What alarm app is everyone using? I used Timely for years, but the dev hasn't updated it since 2018 and it doesn't work in 10.

I started using AMdroid, but it too doesn't work; the alarm won't display with the screen locked. I'm having to unlock my phone with one eye open, drag the tray down to access the persistent notification, and then tap to open the app to snooze or dismiss.

Obviously I'm aware of the stock Clock app.

My biggest reason for using a third party app is volume increase, additional options, and multiple devices.

i always use 2 alarm apps as a backup in case the 1st alarm app didnt go off.
i use Alarm Clock Xtreme, you can set a quick alarm like entering 10 minutes or 20 mintues. or preset it with 1 click to wake you in 30 minutes, etc

Google watch.
Stock app lacks increasing volume, ability to end a recurring alarm before it happens and "press button to end alarm" option.

You must have not used it in a while, because it had all of these things. The sync across multiple devices I cannot confirm, but the others features I use daily..

Ok you are right. Mostly. Still I have two dislikes with Samsung alarm.

1) only vibrates when phone is in silent mode. Found no option do disable this.
2) no option to skip the next alarm in a series. Miui asked to disable just the next alarm, when you turned off a alarm series like a weekly alarm.

I use DND on a schedule overnight and the Samsung app still plays sound if you set it up to, I would assume silent mode should have a similar option, but generally if you set a device to silent it is because you don't want the device to make any noise at all, it is basically a quick way to silence everything, so using DND is a better option.

as an alternative the google app is the best I've found as a simple alternative, more so now they have added google assistant to it so I can have it do stuff like bring the lights up with the alarm. also allows the phone to perform other tasks on alarm, it's the feature most missing from the stock Samsung clock.
