Cornell University student Peter Zieskelikes to doze off on bus rides, and he has created an app to help others do the same without missing their stops.

Bus Alarm, Zieske s original creation for Windows Phone, is an alarm clock designed to wake users up when they arrive at their stop using integrated public transit routes and GPS technology. Just type a bus route,select a stop, and zone out for the rest of the ride. There s even integrated voice recognition, so a usercan simply say, Bus Alarm, set alarm for [preferred stop].

The app is available now in the Windows Phone Marketplace.Zieske developed it while working this summer as a Microsoft intern, and it was the winning entrant in the company s recent Microsoft intern hackathon.
