HotAlarmClock - Turn Your Computer into a Powerful Alarm Clock

Hledal jsem Alarm Clock, který by pokrýval v jediném programu celou škálu potřebných a užitečných funkcí a při tom aby jeho uživatelské prostředí příliš uživatele nezatěžovalo. Vyzkoušel jsem několik programů a nakonec se můj výběr ustálil na programu HotAlarmClock, který je m.j. sympatický nabídkou výběru mezi 27-mi variantami designu. Program není lokalizován, jeho on-line help je však dobře srozumitelný i bez znalosti jazyka - obsahuje krok-za-krokem postup aktivaci kterékoliv funkce. Zde je výčet funkcí s náznakem jejich využití:
- Use your PC to wake you up! 

Hot Alarm Clock is flexible and completely customizable. You can set a single daily wakeup or configure multiple complex alarms triggering on certain days of weeks, calendar days, weeks or months.  - Wakeup Wake Up to Your Favorite Tunes
Wake up to your favorite music! Supporting MP3, OGG, WAV, WMA, AIFF and FLAC formats, Hot Alarm Clock can play back individual tunes or some of the best tunes from your collection.
- Increasing Alarm
Computer alarm clock will adjust sound volume automatically before playing the tune regardless of your PC's current settings. Increasing volume alarms will start by playing quiet music, raising the volume slowly if you won't wake up.
- Turn Your PC into a Radio Clock
Set up Hot Alarm Clock to wake you up by tuning to an online radio station, and it'll turn into a perfect radio clock. 
- Advanced Alarm Settings
Hot Alarm Clock has everything you need to follow the time, no matter how complex your schedule is. You can set a one-time or recurring alarm, or use an arbitrary set of dates and times. 
- Countdown Timers
Hot Alarm Clock lets you set any time interval for countdown, including months or years. You can also create chains of timers. The built-in metronome will notify you about the oncoming end of countdown.
- Stopwatches
Stopwatches are used for counting time and can be handy for physical exercises, sporting events, cooking, and so on. You can customize the time display format and define the accuracy of counting the fractions of a second. 
- To-Do List
To-Do List is prioritized list of the tasks that you need to carry out. By keeping a To-Do List, you make sure that your tasks are written down all in one place so you don't forget anything important. And by prioritizing tasks, you plan the order in which you'll do them, so that you can tell what needs your immediate attention, and what you can leave until later.
- Skin Skinnable Interface
With 27 skins provided with Hot Alarm Clock, your main window, stopwatch, countdown timers and alarms can look as elegant or as flashy as you want.

Hot Alarm Clock can wake up your PC from sleep mode just before the alarm. It'll do its job waking you up, launching apps or opening your favorite Web sites. It can even put your computer back to sleep automatically!

With Hot Alarm Clock you can glance over the time in other cities by configuring additional clocks displaying the time in other time zones. If you're carrying a laptop with you, a single change of the current time zone will automatically update local time.
