Snorelax Alarm Wakes You Earlier If Traffic Is Backed Up

iOS: If you’ve ever turned off your alarm in the morning only to learn later there’s a traffic jam or congestion that will make you late for work even though you got up in good time, Snorelax can help. The app uses current and historical traffic data to wake you up early enough to compensate for any travel delays.

We’ve discussed apps that wake you earlier if the weather is bad so you have the time you need to deal with traffic, but Snorelax takes the idea a step further. It also includes weather, but to predict delays, the app focuses on traffic, and how long your normal commute time will shift based on current traffic conditions. It also analyses real-time travel time when you’re actually commuting, so it can predict your usual travel time more accurately.

Once installed, just tell the app when you normally want to get up, and how long it takes you to get ready. Snorelax handles the rest. The app will then wake you up a little earlier if traffic is particularly bad, and then gives you insights on your route so you can see a backup before you leave home, choose an alternate route or check the weather in your area to determine if you should go in to the office at all.
