If you're anything like me then one alarm is never enough. In fact, sometimes I wish I had an alarm to remind me to set my alarm.
Well, if you're looking for a complete alarm system for your Palm that's a little more advanced than the default one you might want to give maClock a try. The program provides a highly visual way of staying on time and includes three simultaneously working programmable alarms.
The user interface looks like it belongs in the early Nineties - the digital clock font is embarrassingly retro, the calendar display is far to squashed up and the flashing battery power indicator is a bit of an eyesore. Thankfully, the old adage that beauty is only skin deep prevails here and you'll find plenty of tools in maClock to help you manage your time more effectively.
The alarms themselves are highly customizable: you can name each alarm, set the number of rings, add pauses and toggle light and lock on and off. The choice of alarm tones is pretty rich too, and includes old favorites like the Beverley Hills Cop theme, the Spy vs Spy music and La Cucaracha.
Preferences abound in this program and besides just setting alarms you can display the Internet time, switch from two default time zone displays and view the current areas of daytime and nighttime on a world map.
If you can stomach the rather crude interface design, you'll find maClock a useful way of keeping track of the time.
