Challenge Alarm Clock v0.0.1.0

After a few days of working, it's finally ready to at least show. This is an alarm clock with a twist. When the alarm goes off, you can't simply hit snooze, you have to complete a challenge to shut it up.

In v0.0.1.0, the only challenge is a simple addition or subtraction problem. Also, the program simply closes when the problem is solved.

This is still VERY MUCH a work in progress. This version is basically a proof-of-concept. If you notice any bugs, please let me know in this thread.

I AM NOT SURE HOW EFFECTIVE THIS IS AT WAKING PEOPLE UP. I RECOMMEND YOU USE A BACKUP ALARM CLOCK.

Challenge Alarm Clock v0.0.1.0


Ugly? Yes.
Unimpressive? Yes.

Functional? Yes. And that's all this version was really about.

I plan to add more challenges and more alarm options at a later date.

Sadly that's the only option, can't quite turn on your computer in the morning.

Cool idea, except for the fact that your computer needs to be on all night for it to work properly.

I know of many people who leave their computers on all night. The monitor can be off.

Even with the monitor off, I don't like the noise of that fan inside the PC

I don't really feel like it's a good idea to leave my laptop on all night...

I reckon a DS version would be good. Unfortunately you could turn it off but it would be easier to keep on all night.

I had looked into it but it seems quite a bit more complex than XNA. The only other two platforms I could easily pull off would be Xbox and Window Phone 7 (and who has that amirite?)

I leave my laptop on all the time. I'll try it out next time I fall a sleep, which won't be tonight because staying up all night is compensation for the shitty birthday I had.

Well, WP7 seems better suited to this program than an Xbox or computer. I don't reckon that many people would leave their computer or Xbox on overnight (I don't obv., and even if they did the computer/Xbox might not be in their bedroom), whereas it's pretty convenient to leave your phone near your bed or something.

Anyway, I'd use your alarm clock app on my HTC Mozart

edit: just thought I'd mention that an iOS version of this would be ideal, what with the huge userbase and all.

Looked into iOS as well, it'd ost $100, lus I'd have to get a mac and iPod to test it on.

Android is also a possibility, it'd just be a fresh start on learning a language.
