    Windows 10 Mobile Alarm app

    I was late for work this morning. My alarm clock did not go off this morning even though everything was set correctly. I even setup a test alarm and nothing. This all happened right after updating my Lumia 1520 to Windows 10 Mobile from Windows 8.1.
    Not a big deal because I still have my good old HTC One android phone as a backup alarm device but it would be nice if this little problem is sorted out ASAP.
    Anyone else having this issue? I already sent a feedback to MS. It's just a waiting game now.

    Well, it seems like this isn't a bug but rather a case of confusing app control feature. There is a switch that I thought is suppose to get rid of alarm notification but I didn't know that it also DISABLEs the alarm functionality. So, I turned it back on and the alarm works again.
