Your light will start about 20 minutes before wake-up time at minimum brightness and then slowly increase towards your wake-up time. When your alarm rings you will wake up smooth and naturally.
This app will also play sounds from the nature, which increases in volume in sync with screen brightness. This helps you wake up even more easily!
New: You can now choose what color the wake-up light should be!
NOTE: This app works best when used on devices with large, bright displays. Tablets are perfect! I've tested the app myself with the Samsung Galaxy 10.1, Nexus 7 and other tablets and it works great!
Several new features are planned, stay tuned!
You can configure how long before your alarm rings the light should start. A good value here is about 20-30 minutes.
Connect your device to a charger to avoid draining the battery.
Please send me an e-mail if this app does not work on your device or if you got a suggestion for an improvement.
Note: It's not recommended to use custom screen locker apps together with this app, as they may conflict with each other.
'Personal Sunrise' is a dawn simulator for Android devices. It helps to wake up more easily in the morning, as your body prepares for wakeup due to the increasing light of the display.
Wikipedia says "Dawn simulation is a technique originally developed to help treat seasonal affective disorder, but can be used as a soundless alarm clock to wake up the body naturally. Typically, the treatment involves timing lights in the bedroom to come on gradually, over a period of 30 minutes to 2 hours, before awakening.". WakeLight offers you several configuration options for the light simulation (sequence length, brightness curve, min/max brightness) and the sound (alarm sound, snooze timing and sound) in combination with the comfort of periodic alarm templates (with single-alarm removal), and of course single-alarm times. See the pictures. This app is very handy when you're travelling: take your dawn simulation with you!
It was intended to be used with tablets of at least 7 inches, but I have enough positive feedback of users with even smaller devices to be able to state it can be good to try with such a small device.It depends on your light sensitivity, of course, and the brightness of your environment - but you will be astonished as it works subconscious. Just try, I think you will not regret it.
- alarm templates for repetition as well as one-time alarms
- alarm tone can be internal tones, ringtones, playlists, external music and music stream from the internet
- disable or change alarm time even of a one-time alarm of a template
- brightness, duration and sounds configurable, some sounds contained in the package
- optional display of weather forecast and sunrise/set times (using the free plugin downloadable from the shop)
- clean and easy-to-use user interface
- optionally display a clock with automatic brightness control (in case a brightness sensor is available) that gets brighter when touched
- optional text-to-speech reading of the actual time during the alarm
- external apps can set alarms using the standard intent, for example Google Now "wake me up at 6:30"
- and much more...
A few words concerning privacy: 'Personal Sunrise' does not collect any data and does neither use nor require a network! To play an (optionally) chosen radio stream, and (optionally) the weather forecast, you need to install the free plugin. The only data that is sent by my app is your location (latitude/longitude) if required for the weather forecast - you can even manually enter them and fake the last one or two decimals of the data if you like.

