Andoid 10 introduced new rules to avoid user interruption. One of the rules is that closed Apps can not show full screen alerts when the screen is ON. They can only show pop-up notifications. It’s very important to not change notification settings to make sure that the notification will pop-up for alarms.
The solution is “Backup & Restore” feature that you will find in menu and settings. In combination with Google Drive it takes two clicks:
1- Backup in the free version (or one phone).
2- Restore in the Plus version (or in the new phone).
Without Google Drive it will require more steps :
1- Backup in both versions (or phones).
2- Locate the database file (.db) as indicated in both phones.
3- Copy the .db file from the FREE app folder (or old phone) and paste it to replace the one in the PAID app folder (or new phone).
2- Restore in the PAID version (or new phone).
You can activate long click for Snooze and Dismiss buttons on alarms (Settings >> Advanced settings >> Long click to).
Unfortunately, yes. Some battery saving and antivirus apps prevent alarms from working so you need to change their settings to add our alarm clock and tasks apps to whitelist.
There are two possible reasons :
1- You have Android 10 or newer and you didn’t give the app permission to show notifications while in some cases full screen alarms can’t be shown (App closed and screen On). Please make sure to allow notifications from the App.
2- You may just left it with Home button. You can access it in “Recent apps” section. You can also open it through a notification that shows at every alarm.
The answer is no. Android phones don’t have a second battery like in old phones so when they are turned off, there is no electricity to run code. The good news is that Android phones use very small amount of energy in sleep mode (<2% per hour). You just need to avoid bad performing background apps that may drop your battery.
P.S: Some very rare Android phones may have a second small battery though.
It depends on your Android version. On newer Android version, you may need to give the app DND permission. You will get a notification about it when it happens. On other phones, you may just need to enable alarms in DND mode exceptons.
– “Network permission” for weather option.
– “Read/ Write external storage” for backup and restore options and reading audio files on alarms.
– “Read contacts permission” to use “import contacts” feature (Alarm Plus Millenium App).
– “Read phone state” to silence the alarm if you are in a call.
– “Modify system settings” to save the next alarm on system (to get it on any widget).
Flashlight App :
– “Use camera” permission required to use flash.
At first time, you may need to make real test by setting an alarm for few minutes later and turning the screen off. This way you will confirm that your system settings don’t prevent alarms from working. You need to do it one time only and if you install a new battery saving app or a system update in some cases.
You don’t have to buy it again. You will have to do the same processes as you did to buy it with the same Google Account. Before asking you to pay, the app will check if you already bought it and will remove ads without asking for payment in that case.
If your alarms go off late, it means that something is preventing them from working. It can be :
For security reasons, we don’t allow installs from internal memory. If you reinstall the paid app you need to do it from the appstore where you bought it.
