In my everlasting search for an alarm clock/nightstand app for the iPad, I downloaded this one in the hopes it would be the "perfect" one, and even though I like some aspects, it is lacking in several points:
1. Interface for settings and preferences is not iPad like.
2. Buttons are extremely small and bunched up together.
3. You only get one font for alarm clock. I've seen that font/typeface for 30 years with conventional LED clocks. I want something different.
4. We need the ability to customize the position and size of gadgets and clock.
5. We need the option to dim screen by swiping it up/down, and not inside a menu. Menus are hard to use at 3am.
6. Included pics are useless. To "busy" to make out what's happening (even after dimming). Fortunately, you can add your own pics. With so much available and small info on screen, you need minimalist backgrounds.
7. Can never open Facebook from the app.
Hopefully these suggestions will be incorporated before this app becomes one of those purchased-but-not-installed nor recommended apps.
What I DO like:
1. Alarm function
2. Talking clock
3. Futuristic looks
Only two features from perfection...for me :-)
Overall, I really like the app and I think the developer(s) have done a really good job. It has most of the features I would want and the ability to use my own pics is great. I know it also shows the current date, which is good but I have a couple of requests. I would like to have an editable calendar view so that it could display 1-3 months at a time while still being able to see the background picture. I would also like to have the ability to show 1-4 clocks from different timezones. They could be displayed as smaller clocks above the main clock as digital or analog with editable labels to indicate the city time being displayed.
With the addition of those two features, this is definitely a 5-star app and definitely worth more than $0.99.
Would be good.. if it WORKED!
I like this app, so it's so disappointing that as soon as the display of the iPad goes to sleep this app punts me back to the home screen, effectively rendering it useless since the alarm won't go off at that point. Several versions ago the author said this would be taken care of in the next update. That was several months and point releases ago, and I still can't use this thing as an actual ALARM (unless I set the alarm for 1 minute from now!). Subsequent emails to the author have been ignored. It's a pity, but stay away from this one and go with an actual supported alarm clock app. They may not have as many features or look as nice, but at least they function in their main duty.
