Alarms are certainly not the best way of starting your day. You’re walking into deep green forests and the next step brings you a vision of a beautiful waterfall. You jump into the hot waterfall and the water tastes like nectar. Then you catch a glimpse of a mermaid taking bath just next to you and you start thinking that even Heaven can’t be better than this. But then a screaming sound enters the depths of your ear like the clouds are about to burst and the next moment, reality slaps a hard one on your face. You’re late for office and as you manage to get ready for office at time, it starts raining. Without any convenience, you’re not going to office and your sleep is also ruined. Wouldn’t it be better if you were informed about the rain earlier? You could either stay sleeping or get ready earlier. If that’s the case, here enters the Talking Weather Alarm into the scene!

Talking Weather Alarm is an iOS app that has been developed by Luca Perino. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 7.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.

This app serves you fresh news and weather reports on your bed when you wake up. Almost everybody likes to get a glimpse at the headlines of the day and in a busy schedule when you’re late for office for 4 out of 5 days a week, you certainly can’t rely on your newspaper. Now there are many dedicated news apps available in the App Store and a look at their home screen is sufficient for the whole day. But when you’re feeling drowsy and unable to turn off your alarm, how can you expect your eyes to read news for you. That’s where Talking Weather Alarm brings a revolution. It lets you hear all the news and weather reports in your language. So you can keep your eyes closed for another 5-10 minutes and wait till your mind wakes up to some breaking news!


Apart from news and weather reports, the alarm section has been covered very wisely and stylishly. There are many different alarm sounds available within the app though you can choose your own sound from your music library as well. There is a homepage with three different interfaces available and just sliding the home screen to the right brings you to the alarm desk where you can customize them within seconds.

So Talking Weather Alarm is just the right app for you if you’re tired of waking up annoyed to your alarm tunes. You can choose your alarm tune in most of the other apps as well but listening to news and weather reports certainly saves a lot of time for your hectic schedule and refreshes you as well, thanks to the lovely voices!

The app is available for $0.99 in the App Store. However, you’ll have to buy separate packs for weather reports, news and voice pro via in-app purchases.

Pros: talking news and weather reports; 10 different languages; customizable alarms and homepage.

Cons: none.
