TravAlarm DC app has all the functional and aesthetic alarm clock features, and can also receive metro updates from Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) of Washington DC and then use that information to wake you up earlier than a set alarm in case there is a delay on any 3 of your favourite metro lines. So now you can use a different line instead or just leave early to make up for the delay.

Washington Examiner Newspaper Article said 'Metro delays? iPhone TravAlarm app can help you arrive on time'

The Hoya Newspaper Article said 'New TravAlarm App Eases Commute'

Featured in the WGN720 Chicago and various other Radio Stations too!

If there is a delay on your favourite subway line then the alarm will wake you up earlier with a voice message saying that there is a delay on that line and then it will play a music track from your mobile devices playlist so you wake to your favourite music as well.

Note: Alarm needs connection to the internet / network for warning alert to go off

★ Example of it working★
Suppose you set the alarm to wake up at 8:00 AM. And you take the Blue and Green line to work so you set delay early wake time to 40 minutes for both lines. Then if there is a delay in the blue or green line, then it will wake you up at 7:20 or 7:40 AM. It will give you a spoken warning on which line the delay is on and what kind of delay it is.

Its so much more convenient to be woken up with that information instead of having to fiddle around on the internet trying to check the status of your favorite subways. Not only that you get woken up earlier so you can make up for that delay by leaving earlier or take another route into work thereby never being late again.
