What's New in Version 1.6.3
Good but please fix annoying issues
Please please give us a way to turnoff the inane tutorial messages that hide the clock. And it would be nice to have an option to display necessary notifications in a way that does not hide the clock. The second reason for 3 stars is that I bought this for my iPad but had to pay again to install it on my iPhone. And the third reason for 3 stars is that if I pay for an app I don't want to see Facebook and Twitter share icons and the developer's name on the screen. Otherwise the app does what I bought it for. The time display and alarm buttons are clear and big. I like seeing the local weather. The background scenes are pleasant enough given that I really basically just want to see the time and weather. I like being able to disable the lock screen while the phone is charging or until the battery is at 20%. I tried some other clock apps but it was ridiculous to turn over to check the time only to stare at a black screen. In short, the app works but the issues I mentioned are annoying and prevent the app from meriting 5 stars.
Hit Snooze? Time Disappears!
A lot of bells and whistles that you can't turn off. I don't want to know that I can turn on the Mood function in the settings when I hit the snooze. Whose idea was that? Usually there is a button that says Don't show this anymore. No button that I can see. This message appears and covers the clock. The idea of a snooze is to look at the time and decide if you need to get up. Use this alarm you you WILL not snooze because after you figure out what time it is, you've closed the app and you're already awake. It appears nothing is going to change. App has not been updated in 3 years. But they still got my $3.
Avoid this one
I should have gotten the free version to test it out with the iPhone 6. But it had lots of good reviews. The app is extremely buggy in iOS 8. The clock itself isn't very large. The backgrounds are okay, but there should be a way to turn them off. Loading your own backgrounds is a tedious process if you have more than a few. And I couldn't delete them after they were added; the app would turn off the delete function each time I tried.
I want to like this app (especially since it cost 3 bucks). But it needs a lot of work.
