'627 AM' wakes you up to a beautiful Metro day on Windows Phone

Although we don’t use our phone-as-an-alarm all to often, clearly many of you do, so it’s always nice to have options out there to entertain. Especially free options. Such is the case with ‘627 AM’ which is available now on the Windows Phone Marketplace.

The app is simple, clever but most importantly…simply gorgeous. It features the current temperature, weekly forecast, independent daily alarms and a to-do list all on a single, well designed screen.

627 AM's elegant design

Of course being free means the app is ad-supported which we understand. Having said that we would gladly throw down some dollars for this app as those ads distract from what is otherwise one of the most beautiful apps we’ve seen.

The feature list of ‘627 AM’ is short but sweet:

“627.AM is an attractive and intuitive daily assistant. It includes a wake-up alarm, as well as the daily temperature forecast, and the ability to create notes for the morning’s chores.Please note that the alarm works in the same way as the windows phone's built-in alarm, which has a non-configurable snooze interval of 9 minutes.”

The app has a great little walk-through when you first launch it and it is dead simple to navigate. For all of those reasons, we give it high praise and suggest you give it a go. Pick up ‘627 AM’ here in the Windows Phone Marketplace for free. Thanks, Blake C., for the heads up!
