PreCentral: Set a countdown timer with Power Nap

Recommended Posts

Power NapThere are many ways that you can set an alarm with webOS, such as using the stock alarm feature within the Clock app, creating a calendar entry, or using apps like Timer Classic or Dashboard Utilities to set a countdown timer. However, if you are looking for an app that is both extremely simple to use yet also offers you a plethora of features and preferences, you should check out Power Nap, by Kevin Foreman.  For 99 cents in the App Catalog, Power Nap's intended purpose was to help you set a time to wake you up from a power nap, but it can be used for almost any purpose.

Upon launching the app, you are given a few buttons and a slider that will allow you to quickly set the minutes or hours for your power nap, while displaying both the duration of the timer and the alarm time. You can actually set the default nap time in the app's preferences (accessible by swiping down from the top-left to view the Application dropdown menu and selecting Preferences), along with settings for your alarm ringtone, if you want vibration on or off, a default snooze time, and more.  Once you have you desired alarm time set, tapping the "Set Nap Time" button then brings up another pop-up that lets you set the alarm volume (which can be independent of the system's volume setting) as well as an option to show a countdown screen in the app card or just give you the dashboard notifications.

The two features of the app that really set this apart from the other methods or time apps is that even if you close both the app and dashboard, the timer still runs in the background (to access the dashboard controls in the future, just relaunch the app), and the vibration alarm has a randomizing algorithm that makes the device seem to almost go crazy when the timer goes off. This is actually intentional, to help the "napper" realize an alarm is going off. So, the next time you need to set an alarm, whether it's for 15 minutes or 15 hours, check out Power Nap.

Power Nap is available in the webOS App Catalog for $0.99 and is compatible with all webOS devices running webOS 1.3.1 or higher

      I was reading a few articles on the launch of Disney Plus but they did not list any of the tvs such as LG webos or samsung tv. I hope disney plus comes out in lg tvs.  Its supposed to launch November 12th in the US for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. They also said there will be a $12.99-per-month trio bundle of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ that is coming. I'm already doing espn for $4.99, I may do the entire bundle to get hulu also, not sure, At the minimum, I am definitely going to get Disney plus

      To all, I hope someone can help me. We recently bought an oled55e9 en we are actually quite pleased, apart from the wifi being to slow and sometime dropping.

      Hi All Has anyone with a 2019 model Webos 4.5 or above got any of the Freeview IPTV channels working eg. 211,  261,  265 etc. I am trying to workout if this really is a problem affecting every TV made by LG in 2019 or just a few of us. If it is every LG tv then why are there so few people highlighting and reporting this, If it is just a few of us the maybe is is a set or batch problem. I just struggle to understand why LG would remove functionality from a tv that has more pro

      Hi All, Has anyone had a recent update of the OS on their TV to 4.7.050204 (goldilocks2-gulaga) ? The reason I ask is that the IPTV channels on my TV seem to have borked these channels as I now get "Invalid Service" floating across the screen. I'm pretty sure these channels worked before the update. I'm referring to channels such as Now 90's, Planect Knowledge, The Sports Channel Network etc. So these are NOT APPS but TV Channels showing up on the guide and still show the prog
