All the preferences are divided into four groups:
- System settings. System settings contain URL adress of the alarms storage and your phone unique identifier. This identifier is generated by the server. You should not enter or change it (only in case when you reinstall the application).
- Emergency settings. The emergency signal will run when normal signal fails (for some reason it didn't wake you). The emergency signal is the same for all the alarms. This settings allow you to choose emergency ringtone and a message that will be shown on a wake screen.
- Service settings. Service settings contain only refresh interval for the application background service (in minutes). After these intervals the application will try to connect to the server and load signals for enabled alarms.
- Twitter settings. These settings allow you to set defaul Twitter message and enable or disable posting alarm information (the signal song and singer). Information about the signal will be sent only if the total size of message does not exceed 160 characters.
