes to timing alarms. Many solutions offer the ability to set alarms based on a specific date. However, Alarm Clock Pro can also initiate alarms based on a recurring monthly, weekly, daily, hourly, or even minutely schedule! Even start a countdown timer based on a specific time interval.

Super Useful with Reservation
I’ve used this software for a long time. I’m a middle school art teacher and need to remind students (any myself) when clean up time is. And worse is that Friday’s schedule is different and doesn’t match the bell. In short Alarm Clock Pro is perfect.
My one issue is that the current Koingo version has a slightly different format to indicate which days you want to have a given alarm activated. Activated days by default are blue. To deselect them you click and they turn black. Sort of. The letters are so small and the change is so slight that it is very difficult for me at least to see. When I contacted tech support about this all I got was a shrug saying that it was just the way the OS worked. Lame. Lame. Lame. I know enough about programming to know that there is always a work around and to shrug off a suggestion is laziness.
Update: the program has grown more buggy over time. It randomly changes alarm times. Useless.
I love Alarm Clock Pro
I have ADD. I leave myself notes, reminders, post-its and nothing is as effective as when Alarm Clock Pro suddenly *speaks* out of my laptop, reminding me that it is “time to feed my pets.” Yes, some days I am so unfocused (or hyper focused) that I forget to feed my dogs. I can write the script that the app’s adorably robotic voice uses to remind me. The vast array of settings available is terrific for me — with a few clicks I can update the reminder to “rotate the laundry” or “check what’s in the oven.” Or remind myself a week in advance of a loved one’s birthay. A voice telling me what the alarm is for is infinitely better than any alert sound on other apps I’ve tried. I can tune out an alert sound. And when the message to feed the dogs is so familiar I start tuning it out, I can edit it into something else that will make me laugh the next day. Alarm Clock Pro is one of my most valuable apps and it’s saved me from myself more times than I can count. I will genuinely celebrate the day I can use the app on my iPhone because I can still get lost in my thoughts when I’m away from the laptop. THANK YOU, creators!
I will say that I was surprised to see that my mac didn't have an alarm clock to start. Maybe just me not being able to find it. Anyway, the parts I do like is the actual alarm. I like that I can link it to a website that will help me get up. (I set it to pandora) If I had music in itunes, you can do that too. The clocks are a bit corny but accurate. Most of those clocks are small and can be put anywhere on the desktop. I like using a swim clock because of the fact that it takes over the desktop and is dark. Easy to sleep with. If I were traveling, I would need something in itunes or use one of the canned alarms since most places ask you to login to the service for wifi. Overall, pretty good. Easy to use. Not always intuitive (had to go to help to find the private alarms).
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
