So, I’m shopping around for something useful, something with a redeeming value, something with a cool icon, but also dirty cheap. I wonder if the Mac App Store will redeem soda pop cans. A Mac app that’s also useful is one that you can use to make your life better, or, at least keep you from going to jail because you missed showing up in court on time.
What Price Time, Your Honor?
My Mac app review budget for the month was almost completely exhausted until I ran across Mornings. It’s a clock. A timer. Those are useful, right?
Mornings is more than a clock or a timer for your Mac. It works with iTunes.
That means your $1,000 to $2,500 Mac has an opportunity to extend usefulness into the bedroom to awaken you before your court appointment, or before the parole office sends a squad car to check on you, or before the kids sprinkle your bed cover with Cap’n Crunch and let the dogs in.
In other words, your 99-cents actually gets you something that could be worth a whole lot more. Mornings is chock full of sugary goodness. Multiple ringers. Repeating alarms. Add your own sounds (I think there’s something to filter out grunting; I’ll check).
I’m not all that good at math, but I think there’s a feature per penny in Mornings. Or, a dime. It could be a dime. Or, a nickel.
Mornings will fade in your alarm so as not to make you jump through your BVDs and kiss ceiling paint when iTunes begins rocking’ Shania Twain’s Man, I Feel Like A Woman at full volume (you know you love that song, right?).
Beyond the traditional LCD mode in the image above, there’s a modern theme, and a couple of animated themes.
Even better, you can have multiple alarms going off at once.
And, yes Virginia, there is a snooze button on screen. You’ll just have to roll out of bed and click it. Or, throw something. Wait! Why not use the Apple Remote Control? That works, too. See? A nickel a feature.
