After the iPhone and Windows Mobile, SPB Software is bringing its super-advanced time/alarm app SPB Time to the Symbian platform. Touted as an “advanced skinnable time toolbox,” the application comes with several handy features, including a realistic looking 3D model of the Earth in the “World Time” and the countdown screen with the sandglass.
Customization is also big with SPB Time with an option to select the clock appearance (digital or analog), hands, digits, alarm icons and background. Stopwatch, calendar and moon phases are also included in the mix.
However what I find most interesting is SPB Time’s alarm options. There are 3 different alarm type – classic, bio and paranoid alarms. The first one works like your regular, built-in alarm/clock app. Bio alarm wakes you up on the correct stage of your sleep by starting with the slight ticks and sounds of nature before the actual alarm time. Finally, Paranoid alarm is made for heavy sleepers who consider the regular alarm too weak to wake them up. In this mode the alarm suggests the sleeper to solve the puzzle and won’t stop until it’s done correctly. Love it!
