    Default Galaxy Note 2: First thing I don't like.. The alarm clock

    Anyone have any suggestions for an alarm clock or a way to use the stock android clock? I love the UI in the note 2 better than the stock one. Stock you have to open the clock, tap the alarm area to leave "dock mode" and create the alarm. Samsung it pulls it right up. However, the Samsung clock, from what I can tell, has no option to turn off automatic snooze after a few minutes. You also cannot change the actual melody it plays to something loud and annoying. Yes, I'm a heavy sleeper. Any suggestions please let me know. Thanks. Sprint GN2.

    This is the one I've used for a long time. I used the paid version, but there is a free option.

    I think I am missing what your issue is with the standard alarm clock. When you create an alarm do you not have a "more" bar at the bottom of the screen that will give you options for volume, tone, and snooze? If you do, and are those options not what you're talking about?

    I have used myClock for a couple of years now. There's a free one and a paid version that is completely re-written.

    If he is like me, he didn't know he could scroll down. For the first few weeks, I hit "More" and see the volume, so I assumed that is the ONLY thing under More. I have no idea I could scroll down and see a whole freaking screen full of options.

    Wow! Another day, and more options I didn't know existed. Is there no end to the discoveries on this phone!

    That tripped me up too.

    Alarmdroid lets me shake or flip the phone for snooze. Does the default app have that somewhere as well by chance? (note, "shake" is set by default as "off" on alarmdroid, it can be changed in the settings to "snooze")

    The widget itself also can be scrolled. Scroll down for more alarm slots.

    That was my issues. I hit more and menu when I setting it up, never scrolled past volume. Those options I was looking for are still there just below volume after you hit more. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Alarm Clock Pro was mentioned above, I used that before on a phone that didn't allow custom tones and the alarm was too quiet. That's a good app.

    GentleAlarm is great. Love the options, particularly the fade in.

    Most nights I dock my phone and let it charge. Dock Clock is a great app for that, it starts when I apply power and it has options to let you really really dim the display.
    But the best thing is when it goes off I can say snooze. Don't even have to lift up my head, much less go groping for it

    I also use Gentle Alarm. Great program with lots of features.

    There are free and paid versions, but I'm not sure of the differences, since I got the paid version a few years ago when it was the Amazon FAOTD.

    It's like every other day I learn something new! People are starting to talk about Note 3 while I am still learning Note 2. Amazing!

    The default alarm lets you yell at it to snooze or quit. To enable that ability, go into s-voice settings and turn on "control apps." As someone who is definitely not a morning person, I find this to be quite cathartic.

    That's (truly) awesome! Not sure if my wife and kids would like it much though

    Gentle Alarm alone keeps me the stock App. My wife appreciaties it very much.

    Maybe I'm just a noob, but it seems to me that the "day of the week" is always set on the last day that I use the alarm. Say for example, I used the 7AM alarm on Monday, and I want to use it again on Wednesday, I can't just click the clock icon to enable that specific alarm because it'll set it for NEXT Monday. I have to go edit it, unclick M, then click W. Do I make sense? Lol.

    I consider myself a very tech-savy person, but this thing is just bugging the hell out of me......

    I see what you are saying Jenny. Uncheck "Every week." Or just click the alarm icon next to the alarm you made on the days you want to use it.

    I'm still having issues with mine. I turned off every option in the more section. Mine is still only going off for 15-30 seconds than auto snoozing for 1-2 minutes. There is no way to make the alarm play constantly until I physically get up and turn it off? Maybe an aftermarket alarm is needed.

    Thanks to who ever it was that pointed Out the scroll On 'More'
    That helped!
    Default tone put me into an even deeper sleep
    Missed an international flight......
    Seriously does that tone actually wake anyone?

    I don't use an alarm clock often but the past few days I haven't been feeling well and taking meds at night which knocks me out. So I setup an alarm using the stock app. On the Note 2 I use the Briefing alarm type. It gives me the time, weather, schedule and news. I can select if I want the weather, schedule or news.
