TIME TO ENJOY SETTING YOUR ALARM CLOCK
Reach out and touch the screen. Every element is meant to be interactive. Left handed? Yes, Rise loves you, too.
Pull it up or down and watch the sky change as you pick a wake up time. Turn the alarm on by pulling the screen left or right.
Or, simply shake your device to quickly set an alarm for a short nap or to use as a timer.
WAKING UP IS A BEAUTIFUL THING
Wake up to the sound of the woods, ease into the day with a custom Rise melody, or your favorite song from iTunes.
Tap to snooze and be a little late, or pull the screen to turn off the alarm and be on time. Hey, it's your life.
From the lock screen: Shake to snooze or turn off the alarm.
MULTIPLE ALARMS HAVE NEVER BEEN THIS EASY (With in-app purchase)
Easily create repeating alarms for any time with custom labels for each alarm. Toggle all your alarms on or off from one screen. Rise will always show the next alarm when you open the app.
A BETTER ALARM NEEDS A BETTER CLOCK
Large clock in either portrait or landscape (for docked devices) with clock background options: Night or Skyscape. Swipe to change the clock background and dim the screen by sliding up or down.
LET RISE HELP YOU FALL (ASLEEP)
Use SleepTunes to make a playlist from your iTunes collection to help you fall asleep. Set a timer for your playlist so it doesn't run all night.

No longer works
I just missed another appointment because my Rise alarm failed to sound. The developers move to Swift has been disastrous. The app fails to function as an alarm clock at all.
Rise has always been a little idiosyncratic: the UI is well intentioned but confusing (I often accidentally turn off recurring alarms when I merely meant to stop an alarm from going off — Rise makes snoozing an alarm easy but turning it off very difficult). The great redeemer of Rise has been the wonderful alarm sounds that come with the app.
Now, however, while you can still snooze an alarm from the notification, the app crashes if you try to turn the alarm off. The only solution is to delete the app and reinstall it. Unacceptable!
Going downhill fast
I got this app a few years ago and really liked it. Now it will be deleted from my iPhone because it is terrible. It had a few quirks when I first got it, but they were all manageable. Now in the past year, the developers have fiddled with it so much that it is totally unreliable. I wouldn't recommend using it to wake up when you have an early flight to catch, because half the time it doesn't work at all. It used to work fine if the app was open but in the background. Then they changed it so the app had to be open, yet even when it IS open, the alarm does not go off. This morning I overslept becasue the alarm never came on. No thanks; I'm going back to the iPhone alarm.
Great in Theory, Not in Practice
I really, really want to like this app. I love the dimmable clock that shows how much time until your alarm goes off. But I have to agree with a lot of other reviewers: it is often "buggy" and unreliable. For some odd reason, if I set the alarm for 6:00 am, it goes off at 5:58. If my iPhone does an automatic update during the night, the alarm resets itself to default settings--no alarm! And it does have to be open all night...not such a problem if you're plugged in, but a mighty big battery drain if you're not.
