I'm currently using latest Simple Clock with Havoc 3.0 GSI (Android 10). Alarm only works when the screen is not locked, and in that case, only a heads-up notification appears. The screen which I need to swipe to dismiss the alarm never shows up regardless (although showing only a heads-up notification for alarms when screen is not locked is an intended behavior in Android 10).

I suspect the change in Android 10 which restricted starting activities from background might have caused the alarm to not work properly when the screen is locked.

This change also broke many other 3rd-party alarm apps, so consider this a feature request instead of a bug.

Can confirm the issue has indeed been fixed with 5.1. Thanks. :-)

By the way, when will this version be available on F-Droid? It's still 5.0.4 there, although I can obtain the 5.1 from GitHub Releases.

not sure, they are taking care of updating the apps themselves. I will wait a few more days then check if they have some compile errors there or what is happening.

Well F-Droid is still showing a old version for this app. User mentioned on the F-Droid forums why the version he downloaded from F-Droid was giving issues but not from Google Play Store.
