iPhone App Idea: Voice Reminder Alarms

voice alert app

If you're not a morning person, the prospect of setting your alarm for an earlier time than routine is dreadful, because your body is accustomed to its routine.

I don't know how your memory works in the wee hours of the morning, but I'm certainly not on my A game, or even my B game, and the thought of getting out of bed is daunting enough. That's why my memory is TERRIBLE in the early morning, and if I'm waking early for a reason, it would be nice to have a customized voice alarm as an instant reminder.

For example, instead of hearing chimebells, I could wake up to the sound of


Don't forget!!!! You need to post an early blog today!!!


Such a reminder would ensure that I didn't hit the snooze button and prompt me to action. It's more powerful than a written note or text reminder, because it's the first impression on my mind and there's no avoiding it.

If you know of such an App, feel free to let me know, and I'll write a review about it.

We created just this type of app.

Its called VoCal - Voice Reminders.

well, VoCal might be good if you got a connection to inter- or intranet all the time but living in a country where that is not the case makes it pretty useless...

Yes the app is designed to work as apple intended the iPhone to be. Always connected with an unlimited data tariff.

For those using unlocked phones or ones without data tariff, it is pretty pointless like you said.

This is a limitation of us not being able to run the iPhone software in the background.

Most users are giving us good feedback at present but thanks for your response.

We have a new app called A Reminder, it will allow you to text reminders and create/erase them from within the app!
