App to save events in calendar AND as alarm?

by Winterx9Wolf / November 20, 2015 4:30 PM PST

I have the galaxy s5 and the calendar app does not let you use ring tones for events, but rather 1-2 second duration sounds to notify you which is inconvenient for events i want to wake me up in the future. And the alarm app only let's you save wake up alarms for up to a week and no further. Example: event in one month to see dentist at 8AM. Calendar fails to wake me and alarm can't record past a week. So to the point, is there an app that can do both? Thanks!

It's called a cat. I hear dogs are pretty good about that too.

Sounds like it's time to scour the Google Play Store.

I find native apps to be OK but not as good as most replacements.

Your whole problem seems to be the brevity of the calendar alert sound. It's probably a wave file, such like *.wav, so open your Search and look for all wave files on the drive, or go to the folder the calendar program is in, or use the File Explorer. Find the particular short time wave file and replace it with a much longer one. Give the old wave file an added "old" on it's file name and give the new longer wave file the same name the old one had.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
