Alarm Clock HD: The most reliable way to wake up with your own music!
Not the best.
If you’re looking for an alarm clock app that really wakes you up, check out SpinMe Alarm Clock. It’s an alarm that can only be turned off if you get out of bed and spin around 2 times. It basically forces you out of bed! Perfect if you have trouble waking up in the early mornings. I’ve been using SpinMe a lot more than this crappy app, let me explain why.
While Alarm Clock HD does have a lot of function, it lacks ease of use. The steps to add an alarm don’t even make sense and I’m always not sure if I set it correctly. I don’t have a clue as to what some of the buttons and options do. It’s also filled with ads that take up most of the screen, The worst is when you want to press snooze but accidentally click the ad right beside it. I think this app would be better if it removed half the features that are cluttering it. Also, if you are looking for an alarm that plays your iTunes music, the default alarm on your iPhone can already do that.
I personally think that the thousands of 5 star reviews this app has are all fake. There’s a lot more alarm clock apps out there that are more beautiful, and easier to use. This isn’t one of them.
Infantile crap to get you to pay
The app works great as an alarm clock, at least for a short time. However, when your free version "grace period" ends, the designer does an amazing amount of juvenile tactics to get you to pay for the ad-free version. For example, hitting the snooze button can take you straight to the App Store, and the volume notification hides the actual time, so you can't see what time it is if you have managed to hit the snooze button once. While you are in the App Store, of course, you can't turn the volume down or get the app to stop playing your alarm music. So what should be a quick turn off of the alarm, because you're now awake, turns into a much longer period of time. And heaven forbid your significant other would like for you to turn the alarm clock off more quickly. So I'm getting rid of this app, and I'll install one that doesn't have a five-year-old for an author. It's too bad, because the app is a good app, but I'm so sick and tired of the little games the author has decided to play that I will never ever buy an app written by the same designer.
Good, but not without faults
A pretty standard alarm app, but it has some great qualities that make this stand out from just a simple alarm. This app has so many features when setting an alarm: what days does it go off, snooze, the loudness (it can even start soft and become louder), and finally the choices I actual alarms. It had a built in flashlight, tells you current news, tells you the date, and even your battery life. However, as stated in the title, it has faults. If your phone is not charging, it will most likely die. If you hate banner adds, this app will bother you. The app opens a window when you go to it begging for you to write a review; I finally decided to do it. If you can charge your phone and keep it next to you while sleeping, then this is good. I am fortunate enough to be able to do that. Also before you wonder, this alarm can get loud if you want, which is good cuz I am a heavy sleeper.
All in all, it has flaws but it is a good app.
