Rethink Waking up with Alarm Clock Wise

Sometimes, some of the simplest concepts are the ones least likely to be re-imagined. However, they’re also occasionally the ones that can benefit most from some fresh ideas. In my own experience, I know that a lowly alarm clock is hardly enough to trick my brain into believing that it has had enough rest.

Thankfully, XDA Forum Member saqibvohra93 has crafted an alarm clock app that lets you customize practically everything. Designed for heavy sleepers, it allows you to wake up as violently (or as gently) as your heart desires. In the developer’s own words:

Alarm Clock Wise is fully featured, fully customizable, handy and most efficient Alarm Clock application in Google Play Store. Alarm Clock Wise has a very decent, elegant and sophisticated UI that attracts the user. Alarm Clock Wise is developed keeping in mind about heavy sleepers. Alarm Clock Wise wakes you up gently from light music or death metal if you are a heavy sleeper. Its barrier option ensures that your mind is not sleeping anymore.

None of us ever want to wake up when we’re not ready. However, there are things we can do to make it a little less unbearable, and this is a good start. To get started, head over to the original thread.

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea.
