WakeVoice: An Innovative Alarm Concept for Android

If you come from the world of Windows Mobile, you are probably aware of the unreliability of the stock alarm program present in most builds. To many, this was a definitive push to jump into Android, where alarms (even stock ones) work the way they are supposed to, and might get you out of your bed with the bitterness that waking up to an alarm clock usually involves.

XDA member ADNFX Mobile has come up with a new concept in alarm clocks for Android. According to the dev, this app offers many features like waking up to different voices, messages, music, among other things. However, the neat thing about it is that it will help you control the urge of throwing your clock against a wall due to not being able to hit the snooze button. The app has a voice recognition feature that allows you to silence the alarm just by talking to it. You can get this app directly from the market.

WakeVoice will quickly become your best friend when awakening. In fact, your alarm clock will never be as before. The fun, the joy and the pleasure will seem natural now in early morning. To obtain that, you can rely on many features including the innovative and particularly significant voice features. Indeed, via speech synthesis (tts), your alarm clock will speak to you. It will announce customize message, weather forecast and latest news. Furthermore, due to the enability of voice recognition, you will be able to stop the alarm clock directly from your bed without touching your phone and only by your voice. For instance, saying “STOP” when alarm is ringing will easily stop it. Adding services currently available (weather, news) and many more to come (horoscope, ephemeris, MP3 playlists, radio, calendar, night mode, and others) WakeVoice truly becomes the complete and ultimate alarm clock you lacked. A major addition will remain the high level of customization possible. Whether the number of alarms (unlimited), days of programming, chime, buzzer, the maximum number of snooze and much more, everything is fully customizable by your care! And little more is embodied by the skins and other unlockable bonus in the application via “Easter Egg” or specific actions.

You can find more information in the application thread.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
