Program IR Devices Remotely with AirClock
AirSpell, has released AirClock v2.30, the first alarm clock application for Palm Powered devices to feature remote IR control capabilities. Leveraging the built-in infrared port of Palm OS handhelds, AirClock can turn on at a specified time, any consumer electronics appliance equipped with a IR remote control.
In addition to being a full-featured alarm clock application, airclock has the ability to turn on any appliance equipped with a remote control by using your handhelds built-in infrared port. This new version features snooze duration, vibration, LED blinking, backlight, background image and hourly chime settings. The infrared range has been improved, thanks to the new "Boost Infrared" option. AirClock also takes advantage of the high-power infrared present on some Sony Cliés models and supports Tech Center Labs' IR-Blaster.
AirClock is available for purchase at AirSpell.com. AirClock’s retail price is US$19.95 but can be purchased for a limited time for only US$14.95. A 15-day trial version is also available for download.
It will work with any handheld running Palm OS 3.0 or greater - this includes models from Palm, Handspring, Sony, HandEra, Samsung, Kyocera, Acer, and Symbol and at least 120k of free memory. Unfortunately, AirClock's infrared wake-up capabilities are not yet available on Palm OS 5 handhelds such as the Palm Tungsten and the Sony Cliés NX60 and NX70. An upcoming release will include this feature.
