Playlist Alarm Clock Competition

The recent TUAW Playlist Alarm Clock competition created lots of interest so we thought, why not do another one?

P.A.C. go to sleep and wake up listening to your favorite tunes

P.A.C. go to sleep and wake up listening to your favorite tunes

This time it’s just for our own readers. In case you don’t already know, Playlist Alarm Clock is our alarm clock app for the iPhone and iPod touch and it does pretty much what it says on the tin. You can set up a playlist of your favorite songs to wake you up at a pre-determined time. That’s cool enough but there’s more! You can also set up a second playlist of songs to listen to as you go to sleep.

We’re currently drifting off to sleep to the laid back sounds of All India Radio and Hammock (check them out in iTunes) and waking to Dave Stewart’s Heart of Stone and Michael Jackson’s Beat It.

So that’s the basic idea – slow laid back stuff to send you to sleep and something more energetic to get you going in the morning. We’ve got 10 copies of P.A.C to give away to the people that come up with the best playlists – one for sleep and one for wake. We’d love to discover some great new music so don’t just pick all the obvious ones.

Unfortunately the competition is only open to US residents (don’t blame us – Apple’s promo codes only work in the States) and don’t worry if you’ve already bought P.A.C – you can still enter and we’ll give you a promo code for another one of our apps instead…

Just post a reply with your suggestions and we’ll announce the winners next week.
