Ratings and Reviews
Has potential for a free app. Beware there are ads on the clock screen (and additional adds to be watched). I came into this knowing I would have to probably watch ads since the app is free. There is a “feedback” button, and it opens an email for you. Any feedback you send will not be addressed- simply a reply of “get the paid version.” Since the free version wasn’t that great I can’t imagine investing in the paid version.
At this point I’ll just buy a physical sunrise alarm clock.
Developer Response ,
Looking at the reviews, it seems most people don't mind the ads. However, a significant proportion of customers do not like the ads at all. For those customers we have an ad-free version of the app. However, I would suggest trying this free version first to see if the app is suitable for you. Here is the ad-free version: https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/light-alarm/id346542660
Gentle but effective way to wake up
This is my favorite alarm clock. There’s no startle or stress about waking up to it. Two weird little things though: 1) if you touch your phone at any point in the night there’s a good chance you’ll accidentally un-set the alarm. It’s too easy to do that; and 2) you need to put your phone face-down on the nightstand, as the light feature uses the flash on the back of the phone. If you know these two things though it’s a really nice alarm.
Ads defeat the purpose
Good concept and easy enough to use, but when going to sleep, the clock has a bright white ad on the screen. So it’s not dark while sleeping. I can sleep with a light on especially not a bright white light next to my bed. And if I block the white light, then I’m blocking the gradually brightening alarm light in the am. I get needing ads for revenue, but put them in places that don’t defeat the entire point of your app. How about when you first shut off the alarm, or in the settings screen, or even the first few seconds of setting the alarm and then fade out?
