Awaken Alarm Clock
Awaken Alarm Clock was my first application for Android smartphones. Awaken adds extra abilities to the built-in alarm clock, such as math and color challenges, shake-to-snooze, the ability to automatically call or text someone if you don't wake up, and more. There is a feature-limited, ad-supported free version, called Awaken Free. The full version is $2.99 in the Android Market. The free version is currently rated at 4 out of 5 stars and the full version at 4.5 out of 5.
As a college student, delivery pizza is an integral part of my diet. The new Domino's tracker is cool, but it doesn't work on smartphones, so I wrote this app for my own convenience. It tracks each phase of your order and alerts you at every step of the way. The app is available for $0.99 in the Android Market.
