HOLIDAY SALE - Get Nightstand Central for 50% off for the rest of 2010!
I just wanted to share a really cool app I wrote with you guys, Nightstand Central. It's available for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
Selected as an Apple Staff Favorite App - May 2010!
With music alarms, a built-in sleep timer, weather info, customizable photo backgrounds, and even an included shake-on / shake-off flashlight, Nightstand Central turns your iPhone or iPod touch into the ultimate alarm clock replacement.
Wake up to your favorite tunes and drift into sleep a little easier with an included sleep timer that lets you play everything from music playlists to relaxing sounds to audio books or podcasts. If you need to get up in the middle of the night, just shake to toggle the included flashlight, and shake again to turn it off. And when you wake up, see the current weather conditions before you even get out of bed.
Nightstand Central is equally at home away from the bedside, as well. Set your iDevice on your desk or coffee table and use it as a beautiful photo frame with heads-up time and weather information. It's the perfect use for an older iPhone or iPod touch that doesn't see as much action as it used to, as well!
Almost everything about Nightstand Central can be tweaked to fit your personality, for example:
-Pick wallpapers from your Photo Album and Nightstand Central will automatically cycle the background image among these how ever often you'd like. You can mix and match your own photos and any of the gorgeous included wallpapers, as well.
-Set up different music alarm playlists for different days. You can even make your alarm gently fade in or vibrate - it's all up to you.
-Configure the clock / weather HUD to make it bigger, smaller, centered, or move it off to one side or the other, whatever suits your fancy
Throw away your boring, standalone alarm clock, and replace it with your iPhone or iPod touch and Nightstand Central.
