Free Digital Alarm Clock
Free Digital Alarm Clock is a lightweight Windows application whose sole purpose is to help you set up alarms for remembering important tasks that need to be done.
The advantages of being portable
Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.
You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to create alarms on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.
You are welcomed by a minimalistic panel that displays a digital clock and offers only a few configuration settings to tinker with. Although at a first glance it may look pretty easily to tweak the dedicated parameters, the layout is not quite intuitive.
The program gives you the possibility to select the time zone and choose between several preset sounds that are activated when the alarm goes off. Additionally, you may test the audio files directly from the primary panel. On the downside, you are not allowed to upload a custom audio file from your computer, so you are stuck with the preset options.
The tool also offers support for a smart feature, called “Don’t Let Me Sleep,” which empowers you to disable everything on the alarm clock interface. What’s more, the AM is represented on the clock with a green dot, while the PM value is displayed with the aid of a red dot. It is important to mention that the utility provides support for a snooze function.
During our testing we have noticed that Free Digital Alarm Clock carries out a task quickly and provides good audio quality. It doesn’t eat up a lot of CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered.
To sum it up, Free Digital Alarm Clock proves to be a simple clock and time management application that comes bundled with limited features for helping you set up alarms. It would have been useful to see support for user-defined audio files, custom notes, and popup messages.
