         Ever wanted an Alarm application that looks neat and does it’s job perfectly? Look no further, because this is it.  :D
         This is an Alarm application which utilizes the PSP's Hardware Capabilities, setting an Alarm that will wake up the PSP from either Sleep Mode or Powered Off (standby) mode. It is compatible with ALL PSP's including Slim & Light. 
   Since the early stages of this applications development, the main motive has been ease of use and a clean, appealing interface.   ::sm-12.gif::

Main Features:

+ Internet Time Synchronization with NIST Time Servers
+ Currently the only Alarm Application compatible with ALL PSP’s including PSP SLIM.
+ Sleep Mode Alarm with support for custom MP3 Audio file.
+ Power Off Mode Alarm that plays sound in XMB with support for Cutom Sound; Consumes virtually 0% POWER
+ 12/24 Hr Time Formats
+ Fully Compliant with DAY TIME PROTOCOL (RFC-867) with support for Daylight / Standard
+ More Accurate time keeping than XMB’s DNAS service, with Network Delay compensation; automatically adjusts for network delays of transmission from server.
+ Display's Hour's and Minutes remaining as the Alarm time is being set; updated in real time.
+ Alarm can be set up to 23 hours 59 minutes in future.
+ Alarm Accurate to the Second.
+ Streamlined, extremely easy to use interface.
+ Shows Seconds & Milliseconds;
+ Aligned Time Display (Constant Length).
+ Checks to make sure if an alarm was already set last time, if so, sets the alarm to that time.  Reads time from ms0:/seplugins/HAPoweroffSupport.305 if it exists.

Scheduled Release: August 20th

-> CORE: Internet time synchronization added. Edit config_hasuite.ini according to your         local region.
-> CORE: Power off Alarm NOW works on ALL FW's including 3.90+. (Cause: Changes made to scePower_service module since FW's 3.90+, one of the eventflag handling changed)
-> CORE: 24 Hour time system implemented as per users feedback! Keep 'em comin. You can choose between the two 12Hr/24Hr.
-> CORE: Added option to Toggle USB at any time; No more hassle of going back to XMB just for USB; Uses safe USB dismounting (no corrupt files or File System).
-> CORE: Alarm now also works in normal mode ie. even if PSP is not put to sleep or powered off (Best for PSP DOCKS / people who dedicate this application to their PSP's 24hrs).
-> CORE: In previous version, There was a 1% chance that unit woke up a minute after alarm time or not at all. Fixed. Now, 100% Probability that alarm wake up at all times.
-> CORE: Added Informative Message Dialogs for those not patient enough to read readme's carefully

-> CORE: Power off Alarm time if existed in(ms0:/seplugins/Hapowersupport.305) was read but hours weren't correctly read, if hours were less than 10 ex: 09 would become 12 or 00 based on time format. Fixed.
-> CORE: Alarm, when resuming from Sleep Mode, was off by 1 second. Fixed.
-> CORE: Now, you can't set the alarm if it’s invalid; this caused abnormal behaviour in previous version.

-> CORE: Now shows detailed version info during splash.
-> INTERAL: Massive code cleanup
-> INTERAL: Tighter (better) Memory management
-> INTERAL: Miscellaneous bug fixes

Current progress in adding a real analog display:

After an hour of photoshopping and half an hour coding;  the result is crude:

(http://img106.imageshack.us/img106/9227/developmentstatusjh6.png) (http://imageshack.us)

I might choose to drop it if I can't improve the graphics  :'(


Any IDEAS should I keep this or not?  ::sm-03::

Which format is the MP3?

Make sure bitrate is no more than 256Kbps.

 The audio sampling should be 44KHZ; else it will exactly sound like chipmunks  :-*

The analog display is fully functional with my current developmental build it's just graphics that need a lil' touch up  ::sm-15.gif::

-

Great suggestion. Added to my TO-DO list  ::sm-26.gif::

9) Custom Backgrounds; Ability to override internal image.

Thanks for the app. Its really nice but when I set it to off mode when it terns on it just terns on my psp and goes to my iR shell and there is no alarm sound, can I use it with my iR shell? or am I doing something wrong?  If I use sleep mode it works in the iR shell no problem. I also wish it would go off when I was in game or watching a movie, and if I set my psp to go to sleep when listening to music. For me it only works when I set it to sleep mode. I have 5.00m33-6 cfw with kernel 1.50 and iR shell 4.9 add on, am I doing something wrong?

Great app. I use it everyday and I'm hopping that someday it will replace my radio alarm clock.  here is a few of my wishes for this app. because I'm using a stand for my psp that recharge while in it on my night table this way I use it as a clock.

Improvements:

-custom font size
-skin unable
-Background image choices
-an image of the earth night and day on screen base on Universal Time line
-choices of music, click sound effect or stream web radio (wifi)
-a sleep button (press it and you get 30 min music or stream web radio)
-a snooze button if alarm is (sound effect, music or stream radio)
-background is screen saver mode with video effect or my choice of custom images.
-setup & memorize complex alarm setup like week days 7:30am week end 9:00am.

thanks
