Winter Wake-Up Adjusts Your Alarm Clock Based On The Weather

iOS: Everyone loves the look of a sparkling fresh snow fall, but nobody likes scraping it off their car. Winter Wake-Up adjusts your alarm clock to compensate for bad weather so you can get to work on time.

We’re suckers for clever apps and this is a terribly clever one. Winter Wake-Up, an iOS alarm clock application, adjusts itself based on the weather conditions. If the weather stays clear, the alarm goes off at the regular time. If the weather is awful, it creeps your alarm clock forward accordingly to wake you earlier and get you into the office on time.

Winter Wake-Up is a free app, required iOS 4.0+.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    The time has come to get out of bed,
    since your car is not a sled.
    But it’s also time to say goodbye:
    It’s home that you must leave.
    Will you get there? Traffic’s bad you see.
    Why does the highway slow down.
    Can I get to work without crashing?
    I haven’t got a clue!

    Winter Wake-Up! Winter Wake-Up!
    Let’s finish our nightly rest!
    Winter Wake-Up! Winter Wake-Up!
    ‘Cause the roads are a snowy mess,
    ‘Cause the roads are a snowy mess!

    Sorry. I had to do it.
