    I've upgraded to the Droid Eris from a LG Envy. On my Envy, I could set pretty much any ringtone to be my alarm. On the basic clock that came with the droid, I can only choose from a few different "alarm" sounds.

    I generally wake up in a much better mood when the alarm is set to a song rather than alarm sound. Haven't had much luck searching "alarm clock" in the market. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    I use Gentle Alarm. It isnt a free app, but it's one of the best I found.

    If you create a directory called alarms on your SD card then any sound, song, etc you put in there should be selectable in the alarm clock. At least on the Droid. I assume the Eris is the same.

    If you download Handcent SMS (free from the market) it allows you to pick any song from your SD card as your alarm. Plus it's an awesome SMS app, extremely customizable and much better than the included messaging interface IMO.

    I use App Alarm Pro. It starts Pandora for me. I love how I can set different times for different days.

    I've been reading up on this today and it looks like this is the next app I'll be downloading.


    Thanks for the info. This is my first "smart phone" and I'm wondering how I was able to manage without one!

    Should be the same on the Eris. This is precisely what I did.

    Maybe I'm missing something but how does Handcent have anything to do with the alarm clock?

    It's a new option that just became available in Handcent's latest update. You can now assign your music as a ringtone to individuals when they text you so I guess Handcent figured they would give you the option when you set an alarm. I used it this morning, works perfectly.

    I want the ability to select a random song from a playlist or even my whole library. It's boring waking up to the same song every day :)

    I did this on my Droid and it worked great! Now I wake up to Everlong by the Foo Fighters, rather than that god awful rooster! Thanks for posting this tip!
