Alarm Clock Xtreme is packed with features to help you get out of bed an on your way. Each week, we’ll highlight a different feature in the app. Questions? Let us know in the comments!
One of my favorite features on Alarm Clock Xtreme is the ability to launch apps with the alarm. Personally, I like launching Pandora, but you can also launch weather apps or your todo list or… really any app on
the market Google Play or the Amazon App Store.
To set a specific app to launch, set an alarm, and select “Sound type” from the alarm settings:
Select “Launch application” at the bottom of the list.
You’ll get a warning screen, reminding you that this is a beta feature, but let’s press “OK” and continue on. Most apps require an Internet connection, so make sure 3G, 4G, or a wireless connection is available so that your app can work properly!
Scroll down to the app you want to launch; in this case, I’ll select Pandora. My “Set alarm” screen will now confirm that I’m launching an app and starting Pandora for my alarm.
Maybe you’d want to launch your calendar for the day, a punch card app for keeping tabs on how many hours you worked, or the messaging app so you can text to a friend at a certain time. The possibilities here are endless!
