    Main Interface

    GALARM 01 The main interface of G-Alarm allows you to set unlimited alarms. Different types of alarms can be set such as weekday alarms, quick alarms, and one time alarms. You can define a playlist for each alarm with your favorite music. MP3, WAV, and WMA files are supported. You can also force a particular volume if even if your device is on silent mode.

    Snooze Techniques

    GALARM Maze One of the most innovative features of the G-Alarm application is the ability to set an option which enables a maze that you must solve in order to snooze the alarm. This is a useful feature for those who find it difficult to wake up, as the only way to stop the alarm is to solve the maze. The maze involves guiding your ball through a path using the tilt sensor on your phone.

    For supported devices, light sensor support allows you to snooze the alarm by turning on a light.

    Today Screen Support

    GALARM 02 The G-Alarm application features a today screen plugin that allows you to configure, enable, or disable alarms from the main screen with a few selections. The application is touch optimized and requires only a finger to navigate.

    The application features a flight mode that allows you to save your battery by turning off the phone and automatically starting it for the next alarm. It features a talking clock for listening to the current time and also use this talking clock to execute applications at a particular time. Therefore, it also functions like a task scheduler.
