Wonderful and I hope the developer is reading this

I wish there was a way to email the developer like most apps allow. This app seems phenomenal. I only wish I could have a function where you can only use the snooze once and then after that the nagging alarm takes over. Otherwise I can keep hitting snooze. I like the idea to get one "get out of jail card" snooze and then I'm nagged every minute or every five minutes until I start the task. If I had the function to maybe use this news like this this app would be 10 stars. I'm hoping since the developer doesn't leave anyway to be contacted that maybe he reads the reviews here. Really wonderful that he puts this out for free in hopes that people will donate for all his work. If he has that snooze function I wrote above I'll pay.

The only other function that would be cool would it be if I ended up not doing something I could market as "failed" or whatever and the app would kind of keep track of my streaks for when I did do it or not. Maybe every 10 times I did it I get a little virtual reward like a flower or jewelry or something. And the more I did it the bigger the reward would be, the harder to get rewards. But if I failed too many times than those rewards would start disappearing. I hope the developer will consider taking this app to whole new level at least the option to turn this app over to a game to make new habits. Thanks. I hope you're listening Mr. developer.

iWatch update. Love the paid for version

After downloading the free version I immediately saw the potential for awesomeness. It keeps everything in order and I haven't missed an appointment yet! Much more user friendly than the reminder that come with iPhones. I gave it 4 stars because I wish that I could set it to make a subtle noise even when my phone is on silent or on do not disturb but that might be a limitation on the iPhone.

I down graded my review a month after my iWatch came because the app wasn't compatible, well they fixed it on the last app update! I'm back to loving the app more than ever! You can even customize the length of the snooze for each alarm! If I could change one thing it would be to add two snooze buttons on the iWatch sometimes it would just be more convenient to be able to snooze an alarm for ten minutes for when I want to be reminder of something right away or an hour when I want to remember something later. However, it hasn't been an issue in a while with the new buttons on the app that allows you to add an hour or a day to an alarm in a swipe, thumb read, and tap.

4 Jan. New issue came up, I almost always use 24 hour time for work but I can't change this on the app and someone told me 1400 and I saved an appointment at 4:00 pm so I missed my appointment. I really wish I could change this. It would make my life easier

Stupendous beast of an app!

I've had this app for a very long time and have taken it off and put back on my phone many times. My issue in the past was it had so many options laid out in a way that was very confusing for complex reminders, so I used at least two other apps instead to make it easier, but wasted a lot of space. I downloaded Alarmed again a few days ago and the changes blew me away. Much, much easier to get to know but still all the bells and whistles (I have the extras package.) It still takes a little patience to learn all it can do, but the info pages are excellent at explaining all your options clearly. Very well written. It's easy to start using, you'll just find all the different ways to use it with a little time. I like lists, and I now use this as a replacement to the native calendar app in most cases. Clickable links to phone numbers! Location fired reminders (you can enter as many locations, specific or more general like a city name) that can be used for shopping lists! I'm still pondering all of the new ways I'll be able to use this app. Worth every penny, including the extras package. This app has been around forever and is regularly updated so no worries about a dead app 6 months from now. Alarmed, you are a genius and I'm a little in love with you.
