Amazingly this still works under Yosemite. I did have a little trouble at first but then all of a sudden the problem dissapeared by itself. Strange!

Still working for me – and a MUST on my business MacBook Pro! To the developer: Please sell it again, I want to recommend it to my colleagues!

I had it installed on previous OS version. If I deny the "Access to Contacts and calendar" it still works well as a handy day planer and timer.

Please make Alarms available for Mavericks! This was the best timer/reminder app available and a crucial part of my daily workflow. (I really need the Calendar sync in Mavericks!)

This is currently the status of Alarms and Maverick. "Due to major changes in OS X 10.9 Mavericks, Alarms is currently not available. It might return if it turns out that it can be adopted to the upcoming OS X release."

Great little app that makes setting alarms simple and since it's a menu bar item it's always available no matter what app you're in. The price is not that much and just because it's only available via Apple's App store is no reason not to buy. You always have reviews here and at the App store that help you choose whether or not it will fit your needs.

Not worth $8 when you can get Alarm Clock for free.

Ok, seems to me that since 1.1.3 everything works fine. No more kernel panics. So I correct my rating to 5 stars!

I like this application because of it's simplicity, although I agree with some of the other comments that a few more features could added. One thing I would like to be able to control is the color scheme of the actual calendar, or for certain events.

I love this little application. It dovetails very well with iCal and GTD programs (I use it with Omnifocus and The Hit List). You simple drag and drop tasks, events or meetings into the dropdown menu and you set the alarm. It has a very Mac like interface and sync's with iCal. I would give it all 5 stars but I agree with others that at $15 the price is too high and even $7.99 at the Appstore seems a bit rich. Also why the price discrepancy ?

Mediocre, hard to justify $15. Can't even delete an alarm (you have to just check it off).

I love this App. But I realized its giving me kernel panics every couple of days! On two different Macs, since installation. Now I ran a test and did not use the App for 2 weeks: No kernel panics.. Since I did not change any of my other settings or app usage i am pretty confident "Alarms" has a severe bug. I really want to use this App. But i cannot risk stability of my OS.

The application is great and does right what it promises. Pros: Great interface, fun and very easy to use, lots of respect to details. "Drag to set timer" feature is awesome. Developer is friendly and responds fast. Cons: I'd liked to have a few extra "features", but these may spoil the simplicity of the app.

Please add more internationalization options! I.e. the first that springs to mind is in the calendar, "Week starts on Monday". Until then I'll hold my purchase.

With a couple of added features, this would be one great app. It could use a few options though, such as the ability to have it increase your timer in increments of minutes instead of seconds when dragging away from icon. Also being able to run scripts or even some custom events instead of just the system notification sounds (yes I realize you could just drag a script to do this, but it would be nice). A few minor interface tweeks would add to the app also, such as being able to select a colour icon. Have a "TODAY" button to bring one back to the current date. add "preferences" to the command-click menu. All minor items, but would useful.

Very nice app! Agree that Hotkey (keyboard) access would make it even better. I have encountered Two problems: I can't access the Preferences. I click the menu item and select Preferences, and nothing happens. Same situation with the Help. Nothing appears in either case. Thanks.

On my 13" display, only the next 7 hours are shown, so... as I can't find how to make it scroll (does it actually scroll?)... what if I need to schedule an alarm beyond this time-range? :-/ (no: not to tomorrow!!!) I wrote to the developer, whilst the app was still in beta, but never had a single word in reply!

Nice but it needs some more work for sure. Keyboard-centric users won't have much to love as there are no hotkeys yet and I am not sure if the dev has any plans for hotkeys of any type, global or within Alarms. Overall though, very nice, I am definitely going to keep an eye on this one, the day it says it can be controlled via keyboard I will be a happy customer. Nice start though. Developer makes many nice pieces of software, very talented group or individual, don't know which but great work is being produced.

I have never purchased an app this quickly before! What a great supplement to OmniFocus. Smooth. Slick. Unobtrusive. Useful. Wonderful! The ability to drag items to the menu icon and create a todo/alarm will be a great addition to my workflow. Thanks to the developer for this on!!!

Why didn't anybody come up with that brilliant little piece of software for a long time? I remember 'stickies' as a dumb replacement of 3M-PostIt® and Apple is trying to integrate ToDo items with Apple Mail. This one is by far more efficient, more quick, more elegant.
