Bug Description

In the clock application, when setting an alarm I cannot figure out
why the alarm duration can only be set to large number of minutes.
It would be nice to set it at 30 seconds or, say, 1 minute by default
so that I will not disturb anybody in case I forget to bring
the phone. Imagine 10 minutes of alarm in a restaurant or
hotel room, or in a car park, in a public area...

In the Clock application -> display "Settings", the User can
set the alarm duration to values like 10 , 20 , 30 , and 60 minutes.
See the screenshot that I have joigned.

What I suggest:
that the user can enter in a dialog box, a value and
an indication of seconds/minutes.

I do not think this bug has to be forwarded to the wish-list.
I has its importance for the reasons I have already reported.
And I ve check that Android has this same lack of feature!
Can we make things normal and better ? Let's merit it!
And sorry to insist a little.
