New Alarm Clock App for That Oft-Hated Moment of the Day

If there’s one thing you may hate but may not be able to live without (and no, I am not talking about your significant other), it is the alarm clock. Some people have an internal one and have the uncanny ability to wake up 5 minutes earlier than their alarm; others have one that sits across the room and is the equivalent of the entire cast of the 12 Days of Christmas parading around your room. Either way, you still have an alarm clock. I, personally, use my phone as mine, and it is set to give me the peaceful sounds of AC/DC’s Back in Black. To each his own, right?

Well, XDA Forum Member dalien26 has created Holo Alarm, Timer, Chrono, another app which follows Google’s Android Design Guidelines and presents a very nice interface and feature set for what can be a very cruel application. He put an alarm clock, timer, world clock, and chronograph into one handy application for Android 3.x and above with the following features for each:

Alarm
-multiple Alarm
-select days of alarm
-select any music on your phone / sdcard

preferences

General
-set alarm name
-Alarm in silent mode
-progressive volume
-set progressive time
-independent volume
-set volume max ( for independent volume )

Snooze
-Shake to snooze
-Set snooze time

Dismiss
-Shake to dismiss

Timer
-simple timer
-predefined values

Chrono
-simple Chrono
-lap time

World Clock
-Multiple Clock

Now I will warn you that the “Shake to dismiss” feature does not mean that you throw the phone across the room in anger to shut off the alarm. That would be simply unwise, however satisfying at the moment. Visit the application thread for more information and to keep up with the updates, and make sure to set your alarm.

Beats Music No Longer Accepting New Accounts

Whenever Apple launches a new product or service, it definitely manages to grab the attention of all. Whether you love the company and or its products, or you hate it, there's no denying that Apple does make more people interested in things, old or new. When the company announced Apple Music, it directly took aim at the user base of iTunes which had migrated to the streaming convenience of Spotify and later, Google Play Music. In order to further bolster...
