Rise & Shine allows your iPhone wake you up in a more natural manner.

Maybe you are affected by SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) and want the benefits of waking up to a slowly fading light source.

Or maybe you don’t like waking up with a jolt to the sound of your alarm every morning!

Rise & Shine also has all the usual functions of a normal alarm clock and more:

Fade up light slowly to wake you in a more natural manner – can be set to fade up to 60 minutes before alarm

Flash light rapidly to wake you without the need for a loud alarm

Choose from your photo library and wake up to the image of a loved one!

Choose from 20+ built in sounds or create a playlist from your iPod music to wake up to.

Features a large LCD clock display with details of the next alarm - just touch the screen to see what it happening now and what will happen next.

Choose from nine different clock colors

Portrait and Landscape modes.

Ambient, Standard, Music and Seasonal

Option to fade up sound over 60 mins

Torch mode – just shake the device and it becomes a torch

Vibrate mode

Snooze – 5 minute snooze mode can be enabled

This application MUST run in the foreground. It is recommended you keep your device plugged in due to the time the application will be running.

I wanted to like this. I had a dawn simulator once and miss it, but it doesn't really do the trick. Also, landscape mode is upside down for most iPhone cases with a stand built in. I wrote the author, who promptly ignored me. Oh, well. I'll keep looking...

I wanted to love this, but...

There are too many things that need fixing and I would think that the developer would want a better product.
When you wake up during the midnight hour the clock do any read 12:30 (or whatever the minutes are). It just reads :30. The fade up when the alarm goes off doesn't actually fade up. It wakes you up very loudly. It's not all relaxing like it is supposed to be. I do find the light very effective though.

Good app with bugs

I liked the previous version of this app. it worked well for me. the new version seems to offer more functionality but has some bugs. Any type of input that requires scrolling through selections gets stuck on the selection window. For example when I try to set the fade in time I can scroll through ‘disabled’ all the way to ’60 min’ but that is all. It doesn’t select my choice and return me to the previous menu. the only way to regain functionality is to kill the app and restart it.
