    Why does it matter if it's a 3rd party app? There will probably be 2 or 3 free alarm apps at launch. Also, you can set alarms in the calendar.

    The beauty of 3rd party apps is that they compete with each other. You'll win..

    if there are a few 3rd party apps available for the alarm, im pretty sure there will be one that will really work best for you... opposed what you are tied down to use

    I believe one of the members here was working on one, I think it was seanblader. Come to think of it, I haven't seen much from him lately. Hmmm...maybe he got selected to be an early developer. That would be cool if true. He seemed to have thought through an alarm clock app for webOS pretty well, and had one running in html5, ready to make modifications for webOS.

    Edit: here's the original thread where Seanblader talks about his app: http://discussion.treocentral.com/pa...ats-crazy.html

    I can understand the OP frustration. I use my phone as my alarm clock as well, I sure hope that they have something available at launch.

    hmmmm? whats an alarm clock?

    you schedule something and set an alarm? or something like mobile clock (formerly bobs alarm), where you schedule something and set an alarm?

    i use mobile clock to remind me to go pick up the laundry.

    Cause you don't need to see "Wake Up!" on every single day of the calendar. lol.

    Why does this matter? When I had my Centro, this was exactly how I used it as an alarm clock. How does this detract from the daily calendar/appointment usage experience?

    Can you set different alerts and how long each alert will go for until you hit snooze or dismiss?

    That's exactly how I use it today on my 800w. Works fine for me. That said I can understand that a 3rd party Alarm clock might have additional functionality

    Honestly, I don't remember. My Centro got destroyed a few weeks back. But I set it once and forgot about it.

    Yeah I guess so. I see your point. If anything alarms with Tasks and the Calendar should suffice.

    SO DID MINE! I dropped it down our basement stairs. I am going NUTS without it. I decided not to get a replacement until the Pre comes out, but I am beginning to think I should just go get SOMETHING, then turn it in when the Pre is avaialble (since Sprint has the 30-day trial period).

    If I get G-Alarm for WebOS, I will rest easy.

    I've relied on BigClock 10yrs now (or, whenever it was initially released). I'll use what ever comes with the Pre, but will ditch it if/when BigClock is updated for WebOS. (Hmm, it may work fine in Classic mode.) It's been freeware from day 1, highly functionally and easy to configure and use.

    I'm interested in the rationale behind your statement. I can't imagine the default alarm clock being better than even the most basic of third-party offerings. It was one of the first apps to get replaced on my Centro.
