➠ 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.

I like this app a lot; it works perfectly as long as you follow the instructions (phone can't be on silent/vibrate or in do not disturb mode). These limitations aren't the dev's fault, it's just the way third-party alarm apps work on iPhones. I would like it better if it were possible to have more than one alarm, so that I don't have to keep changing the time. I do really like that it's able to work while running in the background. Works like it's supposed to, reliable, and it's a less jarring way to wake up.
Great idea – poor product.
Unfortunately, this really nice concept of a Zen alarm clock has some design flaws that make it effectively nonfunctional. It doesn't work unless your phone is active and The app is in the foreground. (so, if you were doing something like reading on your Kindle app as you went to sleep, this app won't to be active, and won't wake you up.) It doesn't work if your phone is in the "do not disturb" mode. So basically unless you're actively using your phone, this alarm clock won't wake you up.
Wish I could find a way to get the money back guarantee – but that too seems to be a function that doesn't work.
Do not download this app. It does not work. I tested the alarm the night before by setting it to eleven minutes later to see if it would work and the test passed. However when I set the alarm for the next morning, it did not sound at all. The app screen showed "rise and shine" indicating that the sound should have gone off, but it didn't. My ringtone volume was set to max and do not disturb was off. I will be requesting a refund from via iTunes.
