If you’re anything like me, you’re busy constantly. Running too and fro, do this, do that, meet here, pick them up there, have lunch with friends at….oh NO WHAT TIME!?!?! Thankfully I found a simple remedy to a common problem. BBSmart Alarms Pro is a simple but very useful program packed with good, solid features, but isn’t overwhelming at all. Its simple, yet intuitive design is easy on the eyes, and not overbearing like some programs I’ve encountered.
When you first start, you are greeted with the area, where your “Regular Alarms” will be viewed, it’s here where you can also create “Quick alarms”. The quick alarms feature is a simple timer; you can set it from 1 minute, up to a maximum of 99 minutes.
Here we the section where you can create, and customize your “Regular Alarm”. You’re able to set your alarms name, time, and what days you want it active. This is where you can also set one of 11 colors to color code your alarm.
As you scroll down you come to even more customization features. The program comes preloaded with four sounds, and you are able to use your own from the device itself, or from your media card. The features for vibration while in alarm and to silence itself when taken out of the appropriate holster are very nice additions to the program.
All in all this is a worthwhile program for all my fellow blackberry addicts out there, with too much on there hands at once, and just let time slip by unnoticed.
Pros: Clean and useful UI, the quick alarms feature is really useful, well rounded, and very clean.
Cons: The preloaded sounds that came with the program are the only significant complaint I have actually. They are corny, irritating, but they will still grab your attention. The only other issue I had was with two of my themes only a portion of the quick alarm setup was viewable, though I was still able to tell what was there.
