Managing your wake-up alarms with Alarms Plus

Alarms Plus

If the native alarm on your Windows Phone isn't enough, take a gander at Alarms Plus. Alarms Plus supports multiple alarms, personal messages to great you, and has a handy puzzle feature to silence the alarms.

With Alarms Plus you can set up to ten consecutive alarms that can be spaced out up to ten minutes apart. You have five alarm sounds and if you really have trouble waking up, three puzzle levels to silence the alarm.

Alarms Plus

The puzzles are a group of mathematical equations and text entry that is supposed to wake up your mind with the theory being your body will follow close behind. Along with the puzzle, a personal reminder can be recorded to... well... remind you of something.  Like a morning doctor's appointment, a school test, or put out the trash before you pull out the driveway.

Along with being an alarm clock, Alarms Plus also allows you to create a to-do list. It's basically a free-form text field that you can use to create the list from.  Both tasks and alarms can be pinned to your Start Screen for easy reference. Alarm Plus will run in the background and behind a lockscreen.

Alarm Plus is a nice, simple alarm app that has enough annoyance to wake you up on time. While alarms can be repeated, you can only set the occurrence to daily. A weekday and weekend option would be nice. Being able to create a to-do list is a nice bonus but it's really a basic feature. Add the ability to set an alarm to each task and it might be better.

Alarms Plus is a free ad supported app that you can find here at the Windows Phone Store.

WP need one live tile, to manage timer,time and date, alarm just like ios or android. One thing I seriously miss is the timer

Tahiti Bob says:

There are lots of timer apps on the store, many free. Timer beta is my favourite. iOS has some nice options though.

cdbstl76 says:

This app still needs some serious work. Like the ability to choose specific days...

It has a Message to "Great" me huh?.......well then sign me up!

The 90's called for their horrible colour scheme back :P Damn that is one ugly app!
The 627.AM app is so much nicer...

Vheissu says:

And I think the 80s are less looking for their logo font back as well

Looks like they're just trying to keep to their schedule. Boone wants to hear about an app that a 3 year old child designed. My god apps like this put WP to shame. Some apps on IOS are like this, but not PAGES AND PAGESSS.

I've been using the built in one from day one when I got my Trophy, there is nothing wrong with it and it works fine....

LaraWales says:

Same here. It works the way i expected it. Nice to have this one. - Trident University

TJWINS says:

I can't believe you wrote an article on a worthless app. No weekday option. Another workaround would be able to choose each weekday separately then repeat weekly but that option isn't available either. This app is just like the rest of Windows Phone.....short on functionality.

"What a beautiful app."

Said no one.
