Nap during your commute with TravAlarm

TravAlarm is an iPhone app that allows you to set a location-alarm. Now you can kick back, close your eyes, and take a quick power nap during your morning commute and relax knowing that you won't miss you stop because TravAlarm will alert you when you've reached your stop.

Even if you don't want to take a nap, TravAlarm is fantastic for closing your eyes, relaxing, and listening to music during your commute. Unfortunately for me, my commute involves me behind the wheel, but once I'm able to to take advantage of Denver's light rail, you bet I'll be using TravAlarm!

Word Ball for iPhone now available

Word Ball, by Continuous Integration, is a new word game on the iPhone. The goal of the game is to keep the letters alive by spelling words with them.

I'm generally terrible at word games and thus avoid them like the plague, but I've actually enjoyed playing Word Ball. I may not be good at it, but it's enjoyable and a great little time-killer.

Details and screenshots after the break.
