I suggest that you make quicktime optional. I do not have Quicktime or Itunes on my computer because I do not like either program or any the other programs that mac downloads with them like bonjour.

The main use if I needed such a program is because I am working on the computer and I need something to remind me that I have to go somewhere.

Free Alarm Clock is not loud enough to be an alarm clock and often if you are busy on the computer you will miss it

Talking Alarm Clock it will attract your attension


Both I think lack a decent timer

One advantage of being retired is that I don't need an alarm clock.
Pass on this. Besides I don't like QuickTime.

#2 No, it is not called "Task Manager". Assuming you are talking about windows, the Task manager allows you to see processes, services and apps running and stop them if needed as well as other functions.
What I'm sure you intended is called "Task Scheduler" in case anyone is looking for it and it can do most of what the program offered here can do with a little effort. IMO this GAOTD is way over priced for a simple bit of code that relies on your system clock. Lots of freebies out there that can do this if Task Scheduler isn't easy enough or fancy enough for you.

For those of you who need help, this alarm clock can be configured for daily. You must select weekly for the alarm occurrence then there will appear buttons to click for each day of the week. That's it. I use Free Alarm Clock software mentioned above, but it has been messing up a lot lately. I notified them but never heard back. So I will try this Alarm Clock Pro to see if it works better. Thanks.

Mmmm ... Not very impressed with this at all especially as I'm using Windows 8. Why do we have to jump through hoops to get serial numbers etc. when the chances that everyone gets the same serial number most of the time anyway. It would making downloading, installing and registering software a much easier task. Just a thought.

A Question regarding 'Waking-up computer'..... for a program to wake-up the computer, the computer must be on sleep-mode, so it will still consume electricity.

If it is switched off, no program installed in it would wake it up, right? Is there anyway to switch on the computer automatically at a specific time?
Thank you

I could see some use for this on a tablet computer which would be small enough for one to set beside the bed but that would require leaving the computer running all night which isn't practical for a tablet. The only use would be as some sort of daytime reminder, and that feature can be found in many programs.

And for $20 one can just as easily buy a clock radio.

Ok it was downloaded to a Dell Laptop with 16GB RAM 128GB SSD and 1TB HDD. Its a cute looking program and does exactly what it says. The only thinng in my opinion is that your computer needs to be on all the time, ie running all night for it to work. OK Koingo guys let it wake my computer up from hibernate and we have a viable program. This one is about the same as the Alarm Clock app I downloaded from WINAMP.
So, sorry boys its not going to work for me, uninstalling it :(

Honestly I can't see any reason to install an alarm clock in a PC, since this is usually done by ordinary people on a Mobile phone.

Besides that, why pay 20 bucks if you can do the same things for FREE without installing anything in your machine (software, QuickTime etc...)???

As a FREE reminder & automated PC task tool, I also recommend the following ones:

And how about set alarms for every clock related to different time zone around the globe?

Installation and activation went smoothly for me. Activation is by email identification that you gave them. After installation, a message pops up that you need to install quicktime, with the weblink given, unfortunately, not a clickable one. Inatalled quicktime, and seems that this installation is even bigger than the actual program. Do not be misled by the name Alarm Clock Pro, because its function is not limited to alarm function as most who did not even care to try the software might think. Besides alarm at a specified time, date, or hourly chime, etc., you can even schedule it to open a website or an application,, or both together, at a specific time or hour, together with a sound or a tune from any audio list you have. . I tried to create a job to open a website at a specified time, and another job to open an application at a specified time, and it is obeying my order perfectly. There are many other functions, some of which I do not quite understand, because they do not have the usual chm help file with an index for searching. The help content is directly from their website, and no index for searching. For example, I do not know what "key smasher" does, and just cannot find any help. I think this software is mainly geared for Mac, since there are many choices (eg. alarm, playlists), that are not pre-installed in Win OS but most likely pre-installed in the Mac OS. But this can easily be dealt with.
In conclusion, there is more than an alarm function here, and for people whose main work is in front of a computer, I think this is a nice piece of inoovative software that will be very helpful. Do not dismiss something so prematurely because many (not even having tried it) say it is useless.

Under system requirements it states Windows XP or later, QuickTime. So Quicktime was very well mentioned for those that read. I was hoping I could have bypassed it in win 8. I am running Win 8 and it installed without a problem. However, Quicktime is totally useless to me so I never tried opening it. After installing Quicktime Alarmclock Pro 9 will start, although it popped up with 1 error. With the size of the program, memory required in the background, AND installing Quicktime, I don't see how it's worth it. But for those willing to try it and running Win 8, everything can be downloaded and installed.

Just out of curiosity, I installed this. Programs designed for Macs generally don't port well to Windows, and that's especially true of this one. A number of features are Mac-only, it's huge, it does everything with plugins (more are available on the website), it generates a lot of registry entries, it doesn't wake the computer, and I didn't check, but it probably uses too much CPU for an alarm clock (based on operation description). I found the interface cumbersome. It does more than just alarms, but it's not anything that I need. It has task lists, but that's way too simple for me. I have time-management software, and it's not calendar-based.

