One big item on my short list of gripes for BlackBerry 10 is the lack of alarm settings. On most devices I've used you have the option to set more than one alarm rather than just the one that is allowed on BlackBerry 10. I keep an odd schedule some days, so being able to set multiple alarms is a key feature to me - something that can't be achieved right now on BlackBerry 10 without a third-party app (or using the calendar).
In its current state, the clock on BB10 lets you set one alarm and that's it. You can choose one time, and while you can select what days you want the alarm to go off, you cannot set more than one occurrence. I do like that you can pick the days for the alarm, but given the fact that there is only one setting it doesn't really add that much functionality.Â
Ideally we need the option to add multiple alarms at will. It doesn't seem like it should be too far fetched and it's something that is available on nearly every other platform. Being able to add alarms along with daily, weekend, weekday etc. would be a huge addition that pretty much every user would welcome with open arms.
Even adding in little things like showing the time before the next alarm - say your alarm is set for 6am, at midnight your device will tell you that you have 6 hours before the next alarm. It's the little things that make a difference.
Of course there is a workaround in that you can set as many alarms as you want in the calendar app, but that method is bulky and obviously adds extra steps to an otherwise simple process. You can always grab an app as well.Â
This is just one of those little things that needs to be in the OS. We've seen numerous forum threads about it and hear people ask for it all the time.Â
So do you want to see multiple alarms in BlackBerry 10? Let's hear it and hopefully we can convince the good folks at BlackBerry to make it happen!
