[prMac.com] Amsterdam, Netherlands - DEVART has announced Calendar Alarm 2.01 for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch. Calendar Alarm is the only app in the app store that adds a loud and long sound to all existing calendar events. It offers a variety of eighteen sounds of different lengths so that the user is no longer committed to the two short standard calendar beeps. With its major update, the app that once was a great extra utility for the standard iPhone calendar has now become a complete calendar in its own right. With an alarm that can't be ignored.
Calendar Alarm 2.01 brings a day, week and month view, a button for quickly adding multiple alarms, and many more great features. It now also supports iPads with iOS 4.2 installed.
Calendar Alarm sets sounds and notifications according to the latest changes of the database. These notifications are local, so that it is possible to switch to another app or lock the screen and still get alerted. Internet access is not required.
Calendar Alarm sets its alarms automatically when it runs in the foreground. After editing events or adding new events to the calendar database, the Calendar Alarm app has to be started. The developers made things really easy by creating a day, week and month view, plus a lot of other features which are indispensable for a calendar. Their idea behind this is to make the Calendar Alarm app practical, user friendly and fast, so that users can stick to Calendar Alarm for all their calendar tasks in the future.
The app already contained a Repeat that rings every minute until the alarm is acknowledged, a Snooze with variable intervals and a list showing all upcoming alarms clearly marked. It was also possible to add new events to the calendar and to set customized alarms for birthdays. Calendar Alarm 2.01 brings a day, week and month view, a button for quickly adding multiple alarms, and many more great features.
To sum up the new features:
* Quick add and edit multiple alarms
* List with upcoming and overdue alarms
* Very practical day, week and month view
* Quick way to delete events
* Extra preset alarms
* Default options for new events
* Copy events
* Possibility to temporarily disable CalAlarm
* Search option

* Faster updating for multi task machines
Calendar Alarm now also supports iPads with iOS 4.2 installed. Since its release in September 2010, Calendar Alarm has got many positive reviews from users and reviewers, praising it for its functionality, speed and usability.
"Set up a reminder to go download Calendar Alarm and when the event pops up... don't hit snooze," Matt Briseno wrote on iPhoneFreakz. A recommendation that many users shared, reflected in the ranking as #2 paid app in several countries.
