The dongle doesn’t work
As others have said, the app is pretty cool (it has bacon, so how could that be bad??) but if it’s not open as the primary app with the screen lock timeout disabled, it doesn’t go off. That said, I too was waiting for my scent dongle to arrive. It showed up today. It’s gorgeous and comes packed like a fine watch. Stunning. Unfortunately I had two problems with it. You have to remove the phone from the case to attach it, and when you do, the app recognizes it but there’s no scent.
Bummer, but since the phone can’t be in my expensive Survivor case anyway, I won’t be using the scent dongle. Still, 3 stars for the effort.
Reviewing without owning a dongle
First impressions look good, but needs some improvement.
I like the user interface for setting the alarm.
I don't like being unable to turn off the screen. Apple's alarm clock can run in the background; this one should be able to too. Bonus points for warning me via a badge message after I turn off the screen though.
In settings, Acknowledgement page is blank. App Support gets a Page Not Found error.
I noted another Reviewer warned about not putting headphones in the jack. This app should have that same warning.
If the dongle works as described, that would be quite impressive. Hope such a device lasts a long time. I would expect it to have trouble with cases; but I am not sure if a three inch cord would have an equally long life.
This is all I can review without a dongle. Here is hoping my time can earn one. ;)
Cool, but one major flaw...
The app is cool, and I am waiting for my device to arrive in the mail. However there is one big flaw... If you have any calendar or app notifications while the alarm is set, the alarm will not go off. I learned this the hard way. This should be something I'd expect them to fix with an update, so the app doesn't have to be open and screen on to work.
