- Stability Fixes
Screwed If You Can't Leave it Charging
I've used this app a few times now and it has generally worked fine for me. The interface is a little clunky and awkward, especially when you are trying to turn off the alarm, but that's fine.
Recently though I discovered that if you don't plug in your iPad overnight to charge while this app is running, it'll die by morning, leaving you screwed. Last night, I went to bed with 50% battery life and it still died on me.
Obviously the app will require some power and I've used other alarm apps that have used about 15% of my battery life, but 50% is ridiculous. Last night will be the last time I ever use this app and I would recommend the same for everyone else.
Does not work 100% of the time.
The last time I relied on this alarm clock, I ended up being up being an hour late for work. My supervisor woke me up when he called to see where I was at. Very embarrassing using the, "I'm sorry. My alarm never went off", excuse. Never touched it again until last night when I set it for 5:50 AM. Never went off. It was now saying it was set for the next day and I even double checked it before I went to sleep. If you use this app, I would definitely have a backup alarm because I guarantee this one will fail on you, which defeats the whole purpose of this app.
Missed several wake ups since last update
Before the last update I would have given 4 stars (subtracting one because it doesn't do internet radio). Since the latest update, the alarm failed to go off on several occasions. It seems to be better if I keep the iPad plugged in, but it used to work 100% of the time plugged in or not. Also since the update, the snooze feature does not work -- it just turns the alarm off completely. This, too, has caused problems.
Again, it used to be a fine app. If they fix the issues, I'm sure it would be a 4-star app again.
