If you're in the market for the ultimate alarm clock app and you haven't checked out puZZed yet, now is a good time to do so. Developed by qbotron, puZZed will present you with a puzzle to solve before you can turn off that annoying alarm. Qbotron just released a major update that adds not only some new features that current customers have been asking for, but also ensures that all the puzzles are bug free.

One thing to note, puZZed used to be a free download with in-app purchases for unlocking additional features. With this release the app has moved away from that system and will now cost you $1.99 to download, but that gets you all 5 puzzles, 2 alarm modes (Simple - traditional alarm; Detail - set alarm for each day of the week with option to disable for sleeping in), and more. Puzzle difficulty is shown in the main screen as easy/white, hard/yellow, and crazy/red. You can also Snooze for short period of time while you solve the puzzle (10 or 30 seconds). This was implemented for the new parents who have problem waking up but don't want to wake up their new borns. All puzzles are optimized and are completely bug free. You can grab puZZed now for BlackBerry smartphones running OS 4.6 and higher.
