TIME TO ENJOY SETTING YOUR ALARM CLOCK
Reach out and touch the screen. Every element is meant to be interactive. Left handed? Yes, Rise loves you, too.
Pull it up or down and watch the sky change as you pick a wake up time. Turn the alarm on by pulling the screen left or right.
Or, simply shake your device to quickly set an alarm for a short nap or to use as a timer.
WAKING UP IS A BEAUTIFUL THING
Wake up to the sound of the woods, ease into the day with a custom Rise melody, or your favorite song from iTunes.
Tap to snooze and be a little late, or pull the screen to turn off the alarm and be on time. Hey, it's your life.
From the lock screen: Shake to snooze or turn off the alarm.
MULTIPLE ALARMS HAVE NEVER BEEN THIS EASY (With in-app purchase)
Easily create repeating alarms for any time with custom labels for each alarm. Toggle all your alarms on or off from one screen. Rise will always show the next alarm when you open the app.
A BETTER ALARM NEEDS A BETTER CLOCK
Large clock in either portrait or landscape (for docked devices) with clock background options: Night or Skyscape. Swipe to change the clock background and dim the screen by sliding up or down.
LET RISE HELP YOU FALL (ASLEEP)
Use SleepTunes to make a playlist from your iTunes collection to help you fall asleep. Set a timer for your playlist so it doesn't run all night.

Ratings and Reviews
Updated Review: Unreliable and Now Deleted
I used to love this app, but it has become increasingly unreliable over the past year or two. Sometimes the wake up system would work correctly, other times it would not. Sometimes my iPhone would only vibrate, even though all settings and controls had been double checked to allow full volume. Sometimes nothing would happen - no sounds, no vibration - even though an alarm had been set and turned on. Sometimes the alarm functioned as expected, just not often enough for me to keep this app on my iPhone. I tried powering down my phone and restarting it just before bedtime; I tried uninstalling the app, then reinstalling it; nothing seemed to help. So, farewell to Rise. I will miss the gentle waking of the gradually increasing volume, but I cannot live with the unreliability.
I really wanted to like this app. There’s so much potential. Two stars because the alarm tones and progressive alarms are really lovely, but that’s it. As others have said, the alarms are unreliable, and god help you if you just happened to absent mindedly close the app on your phone because if it’s not actively running, your alarm won’t go off. So that defeats a pretty central purpose of this app.
The final straw for me is the UI/UX—classic example of bypassing usability in favor of “ooh shiny!” fancy transitions and bells and whistles. And I say that as a front end dev who is tempted by that stuff all the time. It’s pretty but terrible to use. Give me an ugly but logical UI any day.
No longer works
I just missed another appointment because my Rise alarm failed to sound. The developers move to Swift has been disastrous. The app fails to function as an alarm clock at all.
Rise has always been a little idiosyncratic: the UI is well intentioned but confusing (I often accidentally turn off recurring alarms when I merely meant to stop an alarm from going off — Rise makes snoozing an alarm easy but turning it off very difficult). The great redeemer of Rise has been the wonderful alarm sounds that come with the app.
Now, however, while you can still snooze an alarm from the notification, the app crashes if you try to turn the alarm off. The only solution is to delete the app and reinstall it. Unacceptable!
