    I am trying to find an alarm clock to run on the treo that doesn't have a ton of features. i just want to punch in a time, and have it go off at that time. surely there is some program out there like that, but all i can find is AirClock and a couple others that do a bunch of stuff I don't care about

    any suggestions?

    i use bigclock. i even have one of my hard buttons set for it since i never use the notepad app. it also has other features, as you mention, that you might not need, but its not hard to just ignore them... bigclock opens to the page you left it at, so if you leave it on the alarm screen that's all you'll see unless you change it...

    And I wanted a big clock and date which I could assign via buttons-t to "push in jog rocker" for a quick reminder what day it is when writing a check.

    Searched palmgear. Got about 287 hits. They put all the freebies after the pay ones. Can't believe there's over 200 shareware clock programs (or maybe I can). Anyway, I settled on BigClock v2.83 and I think you'll like it too. It's alarm woke me up this morning.

    The main status screen on the kyo 6035 had date and time so that's why I think I missed it on the treo. I set BigClock as I explained above, and it suits me.

    ALARMING
    I think this is what you really want. It's easy, simple just punch in time. I've been using it for a few years now on several different devices. Oh and it's freeware.

    You can have the date displayed on your initial speeddial screen by assigning a button with "&date". Plus, you can still program this button to dial a number.

    forgot to mention bigclock is also free... alarming looks decent too, but in my case bigclock ain't broke so...

    BIGCLOCK BIGCLOCK BIGCLOCK!!!!

    I love it. It was one of the first programs I loaded onto my IIIx and while it has had basically no upgrades over the years, it is still a wonderful program. It does what you need, and nothing else. Fast, free and functional.

    Can you tell I'm a big Bigclock fan?

    I don't think he really wants a Big Clock, just a simple Alarm with minimum features. That's what "Alarming" is.
    Why do you even need a Big Clock? you have the time at the top of most every major screen, Speed Dial, Launcher, Call in Progress etc.

    i have bigclock set to one of my hard buttons, so if i just want the time, i press the notepad button, which i never used, and up comes the time in nice big letters that i can easily see with or without my glasses. (a sign of age i guess) also includes the date. plus it has a stop watch/timer that i have used occasionally.

    the 'why do we need it' issue can be applied to lots of this stuff. it's not 'need' as much as 'like' or 'want'!

    Hey! thanks for recommending Bigclock. I installed it and it works great as a clock. NICE AND BIG! However, I have not been able to find how to set an alarm with it yet. Any tips?

    Press the "Alarm" button at the bottom, tap the numbers to set a time, tap the box to the left so it has an X through it. That's it. There are menu options for more alarm preferences.

    hmmm.... the only thing I seem to be able to do with BigClock (oops, gotta watch the spelling) is hold the "phone" button down and a screen with the day of week, time in BIG letters, day/month/year pops up. There is no "alarm" button. Once I let go of the phone button BigClock is gone. I do not see BigClock in Hackmaster or in lazylauncher either.

    Do I have to delete the old version before installing the new version? How do I find and delete BigClock on the Treo? It seems to be well hidden.

    Actually I had installed ClockPop thinking it was BiGClock. Just loaded BigClock for real this time and it looks great! Thanks for the help! Would be nice if the alarm would vibrate when sound mode is off. Maybe the next version?
