Why put an alarm on the MAC?

Obviously setting and setting an alarm on a Mac is not normal, since there are many other devices that can perform this action more effectively (for example, you can activate the alarm at bedtime or before bed on the iPhone).

But actually it's very useful, for anyone who works all day at the computer, and needs to be aware of an hour (or to take medicine, as a reminder of a call, among others).



Other than that, it works for anyone who doesn't own a phone or watch and doesn't really have the money to spend on buying it.

Wherever you see it, although it seems strange, the only advantages that the application brings that allows you to place the alarm, whose name is: iCal.

 

This it's basically a calendar app, where you can not only set alarms, but also dates and events that you have pending so that your computer remembers them.

This application is so comprehensive, that you permette also to share your calendar online, as well as giving you the ability to be able to subscribe to others to be aware of them and how you are (you can also protect my Mac calendar with a backup, so it's very complete).
