Nightstand Central Alarm Clock

"Best Alarm Clock App" -


With music alarms, a built-in sleep timer, weather info, customizable photo backgrounds, and even an included shake-on / shake-off flashlight, Nightstand Central turns your device into the ultimate bedside hub.

Wake up to your favorite tunes and drift into sleep a little easier with the included sleep timer. You can play everything from music playlists to relaxing sounds. If you need to get up in the middle of the night, just shake to toggle the included flashlight, and shake again to turn it off. And when you wake up, see the current weather conditions before you even get out of bed.

Nightstand Central is equally at home away from the bedside, as well. Stand your device on a desk or coffee table and use it as a beautiful photo frame with heads-up time and weather information.

Almost everything about Nightstand Central can be tweaked to fit your personality, for example:
-Pick wallpapers from your Photo Album and Nightstand Central will automatically cycle the background image among these how ever often you'd like. You can mix and match your own photos and any of the gorgeous included wallpapers, as well.
-Set up different music alarm playlists for different days. You can even make your alarm gently fade in - it's all up to you.
-Configure the clock / weather HUD to make it bigger, smaller, centered, or move it off to one side or the other

So throw away your boring, standalone alarm clock, and replace it with something that truly stands out - Nightstand Central.

App is useless now


Thomas and his team have worked tirelessly to make the app work again despite iOS 11 being difficult to work with.

I have use the app reliably now for over a week. I trust this app that wake me up every day and it is amazing. I especially appreciate the feature that makes the app gently increase volume so I am not jarred out of bed.

Thank you Thomas.


The app still does not work even after the recent bug fix. Exact same issues, alarm does not go off. You receive a text notification that your alarm is “Sounding” but there is no audible alarm. I have tried every conceivable fix... volume control, changing the alarms from music to tone, uninstalling and reinstalling the app, resetting my iPhone etc.

Bottom line is that this app (which used to be wonderful) absolutely positively does not work with the latest iOS.

Unless and until these issues are resolved you will literally be throwing your money away.

To be fair, every other alarm app seems to be having the same problems. Clearly Apple isn’t helping the developers of these apps.

Not to pile on, but I feel compelled to agree with other users.

This was my favorite app for over a year. I used it daily. My only criticism is that you had to have the app in the foreground for it to work, but other than that it was flawless.

Since iOS 11 it literally does not work.

Do not purchase this app until they have fixed this issue. You will be wasting your money.

Great alarm app!

Great alarm app! I like the different functionalities that this app has to offer. There are several different options that you can choose from. I like the variation in different options for the snooze timer. Most other timers don't have that option. I wished it would have greater access to local or my pictures to be used as a background. Great job on the updates. Keep the updates coming!

Stands ALONE! - BEST alarm in the App Store

Thank you to the developer for yet another awesome update! I am a long time user and rely solely on this app to wake me up gently. I love the fade in alarm sound that I customize. Intuitive and gorgeous! I really enjoy my photos that I have set running in the background and how Nightstand Central's face is more transparent with this update. And I love how simple it is to use. What's not to love!!
