AlarmDroid is a typical alarm with a new and useful feature
AlarmDroid is an alarm clock app which is really easy to use. You just need to tap on the + icon to add a new alarm by writing the name, the type of alarm (countdown, time, date and time), snooze time, repeating settings, ring tones, speaking clock and so on. Ring tones can be radio stations, so you can wake up with the sound of your favorite morning program.
Besides the typical snooze system, AlarmDroid adds a special feature called flip'n'snooze, which allows you to turn the snooze mode on by turning over the phone, which can be really useful as often you don't really feel like opening your eyes for tapping on the right button.
Of course, as any similar application, AlarmDroid can be installed as a widget for your homescreen, so you can have access to it more directly and always visualize it. It was created by Fabian Lueghausen, creator of other useful tools for Android users. Good alarm, many settings and including a really useful new feature.
AlarmDroid's special feature is called flip'n'snooze: simply turn over your phone to get into snooze mode, without the need to seek the snooze button on the screen.
Other features are the speaking clock that can tell you the time, the day, and even the weather. Or the possibility to use internet radio streams.
AlarmDroid is supported by ads. To remove the ads, please consider purchasing the "AlarmDroid Pro extension" app.

It costs a lot of time/money to develop and improve AlarmDroid. And to answer the tons of emails I get every day. Therefore, any support (particulary financial support) is very appriciated. For more details, see
* Upgraded to the new Google AdMob SDK
*** Major upgrades planned for Q4 2014 ***
This morning I shaked the phone for snooze 5 minutes on my desire HD. It never rang again, it was hanging, so I missed my Morning meeting, haha, thats not really realiable!
Alarm often doesn't ring out some mornings, slept in again this morning!!!!
Freezes and crashes almost every time I open it. Sometimes the alarms won't go off. It used to work great......now I may need to find a new alarm app :'(
But lately it's been crashing a lot. Every time an alarm goes off there is a big chance that my phone will freeze with the alarm sounding, I'll not be able to turn it off so I'll have to reboot the phone... This is not a fun way to start the day. Hope this gets fixed since this app used to be great.
