Portable Wondrous Alarm Machine 0.3
No installation needed
As a standalone tool, it does not require installation, being prepared for usage as soon as you decompress the downloaded archive and run the executable, thus sparing you from having to wait around for until you can work with it.
In addition, this means you can easily carry Portable Wondrous Alarm Machine with you on a removable storage device and continue to be reminded of your events or tasks, regardless of where you may find yourself.
Effortlessly create and run alarms, reminders and alerts
The utility is fairly simple to understand and work with, featuring a field where you can input your ‘Time Expression’ and allowing you to ‘Run’, ‘Run and Hide’ or ‘Test’ it to ensure its proper functioning.
In a side panel, you can browse through the ‘Libraries’ of existing alerts, being able to learn how they function more easily by reviewing the examples. In the ‘Alarms’ section are listed your own undergoing tasks, while the ‘Test’ tab allows you to observe the steps of a ‘Time Expression’.
When creating an alarm, you can give it a duration (+5 represents five minutes, while +3m30s refers to three and a half minutes). You can also use absolute time (for instance 12:45), or repeat certain items (using *). In addition, you can insert a ‘Signal’ (the message displayed in the tooltip once it expires), set it to open a media file (MP3, WAV, PNG, etc) or launch a program (EXE).
A handy event scheduler you can take with you
Overall, Portable Wondrous Alarm Machine proves to be a complex yet user-friendly application that can assist you in organizing your tasks, reminding yourself of upcoming events or being alerted when a deadline is due, all with minimal effort for you.
