Default [App] [2.2+] AlarMe (formerly known as Smart Alarm) - Holo alarm with a twist

I had totally forgot to post this here...
Here's my latest app (after a 2 years pause.. I'm not a fulltime developer, nope), created off my own needs but I guess there's plenty of people out there that could make use of it

AlarMe is, indeed, an alarm, but it's also weather-based
Let me explain: if you, like me, would rather ride your bike to work instead of that boring car, at least when it's sunny, why would you wake up 15 minutes earlier than you should just because you have to account for the traffic jam you'd be stuck in if you were driving a 4 wheels vehicle or, worse, why should your alarm ring at the same time whether you had to take any mean of public tranportation instead of your own?

Another scenario: let's suppose you usually have to wake up at 7:30 to go to work, that's because your commute takes 15 minutes on a clear sky day
Your default alarm would ring, indeed, at 7:30 but today is a rainy day, and now your commute is up to, probably, twice the time.. and you're late for work


Enter AlarMe
You can now create personalized weather rules for each and every alarm
Default time could be the aforementioned 7:30 but then you'll add a rule that makes the alarm go off at 7:10 if it rains, 7:00 in case of storm, perhaps even 7:45 if it's sunny cause you'll just ride your awesome bike that zips through traffic!


Features:
- the alarm, of course
- up to 6 different weather rules: clear, foggy, cloudy, stormy, rainy, snowy
- full holo UI with a flippable cards layout for the alarm list (everything works on 2.2 devices as well)
- 24 hours / AM-PM and Fahrenheit / Celsius visualization options
- 2 different weather providers (so far)
- Notifications to view/dismiss snoozed alarms
- More stuff such as automatic / manual location and customizable alarm / snooze durations
- MP3 ringtones

Coming soon:
- Bugfixes (can never have enough of those)
- Skip the alarm if a certain weather condition is met (rather than just setting a different time.. you don't want to go jogging if it rains, right?)

Coming sometime in the future
- NFC support to dismiss the alarm by touching a tag
- Maybe traffic info / estimated commute time, someone already asked for it so I'll give it a try


Download
The app is already up on the Play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...mdk.smartalarm
Expect frequents updates, usually once a week

Be Patience. There are millions of alarm apps out there. XDA is one of the best place to get great feedback. Patience is key to success

BTW, I've downloaded the app. I'll test it and share my feedback here tomorrow.

Thank you, it's just that I've seen threads about... er... "less useful" apps getting dozens of views and replies so I was wondering what was wrong with my topic

Or, perhaps, nobody woke up due to my app failing.. though I surely hope not!

Please, do let me know about any bug you encounter and, of course, I'd love some feedback about the general look & feel of the app, that's what betas are for
