Why reinvent the wheel?

When I saw the title in my RSS feed I thought was going to be about Alarm Clock 2.

It's really a great little program. It sits quietly in your menu bar, you can set up an alarm for daily or weekly routines or a one time reminder in a few seconds. It pulls from your iTunes playlist without needing to first launch iTunes, and can even wake your computer to trigger the alarm (note: this will not function if you closed the lid of your noebook).

If you are looking for a simple, yet robust alarm clock check out Alarm Clock 2. I'm sure you'll love it. BTW, it's FREE!

Because Alarm Clock 2 doesn't open iTunes. The method it uses to play music is not compatible with Airtunes over Airport Express units. Maybe I want to wake up the whole house. :P

How about iTunes Alarm? I like it and think it works wonderfully. Check out the link to the developer. http://www.johnnarun.com/itunes_alarm/
