# Can I change how long the alarm rings for?

I have an alarm set on my phone to encourage me to go to bed at a sensible time. The problem is that if I have left my phone somewhere or go to bed before this time the alarm keeps ringing for an inordinately long time, getting louder and louder, whereas I want it to simply shut up after a short period of time.

Is there any way to configure it to do this? Or any app that could be used to do this?

You can however browse the Window Phone Store, in a simple search for Alarm Clock the first result was an app which can be configured differently for each alarm (the link will take you to the US search, the results may vary though, according to your country, model, OS and provider).
