Most of you might expect that Google will use the app to its Android or integrate the alarm clock feature to its Google+ mobile app. But, there is a chance, where Google will kill the service after few months, as it did with the 4-months old acquisition – Bump and Flock. Most of the acquisition done by the search giant is for the technology and intellectual properties.

If you are still unaware of Bitspin, check their beautiful alarm application at Google Play Store, which enable users to buy themes and other additions within the app. Timely is popular for its Smart Rise feature and animations. The app also includes stopwatch, recurring alarms, adaptive snoozing, DashClock and Google Now integration.
