Wake Up with AlarMe, the Weather-Based Alarm

A weather-based alarm is quite an interesting and practical innovation. It’s an idea you’ll most definitely appreciate if you’ve ever driven the car to work, only to be stuck in traffic for 20 minutes when you could have walked or ridden on a fine sunny day. It’s similarly useful when you wake up just to see snow blocking the driveway and the road, leaving you unable to get to where you need to go.

Well, since XDA Forum Member Mdk001 was growing increasingly frustrated with these situations, AlarMe was created. This is an alarm clock that, you’ve guessed it, bases itself on the weather of the day. In addition to the conventional method of creating your standard alarm with a time and description, AlarMe adds extra ‘Weather Rules’ for different weather and the subsequent time changes you would like to occur. This signature criteria allow for up to 2 different weather conditions, which you then set a different alarm time for.

With a clean Holo user interface, AlarMe presents itself with further options for customization such as 24 hours time view, imperial or metric temperature units, alarm and snooze duration, among many others. However, most importantly, AlarMe provides the choice of weather provider between Open Weather and Weather Underground, two well known and reliable sources of weather conditions. If however you did come across an issue regarding this, Mdk001 included a function which allows for the reporting of such problems. Nonetheless, we look forward to more flexibility and choice in terms of weather providers in the future.

A well-refined app with an active developer behind it and built on an interesting concept and idea, AlarMe may be an app you would like to try out. It is available for Android 2.2 and above, and is free and ad-free from the Play Store. For more information and discussion, check out the application thread.
