    I was wondering if there was an alarm app for the r4. There isn't an alarm for the 3DS, and I need an alarm. Are there any alarms that run in DS mode out there? I tried searching and got nothing.
    Thanks in advance.

    Aren't there alarm clocks that you can by from the e-store? I remember my brother had this annoying Mario clock on his that he used to wake up in the morning.

    I read about that, but I don't want to spend money to buy one.

    I forgot
    It wouldn't be that hard to make one...I wonder...I'll see what I can do, it'll probably be the most basic thing ever but hey, it works. Maybe.

    Doesn't leaving your DS on for an alarm kill battery anyhow?

    Right behind you
    Like Luigi says, an alarm for ds would seem sort of pointless because it would always have to be running on your ds. Surely you can set an alarm on any number of other things.

    well for me the battery lasted longer with the ds's built in alarm (ds lites not 3ds's)
    @mysticwaterfall i didn't say it was pointless.

    Couldn't you just leave it on charge at night, or when you are asleep?

    I thought that didn't work on the 3DS.

    Plenty of people have mentioned using firmware.nds for Pictochat, so I assume the alarm clock would also be functional.

    No, I meant that you can't get past the "Shut off the system to complete setup" screen, because it doesn't save.
    Am I wrong?

    But the alarm clock settings screen lets you start the alarm clock with the specified settings, without having to turn off to save the settings.

    I never noticed an ability to use the alarm clock without saving the settings at the start. :O

    Do you not have a cellphone? o.o
    3DS' aren't exactly designed with alarm functionality in mind.. speakers aren't exposed when shut, battery is good but not great etc.

    Believe it or not, there are a lot of people who don't have cell-phone things.
