The alarm app seems like singing ripe for innovation. There’s alarms and alerts for different reasons:
- Wake you up
- Remind you about something specific
- Remind you to leave
- Warn you about something
- Other things, of course
For wake up, the wake up time could be adjustable by a few minutes based on accelerometer data and light readings, or phone usage at night. What if it could be automatically changed to a silent alarm if someone is using the phone, so that don’t wake up someone else?
Then there are specific reminders like cooking timer alarms — why not speak these?
Reminders to leave would have their own sound.
Warnings, well, those shouldn’t silence-able.
While their might be these capabilities in third party apps, these are features that should be native to the device.
