• Auto-lock is now a global setting
• Increased dimness tolerance while in bedtime mode
• TuneIn login will no longer allow invalid credentials, preventing a blank station list from occurring
• Hardware bug fixes
Very good app (before last update). Use it every night to go to sleep with one playlist and wake up in the morning with another or Tunein. Not happy with latest update and its dimming problems, and see that I am not alone here. I am so used to pressing the lock screen button just before going to bed and thus blacking-out the entire screen. Otherwise, I am very pleased with the app.
Ver. 3.0.3 update is driving me crazy. Not very touch sensitive. I have several alarms set up for different days, and opening any one is quite difficult. Half the time the app tries to open a new alarm for the nearest hour. Have to delete that and try again. Just opening the list of alarms on the left or settings on the right is difficult. Last night after setting alarm the main screen showed "alarm next day" instead of "alarm in 8 hours." Alarm did not activate and I overslept. You can do better than this. PLEASE FIX!!
Used to be Good…
I bought this app a couple of years ago and at the time I loved it. I gave it a 5/5. Now, I barely use it.
Here's the problem. I used this app exclusively for tracking my sleep, not as an alarm, monitor, sleep efficiency, etc... I want to press sleep, wake, and log the amount of sleep I get. The first version was similar to this and worked really well for me.
Though the app included an alarm feature from the beginning, it was optional to use and I never did, but with this version I am unable to opt out of the alarm. I am forced set an alarm just to use the tracker- which is inconvenient. The way I went around this was to set the alarm for Sunday and use the app for a week, but it began to get glitchy and ruin the data on Sunday, showing that I woke up on Sunday at 5:00 p.m. (when I set the alarm) but I never went to sleep. I finally stopped using it because it just wasn't worth the struggle.
Roller coaster of updates
I'm on my second iHome alarm clock as I updated from an iPhone 4s to a 6 Plus. Yah... Thanks apple for the forced upgrade due to the lightning connector.
The App works fine as an alarm clock if you take the time to set it up right, but you better be sure to reset your phone once every couple of weeks at the least or you may end up with a missed alarm due to an issue with iOS. At least that's what seems to happen.
I've paid for all the updates along the way so any inclusion of adds docked or not is really lame. What did I pay for!?!?!?
Early on I talked to their tech support about the brightness of the app when docked at night. They didn't think there was an issue, because "I must have been doing something wrong."
Long story short... It got better until the last upgrade. Now I have a night light again even with the blackest background I can find. If I move the slider it resets to what it thinks should be the dimmest.
I keep hoping they will fix the issues and take care of their paying customers.
As it is I'm seriously thinking of trying something new.
