Default Wanted! Alarm app with some extra features

Please Login to Remove!

I miss some features in the standard alarm app of the handheld software 4.0.2 of my 7730.

Could you recommend any alarm app to me which offers all or some of the features I list below?

What do I regard as useful? What do I miss?

* Showing the next alarm time on the start page, not only the icon that the alarm is activated

* Radiobutton for the choices "Once, every day, Mo-Fr, Sa-Su"

* Number of alarm tones: 1-20 (not only 1-3)
(Some need the hard way to be awoken ;)

* When it rings: every single key on the keyboard should work as "stop alarm". Nobody wants to search for a special key in the darkness.

Of course I post not only to get a recommendation but as well I'm interested in your opinion around the usability of the standard alarm app.

Ompul, I know of three alarm applications:

1- the default alarm.
2- MultiAlarm, commercial, Mobylo! MultiAlarm for BlackBerry - Mobylo!
3- MyAlarm - free, MyAlarm Application

I don't believe any of them have ALL your requirements, but so far the MyAlarm app has served my needs and is much more functional and customizable than the default alarm app.

I installed it - and get an error message.

It seems, that it does not work with the 7730 or an OS lower than 4.2.

Bad luck.

Oh yea. Your older model will limit some choices you have.
