Great app Would like to see the dismiss button the same size as the snooze button. The snooze side is too big. Pure and simple. No frills. Just what I was looking for.

Great app Great app. Easy to use. I use it every day. Helps me know how many minutes I have left each morning before I need to run out the door. Would like to see a stopwatch feature that counts up..... then it would be a perfect app.
