➠ The Sounds
Inspired by traditional Tibetan singing bowls these sound-waves produce a blend of harmonic overtones known for their ability to relax and focus the mind. Commonly used for meditation, relaxation, and recovery, these gentle sounds are unique because of their resonating low-frequencies.

Haven't used snooze yet.
I used to hit snooze every 9 minutes for well over an hour, even with an alarm which sounded like it was warning of an imminent air raid (complete with flashing LED lights). I've been using this app for a week and haven't hit snooze yet. The best part is I wake up calmly and happily, not startled awake and cursing at the sun. Definitely worth three hundred pennies.
Pretty good with a few bumps
I use the app most mornings to wake up and it works well. A couple of annoying things though. Even though I picked the "quiet" alarm setting, the alarm is a bit jarring. Also, I continue to get asked every fourth or fifth time to rate the app even though I choose to never rate the app (not zen to nag). Otherwise I like the app and prefer it to the built in alarm. Looking forward to a new version with improvements.
I like this app. It does wake me up peacefully. I would suggest to the developers to make it easier to keep the alarm on. If you activate the alarm and go back into settings the alarm turns off instead of remaining on. Another time I made a movement within the app the alarm turned off again. Otherwise it's pretty cool. I like the sequence and quotes. Adding a meditative sleep would be cool.
