Description of App:
PowerAid is an app that brutally awakes you in case of a power outage. If there is a storm coming or a big freeze is on it's way, then you really need this app. Even if PowerAid awakes you just once, it will probably be your wisest investment ever.
It's really simple: Connect your device to a power adapter and start the app. Put the device to sleep. That's it! If the power goes out, a really loud alarm goes off.
PowerAid may also be used as an anti-theft alarm if you are charging your iPhone in public places.
If the power circuit breaker trips or if there is a blackout whilst you are asleep, it can end up costing you thousands. Food worth hundreds in the freezer lost. Heating stops. Your baby or toddlers might freeze. The baby alarm stops working. Your saltwater aquarium gets ruined. Basement sump pump stops. The burglar alarm gets disabled.
This app has a VERY LOUD alarm signal constructed to awake even hearing impaired.

Device(s) App Was Tested On:
You may find a free app that sounds a alarm when AC power stops flowing to your phone like this one, but I have read in reviews for other apps their alarms are not loud enough. This alarm sound is pretty loud and I only have the picker set at 75% for the speaker. This app is cheap and it is VoiceOver compatible. You can choose, voice, loud or high for your alarm sound. I did a test and as long as the app is opened and running, it works in the foreground and background.
