By Augmented Minds
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Wave Alarm is not your ordinary alarm clock application. Wave Alarm is something new... Wave Alarm features Motion Control technology, a new way to wake up in the morning. With Wave Alarm, you never have to touch your phone to silence or snooze, just wave off the alarm! No more fumbling around for your phone in the dark just to turn off the alarm, a simple gesture and Wave Alarm will silence or snooze it for you!
How it works:
Wave Alarm is a revolutionary Alarm Clock application that will change the way you wake up! Utilizing Motion Control and detection, you never need to touch your phone again in the morning to turn off the alarm or to snooze, just wave your hand over the device when the alarm is sounding, and Wave Alarm will snooze or silence the alarm for you!
Besides revolutionary motion control, wave alarm features:
Beautiful, modern interface with both analog and digital features
10 Beautiful alarms sounds to choose from
Ability to wake up to music from your iPod library
Background alarms, so you never miss a wake up
Try Wave Alarm and you wont go back to those ordinary alarm clock apps ever again!
Due to multitasking limitations, Wave Alarm must be running in the foreground for Motion Detection and MUSIC alarms. Please remember to leave the app open when you go to bed. However, in case you forget to open the app, the Digital alarm will play and notify you (a.k.a. Background Alarms).
Motion Detection requires a front facing camera.
What's New in Version 2.3.5
Fix bug where weather was not displaying correctly
The app works fine. Waving my hand in front of the phone has worked flawlessly each time I've tried it. The only glitch is that it screws with the phones brightness settings. I dim the phone to the lowest level at night. After I disable the alarm when waking up in the morning, the app brightens to the maximum as well as brightens the entire phone's settings to the maximum lighting up my entire bedroom. I don't want that.
Additionally, while tinkering with the app (during the day), I'll have the phone's brightness at the maximum. Unlike in the morning, I have to actually brighten the app manually each time because it's dim.
SUMMARY: The apps brightness level should be the same as set in the phone's settings unless changed manually by the user.
Great app and display
I like the app. Like the display. Clever design to denote the hour and minutes. Upgraded to the paid version so I can do more than one alarm. Like the wave gesture to shut it off though that doesn't seem to always work. But hitting the home button works too.
My only wish for the perfect alarm clock app would be (1) allow An option to start the app as soon as you dock it so when you go to bed at night and plug it in or dock it voila your alarm clock is there ready to go. (2) to alleviate the clock app auto starting during the day every time you plug it in, build another option to set a 'night' time period when the auto start will take place upon docking.
I had an app that had these features two phones ago and have not found those features since.
Do not purchase!
Paid a while back and the app worked fine. After I upgraded to iPhone 6s+ I reinstalled the app on my new phone. Tried restoring purchase and it never restored. I've emailed their support twice now and never got a response. Don't waste your money, there are other apps out there.
Other observations, the motion gestures don't work well and the weather fails to update regularly. Also, the display doesn't reliably turn as you rotate the phone and will sometimes turn bit not recenter and looks off.
