How many times have you been working on the computer, reading or even snoozing and your child or significant other calls for you to take care of an urgent matter? Okay, let's not even examine the meaning of "urgent" here! Nonetheless, you just can't drop what you are doing and hoof it over there-you really need a few extra minutes to finish your own task. In that case, you would definitely be wise to use a reliable, super quick alarm system to warn you when your allotted minutes are up. That's exactly what Nag-One Tap Alarm does for you! In fact, just one single tap of your Nag sets off an alarm that will in no uncertain terms tell you that your brief respite is up, and it's time to get moving! It makes no difference if your device is using another app at the time because Nag is always working to "nag" you in the background!

I wondered just how I could utilize this alarm the other day, and within minutes had my answer. The neighbor had requested (or, should I say ordered!) that I come see her newly decorated home. I really did not want to drop my writing just to run over there to see some new furniture and make the appropriate complimentary noises! So I set Nag for 7 minutes and continued writing feverishly until the alarm went off. At this point, I promptly set it for another 6 minutes. Yes, I did eventually make it to the neighbor's, but not before I had come to appreciate the ease and convenience of this very sleek and attractive one-purpose alarm.

Open Nag and you will see a polished chrome or nickel looking display with buttons depicting +5, +10, +20, +30, +1 hr and an on-the-hour button arranged in a circle. In the center of this is a Stop button. At the top of the display is where you will see the actual time displayed when your alarm will go off. When I set the alarm for 7 minutes, all I did was tap +5, then swipe twice to the right on the bar display to add 2 minutes. Nag immediately displayed the time I needed to be disturbed. Now, if you want to clear the time, simply tap Stop. If you want to set a specific amount of minutes (say 40) simply tap a combination of buttons. You could tap the +10 four times, or the +10 and +30 buttons one time each. If you don't stop the alarm, it will remind you every minute until you acknowledge it.

As far as the alert sound effects go, you may choose from Siren, Bell or Toot. You may also toggle on and off the number button sounds. The bottom line is that you need never be accused of ignoring your duties (pleasant or otherwise) when you have Nag-One Tap Alarm to remind you of them. This modernistic iPhone alarm utility will be the quickest and easiest tool you have ever used to just give yourself "a few more minutes", and really mean it too!
