    Alarm display

    Alarm handling is the single most annoying thing about the Touch.
    I wondered if there were any alternative Alarm Addons, or if a patch would be possible.

    Alarm comes on when it is meant to, plays music at the right configured volume.

    The problem:
    1. I have it set up to play random music. Sometimes tracks play that I have no idea who the artist or album are. Sometimes I want to rate the song that is playing. However, I can't look at the now playing screen or do any actions until I exit the alarm popup screen. It is not possible to do this without also stopping the music. If I stop the alarm music playback stops, I can only restart the track from the begining again.

    I just want a minimal impact to the Touch interface. I am quite capable of pressing the power button on a Slim Devices remote, or the power-off soft button on the Touch UI or Pause on the Now Playing screen.

    If someone could point me in the direction of the right area in source code, I would patch the behaviour to either not display the alarm question dialog at all, or provide another option to cancel the dialog and continue to the Now Playing window.

    The AlarmSnooze applet might be a good entry point:
