Is It Any Good?
The idea of a social alarm is new, and there are definitely applications where it could come in handy to not only set an alarm for someone else, but also see if they've acknowledged it. Galarm - Alarms and Reminders solidly performs its basic role to set off an alarm on your phone as scheduled and has all the features you'd expect in an alarm app. But you may never have considered a social alarm or how you would use one. You could remind kids to take their medicine, walk the dog, or start their homework. And while there are calendars that serve this purpose, having a shared alarm system makes it hard to miss or forget. The downsides are, of course, that everyone else needs to use the app, too, to make it useful in a social sense. So if it fits your family's needs, Galarm - Alarms and Reminders has a purpose and it rises to the occasion.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
