Cuckoo : Alarm App

it’s a very simple and easy to use alarm app – with all the basic features such as creating/editing/deleting alarms, custom sound, etc. The UI looks very intuitive and cool. It’s really a great app for those who like apps with minimal features.

You can easily control the app from Unity launcher or indicator. Alarm management is also very easy as you can easily create/save alarm lists. Alarms can be toggled from the apps dashboard, creating alarm, editing existing one or deleting is just a matter of click.
