Rise & Shine

By Peter Matthews

Rise & Shine allows your iPhone wake you up in a more natural manner.

Or maybe you don’t like waking up with a jolt to the sound of your alarm every morning!

Rise & Shine also has all the usual functions of a normal alarm clock and more:

Fade up light slowly to wake you in a more natural manner – can be set to fade up to 60 minutes before alarm

Flash light rapidly to wake you without the need for a loud alarm

Choose from your photo library and wake up to the image of a loved one!

Choose from 20+ built in sounds or create a playlist from your iPod music to wake up to.

Features a large LCD clock display with details of the next alarm - just touch the screen to see what it happening now and what will happen next.

Choose from nine different clock colors

Portrait and Landscape modes.

Ambient, Standard, Music and Seasonal

Option to fade up sound over 60 mins

Torch mode – just shake the device and it becomes a torch

Vibrate mode

Snooze – 5 minute snooze mode can be enabled

This application MUST run in the foreground. It is recommended you keep your device plugged in due to the time the application will be running.

Customer Reviews


I wanted to like this. I had a dawn simulator once and miss it, but it doesn't really do the trick. Also, landscape mode is upside down for most iPhone cases with a stand built in. I wrote the author, who promptly ignored me. Oh, well. I'll keep looking...


How do i get a refund?

Great little dawn simulator

Took me a little bit to figure out how to use thing but I really like it. I had been looking at $100 dawn simulator alarm clocks on Amazon so went to see if they had some apps to check out. Found this one and gave it a while. The only trick was finding out that after saving the alarm I set I had to hit the alarm "button" on the bottom right to put it in alarm mode. Like all the options in the $2 version so went ahead and got it. Thanks guys!
