Summarise – Talking Alarm Clock has just been released in the App Store! Summarise – Talking Alarm Clock looks to get your day started in a cool audible way. Unlike regular alarm clocks that can wake you via a buzzing sound or music, Summarise will speak to you. What does it say? Well, for one it can tell you the day’s weather forecast. Additionally, you can have it read you the news, your emails from the last 12 hours, your appointments for the day, and more. You’ll have to leave Summarise running overnight for it to work, due to iOS rules. But it’s a fun way to start your day without missing a beat!
