Why doesn't Alarm Clock Extreme Free access my music?

Feb 11, 2016
I’ve been using Alarm Clock Extreme Free for sometime now without issues choosing a song to play. Now, however, when I click the "select music" button, it never stops "thinking". None of my music appears. I've even tried moving the song I want to the notification folder and the ringtone folder to no avail. The songs that I had set up prior still appear, but they also do not appear in the "select music" search.

It should take a quick look in the media database - too quick for you to notice. Try restarting the phone (or running media.Re.Scan) to rebuild the database. If that doesn't do it, uninstall the alarm, restart and reinstall the alarm. (I was using the same app for a long time, then recently updated to the "+ timer" version, and both still work correctly. (I back up old apps, so I reinstalled the older version to check.)

It'll only see ringtones, though, not all music. (It says "Ringtones" in the menu.)
