WakeUpMe Video/Audio/Radio alarm clock for Symbian S60 3rd editionWakeUpMe Video alarm clock for Symbian S60 3rd editionWakeUpMe is a new kind of alarm clock that interact with your installed audio, video and even the radio player on your mobile phone. If you are a man who likes to wake up with more then your favorite tune or maybe your most annoying sound of song like I do, now you can do more. Since I have SmartMovie installed, I have tried WakeUpMe with a few videos I downloaded on my mobile phone and I must say the sensation of waking up with more then a sound is very interesting and refreshing.

The application offers Visual Radio, LCG Jukebox, FIVN Player or other video or audio player you might have installed on your phone. If you plan to use Visual Radio you must plug in the headset cos the phone uses it as an antenna.

Since this is the 4.0 release of WakeUpMe or as the author has named it pyBudzik there are a lot of bug fixes and improvements so with clear mind I can say that I recommend this application at least to try it on your Symbian S60 3ed edition mobile phone.
You can download this free alarm clock application from the download link at the bottom of this article.
