Straightforward and intuitive usage
Subsequent to a brief and uneventful installation process, the application will automatically retreat to the notification area, where you can access it by double-clicking its icon, but otherwise staying out of your way.
The system tray menu enables you to work with Arise’s functions, allowing you to create, edit, turn off or snooze alarms, as well as adjust its running preferences.
Create advanced reminders, alerts and warnings, to never forget or miss an event again
When creating a new alarm, the utility lets you input a name of your choice, set a recurrence pattern (daily, weekly, monthly, on a specific date and a user-defined hour). You can play multimedia files when it rings (using built-in files or locally stored ones), adjust the system volume, take a screenshot or a photo from a connected webcam.
Moreover, you can display a visual notification, in case you do not hear the audio alert, or show the snooze options. Arise can even send an email to a certain address, open a web page or a local folder.
Arise provides you with a series of ‘Advanced’ functions that let you ‘Create A System Log Entry’, ‘Execute Shell Command’ or ‘Run AppleScript’. You can also set the program to execute a ‘System Action’ (logout, sleep, restart or shutdown your computer) as well as start or stop the screensaver.
A handy tool to cater to your time-management requirements
To conclude, Arise is an interesting and useful application that can successfully assist you in setting alarms, alerts, timers and stopwatches to organize every aspect of your day in order to make sure you perform all your tasks and assignments on schedule.
