The Monday-Friday and Saturday-Sunday alarms are next on the chopping block, and are another great feature to the MultiAlarm. The Monday-Friday alarm is even better for those in the workplace (well, those with the typical M-F 9-5 kind of schedule) as you know that the 5am wake-up you want throughout the week won’t sound off on Saturday morning. Speaking of Saturday morning, the Saturday-Sunday alarm let’s you choose when you want to tackle that hangover by setting an alarm for those days only (might I recommend nothing earlier than noon?).
Need to be sure you’re on your toes at 2pm on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday? How about at 11pm on Mondays and Tuesdays? Whatever the date and time combination, this is where the custom alarm comes into play. Set a time and choose which days you’d like it to go off, and let the alarm serve it’s purpose. Ideal for status meetings, sporting practices, and marital couples who schedule, you know, that sort of thing.
Mobylo’s installed a neat feature into the MultiAlarm that let’s you decide whether or not you want the aforementioned alarms going off on holidays or not. The application already has a set database of all major US holidays preloaded onto your BlackBerry, but you can add, delete, and edit those to your heart’s content. Being able to choose from various countries would have been a nice addition, but it’s not too much of a hassle to add some dates in.
The big thing about the MutliAlarm is it’s multiple functionalities. You can have all five alarms going at once, all for various reasons. The Mobylo website calls this a “must-have” for BlackBerry users, and we’re going to agree with them. The application works as it should, no bugs to be found, and you better believe it got me to work on time this morning. The MultiAlarm is officially released on January 20th from Mobylo for a nice list price of $29.99 USD, and BlackBerry Cool readers get a 20% discount (until January 31st) when they enter “BLACKBERRYCOOL” as their coupon code when purchasing.
