Not all of us can wake up at the right time without an alarm clock. Even though some researchers are against the practice of using phones as alarm clocks, most of us use mobile phones to set up alarms for variety of reasons.
I had been using my phone as alarm for some years until I came across an article about the downsides of using phone as alarm especially to wake up in the morning. Ever since that time, I started using the original alarm clock instead of phones.
A couple of days ago, a friend asked me to suggest a good alarm clock software for Windows operating system. As you likely know, alarm clock software is not present in Windows 7 and prior versions of Windows operating system. However, Windows 8 and above versions of Windows ship with a decent alarm clock app.
While there are hundreds of free alarm apps are available for popular mobile operating systems, it’s hard to come across a good alarm software for Windows. Yes, there are plenty of software available but most of them either offer basic features or try to install some adware programs on your PC.
