I just got my first Android phone, Motorola Milestone, for a week and am having great fun with it! But the Alarm Clock keeps on bugging me as the Alarm Clock doesn’t ring at all, and I was using my trusty old Nokia phone as my alarm till today.
Finally i have time to do some research, and found out how sometimes too much control over your phone is bad (if not done properly). My problem was the Advanced Task Killer which I have installed onto my Milestone on day one itself, and I have been using it to kill off all the apps to save power & memory. Android allows us to so much control, that we sometimes forget that some of the apps still need to be run on the background, and Alarm Clock is one of them.
So, for those of you who face the same problem, and uses the Advanced Task Killer (or any other task killer), the fix is rather simple and should be valid for all alarm clock apps, not just the default ones. All you need is to do is include the Alarm Clock in the ignore list by performing the steps below:
- Open Alarm Clock
- Go back to home
- Open Advanced Task Killer
- Long press on Alarm Clock
- Click on Ignore to add Alarm Clock to the ignore list
- (you can manage the ignore list by going to the menu -> Setting -> ignore list)
Good luck, have fun, and let me know if this works for you!

… in the US at least according to Admob. But it can happen as soon as next month if Android’s adoption continues at this pace.
Admob’s Mobile Metrics Report sees a predictable continuation of Android’s “full steam ahead”, especially after the massive success of Motorola Droid in the US. But fear not Apple fans, iPhone is still very far ahead in terms of the world wide OS traffic share by ~30%!
It seems that Android is eating away the other phone OS’s traffic share, especially Symbian in the world arena. Now it’s a question of how long Nokia can maintain their dominance in the world mobile market as more people are switching to smart phones, and they are losing their piece of their pie FAST.
Now i am wondering whether Apple’s new iPhone due in Jun / July this year will help save their dwindling market share or it will be somewhat a flop like iPad. I am predicting a lot of hype and a flop. That’s my take.

Summary: iPhone wins. Followed by phones from HTC.
You can take a look at the video below on how they do it.
In the end, i must say that Apple does make elegant products. I have always been a true believer that you need all the correct elements to make something work perfectly. And having control over the hardware and software sure helps a lot! That’s my take.
