The number one e-mail I get goes something along the lines of, “AppAlarm didn’t go off, wtf duuuude!?!?” and my first response is always “Do you use a taskkiller? Have you killed AppAlarm?” Needless to say, the answer is almost always, yes and yes. Now this is not so much the user’s fault as it is the taskkiller’s. None of them do a very good job in explaining how they work. So I wanted to make a couple of things clear.
So… episode6 needed a new look… badly, but I didn’t have the time to do it from scratch. So here we are. And it didn’t come out looking too shabby, if I do say so myself. The boards still look terrible but also still work, so feel free to post there if you have questions or problems.
The other reason I brought the site over here to wordpress is it’s a great place to post news, updates, tips, etc. So you might wanna subscribe to the RSS Feed, if you don’t use twitter or just want a more streamlined source of actual information (as opposed to just twitter babble).
AppAlarm is a new kind of alarm. In short, it gives you the power to turn any app into an alarm clock. I originally created this for use with Pandora and Slacker Radio, but it’s evolved into a fully functional way to schedule tasks.
Confirmed working with:
Slacker Radio, (turn on auto-resume in Slacker settings)
StreamFurious Pro (via Home Screen Shortcuts),
Stitcher Podcast Radio, (turn on “Play Favorites on Start” in Stitcher settings)
NYC Bus & Subway Maps offers something very simple, yet invaluable to both native and tourist alike. Complete offline access to the official MTA Subway and Bus Maps for all five boroughs of New York City. A return to it’s original no-frills design, NYC Bus & Subway Maps is an app you can count on working when you need it most. When you first launch the app, you won’t have any map’s available, but all you have to do is click the “Download Maps Now” button and select as many or as few as you want and download them all at once. No more hoping you remembered to save that BX Bus map when you’re already on the train!
Some of you may be wondering… “Hey, didn’t that app used to be called NYCM-” STOP! … that was a long time ago and we shant speak of it (more like we’ve been advised not to by hoards of lawyers).
– Multi-Touch pinch-to-zoom where supported, or double-tap to zoom in, tap the zoom-out button to zoom out
– Batch download multiple maps in the background
– Quick links to the MTA’s online route details
– Create custom home screen shortcuts to any map or quick-link
– Choose where to save you map tiles (defaults to SD Card)
Word of Mouth shows you a list of all the Third-Party apps installed on your device and lets you create and share a unique and short URL for each app. This link (which points to drdmkt.com) will open up the Android Market directly to the specified app, when it is accessed from the android browser. When accessed from a PC however, the link will forward to cyrket.com allowing the user to view the app description and comments. Cyrket also provides a barcode for each app which the user can scan to open the market to the specified app page. The current version of Word of Mouth also allows you select multiple apps at once and create one single link for all of them (example: http://drdmkt.com/4k_2_3_1).
