Great Alarm Clock!
I absolutely love this alarm clock! I use it every day for work. I am required to take my breaks & lunches at specific times and can not take them any more than 4 minutes past the scheduled time or I get written up. Therefore, I need an alarm clock that I can easily set several times a day. This clock works fabulously for that purpose. I love this alarm clock because I can choose a sound that will play when the alarm goes off that is not too loud or obnoxious. I work in customer service on the phone & I need an alarm that my customers won't hear when it goes off. This alarm fits the bill perfectly. Another excellent quality of this alarm clock is that since it's on my iPad, I can easily take it with me when I travel. The display lighting is adjustable by swiping you finger across the screen. It can be adjusted to be dim for night time or bright for daytime. This alarm has many different sounds to choose from for the alarm, which is fun & convenient. I love the alarm feature that you can easily set the time, up to the minute for the alarm to go off. If you are looking for a simple, yet exceptional alarm clock, this is it, I highly recommend it to everyone.
This app is middle of the road as far as alarms go. It has some bad and some good features about it.
First off, the app has to be open in order for music to be played. While this isn't horrible, it significantly increases the chances of missing a wake up if you forget to open it before you go to bed.
Second, while the app allows one to fade in their music, I noticed that initially there is a quick full volume burst and then the alarm volume decreases and fades in.
Lastly, there is no easy snooze button on the lock screen when the alarm goes off with music. It simply just shows the controls when music is playing normally. It forces me to pause the music, unlock the phone, and then push stop for the current alarm.
The ability to turn off the news, weather, and social media is a plus. I don't really care for this stuff first thing in the morning.
I do like the fade in alarm; if it worked 100% this would be the bees knees.
If you are into style, the clock graphic may be up a nice bonus to you.
It's easy to set alarms and set their repeat state. The ability to also set multiple repeating alarms is nice.
All in all this alarm will give some improvement over the default iPhone alarm app. It is by no means spectacular, but I think worth the meager fee for the pro version.
Overall a very good app.
I've been using this app for a long time, and for the most part it is a very good app. It's only major flaw is that if the internet connection drops it pops a message and the Alarm will not go off if that message is on the screen.
There is no good reason for it to do this. If the author's truly feel that the lack of internet for reporting the news feed information is important, simply put a status message on the screen. Frequently connection status fixes itself anyway.
Before Apple put their own clock application back on the iPAD, I used to turn off my internet myself before going to sleep just to be safe. now I have the alarms on the standard clock app, and this one too. And I leave this one up at night. Make sure however, you are plugged in if you do this, as it does sap battery. But I do like being able to look over and see the time easily. I have a Zagg keyboard which allows the iPad to be propped up nicely, and this app is a nice display of the time.
