alarm/reminder tool


How does it work?

Simple: Set a time interval. Press Start to start the timer. When the time expires, the program will launch the specified file.



What can it start?


It can run ANY file in your computer. For example: documents, music, videos, images, user and system applications, antivirus, etc

For example you can load an MP3 file into the program. When the time expires the file will be loaded into the appropriate application. For example if you load an MP3, the Winamp will start to play that MP3 file.



Example of usage

  • Reminder - Write "Don't forget to buy milk" in a text file and load that file into the program (the yellow icon). Set the program to 50 minutes.
  • Check email every hour - You MUST check the email every 30 minutes but sometimes you forget. Set the program to start your email client every 30 minutes.
  • Wake up alarm - Choose a loud sound file (like an mp3 Rock song). Set the program to run it in one hour. Now go to sleep. You are really tired. The program will wake you 'gently'.
  • Scare your brother - Record a nasty audio message (a mp3/wave file for example) and instruct the program to play it when you are not home.
  • System maintenance - Run a disk defrag every 12 hours
