I wake up every workday to an alarm on my phone. This works pretty well, but the problem is that it also wakes me up on holidays when I have no work.

Is there an android alarm clock app that lets me select holidays to disable my alarm for?

  • I use an alarm clock (AlarmDroid) that lets me easily "skip" a single event. Wish it could do that automatically for holidays (or days with a specific keyword in a calendar event). Smart Alarm promises that, but it seems only for US holidays. AMdroid sounds like a good candidate for all countries; give it a try an report back :)

  • Oh, more candidates: Alarm Calendar Plus (incl. speaking clock, calendar events as trigger, & more); AndAlarm. None of them tried yet (would miss my spoken weather report from AlarmDroid) – but certainly sound promising. But that's the end of the list, no more candidates found :)

  • You can add holidays if you want manually on Smart Alarm.

I've just given Alarm Clock for Heavy Sleepers (formerly known as AMdroid) a try, and it seems to perfectly match your requirements:

AMdroid AMdroid holidays
AMdroid lets you define "off days" (source: Google Play; click images for larger variants)

As the screenshots show, you can define "off days" – days where an alarm should not fire. While you can do so manually, the app also lets you import public holidays: not only specific to your country, but even to your region. Apart from that, it offers a ton of additional features (some of which, such as weather, require the official Google Services to run on your device):

  • setup locations. Alarms won't fire if your outside those locations (requires Google Services)
  • alarm sound: chose between ringtone and your own MP3, or have AMdroid pick a random MP3 from your SD card (works without GServices)
  • one-time alarms and repeating ones (chose days or even complex schedules)
  • define profiles. Alarms can be assigned a profile (e.g. to honor location or holidays)
  • watches your sleep to chose a period of "shallow sleep" to wake you up (so you don't get up on the wrong side of bed; requires GServices)
  • Wear support
  • more and even more

I have not tested out all the features (the device I'm using it on has no "official Google Services", and there's no public holiday near currently), but it looks very convincing – as does a rating of 4.5+ at Google Play.
