This app needs some love to make it work with iTunes again.
The playlists and such do not refresh anymore.

Pity that there has been no updates. Best alarm app in the world!

This application has been invaluable for me over the past year or two. It gets me up on time to get to class, the office or anywhere else that I need to be, and I love that it works so smoothly, even on newer versions of OS X.

A nice alarm clock app. The developer's website seems to have disappeared though, so I don't expect more updates.

I loved this app until it stopped allowing me to select a tune from my library to be woken up by. (The window where the songs use to be is empty). I tried reinstalling and that didn't work. I couldn't find any preferences for it to trash.

It is now working. I fixed it some how. That being said I give it a 5 star rating.

I've been using this for years. You can't get much better than this for donation-ware. It's better than basic, and very convenient. It also hasn't been updated in a very long time, probably because it works just fine even in Lion. It simply does everything I need simply.

Why can't I add music to the playlist or select a source?

Ah I works well now. I now give it 4.5*
Would be nice to drag and drop tracks and search for them without using itunes but doesn't matter.

this is still the best timer/alarm clock app, even though it hasn't been updated in 4 years! but since it's free, the developer should open-source it so others can update it.

Very nice. Has an "egg timer", alarm clock and stop watch. I had Apimac Timer and the interface was not what I wanted. Alarm Clock sits up in the menu bar but also creates a nice window if you like. I give it two thumbs up!

I love this app, but I'm having trouble with using iTunes music. The app will only play the standard beep alarm rather than a song I've selected. Also, my playlists won't update so I cannot choose one of them. This was by far the best alarm clock for mac. If the developer was still around, I would donate.

Lately I've noticed that when I quit Alarm Clock my computer still wakes at the time for which Alarm Clock had been set - and the computer will not sleep on its own after this.

unfortunately it cannot play sound if you don't have an active session. i have my screensaver activate the fast-user-switch login window for added security and when i log back in the morning, i see alarm clock is open, but it never made a peep, because it apparently cannot grab the speaker.

If you want to lock the screen for security, you should try my Utility Lock which was intended for this purpose.

It is very customisable *dont mix it with the Apple Lock however* and quite secure.


PS. This is not to advertise my program, but more of to help a fellow user of this great alarm program

it's strange: after the first setting, moving the app to a different folder, the menubar item don't work anymore....

It may help to delete Alarm Clock's preferences file.

Alarm Clock is a menu item alarm clock for setting either one-time alarms or repeating alarms. Then choose anything in the iTunes library to wake to: songs, playlists, even podcasts. The application takes care of the rest, even waking the computer from sleep if needed.

You can configure your snooze duration to the length you want. You can even increase/decrease your snooze time right from the alarm window. Plus, if you have an apple remote, you can even hit snooze without getting out of bed. And if waking up to blaring alarms in the morning isn't your cup of tea, there's an 'easy wake' option which will gradually increase the system volume over time. And even this is configurable for you!
