Smarter Alarm – Wake Up To Info Being Read To You
If you’re fed up with waking up to a blaring alarm sound every morning, why not try out XDA forum member edawerd‘s new application for Android.
Instead of noisy bleeping first thing in the morning, Smarter Alarm will read customisable information to you such as the morning’s weather, stock prices, headline news, sports scores, friends’ birthdays and more!
