Progressive Alarm Clock will wake you up gently and gradually using the beautiful sounds of the Tibetan singing bowl. At the specified alarm time, the bells will begin to ring in a pre-defined pattern - starting out softly and slowly and gradually getting louder and more frequent. You'll come out of your slumber slowly and peacefully. No more being jolted awake.

+ After setting the alarm, the app can be put in the background - allowing you to use other apps. At the specified alarm time, the alarm pattern will begin.

+ Choose from five pre-defined patterns with varying bell schedules and escalation lengths.

+ Choose from six different bells of varying size and metal compositions - from bright and clean to deep and complex with lovely overtones.

+ You may enter journal notes upon awakening - great for recording your dreams before the memory fades. You can then go back and review your journal entries and you may export the journal via email. For privacy, you may set a password to prevent unauthorized access.

+ To save battery, you may lock your device's screen and the alarm will still work. Either start the alarm and press the lock (sleep) button, or turn on the "Auto-Lock" setting.

One of the best apps I've ever bought


A lot of apps have problems from time to time. I've never had any problem with this app. I use it almost every day. I love that I can have three default time set, and that it goes off audibly even if the phone is on silent; not the same as turning the volume all the way down. It also has choices of a lot of tones.

Ultimately, I love waking up slowly and gently. I used to have a Zen alarm clock, which finally died after about 10 years. I replaced it with this app and love it. I'm a very deep sleeper, and if I have to be up by a very specific time, I just set the alarm ten minutes early. In the last few years, it's never taken more than 15 minutes to wake me up. I travel a lot for my job and have never missed a flight when I needed to be up early. It gently wakes me up no matter how tired I am.

My favorite alarm app, could use two small features

The other reviews have stated the reasons why this is such an amazing alarm app, I will agree and note that it is the best one that I have found to work for me. It lacks two small features that would be helpful: 1) instead of only having the ability to set the alarm for a specific time, to also have the ability to set the alarm on a timer (for example: 25 minutes). 2) Have the current time show up on the alarm setting page so the user doesn't have to switch back to see what time it is to set the alarm. If it had these two features it would be perfect, hopefully at some point they are added. Otherwise, I'm very happy to have found this app!

Best Alarm Clock Ever!


I'm nearly impossible to wake with any type of alarm clock, (I have broken many,) and this one works! The progression of gentle tones, rather than jarring alarm clock sounds, (although the failsafe would definitely wake up most people,) is a wonderful way to wake up. Whenever I have adapted too much to one singing bowl, I choose a different one. This is also a great app in my therapy practice, when I want to let people know our time is almost up, without an annoying alarm interrupting the session. The only thing that could make this app better is more singing bowl options.
