The alarm function is a very good point. And a very very important function. If the alarm is unreliable you can miss your train, your wedding, get fired because you are late to work and then you die because you forgot to take your medicine.
I have never seen I mobile device with a 100% reliable alarm function! Not my 20y old cellphone. Not my first smartphone with Win CE and none of my two Android phones. Some of them do ring the alarm most of the time but simply not always. Such things can be a pleasure to debug. cough And then you wake up late and asking yourself if you just didn’t hear it because you slept so deep or if it just did not ring in the first place. This week I watched coincidentally the alarm going on for half a second, making almost no noise, and then stopping!
This function is used by many users and is important as I stated abhove and hard to be implemented with reliability. That’s why I encourage everyone to try it out and have a look at it and help to get it done right. At least with bug reports.
