Tube Alarm Clock Android App - Wakes you up earlier when Tube Delayed

We all know that delays are one of the most common problems that Tube commuters face. There is of course the handy service updates box on the TfL website, which warns you in advance, so you can leave early or take a different route, but in order to check it before you go to work, you would have to get up early every day, even when there are no delays. So wouldn't it be great if you could get an alarm alert only when there are delays without having to check by hand?

Now there's an app for that and for once not an iPhone or iPad is needed! Here's how the developer describes it: "Underground Alarm is an alarm clock for users of the London Underground (including Overground and DLR). In addition to standard alarm clock features, it can be set to automatically wake you up earlier when there are disruptions on any of the lines you use to get to your destination."

It's a nice and simple app that could make your morning commutes a bit less stressful. There's also a nice little feature where the alarm message is read out like a speaking alarm clock.

It's free for Android phones and you can dowload the Underground Alarm Clock App here.
