The official alarm app for Windows 10 is pretty decent for what it is, but not everyone will like it. If you’re one of those folks seeking a different experience, then how about visiting the Windows Store and search for an app that goes by the name, Realarm.
This app has been under beta testing for quite some time, but now it is fully available for public consumption so we urge folks looking for a third-party alternative to the Windows 10 alarm app to give Realarm a try. Seeing as this is also a UWP app, users can download it for their Windows 10 Mobile devices as well.
The following is what the developer had to say in a thread on Reddit:
Happy to announce that Realarm official has been updated to UWP. Since now, I will update only non-beta app, so if you are on Beta, I recommend you to switch. I will use new Store feature package flights, instead of Beta. That means registered users will receive updates first. It’s basically the same mechanism as Slow/Fast ring.
We won’t be ditching the official Windows 10 alarm app any time soon, but we have to say, Realarm is not half bad. The user interface is great and it does what it sets out to do. The features surpass that of the official Windows 10 app, though we doubt most folks would want all the bells and whistles Realarm brings to the table.
Here is the list of features:
- Powerful recurrence options
- Customizable voice commands
- Alternating sounds (Random sounds)
- Custom repeat period
- Hourly/Minutely recurrence
- Custom recurrence
- Backup & Restore
- Calendar preview of all (single) alarm occurrences
- Quick alarm
- Beautiful live tile
Microsoft in the past updated the Windows 10 alarm app with custom alert options and the ability for it to vibrate your device. Furthermore, if your alarm sound is not working in Windows 10, we have a simple fix to set it straight.
Download Realarm right here from the Windows Store.
