What's New in Version 1.6.3
This lets you turn the iPad into a travel alarm clock with easy to see numbers with options to make it a larger screen and even easier to see clock. If you use it at night, it allows you dim the clock to a night time mode. Many wake up features, my favorite is the wind chime with a volume setting for the alarm that for the alarm function. Then wake up to what I feel is a subtle alarm mode. There are louder and more alarming sounds available so you you pick what works for you. When I wake, it shows me the current temp and forecast for today and about a week with ability to brake down the daily temp and weather for the current day. The price is reasonable and worth the money. Many option on this that I haven't even played around with yet. Love it!
Beautiful, useful app--2 minor issues that need a small update.
Great alarm. App has a slideshow of beautiful pictures that tend to reflect time of day/weather. Pictures stay on when device is plugged in. Several choices on timing/transitions of slideshow. Weather and time display can be resized. (Of course you do need internet connection for weather.) 2 alarms--each has a backup. You can choose nature sounds or iTunes songs. Two complaints: I wish it were easier to select songs/playlists for the alarm. You can't just pick a genre or playlist. Each song must be selected individually. If you inadvertently add a song, you can't delete it. It's super easy to touch the wrong part of the screen while adding and then you have to start over. Second, some of the pictures that are referenced are unavailable, leading to lots of bright white blanks screens.
I really like this app. The gentle sounds of the wind chimes along with the lively pictures are so soothing and relaxing. I connected my iPhone to a docking station and used the app all night last night for the first time. Very pleasant and I slept very well. I like the dimmer option as I prefer a very dark room when I sleep. I always wake before any alarm has a chance to go off so I never set one therefore I don't know how well the alarm works on this app but everything else seems to work just as promised.
