IfAlarm: Wakeup Alarms Set By Real World Conditions
March 3, 2012 in Weather
[prMac.com] Pauanui, New Zealand - Big Paua is pleased to announce IfAlarm for iPhone, available today for $1.99 on the App Store. IfAlarm takes the newest ideas in alarm clocks and goes a few steps further. Including standard sleep cycle monitoring, as well as monitoring weather conditions and sleep duration, alarms can be set not just by time but by a range of real world conditions.
Alarm clocks have come a long way. It's not uncommon for an alarm clock to analyse sleep cycles, waking from light sleep, or to keep a detailed sleep log. But there's one thing they all still have in common with old analogue alarms: a time is set, and rain or shine the alarm goes off then.
But sometimes one wants to (or has to) get up early, or should have but didn't. Sometimes the alarm goes off when told but sleeping longer would have been better. IfAlarm is the first ever alarm to set alarms not just by times but by real world conditions.
If Alarms are set like they're said:
* "If it's a beautiful day wake me at sunrise."
* "If I slept at least 6 hours wake me shortly after."
* "If it's been raining wake me around 7, otherwise wake me at 8."
* "If it's been snowing and it's a clear day wake me at sunrise, otherwise don't wake me at all."
IfAlarm keeps track of the details while asleep, and intelligently wakes up when asked, in plain English. Set alarms to wake early to avoid bad traffic, to go for a morning stroll, a dawn surf, to be the first on the mountain if there's fresh powder, or sleep in till the last minute if really needed.