People occasionally notice voting irregularities, but most aren't bright enough to notice that the votes are manipulated on almost all days. There was always occasional vote manipulation, but heavy manipulation has been going on for almost 2 years, mostly by one person. GOTD refuses to post my comments about this, but they post the comments from others. The votes have no meaning--at all. Ignore them. I can think of about a dozen ways to manipulate the votes, it's easy, and the fact that it's so easy guarantees that they will be manipulated. GOTD refuses to do anything about this, even though it directly harms the website.

I have been using this for quite a long time. As a wake me up in the morning, but having to leave my computer on the whole night just to use it as an alarm clock is a pain because it doesn't wake my computer from sleep mode.
I'm not going to install the pro version just to test it.

Installs and works well with plenty of options, but 58MB installed for an alarm seems a lot, plus it uses 80mb memory whilst running in the background.

The only problem I noticed is that when I set a timer and then edit the timer options while it is running, it resets the timer.

There's plenty of freeware alarms and timers out there, although the ones I have tried in the past don't have as many functions as this program, but do you need all these functions? You pays your money and you takes your choice. Personally I will stick to the freeware Stickies yellow postits program which can also be used as a basic alarm, and is *much* smaller.

You need Apple QuickTime to be installed. I don't use Apple QuickTime for anything. I also don't like to install it just to see a nice clock. A clock is just not important enough to do such.

In general it is a bad idea to make your software dependent to some other third party software like Apple QuickTime is. We're not talking about something as the widely used dotNET or some library re-distribution here (I know, some people wouldn't even want to do that).

But today I was in an adventurous mood and I did donwload and install Apple QuickTime (download)

Then I installed the Clock. But when I start the Clock it gives me an error message that I should install Applle QuickTime (wich I just installed before starting the clock).
I already made sure that I configured all filetypes and mimetypes to work with Apple QuickTime (terrible though). What can I do? I installed the last version (7.7.3) of Apple QuickTime. Should I use an older version? I just don't feel that adventurous anymore.

No clock for me, I have to rely on all 25 other clocks I have already. Thanks for the adventure, all ended well because I used TimeFreeze.

downloaded, installed i thought. Had to go to website, fill in name and email (used fake obviously), put in code and THEN you download the program. When you actually install enter email and your set. :( Maybe not. Will not run without Apple Quicktime. NOT something I want or ever use. But downloaded just to try the program out. Very basic interface, overall can be somewhat confusing at first. Once you get used to it, it'll be easier. Didn't find any way to set alarms for birthdays or anniverseries. Made 15 different alarms with the various notifications and several are not available on the computer, running win 8 pro optimized for gaming I thought that was kinda odd. But ok. First alarm about to go off and.....Nothing. Second alarm about to go off 2 minutes later...Nothing. 3rd, 4rth, 5th, still no notifications, no sounds, no nothing. Uninstalled. Good thing I didn't really need this.

I downloaded and installed the program without a problem. It has some interesting features and does what it says it will do. If you wanted an alarm program, this one would be worth the $20 price and it is certainly worth installing and trying out. Some of the features and instructions seem to be Apple oriented but most still work on Windows.

My only question to the developer is "Can I keep the clock on the desktop at all times or is it just an alarm?"

Downloaded cleanly on my 6yo Vista 32bit HP. Went through the registration process with no trouble. But when I ran the program the first time and started looking around and clicking buttons, the program crashed and the shortcut was no longer on my desktop. Not only was it not on my desktop, it didn't even show up in a full search of my C:// drive. The only thing I could find was the installer so I tried to install it again using the repair feature. I still couldn't access the program. After that one crash, the program us officially DEAD! Too bad, too. I could have used this one

I can't see this program being very popular here. First, I would think there are a lot of alternatives both free and paid. Add to that I feel many users here will not see the need for this type of program. Nevertheless I decided to take a look at it (of course my install was with my Wondershare Time Freeze turned on).

The registration is a little different in that you are asked to visit the following page....

http://www.koingosw.com/store/giveaway.php?uniqueid=8QCMSD2GK

Once there you are asked to enter your name, email address, and a password that is contained in the readme file. After entering the information, a link is provided to download the program and installation instructions appear. I used this downloaded file and the program installed but not without a few glitches.

During the installation you are given a choice of your destination folder. Then you can choose to place a desktop icon, quick launch icon, start menu folder, and startup menu. I thought this was a nice touch to ask about these items rather than the program deciding for you. I choose just a desktop icon. Well I got no desktop icon and an empty start menu folder. Not exactly what I wanted so I tried again but found I needed to uninstall first and try the install again. This time I choose desktop icon and start menu folder. I still got no desktop icon but I had a start menu folder.

Starting the program brought up a welcome and setup wizard. During this process you will enter the email address that you entered on their site to register the program. I found the program itself to look quite pleasant and have lots of options. The big question in my mind is can I keep this install file and reinstall this at a later time? Only time will tell on that. But I can say that if you are looking for this type of program, you may want to give this one a try. Check out Download.com and read the editor review and some comments here....
