It is now officially Spring time, even though the weather hasn’t really caught up with the seasons yet, so what better time for a spring clean! We have some great apps and tutorials that will help you give your life that much needed spring clean – its never to late to get everything sorted!

1. No more lay ins for you! Get up and have a productive day!


This simplistic alarm clock application introduces a whole new way to snooze and set the timing by using finger motions. If being named one of the “Most Beautiful iOS Apps of 2012″ and being featured in over 10 magazine titles isn’t enough, you better read on. This clever alarm revolves around dragging and swiping menu functions, such as dragging up and down to set the time you want to wake up and also swiping across to turn the alarm on and off. Repeat settings and tone changing is fully available and it comes ready loaded with some high quality classic alarm tones. Changing the time with a dragging motion also changes the background based on the time of day, whether it be sunrise or sunset. Did we forget to mention that it is fully compatible with iOS6 functions too? Its time to wake up and embrace the new and futuristic technology!
