Version 1.0 (January 2021) for Android 6.0+


AlarmClock is a resizable analog clock widget that shows the next alarm.


Unlike most other clock widgets, AlarmClock does not consume battery when the screen is off. After turning on the screen, AlarmClock updates once a minute.
Up to three daily alarms can be set and reminders from the local Android calendar can be used. Alarms can be notified with sound and vibration.
For repeating notification: see ReAlert, all-in-1 notification.

AlarmClock will run on Android version 6.0 or later, on smartphone and tablet, and will ask the following permissions:

READ_CALENDAR: to get the upcoming reminder
ACCESSIBILITY_SERVICE: to prevent killing by OS (Pie+)
IGNORE_BATTERY_OPTIMIZATIONS: for a fast start at screen-on
WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: to play installed notification sounds


Place the widget and resize as desired. Adjust the dat size in the settings.
