TravAlarm NYC app has all the functional and aesthetic alarm clock features, and can also receive subway updates from Metropolitan Transport Authority (MTA) of New York City 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 subway lines. So now you can use a different line instead or just leave early to make up for the delay.

Already a successful app in the UK:
Metro Newspaper Article said 'Never be late again due to subway delays, just be appy!'

T3 Gadget Magazine said- 'End your underground related woes caused by subway delays'

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 subway 123 and Montauk Rail line to work so you set delay early wake time to 40 minutes for both lines. Then if there is a delay in the subway 123 or Montauk Rail line, then it will wake you up at 7:20 AM. It will give you a spoken warning on which line the delay is on.

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.

    No more can subway and rail delays make me late. Now I wake up with enough time to grab that yummy breakfast instead of being crammed in a carriage!
