BBSmart Alarms Pro v.1.24 Reviewed!

Comments

PROs/CONs

I love this app primarily because you can set the individual days on which you want your alarms to sound, and create an infinite number of alarms (with no glitches when you’re setting up conflicting alarms!). I also like the visuals – the old-timey digital clock alarm is great if you can take the 80s nostalgia of waking up for school. And I really the silence-when-unholstered option, so you can quickly kill the alarm’s sound once you’ve clearly attended to your device (also great if you forget you’ve set an alarm right as it goes off in a packed meeting). My only qualms would be that the regular alarm doesn’t allow you to end an alarm on a given date or week, and the price – $15.00! I think great alarm software is definitely worth it, but some may have trouble justifying the price tag. For $8.00, everyone should have this app, but for $15.00, some may be hesitant to throw down the dough.

PROs

  • Looks great
  • It’s dependable and LOUD (if you want it to be)
  • The silence-once-unholstered option works well

CONs

  • The regular alarm doesn’t allow you to end an alarm on a given date or week
  • The price

FINAL CONCLUSION

After using BBSmart Alarms Pro for a few weeks, I can honestly say that this is the best alarm software I’ve seen yet. It looks great, works well, offers significant customizability, and makes it easy to manage a large number of alarms. It would be nice to schedule alarms to end their recurring cycle on a given day or week, and the price is a little high, but if you’ve got this app you can replace that $30.00 alarm clock you’re thinking of buying yourself at The Source (and even save yourself the radio-interference that usually comes with setting your device next to one of these alarm clocks). All in all, BBSmart Alarms Pro is a great app and I highly recommend it.

RATING

4.5 out of 5

    Please update your review to indicate that BBSmart Alarms Pro is NOT compatible with the Bold. I’m not too sure about the Storm either but I don’t own one and therefore cannot confirm that. Dozens of threads on various forums online indicate customers annoyance with this issue. The developers have been promising for months that the software would be updated to support the Bold however they have yet to follow through. Many people purchased this application because it is indeed a fantastic piece of software, however the delay in updating it is becoming rather lengthy. If you are a Bold user, please hold off of this application until otherwise indicated in forums. The developers own product page does NOT reflect the correct information for supported OS platforms.

    When I read the review today, the first thing I thought was “Wow, they updated it for OS 4.6+! I rushed to download it OTA and found… it still didn’t work. Then I realized that it was a review rather than a new release article… my bad but BBAlarmsPro definitely does not support OS 4.6.
