        Hello fellow Windows Platform Developers, 3 years have passed since this thread and sad to say but this has NOT been improved until now by the Windows Platform team, please refer to this similar thread requesting for an improved Alarm/Reminder APIs:
        http://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/110705-dev-platform/suggestions/6281055-need-improved-alarm-reminder-apis-in-wp8-1-run

        Windows Phone 8.1 is here but there is still no improved equivalent of the current (and old) Alarm/Reminder APIs in the Universal Windows Runtime. Let's put our all votes on that thread (instead of multiple threads) so that it can be officially acknowledged by the WPDev team. Thanks!

        also allow an external stream to be played as an alarm sound. Just make a capability for this and have the user decide if he/she wants to allow and use this functionality. Currently I have to add texts in my WP8 apps like: "Windows Phone limitation" which nobody likes to see.

        And open it to a user's media library and included alarm sounds. Or even use the users' default alert sound.
