App of the Week: Alarm Clock Plus

Why we love Alarm Clock Plus:

Alarm Clock Plus is an app that will help you spring out of bed, bright eyed and bushy tailed. Either that or it’s the type of app that’ll make you throw your phone at the wall after the fourth time you fail to answer the math question that’s required to turn off the alarm.

Either way, you’re awake and ready to face the day. Whether it’s an expensive morning or not? Well, that’s determined by your arithmetical abilities… and perhaps your personal rage quotient (PRQ).

Set an alarm to wake you up in the morning. Turn on nightstand mode to dim the display. At the appointed time, your alarm will sound. No biggie, right? Well, there’s more to it.

Alarm Clock Plus lets you completely customize your alarms and take control of myriad options to create the perfect wakeup call. Most notable: Require a correct answer to a mathematical question (difficulty determined by you) before the alarm will turn off. Or, if you’re feeling particularly masochistic, before the alarm will even let you snooze.

Wherever you are, Wifi Analyzer for Android helps you find the best Wi-Fi connection.

Wifi Analyzer is also great if you’re troubleshooting a chronically slow Wi-Fi connection at home.

Wifi Analyzer can suggest the least densely populated Wi-Fi channel so you can get your router out of the fray.

As much as the Internet has become commonplace and we rely on it every day, surfing, shopping and sharing online can expose us to digital threats, hackers and identity theft.

Hack your phone plan: A smartphone plan under $20

With Ting Mobile, the $16 phone bill is within reach. If you’re smart about how you use your phone (and smart about choosing a cell phone service) your phone bill doesn’t need to come with a side of sticker shock. Whether you love iPhone or whether you’re in the Android camp, following are some easy ways to take complete control of your phone bill.

This phone hack works due to Ting’s flexible pricing model where you pay for minutes, messages and mobile data separately. With this “a la carte” approach to pricing, you can use free and freely available services to meet all your smartphone needs without ever paying for a voice minute or a text message. Use Wi-Fi whenever it’s available and jump on mobile data when it’s not.
