  • Alarm Clock Xtreme

    2. Alarm Clock Xtreme
    Some people snap to quivering attention first thing in the morning, eager and willing to get to work. For the rest of us, there's Alarm Clock Xtreme, one of the most customisable de-sleepers out there. It can be programmed to quietly ramp up the alarm and turn off with a shake, if you have a light-sleeping partner. It will optionally play at full blast and not stop until you solve and enter a simple maths equation, if you have no partner at all. It will mute all alarms if it detects it's in motion via GPS. And so on: you have to get up really early in the morning to catch this one out.

    If you run a home or small office system with remote access, you can make things significantly more secure by having one-time passwords. Providing your services support RFC 2289 — and many do — you can use OTPDroid as a client on your Android phone to generate the password when you're on the move. This makes it far safer to log on from untrusted or public systems, as anyone who intercepts your password will find it useless thereafter.

  • AnDOSBox

    4. AnDOSBox
    If you can't see the point of running a DOS emulator on your Android, you're probably right. But those who still have libraries of pre-Windows utilities, games or other digital memorabilia should know that here is a very fine emulator that does the job better than seems reasonable. Based on the GPL DOSBox emulator — Locnet will email its source to purchasers — AnDOSBox is like having an enormous metal box in your pocket, without the enormous metal box.
