User Testimonials

  • Thank you for your wonderful product, and especially for your support of Child's Play. I was not familiar with iRooster prior to this promotion, but you have added one very satisfied customer! - Dave
  • It's a bit cheesy to say, but I'm going to say it anyway...U the Man!!! - John
  • I wrote you a note when I bought the software first and said how much I have appreciated it but the update prompted me to write again. This is a small but very useful piece of software. For road warriors like me it gives me the opportunity to wake up - anywhere in the world with tunes I like. The joke that caught me is correct (it did turn my Titanium into an alarm clock) but it is also a wonderful touch of home. My windows friends are very jealous. - Jonathan

  • All around great app and COMPLETELY useful on all levels.. iRooster is one of those apps that makes you say "Ahh...now THIS is why I own a Mac." - The Apple Blog
