OK, boys and girls, guys and dolls, it’s Friday, and that means it’s time to have some fun, courtesy of tongue planted firmly in cheek. Why? It’s Friday, and since I couldn’t find a Freebie app to match the occasion, I decided to go in the opposite direction.
I like a Mac alarm clock app exactly the way I like my women. Meaty and full featured. Built for comfort and utility, not speed and simplicity. Hey, there’s a reason Sophia Vergara and Taylor Swift can’t land a permanent guy. Not enough meat on the bones, folks. Simple math.
For Mac users in need of some utility meat on the bones there’s Alarm Clock Pro, which is not your ordinary wake-me-up-before-you-go-go clock app. This one has been around awhile and has packed on a few pounds, but in all the right places.
If the Swiss Army ever decided to equip their soldiers with a digital clock, it would be Alarm Clock Pro. The feature list is embarrassingly, mind-numbingly long, but surely there’s something in there for everyone.
It’s not just alarms. Any Mac alarm clock can set an alarm. Alarm Clock Pro attaches actions to the alarms. Play iTunes songs or playlists at a specific time.
Get email messages or text messages when things happen on your Mac. Wake the Mac from Sleep at a scheduled time (not as easy as it sounds). Create all the timers you need to ensure you’re fully awake and everything you needed to do is done just before the apocalypse arrives.
Yes, Virginia, there’s a built-in stopwatch, options to launch websites on a schedule, get all down and geeky on your bad self by using an alarm to launch a routine shell operation in the Unix part of OS X.
The list of what you can do with Alarm Clock Pro is extensive, including an option to take screenshots and have them emailed to yourself; a great way to monitor your Mac at home or the office, or just for snooping around and getting snapshots of the office hotties while they check themselves out in the Mac’s built-in iSight camera.
To sum it up in a less embarrassing way, Alarm Clock Pro is the Swiss Army Knife of timer utilities, faster than Taylor Swift dissing the latest guy, more powerful than a digital locomotive, able to execute an attached action in a single bound… it’s Alarm Clock Pro.
