We live in a sleep-deprived world.

People who travel by public transport often try to take the opportunity to fall asleep (fitfully) in transit, but they do so in fear of oversleeping their stop.

Even if there are audible station or bus-stop announcements, these are surprisingly easy to sleep through.

Today’s invention is a smartphone app which determines, using eg GPS, when its owner is within two minutes of his or her stop before buzzing a sharp, personal wake-up call.
