Introduction: Working with alarms in 1st Clock 4.0

1st Clock 4.0 features completely new alarm balloon notifications. Just look at it:

  • Instead of interrupting your work and displaying an alarm message in the center of your screen, 1st Clock 4.0 displays a smart notification balloon near the clock for 9 seconds. Click the balloon to have the alarm message displayed in a window. No action will make the alarm message gently blink on your Windows taskbar and you will be able to check it later at any time.

    You can customize how long alarm balloons should stay on the screen and even make them permanent, i.e. balloons do not hide, until you click them.
