Alarm Clock App Wakes You Earlier When Traffic Is Bad

I hate those days I get up at normal time, leave the house on time but still end up getting to work late. Issues with the time-space continuum? No, just traffic problems. But that's a thing of the past (supposedly).

new iOS-only app called Snorelax will automatically wake you earlier if traffic problems along your daily route could cause you to be late.

The $2 app monitors real-time traffic conditions, including accidents and construction projects and factors in historical traffic data to help predict how long it might take you to get to work on a given day. You just enter your daily route and go to sleep knowing that you'll make it to work on time—unless you hit that snooze button.
