Timy Alarm Clock: An App To Help You Get Up With Fun

Timy Alarm Clock: An App To Help You Get Up With Fun

Am I right in guessing that your smartphone doubles as your alarm clock? And that you use the stock alarm application that comes with your smartphone? While that trusty built-in feature works fine for now, there might come a time when you want something with a little more flare.

When that happens, take a look at the free Android app called “Timy Alarm Clock” (unfortunately, it’s not on the iPhone’s App Store). This clever alarm clock app might seem pretty basic at first glance. Indeed, it offers all of the basic features found in your phone’s stock alarm, such as a snooze button, the option to set multiple alarms, and the ability to play your own sounds and music. Its interface even looks remarkably similar to that of the iPhone’s clock application, which means it’ll be a breeze to use.

What sets Timy Alarm Clock apart from other options is that it forces you to be active right when you wake up. When your phone begins to blare at six in the morning, you can either choose to hit snooze (which lasts for 10 minutes), or you can play a little on-screen game to dismiss the alarm. That’s right, this alarm clock doubles as a game! What better way to start your morning?

Basically, all you have to do is “annoy” a cute little animal character that will appear on your screen next to the snooze button. You do this by pressing it in several key areas. It’s a simple game, to be sure, but also a nice way to ease yourself from a state of sleep to a state of semi-wakefulness. If you don’t play the game, you can’t dismiss the alarm (I suppose you can keep pressing snooze, but you’d probably find that to be a chore eventually)!

Are Timy Alarm Clock’s unique features tempting enough that you’d stop using your current alarm? Let me know in the comments!

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

Does technology have all the answers?

This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

Creating technological solutions transparently

This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

Technology as the connecting tool

Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

“Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
