DescriptionYou have missed your last bus stop or train station!
Have you ever found yourself falling asleep in a bus or train – perhaps on your way home from a night out – waking up in the middle of nowhere and a ticket collector staring at you? Do you ever take the bus some place new, being a little uncertain as to when you're supposed to get off? Are you commuting, wanting to finish that report for work? Maybe you're just a tourist in Denmark and don't know the place.
Either way you will love TravAlarm. It allows you to sleep, read, work or whatever you feel like doing while travelling without having to keep an eye out for your stop. When you're there, TravAlarm will sound the alarm and make sure you're awake!

As an extra precaution in case of bad GPS signal, TravAlarm will use your device's network as a location provider together with the GPS (can be disabled in preferences). Please note that, due to limitations in hardware as well as software, it is not possible to guarantee that the network provides accurate or even correct information on your location at all times: The accuracy of a network fix will typically be around 500 – 1000 m or even higher, depending on how the cell towers are distributed around you. A network fix may be fine, however, if used e.g. with far distance travel when it is not crucial to know exactly how far away from your destination you are.
If you install this app on your device's external storage (SD card), beware that enabling USB mass storage to share files with a computer or otherwise unmounting the external storage causes this and all applications running on the external storage to immediately be killed.
Task manager / app killer:
If you have a task manager installed on your device, remember to add TravAlarm to the whitelist! Not doing so can cause the location updating service to be terminated unexpectedly. Precautions have been taken that will try to restart the service in such a case, but you might actually reach your destination before the service is up and running again.
