Good way to greet the morning
Intriguing: wake with weather, headlines, traffic info, and more.
Great idea, with features a plenty: you can choose a variety of local images as backgrounds, customize the display, and even choose your favorite local ABC7 personality to wake you up with a prerecorded message. Can't beat the price, either: free. A winner, right? Alas, three issues sidelined this one: the clock is pretty small; it doesn't support landscape mode; and it has no dimmer. That glare all night is a bit harsh to sleep by. While a great app to wake to, not really a bedside companion.
There is a dimmer!
To the reviewer who claims there is no dimmer - it can be found under appearance in the setup of the alarms!
