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 / Skyscape / Transparent (live camera.) Swipe to change the clock background and dim the screen by sliding up or down.

Simply the Best
Where to start? This alarm clock is packed with so many features that are useful and not a gimmick. Of course it lets you choose your own music to wake up or use the built in sounds which sound great.
You slide your finger across the screen to turn on or off the alarm. When the alarm sounds, you simply touch the screen to mute it and activate the snooze feature.
When you turn on the alarm and lay the phone down, it reverts to the current time and the screen auto dims after a few seconds.
Yes, you can set multiple alarms and create reoccurring alarms such as weekends or weekdays and name them. The alarm sound or music can fade in and vibrate your phone if you like.
This alarm clock is ultra reliable and works every time. You won't be disappointed, I promise you. Now hit the buy button.
Elegant but unreliable
I love the concept and the design. However, I have two complaints with it. The first minor complaint is that it's sometimes very difficult to get it to set to the time I want. It seems to be so sensitive to swiping that if I happen to move my finger vertically one nanometer when I lift it off of the screen after setting the time, the set time will change. It's not a huge deal, but there it is.
The second, and far more troubling issue is that it seems to be getting increasingly unreliable. Nowadays, roughly 50% of the time, the alarm doesn't sound. If any notifications happen to steal the foreground, then there's no alarm. I awaken late to find the screen on my iPad on and the Rise icon jumping up and down but no sound. I can't depend on this app if I really need to wake up at a specific time to avoid missing something important. PLEASE fix this!
Nice alarm, but
The hype for this alarm is incredible, the nice videos, the nice reviews. It is almost too good to be true. That’s because if you want all the bells and whistle you have to pay twice the asking price with in-app purchases. Out of the box you get one alarm and several pleasing tunes. In order to get multiple alarms and more ring tones you have to fork over another $2. One other flaw is that if you turn off the sound so you don’t get dinged all night with incoming emails, you also don’t get any sound from Rise. With Apple’s default alarm, it will sound even if you have the sound turned off.
To give them credit, it is very nicely designed, but I still feel a bit ripped off.
