Our Thoughts

Perfect if you need more than one alarm

One of the major pitfalls of the native Clock app in BlackBerry 10 is that you can’t set more than one alarm. Luckily the aptly-named Alarm Clock app lets you set as many alarms as you like, each with their own times and set days to repeat.

The clock face itself is a sharp digital style with a built-in brightness slider. Nestled in the settings are options for a silent mode, custom snooze duration, and a great shake-to-snooze function. One particularly handy feature is the ability to set locally-stored audio files as the alarm sound - be it a song, podcast, any of the included 9 alarm sounds, or anything else you might have on your BlackBerry 10 device. .

I purchased this application. I like it for the large and bright display, but even when I check to make sure that the notifications are turned off, I am continually awakened through the night as e-mails arrive in my Inbox. I have tried to contact the developer with no response what-so-ever.

For this app and it's competitors to work, you must manually restart it after a reboot. Hopefully BB10 will soon be updated to avoid this. Otherwise BB10 devices can't be counted upon as alarm clocks. ((Please correct me if I'm wrong about this.))
