    I am a new Treo 600 user. I am looking for a program that will act as an alarm clock. I travel quite a bit and would like to use my treo as a backup alarm clock. Can anyone recommend some good programs that will provide me with my request?

    Worse comes to worse, use the calendar application. just make sure you put a name in for the event, or it will not take it. I used this method for years.

    You can download TreoBulter (Called Butler now I think) and it has two alarms that have plenty of configuration settings. Or look at BigCloock or BobsAlarm. Or my favorite, Palmary CLock for Treo600

    I vote for Bob's Alarm - lots of alarms, timers, et cetera. Palmary Clock had some problems at one time and still has problems on my Sprint Treo 600. Big Clock I was not overly impressed with. TreoClock - never tried it.

    Don't forget Butler..it does a whole lot more too. Try the demo first and see for your self.

    FWIW, I have a Sprint Treo600 and have no issues with Palmary Clock (on the past several versions), but it is a large file.

    I vote for Bob's Alarm as well.

    Bugme!, does alarms with a sticky pad to boot. Bugme! is huge (>800K) and getting lots of complaints for lack of support. I registered Bugme! years ago but it does far more than I need for its size.

    Diddlebug is similary to Bugme!, freeware, and only 137K.

    Both of these are found in one of the usual places (palmgear/handango/etc.).

    Bob's Alarm hands down. It can be as simple as an alarm clock where you have one or two alarms. Or you can have multiple alarms.

    I travel all the time, so it's nice having your own alarm clock. It has snooze and you don't need a stylus to do it.

    My bonus is the timer. I time my calls in the hotel so I don't go over 60 minutes. Some hotels charge for toll free calls that last over 60 minutes.

    That's a bold statement...
    You have paper work and stats to prove it (jetski joke)
    Yes, Bob is quite popular.

    Also, I didn't know that Diddlebug and Bug me have alarms...I learn something new every day.

    Dang..I love message boards, yuou can learn so much

    BugMe's alarm is nice for reminders but I have found that it doesn't work right when I have it installed on the card.

    I use Bob's Alarm also. I have a couple of alarms that go off every day plus right now I'm using the timer function because the buzzer on my dryer is broken.

    Guys,

    I've tried them all (Bob's Alarm, MutiClock, etc.) and I can tell you that BeeOntime 2.5 beats them all - NO contest . Excellent, alarms, LOUD, etc.

    Don't take my word for it, go to www.palmgear.com and give it a try:

    I think you'll agree that it is perfect for the Treo 600.

    I have Bob's - use it for a timer in my classroom. But I wind up using Butler to get me up every morning cause it uses mp3's as alarms, and it's nice waking up to some real music.

    Is Butler the only alarm that you can use MP3s with?

    As far as I know it is. And the funny thing is, the alarm feature in Butler was an afterthought.
