Hot Alarm Clock goes far beyond the standard wake-up software tool and offers you a plethora of functions that allow you to set up alarms, timers, clocks, stopwatches, to-do lists, birthdays and other anniversaries, etc. Each entry is fully customizable, and you can add your favorite tune and your own comments to each of them, as well as whatever actions the alarm will perform when triggered.

Far from the tiny and barebones set-up windows that these alarm tools tend to offer, Hot Alarm Clock opens a fully-fledged user interface complete with icons, a ribbon menu, and all the settings you require to define your alarms and timers. Actually, such wide variety of settings and options and features may give some users the impression that the program makes what should be a fairly simple task complicated. You can use this program simply to set your wake-up calls and to remind you of your loved-ones’ birthdays, but that would be underusing a far more comprehensive utility.

The big difference with other similar tools is that everything (and I mean “everything”) can be personalized and customized to the last detail. Alarms can play your favorite tune or playlist, radio station, or a message read using text-to-speech technology; can have a label, an icon, a color, a summary, a list of associated actions, and belong to a group; you can turn on the volume of that tune or message, fade it in or out, and set the exact duration; alarms can be scheduled to go off at specific dates or periods of time, once or many times, recurrently or not, and so on and so forth. The possibilities are endless, and the same goes for the timers, the clocks, the stopwatches, or the birthdays. Birthdays, for instance, can have their own icon, notes, color, and group, and can trigger sophisticated reminders that may include a countdown timer in a floating window, can wake up your computer from the sleep mode if necessary, and give you heads-up two weeks earlier.

Hot Alarm Clock does make the most of your computer’s power to provide a truly comprehensive reminding tool, complete with to-do lists, alarm clocks, fully annotated warnings, and all those tasks and compromises that you just cannot afford to forget.
