Ratings and Reviews
Does just what it needs to do
I agree with the other reviewers that the clock is too bright at night. I just turn my phone upside down which doesn't allow me to enjoy the wake up with light feature. However, I do enjoy the gently fading music and the peaceful tones. Its a nice way to wake up. It's a simple app that does what it claims to do.
I hate the new upgrade :(
Everything was changed and I hate it. I liked it just the way it was and I am frustrated that it was upgraded without my choosing. Every setting is different and more complicated, if I keep this app I would need to get used to a new sound (don't like the new wind chime sound), take extra steps to set/turn on the alarm, adjust to different lighting/fade in, and lastly, the "snooze" and "cancel" buttons used to be different colors and farther apart-- now they are written smaller, are the same color and are closer together--making it easier to confuse the two when half asleep/just waking up.
Very disappointed. I used to love this app and told others to try it. Now I'm thinking of deleting it :(
Failed to Wake Me Up
This app sounded like what I was looking for, but then I woke up an hour after my set alarm...no light came on, no sound.
Not sure what else I need to configure, but this didn’t work like I thought it would or it says it would. Maybe you need to keep your phone unlocked and on for it to work, but who does that? My phone locks after a couple of seconds...
Developer Response ,
Yes your phone must be unlocked for this to work. This is as per Apple design - application can't unlock your phone. This is stated in both the help and also as a notification when you lock your phone after starting the alarm.
