I just released on the market the Bedside application for android mobile devices. Have been tested on a G1. It's just a dimmed clock which doesn't let your screen to sleep. It also turns off all sound and vibration notifications except for calls, it vibrates when somebody calls you. As you can see, this is a very very veeeeery simple application, I hope somebody finds it as useful as I do. For more info go here: http://www.danvelazco.com/2009/03/bedside.html enjoy EDIT: so I updated Bedside. It now uses the last ring mode setting you had on the phone as the ring mode for a call. Everything else (gmail/emails/sms/anyOtherBackgroundNotificationApp) goes silently without waking you up at 5am (hate those emails from the bank!). All of this goes on as long as you have the application open, it will not let the screen die, it will let it dim and serves great as a night clock. Stock phone's alarm works great as well, no matter what the app does to all the other notifications. It's VERY simple to use, before opening the app make sure you set the phone to the appropriate ring style you want if somebody calls, maybe set the alarm, then just open the app and sleep. The app has some preferences for 24-hour format, and some colors as well.... Extremely simple, but useful. Enjoy. EDIT 2: After my last post, I updated the app again. New features are: - Different Colors for Clock - 24 Hours Format for Clock - Ability to turn off screen instead of showing the clock, but keeps the program running in the background for nothing to sound except phone calls (and alarms of course). My only upcoming update left to do soon is the ability to adjust brightness if the clock is showing. Merry Christmas everyone!
