Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
Alarm Clock Plus Xposed Module Supercharges Your Stock Android Clock
If you’re running a minimally modified, AOSP-derived custom ROM, chances are that you have a love-hate relationship with the stock KitKat alarm clock app. You may be a huge fan of the application’s clean and modern user interface, and fancy all of the clock app’s built-in features, but you’d be lying if you said that you didn’t hate it every morning when you give in to your sleep drive and hit that Snooze button.
Luckily, this is where the aftermarket development community comes in. XDA Forum Member MythosXe recently created an Xposed module that tweaks the stock Android clock to add quite a bit of added functionality. You know how every time you hit the Snooze button, you first have to check the time to make sure you won’t be too late by allowing yourself a few more minutes of sleep? This module aims to prevent this added expenditure of energy of having to actually look at the clock by instead verbally telling you anything you would like. You can set the module to say the time and a friendly wake up reminder every time you hit Snooze, and you can even set a separate message when dismissing the alarm.
If you’re a heavy sleeper and have a hard time waking up in the morning, you may want to give this tweak a try. You can get started by heading over to the module thread.
