Customer Reviews


I am a teacher and wanted to use this app for letting me and my students know when the bell was about to ring. The app advertises the fact that it can set multiple alarms throughout the day and how easy it is to connect to Itunes. The app works for 1 alarm but almost always crashes after that alarm. I also still have not been able to connect the app to iTunes. There are zero instructions from the app to do this nor a setup phase. If you are like me and you have multiple alarms set throughout the day for classes then the app loses almost all useability unless you close it out and open it again for the next alarm. I strongly encoursge you to look for other alarm apps, especially if you’re looking to utilize multiple alarms.

How the mighty have fallen

This used to be a very solid alarm app, although there were always a few edge case bugs. Now, on Sierra, it reliably crashes at the first alarm set for the day. Look elsewhere—and let me know if you find a good alarm app. I’m in the market.
