As we all know the native BlackBerry alarms application is rather simplistic and extremely basic when it comes to features that it offers, and this does not meet everyones needs unfortunately. Previously it had been shown that additional alarms besides the one that is allowed in the alarms application could be added through your calendar, but for people with busy calendars this may not be ideal either. The folks over at JoPs agreed that this was an area that was lacking on BlackBerry devices, and have come out with a rather feature loaded replacement for everyones enjoyment called Alarms.
Alarms allows users to set up multiple alarms with five different frequency options, one time use, hourly, daily, weekly or monthly. Another feature of this application is that you are able to customize the alert of the alarm beyond just the sound. Users can select a picture to popup when the alarm sounds, or even a video file to play in the popup. For users who want a more simplistic experience it can also be done as just plain text like a regular alarm as well, but once you try the custom options you will be hooked. Along with LED support, Alarms also offers a status indicator so you will see an icon for upcoming alarms in your notification bar, which is very convenient to see how many alarms are still upcoming. Alarms is available for all devices running OS 4.7 and above and available in the CrackBerry store for $2.99 for a limited time.
