Smarter Alarm and Car Locator are finalists!

Thanks to your votes, 2 of my apps won their respective categories in Verizon's Power Your App contest! Car Locator won the Lifestyle category and Smarter Alarm won the information category. There are cash prizes associated with each category winner so I'm quite happy now!

However, there is one more round of voting in the contest: Each category winner is pitted against each other and Verizon customers vote to pick the best overall application (based on rating). If you have the V CAST app store available on your Android device (i.e. if you have a Droid Incredible, LG Vortex, or Galaxy Tab), please download and vote for "Car Locator" and "Smarter Alarm". Thanks so much!

Smarter Alarm

Smarter Alarm is a better way to wake up every morning. Instead of hearing an annoying alarm, you.ll wake up to the soothing voice of a robotic British woman who will read personalized information to you. Would you like to know if you'll need to dress warmly today? How about the score to last night's NHL game? Smarter Alarm will read information that's important to you, such as weather, sports scores, stock prices, your Google calendar events, Facebook birthdays, and the morning's headline news.

Car Locator

Save your location when you park, and Car Locator will navigate you back. Annotate your location with notes and photos. You'll be navigated back to your car using radar, map, or split views. A parking timer even alerts you when you've been parked for too long and are in danger of getting a ticket. Save and retrieve multiple locations, and even send your location to another phone.
