I've did some addition changes needed for the app to run flawlessly under the new iOS, e.g. the new dark mode is now supported.
CAUTION: Because of changes in the new iOS, music alarm is technically no longer possible when the device is locked. To play music during alarm time, the app has now to be in the foreground while the device is on. Otherwise only a notification is displayed at alarm time. I'm really sorry for this regression!
Ratings and Reviews
Sempre meglior, always gets better
I have been using this app since about 2009, and I’ve always liked it. Year-by-year, it gets better. It would be nice if I could choose a different language for the display of text, which would permit me to see “venerdì 30 ago“ instead of “Friday Aug. 30.“ as of now, it seems to be locked in English. I just changed the system language of my iPhone (and rebooted) to Italian and almost everything shows up in Italian, but the app still tells me that it’s Friday, August 30 instead of venerdì 30 agosto. Thus, it is not simply using the system language of the phone. This must really enrage the French. I do not doubt the developers will attend to this, because they are quite obviously alert and attentive.
Developer Response ,
I'm really sorry, but the app is not localized for the Italian language. It is very hard work to keep the app updated with the six languages it currently supports, so I've stopped adding new languages some years ago :-/ Sorry again!
GREAT App From REAL Developers
To add to my original review, I really appreciate the constant updates of this app. It really shows the way "real" developers work and stand by their products. These guys (gals?) are NOT the stereotypical "hit and run" app developers.
It takes REAL INTEGRITY to stand by an app from pretty much the start of the App Store (and we need all the integrity we can get these days, no matter where it comes from! ;-).
I'm not sure why, but the recently added "440 Hz" mode sounds particularly cool (or maybe familiar?) to me. Give it a try, but make sure you wait until the minute changes and you get the "alternate" tone.
The one and only atomic clock app that alarms to the second
I searched high and low for an audible alarm that was dead accurate to the second. None existed. I contacted the app developer and within a week he added this functionality to the existing app. As of the writing this is only only app out there with an alarm that can be set to the second. Yes there are countdown timers but these can not be set to alarm at a set time of day.
Beyond the alarm functionality, a beautiful clock as well.
