I really like the calendar integration I really like the calendar integration... I often set reminders in advance of the calendar event and this makes it easy (e.g. reminding me to bring certain things to where I am going). This works even better now with profiles. I can use a tag like "#30min" and set up a profile to fire off the alarm 30 minutes before the event. Magic. :)
I've been having pretty consistent problems with this alarm app. It used to be great, but lately it's been failing to go off after a couple of snoozes. I snooze it a couple of times, then it starts showing the wake up screen with notifications and after that it doesn't go off anymore. Also the notification gets stuck in the notification shade and I can't clear it without a restart of the phone. I'm using a T-Mobile Samsung GS 6 with 5.1.1 stock firmware. What gives? I've been late more than a few times.
Love what this offers but 2 issues If I could make one suggestion, please add an added delay before voice messages are spoken after the alarm is dismissed. It's bad enough that my wife has to hear the alarm but the immediate voice message is insult to injury when she could sleep in. A 3 to 5 minute delay would be perfect to allow me to get to the bathroom and hear the weather as I'm getting ready for work. Secondly, this app is consuming almost as much battery as my screen on time. If the second is not addressed, I will be forced to delete
Truly useful after a recent bug fix This is, in my opinion, one of the most useful apps around. It frightens me to think of how many times I would have forgotten to set my alarm or been woken up unnecessarily because I forgot to disable it. The calendar hash tag function is ingenious and is a good example of how these phones are supposed to make our lives better.
"Speak messages after alarm" doesn't work in this version Had the free one and though it great. Loved the way it told me the weather and my appointments. Upgraded to this one. In this one the "Speak messages after alarm" option doesn't stay selected. Didn't realise this was why it wasn't working how I wanted until after the refund period was over. So I've wasted my money on the "Pro" version that's worse than the free one.
Alarmingly good Easy to use, reliable and has a lot of options to tweak your alarms exactly how you want them. Great app!
