This app will wake you up if the power is cut in the middle of the night. It will help you to get a good nights sleep!

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.

Great security app

I use the app as a security tether which works well. The app is clean and simple to use. I wish the prompt could be turned off but more of an eye sore than functionality. Background does work with device turned off. I do wish it could be always active in the background long as it is plugged in.

Almost Perfect

I hope the app’s publisher is still around. I tried leaving feedback from within the app but the email address given seems to no longer be valid.

For my needs, this app is almost perfect. My only enhancement request is to add a “time delay” option which enables me to set a configurable time period which must elapse after a power outage before the alarm sounds. For example, I would like the power to be out for 20 seconds before the alarm sounds. If the power returns prior to the 20 seconds elapses then the 20 second counter is reset.

Reasoning: I live in a rural area which frequently experiences power outage “blips” during windy conditions. Many of these outages last two seconds at most before the power returns and the blips may occur multiple times in a short time frame. I would prefer the app’s alarm not wake me for such brief outages.

I don't usually leave reviews, but I must say this app perfectly combines function and beauty. Simple elegant and user friendly with all the features you would want in a utility app of this sort. I did a lot of research on other similar apps and most fell short of my expectations, but this one hit the nail in the head. Now I can sleep comfortably knowing my daughter won't be left in the cold during a blackout.

Plus as a designer I have a have a love for beauty in simplicity.
