Classic app G-Alarm ported to Windows Phone 7

If you recall, G-Alarm was huge on Windows Mobile and now it has been ported to Windows Phone 7. Features of the Windows Phone 7 version include:

  • Monitoring your sleep cycle and Sleep Diary
  • Gentle wake-up modes
  • Access to Zune playlists
  • Task oriented sleep timers (math and maze puzzles so it's not so easy to get the extra five minutes of sleep)
  • Accelerometer interface to let you shake to snooze
  • Themed wallpapers.

We've only spent a little time with G-Alarm and it looks as if it has made the transition with flying colors. G-Alarm does have to be open for the app to work properly but it can run under the lock-screen. So, you'll need to make sure your Windows Phone is plugged in so it can last the night.

There is a trial version available for G-Alarm with the full version running $.99. You can find it here (opens in new tab) (opens Zune) at the Marketplace.

  • Can't wait for MS to let 3rd parties access some more background APIs, like the alarm API or w/e so these types of apps can just work regardless.
  • I would like to warn people about these alarm apps. I used another one and even though the phone is charging...it uses more power than the phone is getting and by the morning the phone was dead and took minutes of charging to even get the charging icon. Without backgroud multitasking these apps are at the best not practical and at the worse hazarous to your phone.
