Used to love this, but haven't had on my Mac for over 3yrs as it got very buggy. Thought I'd give it a try again, but I'm still running Mojave and this requires Catalina.

I use iTunes Match and can't seem to find how to make it the "go to" folder for music played in this app.

"Refined user interface with Retina display support. New application icon." Yep,- now i have a ugly black clock in my Menuebar (10.9.5), and it starts the timer slowly. But its is a good tool,- never let me hang.

Buggy. CPU usage of over 20% when sitting idle is not acceptable. Also many crashes on OS X 10.9.5. While the program looks nice, it's basically not a good idea to use it, in it's current state if you are trying to be productive.

To bad it cannot shutdown. It only supports sleep. Cool would be a feature to shutdown after playing an album or a playlist in iTunes.

This is currently very broken on a retina macbook on 10.8.2. I've emailed embraceware twice, and no responses. Plus we cannot download the latest version outside of the app store. Not a good experience at the moment...

This app was once unstable, sometimes, and not so pleasant to use. I think it is now almost perfect.

I'm surprised the dev doesn't answer to those bad reviews: I had the same problem on PPC when I switched from Tiger (where Awaken was perfect!) to Leopard, and had to find alternatives...

The new version is rubbish. Alarms often don't work. The Awaken Helper as a separate download is a mess. Also, I have had to keep the PKG handy as it vanishes constantly & I have to reinstall it. Waist of money.

It just crashes every morning. I reinstalled the OS with clean install, but still happens. Now I made up my own alarm with Automator, iCal and iTunes which is never fancy but the most reliable way.

Not so keen on the new UI for v5 - got trapped a couple of times when setting a timer by the fact that you have to create a timer, then save it, then click on the start button to actually use it. I would have thought that 99% of the time, when you create a timer, you actually want to time something! so the UI should make that the default.

I've been a registered user through many versions and, as far as I'm concerned, the latest 2 version have sunk an otherwise decent application. An alarm program that only functions sometimes is an extremely HUGE problem and that is what Awaken has become. If you're counting on it waking you up you should look for another program.

wow, latest v5 is now an ipad app. what a great trade-off, eye candy for functionality. the window is now non resizable and two big flaws are still there: one, once a timer is set, you can't change tabs and manage anyhting else without stopping the timer and two, you can't set a value longer than 24H for a timer so I have to make calculations to set a temporary, date-based timer, just to remind me my 27H-charge batteries are ready. This approach also forces me to manually disable this "what should be a one-time alarm" since there is no option to "auto-disable on completion". the "one time" option doesn't cut it because it deletes the entry, doesn't disable it. it's still among the best on its category, since you can use it (and play your music)without having itunes installed.
