Thank you for a nicely designed and useful app. I really love your "run again" mode!

I'm wondering if you would consider the following:

  • making it possible to set short alarm times with more accurate times (e.g. 5 second increments). Maybe you could add a "short alarm" mode with only 5 or 10 minutes around the wheel? And in landscape mode it should be possible to have 1 second increments, the same way you can adjust minutes one by one.

  • maybe you could add a button that allowed you to lock (and save) the active alarm? If you have one or two things you want to time often this could be useful (cooking eggs, for example). Or alternatively - some other system for saving a few favourite alarms.

  • I also think it would be nice if I by pressing on the active alarm (clicking on the time it will go off) could change this information to how long the alarm was set for in the first place. If I have three alarms running it is easier to separate them by how long I set them for, than when they will finish.

Kind regards,
Ivar O.

    Hi Ivar,

    When we designed 1TapAlarm our main goal was to build an app for day tasks, like I "I must go in 5 minutes" or "1 hour nap" ( that's mine ) and nothing involving seconds came to our minds. Do you fell the necessity to set seconds ? for which tasks ?

    Saving alarm was considered but we preferred not to add un necessary buttons to the main interface.

    The idea of showing the remaning time is a good idea!

    Thanks for the hints!
