The only way I can find my alarms is if I ask S Voice. Can someone please tell me another way? TIA
Use the app that simply called 'clock'. It's a white circle with a red second hand in the apps. It also opens up in the timer
Clock -> Alarm
Thanks hal1. should have been obvious. we can close this thread i guess.
Not really. I had to look around, especially since I was looking for an alarm, not a clock. I would like to find one like the HTC Sense, where it's a clock (with weather) but when you tap the clock it opens in to set alarms or a timer
Fancy Widgets. Looks just like the HTC Sense one and you can set whatever program to open by tapping different parts of the widget. Best of all, it's free. It's the one I use.
There's a couple of others but you have to pay. Like Beautiful Widgets, HD Widgets, etc.
[On HTC] I've gotten so used to tapping on the clock on the home screen to get the alarm, but not with the GS3 (it takes you to the weather). But yeah, you have to use the "Clock" app to get to the alarm.
And world clock, and stopwatch, and timer, and desk clock.
+1 for Beautiful Widgets
After setup, just tap the clock area and the clock app opens.
Also, just tap the date to open the calendar app!
I downloaded it. Is it suppose to open the alarm or clock when you tap on the clock portion? It doesnt seem to be doing it
Which did you download? Fancy Widgets? If so, it should open the clock, which does have the alarm in it. But I believe by default, you have to tap the hour. If you tap the minutes, it goes into the settings. Are you saying that nothing happens when you tap on it?
The cool thing about Fancy Widgets is that you can program it to open whatever app you want by tapping on the different parts of the widget. To set it up, go into Fancy Widgets settings, then to "advanced settings". There you can configure your tap settings for programs.
I picked up Gentle Alarm back when it was the Amazon Free App of the Day. It has a lot of options that took me quite awhile to figure out, but now it's the only alarm I use. I even have Beautiful Widgets set up to open the app when I touch the time.
Dunno' what I did. Working now, thanks
This part is hella cool. It allow you to save space for like 6 other apps on the screen.
You have an alarm widget where you can set 4 alarms and have them on your home.
+1 for Gentle Alarm. I did the same thing with Amazon. Used it ever since and love it. I do wish the S3 came with a nice clock for night viewing tho.
