When you set your alarms at night you're probably only concerned about getting as much sleep as possible, not about what unforeseen problems in the morning could make you late for work. You can leave those concerns to a new iOS-only app called Snorelax that will automatically wake you earlier if traffic problems along your daily route could lead to delays. The $2.99 app not only monitors real-time traffic conditions, including accidents and new construction projects, it also factors in historical traffic data to help predict how long it might take you to get to work on a given day. You'll of course need to teach the app the route you take every morning, but once it's setup you'll be able to head off to bed with some extra peace of mind knowing you won't be late in the morning — unless you hit that snooze button too many times.
