Late Mate Randomizes Your Clock So You’re Never Late

Comments

Late Mate is a funny app that aims to stop you from being late for appointments. The idea is very simple: people who are late generally like to set their clocks a few minutes fast in order to trick themselves into leaving a little bit earlier rather than later. This inevitably doesn’t work because they know their clocks are set ahead and end up leaving later anyways. Late Mate prevents you from doing this by randomizing the clock 0 to 10 minutes fast throughout the day. This way, you never know if your clock is perfectly accurate, or 10 minutes fast, meaning you’re either right on time or a little early.

Late Mate is a simple app that makes you wonder whether 10 minutes is at all important anyways. If you’re so concerned with arriving within 10 minutes of when you said you would be somewhere, than you should probably shouldn’t be playing with the settings on the clock.

What do you think of the concept behind this app?

BlackBerry Storm Game ‘Run Stickboy Run!’ with Accelerometer Controls

Comment

Run Stickboy Run! may not have any fancy graphics or compelling UI, but it’s simple and fun. The game uses the accelerometer on your Storm to control a stick man who runs back and forth to avoid falling balls. While nicer graphics would go a long way to making this game more fun, it’s not bad considering how bare-bones it is. Also, because it’s so simple, the game is reasonably priced.

More information (not much else to say) about Run Stickboy Run! available in the store.

Gizmo Theme by Elecite With Rack System Application Access

Comment

Gizmo is a newish theme from Elecite that has their trademark futuristic look and feel, and helps you get your most used applications up-front-and-center for convenient use. The Gizmo theme organizes your applications in a rack system with each icon spaced in a slot that can be rearranged based on priority. Also, Gizmo has a customizable icon dock at the bottom with 4 customizable icons and a dedicated clock spot. This theme is also wallpaper friendly with a trigger underneath the time that closes the rack and allows for an unobstructed view of the glory you’ve downloaded to your device.

More information about the Gizmo theme available from Elecite.

Also, for all you Elecite fans, be sure to check out their Storm 3 mock up. It’s “out there” and sort of unbelievable that RIM would go with a crystal, almost concept-phone style design.

Will Rogers’ Handset Protection Guarantee Program Blend?

Comments

A little while ago Rogers announced its Handset Guarantee Program. Today, the program has officially launched and Rogers got Tom Dickson of BlendTec’s “Will it Blend?” to introduce the new service.

We have all had a lost or stolen device at some point and this new program will allow users to get a speedy repair or replacement if the device is within the manufacturer’s warranty period. Alternatively if your device is out of the warranty period by time or broken, Rogers can assess the problem and provide a quote for repair (to be completed in 10 days with a courtesy phone). The aim of the program is to have a new device ready for pickup in 3-5 business days or less. You can also choose a replacement device in exchange for another 12 months on contract.
