iAlarm 2.0 adds podcast support, more

updated 10:35 am EST, Tue December 18, 2007

iAlarm 2.0 released today released a major update to iAlarm, adding podcast support alongside a new user interface and complete Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard compatibility. iAlarm is designed as an easy to use alarm application for Mac systems that wakes users up with iTunes music, local weather, news podcasts, custom messages, or a classic beep. iAlarm 2.0 runs natively on Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary, and features Alarm presets for quick selection of custom alarms. The software is available for free, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later with iTunes 3.0.x or newer.

"iAlarm prides itself on being one of the first and easiest to use alarm apps on the mac," said "When you wake up at 8:00 a.m. and you have selected NPR you will get the most up to date news summary available. [...] iAlarm will actually go out and grab the latest version of the podcast."

The new interface is simple to use, allowing advanced users to create custom AppleScripts for execution by iAlarm. The software can also wake a Mac from sleep to sound alerts.

Alarm options include repeated beeping, speaking a custom message aloud, announcing the current weather report for a specific area, podcast subscriptions, and executing AppleScripts for custom effects.
