Bad Version

This app used to be awesome, but like others have said, it now crashes instead of the alarm going off. Don't buy it until it's been updated, or you will waste your money.

Not functional

I bought version 1.3 after reading a few good reviews. Whenever the alarm is set to go off, the application "crashes" and closes, and the alarm never goes off. So, but this if you feel like wasting $5 on an application that does not work .

I had pretty good luck with earlier versions of the app, but since 'upgrading' to 1.3.1 I too am getting crashes instead of alarm with Lion. Avoid this app!
