MRKAlarm – Smarter Than The Average Alarm Clock

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 aw

Screenshot_2012-01-24-16-51-28

When it was first unveiled on the Portal a few weeks ago, Fireplace Market had started to turn some heads. Many feel that there is a need for an innovative, third-party marketplace for root users. All of the applications in Fireplace Market require root access, and are designed for advanced users. At the time of the original article, Fireplace was still in the initial stages of development. Not anymore!

Fireplace Market 2.0 has hit beta phase and it’s open for public consumption. The developer, spxc and his team have taken this application to the next level, and have even opened up their submission page for applications to be added to the market here.

To enjoy this new market, you’ll need an Android d. . . READ ON »

Get Into the Christmas Spirit With This New WP7 Game

This holiday season, XDA Member varavut has developed a game for WP7 people to enjoy. Who knows, it could be your next holiday tradition!

The game is called Flying Santa and the premise is quite simple. You play as Santa Claus and deliver gifts to all the good girls and boys out there. Sounds boring? Oh, it gets better. While delivering gifts you must be on the lookout for the monster who’s out to steal Christmas gifts. When you find this not-really-the-Grinch-but-the-game-plan-is-similar creature, you must thwart their attempts to take the gifts those kids spent all year working hard at not being brats to earn (and that you worked hard to deliver!).

If you’d like to know more and check out some scree. . . READ ON »

HTC’s Likely Rezounding Disappointment

razr_rezound_nexus

I was thinking about the HTC Rezound today.  I do that sometimes–sit down and let my thoughts wander. I thought about its three-way fight within Verizon against the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Motorola Droid RAZR, and how it will fare this Christmas season.  I also thought about TrevE’s work on HTC’s astounding Carrier IQ screw-up. And I came up with a target market based on privacy and security to whom no manufacturer has managed to sell phones yet:  the hopeless-paranoid.

See, on one extreme, there’s the non-paranoid.  These people either think they have everything under control or don’t care if they have control.  They’re the ones who buy crappy phones on contract.  They hav. . . READ ON »
