I don't know because apparently in order to have any other sound than the blood curdling horror movie scream of a man or a woman wake you up you have to pay for it. So it may be a good thing, but I'd like to try a light version once or twice that doesn't involve me waking up thinking people are being murdered before I commit to buying the full version.
Also, I don't know if this is related, but after I downloaded this app and plugged my phone into my wall charger the sound that my phone made was really weird and off from the using beep it makes when it's first plugged into something. I unplugged and plugged it back in 3-4 times to confirm, and each time the sound was slightly off. Then I deleted the app and plugged my phone in, and the sound went back to normal. Maybe it's related? Maybe it's not? I'm just throwing that out there.
I give it 4 stars because it saves my behind
Normally I love this app. Not much can wake me, and I used to turn off my other alarms while asleep. I never buy things in apps, but $0.99 to play my own songs instead of having screams of bloody murder ringing through my dorms sounded fine to me. For over a year, it's been doing its job perfectly (albeit "perfectly" is incredibly obnoxious when I turn on the app at midnight to set the alarm and have to walk 30 steps with a blanket around my hand to muffle the noise).
But every time my phone dies, I have a heart attack because the app makes a loud noise it scold me for trying to escape. Again, I try to avoid my phone dying. But today I noticed that 30% of my phone's battery went into 2 minutes of the app being open and 11.5 HOURS of background activity. Fine, I'll risked taking 30 steps and close the app in the background. Then my phone starts buzzing every 5-10seconds to scold me for "cheating myself". The only way to stop it is to open it up again.
I try not to complain about how the phone prevents me from turning it off while I'm asleep, but my battery is gone! Over the past 6 days, it's been on my scream for 12 minutes and in the background for 92.5 hours and used 34% of my total battery. That's the most battery usage out of any app I have, including games and Facebook.
Not worth the headache...
If I could describe this app in a small phrase, it would be "simply awful." I was delighted to see that the app was free, but this is facade for several fees to come. What you already know is that you need to pay for your own music, and you probably know that the music doesn't work. But what you don't know is that it doesn't allow you to choose any of your alarm tones! So if I want to wake up to the iPhone's marimba or something similar, I'm not allowed to do that on the app. If I have a funny ringtone or custom jingle, I'm not allowed to use that in the app. And if you exit out of this "lifesaver," it sends you constant nagging alerts, which means that I can't go into power saving mode and my phone is always burning juice! I was one of the poor suckers who got this app thinking it was great. If there are some serious updates, it might be great someday, but as for right now, I wouldn't even look at this app unless you like to wake up to bloody murder and love having a phone with no battery. DO NOT GET!
