Here in the digital XDA newsroom, we spend our days pouring over an average of 2,500 news items and forum threads every 24 hours. Only the most timely and interesting bits survive the editing process, but the portal's front page still sees weekly counts in excess of 100 posts. This is a glut of content to absorb, especially if following the news cycle isn't your full-time job. However, the tech world is vast, and the information must flow. With this in mind, please...
Giveaway: 20 Licenses For WakeVoice, A Talking Alarm Clock
You’ve all got your Christmas gifts (if you celebrate it), but at least once the holiday season is over, you’ll have to get back to work, and that means getting up early in the morning. Sure, some of you may still have standalone alarm clocks, but many of you are probably using your smartphones to wake up. But instead of the barebones alarm clock included with Android, why not try out a more luxurious version, one that talks to you?
That’s WakeVoice. Developed by ADNFX Mobile, or really two young French people who work on Android development in their free time, it allows you to talk to your phone to stop or snooze the alarm, and once the ringging stops, the phone talks to you with the weather of the day, your agenda, news delivered via RSS, and more. For details, check out the dev’s description.
Best of all, as a sign of gratitute towards our forum members, who have helped with finding bugs and suggesting new features in the forum thread, the developer is giving away free WakeVoice licenses to 20 lucky members.
To enter in the giveaway, you must have a forum account, and either:
