Top 5 Creative iPhone Alarms

  • SpeakToSnooze Pro

SpeakToSnooze Pro

    Nominated Reason: Voice Control

    The ad for this app on iTunes boasts, “Control your alarm clock without EVER having to touch your phone or open your eyes!” I’m a lazy person, especially during winter mornings.  If I can stop that annoying alarm by speaking “Snooze alarm,” then I’m all for it.  With this app, you’ll be able to communicate with your phone, to either put the alarm on snooze or ask what time is simply by speaking to your phone.

    • Wake N Shake

    Wake N Shake

      Nominated Reason: You have to shake it to turn it OFF
      The only way to shut it off is by shaking the iPhone like crazy. No snooze button. You can’t lower the volume. It’s an alarm with no mercy.  Its a harsh but effective way to wake a person up. I can vouch that this app works after I installed it and showed up to work a half hour early the next day.

      • Mission Alarm Clock

      Mission Alarm Clock

        Nominated Reason: Complete Mission to OFF
        Think about it, your alarm clock is screaming and you reluctantly stretch your hand out of your warm blanket just to stop it and go back to sleep. It’s too easy and that’s probably why a lot of people are late or rushing out the door in the morning to get to work.  However, with this app, the only way to stop this screaming monster is to open your eyes and focus to complete missions like math and shake.

        • Sol: Sun Clock

        Sol: Sun Clock

          Nominated Reason: Best Travel Tool
          I am going to Thailand next week and this app can show the golden time to take photos outside and the location.  Not only is it a handy travel tool, but It also can be a portable alarm clock if you want to wake up when the sun rises to go for an early morning jog.

          • Rise Alarm Clock

          Rise Alarm Clock

            Nominated Reason: One Shake to ON/OFF
            There are multiple merits for this app, appreciated by Mashable, Fast Company Design, Lifehacker, TUAW, Business Insider, The Loop, App Advice and many more. However, it can be snoozed or turned off by only one shake of the iPhone from lock screen. It also has 3 beautiful large clock styles: Night mode / Skyscape / Transparent (Live camera) with other personalized functions. With 4.5 star with 2353 reviews, it’s well worth the purchase.

            Yocto Alarm Clock

              Nominated Reason: 70 Built-in Melodies
              As the old saying goes, the best way to ruin a song is to set it as alarm melody. I don’t want to ruin my iTunes music and you probably don’t either.  This app saves you from having to do that with 70 built-in melodies to wake you up properly.

                Nominated Reason: Geek’s Favor
                Both the icon and the description in iTunes are apparently advertising that this app would be the geeks’ favor. Even you’re not a so-called geek, the clear LED screen alone would make it worth downloading this app, especially if you have a hard time reading in the dark.

                                How to Make Private Browsing on Safari Truly Private

                                How to Make Private Browsing on Safari Truly Private

                                There comes a time when we may be searching online and don’t want the browser to remember our footsteps. The reasons don’t always have to be what we obviously think of as the main reason; for example, sometimes, you may not want Safari to remember your passwords or prompt you to enter your password when surfing the web.

                                Whatever the reason, we may think that we are totally in the clear with Private Browsing on Safari and the other browsers on a Mac. However, a quick Terminal command can bring up every website you’ve visited. How do you do this? Also, how do you clear your tracks for good? We will provide both answers and more today.

                                  What Does Private Browsing Do?

                                  When activated, Private Browsing on Safari prevents your browsing history from being kept in the history tab of the application. Along with this, it doesn’t autofill information that you have saved in the browser. In this mode, you essentially become incognito and any references of previous use is essentially hidden when you are in private mode.

                                  For example: if you are on Facebook or filling out a form and some information or your login is already filled in in the spaces provided, this is called autofill. It’s activated by simply clicking Safari next to the Apple symbol in the menubar and selecting Private Browsing, then clicking “OK” to the prompt.

                                  Advertising

                                  The reasons behind private mode differ for each individual. While we won’t go into all of those reasons, one thing that is  important to remember is that private browsing doesn’t forget the websites you visit. As we will see later on, Macs keep a second copy of the websites you visit in either mode. If you are in frantic mode looking for a solution to this, look no further.

                                  The Terminal Archive

                                  While Safari does a good job of keeping your search history out of prying eyes in the history tab, there is a less-than-obvious way to view a full list of visited websites on Mac. This is done in Terminal; the command-line emulator that allows you to make changes to your Mac.

                                  Terminal is located in the Utilities folder on your Mac. Once activated, simply add the command:

                                  dscacheutil -cachedump -entries Host

                                  Advertising

                                  Once you hit “enter”, a list of the visited sites appear. Showing only the domains, the sites appear in a format of:

                                  Key: h_name :(website domain)ipv4 :1

                                  However, there’s no need to fear—there is a way you can clear this information from Terminal with a command that’s just as simple.

                                  Clearing Your Tracks

                                  Just as simply as you were able to enter the command to view the websites, you can clear the cache that Terminal showed you with the comamnd:

                                  Advertising

                                  dscacheutil -flushcache

                                  As the command denotes, this literally “flushes” the domains from Terminal. This does not prevent the record from continuing to be recorded for future sites, however, so if that’s an issue for you, repeat this process regularly.

                                  Other Browsers and Private Browsing

                                  Other browsers have this form of privacy mode for their service. They promise many of the same things as Safari, but they do not have the same Terminal issue due to how this command only presents websites visited on Safari (the browser Macs come shipped with).

                                  If you use Firefox, you’ll notice that its private mode is also known as Private Browsing. Chrome calls private mode Incognito, while Internet Explorer refers to it as InPrivate Browsing. Opera is the newest to the scene, denoting it as Private Tab. Safari is the oldest well-known browser with this feature.

                                  Advertising

                                  As you can see, despite Private Browsing not being 100% private, Terminal allows for your browser to be. In what ways has Terminal helped your life or allowed you to become more productive? Let us know in the comments below.
