"One of the smartest apps we've encountered is Android developers Katzoft's Underground Alarm which uses open data from Transport for London combined with a basic alarm clock to warn commuters that their line is delayed. The thinking is that, with an earlier warning that their line has delays, travellers can either get up earlier to factor the delay into their journey or else plan accordingly."
Will Dean, The Ideas Factory, The Independent

Have you ever arrived at a Tube station just to realise that there are severe delays or that it is closed? Wish you had known earlier so you could have allowed more time for your journey or taken a different route? This app allows you to avoid all this. So how does it work?

Underground Alarm is an alarm clock for users of the London Underground (including Overground and DLR). In addition to standard alarm clock features, it can be set to automatically wake you up earlier when there are problems on any of the lines you use to get to your destination.

This way, you will avoid being late to work and at the same time make the most of your night's sleep when there is no delay. Try it out! It even shows you how much additional sleep you have had since starting to using it.

There is hardly a day during which there are no delays, part suspensions or line closures courtesy of TfL. Don't be one of the angry commuters, but impress your boss by being on time and alert every day.

Of course you can also use it to receive notifications of service updates during the day, for example when you have to travel to a meeting and you want to be alerted of a Tube strike.

It is very easy to set up and use. Just set your regular alarm time, which lines you use, the tube status threshold, early alarm time and your favourite ringtone and you're good to go! Of course there are many more customisation options to explore, e.g. why not have it read the status updates to you or launch your favourite news app after the alarm?

Also includes a tube map and an overview of the current line status. You can test it for free, but to access the advanced features like repeating alarms, it is necessary to purchase a key.
