In ye olde days, alarm clocks hadn’t existed and people rose with the sun and, sometimes, to the sounds of chickens in their backyards. Over the years, people have shifted their sleeping patterns around to match the world around them.
With so much to do and the internet readily available, people started sleeping later and waking up later. And, for those who lived that lifestyle but still had a job to get to in the morning, waking up could be a daily struggle.
If you need an alarm clock to get you up and out of bed in the morning, we’ve got one for you.
Equipped with a slick UI, Alarm Clock Ultra gives you a variety of ways to rouse you from sleep. This app, boasting itself to be the “only alarm clock you will ever need” has been developed by Appsdev and seems to have thought of everything.
Have you memorized where the Snooze or Dismiss buttons are on your phone so you can shut your alarm up without even lifting your head from your pillow? Then you’ll need an extra challenge in the form of the Puzzle to Snooze/Dismiss option. Click the balls of the color the app specifies or you’ll never be able to quiet the alarm.
If you need even more of a challenge, then solve a math problem. You can set its level of difficulty to the three options provided. Before you know it, your eyes will be fully open and your brain will be in working condition.
Don’t be fooled by its name. Alarm Clock Ultra is more than just an alarm app. It’s also got a timer and stopwatch. If you want to know if today will be sunny or cloudy, Alarm Clock Ultra can give you weather updates without you even needing to leave the app to check the weather channel. You’ll never have an excuse to showing up late at the office because of a surprise downpour.
You can also easily access your social media and news updates right from the app. Located above the clock is a news ticker that will make sure you’re never left out of the loop. If you want to read more updates, simply tap on the ticker and you can see your updates from your Facebook friends, the people you follow on Twitter, or the latest news from your RSS feeds. Alarm Clock Ultra also allows you to update your Facebook status or tweet right from the app.
Are you always working in the kitchen? If you don’t, would you like to start now? Alarm Clock Ultra also packs an Egg Timer that literally helps you cook eggs. This Egg Timer has built-in cooking times and instructions so you can start cooking breakfast for yourself, your friends, or your family.
If you want to catch a few Z’s during your short break, you can use the Quick Sleep Timer. But, if you want a peaceful night’s rest, Alarm Clock Ultra can also put you to bed. With its Ultra Sleep System, you can choose over 25 relaxing melodies and sounds to fall asleep to.
And, of course, for those of you who want to customize your phones and to enjoy being able to see the time and updates on their home screen, Alarm Clock Ultra gives you a variety of widgets to choose from.
Alarm Clock Ultra Free comes with the basic offering of the stop watch, timer, the Puzzle to Snooze/Dismiss function and the egg timer. If you want to enjoy the full Alarm Clock Ultra experience, you can purchase the app for US$2.99 from the Google Play Store.
