About

TalkClok - talking alarm clock app 

Please check the "Update section" for even more details.

Isn't it always the same in the morning? The radio alarm clock plays music you do not like, the radio host is giving info you're not interested in but excludes cool stuff. How about waking up with ONLY the information you are interested in... and your music?
That is why we designed TalkClock.

Whether you’re a morning person or not, every day starts with the need for information. We will create the best talking Alarm Clock App imaginable. Your weather, your traffic, your calendar, your tweets – and so much more. No reading required. Just relax and listen.

Overview: What can TalkClok read out for you? Image shows working prototype.

That's how TalkClok wakes you up

(after some neat music)

Let's listen to TalkClok - you can choose every voice on your device.

The Audiofiles are very, very close to the results from the working prototype.

The magic - how does it work?

TalkClok gets its data from different sources. Depending on the way you are organizing your life, it can simply process your device's data like reminders and calendars, or securely connect to Google and process your tasks and online calendars.

A picture paints a thousand words, let's have a look at some settings screens.

Easy configuration. But fully customizable.

Easy weather forecast setup. Setting up the route you want traffic infos for (trip to work...)

Risks and challenges

We have a perfectly working prototype, every bit and piece of solution is proved and tested. We now simply need the money to put it together by some App Developer guys who know what they‘re doing. Good news, we already found them and they thought the whole concept and technical solution through. No show-stoppers, no deal breakers we just need a GO (from you!).
