Alarm Clock is a small Windows application designed specifically for helping you check out the time and date displayed on your screen, and set up alarms as well.
There’s not much to brag about the user interface as everything is kept as simple and clear as possible, so there’s support for only a few configuration settings.
By default, the tool displays the time and date in a black rectangle, which can be moved to any area of the screen using the drag-and-drop support.
The program gives you the possibility to set up alarms by specifying the time. What’s more, you can insert a personalized text message that appears when the alarm is triggered and upload a user-defined audio file from your computer, provided that the file format is ALC. What’s more, you can change the looks of the application by selecting from several preset colors.
During our testing we have noticed that Alarm Clock carries out a task quickly and without errors. As it would be expected from such a small utility, it remains light on system resources, so it doesn’t hamper computer performance, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.
Since it doesn’t require much computer knowledge to set up the dedicated parameters, even less experienced users can learn to master the entire process in no time.
What it lacks
Several features are welcomed to improve the overall performance of the program. You cannot upload audio files with the following file types: MP3, OGG, WAV, MID , and WMA, and alter the color of the clock, just to name a few suggestions.
All in all, Alarm Clock proves to be a simplistic piece of software that comes bundled with limited features for helping you set up alarms.
