When it comes to waking up for work, I am not a morning person. I usually have to set two alarms each day and that is after hitting the snooze buttons countless times. Now while our phone does come with an alarm clock function and the ability to set multiple alarms, there is no harm in utilizing other applications that offer more functionality. One that fits this description is Nightly Clock which I previously shared with you in the BlackBerry App Roundup.
Nightly Clock is a customizable night time clock that presents users with 9 clock colors, three font sizes, music player controls, camera light notifications, and the option to show your own message when the alarm goes off on the device's LED. One of the features that I take advantage of is the Interval Alarm option. When this is enabled, users can set the interval timeout, how many times to sound, and the time between sounding.
Since it's initial release the developer has made a few enhancements and improvements, which are shown below.
New features in version 1.41
- Added Alarm Dialog when Application is minimized but not in Active View (In another Application/Not Open Apps View)
