Abstract/Artist Statement

The Commuter Alarm Clock is an Android app intended to make travel planning easier for those who have to commute to their destinations. One of the most difficult parts of long commutes is deciding when to begin traveling, and this app is meant to solve that problem. It works like most alarm apps: a main screen lists all alarms that the user has set, and an edit screen allows the user to set new alarms or edit existing ones. However, unlike other alarm apps, the Commuter Alarm Clock also allows the user to enter their starting location, their destination, their mode of travel, and the amount of time it takes them to get ready. The app uses this information, along with continual traffic updates from Google Maps, to determine when the alarm should go off and the user should begin getting ready to leave. This app will eliminate the stress of worrying about how traffic will affect travel time.
