Justin asks: I have to work for long hours on my Macbook Pro and as a result most of the times I have to miss my other commitments. Is there a way I can set alarms on my Macbook Pro?
Over years most of us have grown immune to irritating sound of physical alarm clocks and mobile phones. What does solve our purpose are the alarm clocks on our laptop devices. Why? Because not only can you set the song of your choice as alarm tone but also set it at your convenience and if you are as lazy as me the latter will help a lot.
As far Justin’s question is concerned, yes you can set alarms on your Macbook Pro and Macbook devices. You can do it either with built in “iCal” utility or you can download a simple iTunes utility that would turn your Macbook Pro into a fully functional Alarm Clock.
The free iTunes utility comes by the name of iTunes alarm and is currently Version 2.1. It is a wonderful app that does everything and more than what a physical alarm clock could do. Once you set the alarm , it can put the computer to sleep and when its time , it will wake the computer first and then rouse you from your sleep with whatever music or radio station you choose. You can also change form one playlist to another to be played to wake you up
Other features of iTunes Alarm include:
- Unlimited number of nameable alarms
- Wakes the computer from sleep automatically
- Configurable snooze button
- Pick from any playlist – including folders, or ones that contain radio stations or, use the random feature to let the alarm choose for you.
- Sleep button makes falling asleep to music easy
- Use playlists on shared libraries, iPods, or CD’s
- Choose 12 or 24 hour time
You can download the free app from here.
