Today my Android failed to wake me up. I know there was some problems with Apple iPhones, but I haven’t heard anything bad about Android alarm clock.
Android version 2.2.1, phone was plugged into charger, no vibrate, no any sound… I overslept…
From my previous experience of unresolved Android issues, I started to search for alarm clock problems in Android bugtracker for alarm… misses… unreliable… problem… skip… fail… Results are shocking – there are unresolved issues regarding skipped wakeup alarms beginning Oct 28, 2008… all issues full with comments from users experiencing the same / similar problems.
Here are some of issues with some comment citations:
Google has known about this issue for years. It’s mentioned under different entrys on alarm bugs, some of them verified and with high priority. But they havent found a way to fix it yet, or haven’t cared enough to try.
