Great program (v3) but unfortunately I won't be upgrading at the moment due to the change of licence and Leopard requirement. The developer should at least provide the latest v3 build under the old licence for those that don't need the feature bloat. Thanks for everything up to v3 though. :)

Not using iTunes has some drawbacks, but it has one big advantage: you can make it really reliable, which you can't using iTunes. This design decision has been taken in favor of reliability, as we believe this is the most important thing you want from an alarm clock. It might be possible to have AirTunes support in Aurora in the future, but I can't make any detailed promises right now.

good app, but it should play over airtunes like it used to..

(For those of you who are seeing Aurora here for the first time, I should explain: Aurora 4 came out yesterday, and the license was changed from donationware to shareware.)

I use this program every day, but I will never pay for the privilege of doing so. Judging from most of the comments here, it looks like many users agree with me on that. If the developer does not return to a free license, I just might end up writing an open-source version of this. I would much rather not have to spend that much time and effort for something that's already been written, but I will if I have to.

It would be great if the podcasts were updated then an alarm goes off.

Absolutely Amazingly Awesome. Standards we can all look up to.

Probably my favorite App. Works fabulously, gets me up every day for class in a much more pleasant way than my old alarm clock's harsh beeping.

Excellent alarm system; wakes me up for school every morning. Works well with G4 iBook other than the fact that it won't go off with the lid closed.

Best of the Alarm programs I've tried.
The price is just right.

great software
