QUITS UNEXPECTED BEFORE ALARM GOES OFF!
For now i would say it has no purpose at all except the clock you can look at! It doesnt work at all and i have had it for a week and not once have i got the alarm to go off! Not worth the money if you cant get it to work! Please fix this bug A.S.A.P for a better rating
Words have actual meanings.
I purchased Alarm Pro, and (1) I can't get it to recognize my iTunes library as existing, and (2) I don't see a wake to get it to wake my computer from sleep, as Apple (and my Mac) understand the term 'sleep.' As to the first problem, when I shift the menu to "Custom," the Edit button text becomes black as expected, but the button doesn't do anything, and no playlist or track is shown anywhere. As to the latter, this appears to be false advertising, as defining words just any old way isn't really legitimate here.
Words have actual meanings. An application performing a simulation of sleep is not the computer, sleeping.
The Seller replied that the problem with library recognition was "strange," and that their use of the term 'sleep' was "confusing" and would be corrected. That was several days ago, and the misleading use of the term has not been corrected, and I've heard nothing further about the "strange" failure of the program to do anything as advertised.
Why so bad?
Why is it so difficult to write an alarm program which reliably works, and is easy to use. After trying to use this program for several consecutive mornings, I have yet to hear it actually go off…. My $5 device goes off, why can't my $1500 mac!? Poor programming.
For starters, can you make the alarm am/pm easier to set? How about a 24 hr clock? Why does it say I have no connection when it is clearly plugged into the back? I have to turn on my WIFI to get weather updates?Interface seems archaic. Was this put together by a 12 year old? It this an experiment in alarm writing?
Let's have an update, and my maleable opinion will be reflected in this review. For now, NOT RECOMMENDED.
