MRKAlarm – Smarter Than The Average Alarm Clock
While its no secret that there are a multitude of alarm apps available on the market, some people, especially XDA members, like to have as many features as possible crammed into theirs. Our very own XDA Member malrok37 has added some pretty nifty features to his app.
It’s called MRKAlarm and as well as the features we would all expect to find in any alarm clock he has added some rather ingenious touches;
The option to define a period of time between the alarm being triggered and reverting to a state of silence.
The ability to sync with your google calendar. Handy if you have a day off or you work different shifts each day. Once your schedule is in your calendar and the app set up, it will know when you wish to be awoken and you no longer need to worry about resetting it.
The option to trigger the alarm when your battery runs low. Better to wake up too early than too late, right?
The app is free from the market and you can find the original release thread here.
