On setting alarms

I'm curious if you use Siri to set alarms, or VoiceOver with the built in alarm application? Are these solutions satisfactory? The reason I'm asking is that I'm an app developer and have been thinking about voice commanded systems lately... Harri
Now that I have my iPhone five, I always set my alarms with Siri.. It is much faster than going into the clock ,app, tapping and doing a couple picker items. The other thing you have to do with Siri is be extremely clear and specific on what time you want to wake up. But overall, much faster!
I have an iPod Touch 4g, and no Siri. I have tried most, if not all, Siri like apps to set alarms, timers and reminders. While apps like Assistant do a decent job making reminders easy, I've yet to find anything that works easily and consistently to allow voice control of alarms and timers. I use Voice Over for these functions. If I could say "Set timer for 10 minutes" and know it would work, I'd buy the app.
