I know I can get to alarm setup through the Clock app, but I swear this used to be a separate app. How do you get directly to the Alarms app?

Quick look around shows that the Alarm function is most definitely part of the Clock app.


I know that with LauncherPro you can set up "actions" as shortcuts, rather than directly to apps. You might be able to create a shortcut directly to the Alarm app.

There are probably other apps out there that do this. I would be interested in the answer, as I have a similar gripe about all of the "sub apps" included with the Clock app.

    You can indeed do this on LauncherPro. Long-press the homescreen and go to Shortcuts. From there go to Activities and it'll be under Clock -> com.android.deskclock.AlarmClock

I set my alarms by tapping the Current Time on Beautiful Widgets. The "Beautiful Smaller Home Weather" widget takes up 4 slots on the home-screen but allows short-cuts to 3 actions: Set Alarms, Calendar, and Weather Forecast. The widget also lets you see the Current Time, Today's Date, and Current Weather with a glance at your home-screen.

Beautiful Widgets has a 4.5 star rating from 22k+ ratings. It costs ~$2 but I am not alone in saying that it is worth the price.


On my Droid X, there was an app preinstalled called "Alarm & Timer". That's what I've been using for alarms. Not sure if this is the same thing you are talking about though.

Which verison of the OS are you running? My Droid X is still on 2.1.

  • I'm running 2.2 unrooted on Droid v1. The "Alarm & Timer" app sounds familiar ... maybe it was removed in 2.2?

  • That's what I was thinking. I'll check my wifes Droid 2 when I get home and see if she has the Clock app instead of the Alarm & Timer. Sep 13, 2010 at 20:38
  • Just checked my wife's Droid 2 running 2.2 - she has the "Alarm & Timer" app. Sep 14, 2010 at 0:11
