Hero to zero in one update
I had the old Nightstand for years. It was my go to clock but now it is this problematic item on my phone. The first issue is the "i" icon that will not dim. Second is the alarm will not work with my music. I never tried the built in alarms. Third is the weather I can't get to work. My location is never found on the automatic setting. On the manual setting my location is found but never populates to the clock. If you just want to see a clock with a never dimming i icon, never wakes you up and never gives you the weather... Then this app is for you. You promised me the world and only gave me (please input your bad noun here because it is better that way).
On a good note the clock designs do look great. Fix the issues and I will retract this review and give you six stars.... As my lawyer just informed me I can only promise five stars so five it is. PLEASE FIX THIS APP!
Was my main clock app...
I was so disappointed with this update that I decided to write my first review. I have used this app as my main clock app for sometime now. I liked it's simplicity and design. I would even say I like the new reflection clock better. What I do not like and immediately stopped my using the app is the "i" in the top right corner no longer dims with the brightness setting. Small detail, big impact for me because I turn the brightness setting to the lowest level because I like it to be dark an now I have this super bright "i" staring at me. This is even more important than the fact I can no longer change the weather station from the default Ashford location.
Love the new alarm feature!
I've been using this app for a couple of years now, and only recently discovered the new feature where the alarm will use songs from my iPod. This new feature is great! I use nightstand primarily when I need a substitute for my own alarm clock (travelling, etc) and originally downloaded it after purchasing the charging cable that makes my phone "stand". Now I will happily be using it at home instead of my cd/alarm clock. It's really a great app, especially for the price.