Warmly is a simple, friendly way to start your day.
Wake up gently with the calm sounds of weather and something you enjoy (like cooking breakfast, brewing coffee, or catching a plane). Just set the time you want to get up and Warmly will plan ahead to make stepping out of bed enjoyable.
A few minutes before your alarm is set to go off, Warmly will get the weather for your location and begin quietly playing ambient sounds. Warmly starts out silent and very gradually turns up the volume so you'll wake up naturally to the sounds of the day and the activity you selected.
Warmly is great as a motivational alarm clock that gets you out of bed naturally. Get a great night's sleep and wake up ready to do awesome things!
Some users have experienced issues with their phones not waking from sleep to allow the alarm to go off. You may want to set a backup alarm just in case for the first couple days to make sure your device isn't affected.
We're continuing to look into the issue. Thanks for your patience. If it continues to not work for you, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT WARMLY
Warmly is unlike other alarm clocks; it's designed to be super simple and encourage healthy sleep habits.
– Warmly slowly fades in over 5 minutes. This is great to wake up to, but a bit tricky to test by setting the alarm a minute from now and tapping ok.
– Warmly has a persistent notification so you know when the alarm is set. This is the suggested android model for alarm clocks, but some may find it annoying. We're sorry.
HOW TO CHANGE FROM °F TO °C
When the alarm goes off, simply tap on the temperature to toggle between °F and °C. Presto! And your selection will be remembered for next time.
– Select from 9 activity sound tracks to start your day: making breakfast, having coffee, cartoon news, working out, zen meditation, a cat, a dog, flying at the airport, and taking a train or subway.
– Press and hold on an activity to preview the track.
– Integrated local weather when your alarm begins to fade in.
– Slow wake-up gradually turns up the volume of weather and activity audio over time.
– Simple user interface makes setting the time and selecting activities fast and intuitive.
– Change between Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature view by tapping on the weather information.
– Vibration used as a last resort, in case you leave your headphones plugged in.
– 12-hour and 24-hour clock mode support.
– Snooze (9 min increments) while alarm is sounding.
– Nice to neighbors: auto-silence after 15 minutes of loudest alarm (in case you leave it on and aren't around).
Warmly is built with love by The Chaos Collective in Seattle, Wa. and Luxembourg.

Sleep Better with Runtastic: Because great nights lead to great days!
This gorgeous software softly wakes you up. It turns on the screen 30 mins before the alarm with the darkest screen and increases slowly the brightness.
--- /!\ All the features of this software are usable, but an in app purchase allows you to customize everything ! (From only 1€) ---
In the middle of the process it can play birds sound, and if you didn’t wake up 1 minute after alarm time, it plays a strong sound to be sure you don’t miss. It also let the phone check the emails by turning the notification sound off and internet on. So when you wake up, you don’t have to wait to know what’s new :)
If you sleep in a dark room it really wakes you up with the light, and if the phone points at you, your wife doesn’t wake up !
One more thing: This alarmclock is able to turn your phone in a "night mode" the evening, and turn back in day mode the morning. And so it shuts down the notification sound, internet, lower the brightness...
***FOR ANY BUG, PLEASE SEND ME A "BUG REPORT" (menu/bug report). THANK YOU !!***
For those who care, here is the explanation of the authorizations:
To open or close wifi, the evening or in the morning.
To turn on your phone and change the brightness of the screen, to keep the phone on.

Sleep Cycle works in two modes:
- Fixed Wake-up: Allows you to set your desired time to wake up, and suggests the optimal times to go to sleep based on your input.
- Sleep Now: When you're feeling tired and want to go to bed right away, this mode will display the best times to set your alarm clock to, based on your device's current time.
How to lose weight and fat by reducing the cortisol-level.
"Sleep Cycle Weight Loss Alarm Clock", a patented, unique and easy to use sleep-cycle-alarm-clock reduces morning - cortisol.
Developed by a neuro-scientist, this patented sensor-free sleep cycle alarm clock will redefine the way that you wake-up from your sleep and lose fat and weight.
Every night, this patented and unique sleep cycle app calibrates itself, it’s constantly working whilst you sleep to fine-tune your alarm. You can not make mistakes when you`re using this app.
The patented Sleep Cycle Weight Loss Alarm Clock reduces your morning cortisol - peak by waking you up at the most suitable time according to your personal sleep pattern.
"Eliminate cortisol", the best kept secret about loosing weight.
New scientific studies give evidence that morning alarm clock induced stress affects blood - cortisol, weight, skeletal muscle mass and health.
The wake-up call of a conventional alarm clock puts the body under unhealthy stress and a cortisol - peak, resulting in weight gain.
Conventional alarm clocks causes serious health problems.
And researchers have linked the morning hours to a higher incident of heart attacks and strokes.
Higher levels of cortisol in the bloodstream have negative effects: weight gain, depression, suppressed thyroid function, blood sugar imbalances, decreased bone density, skeletal muscle wasting, high blood pressure, lowered immunity, impaired erectile function, menstrual abnormalities, fatigue, headache, fibromyalgia, muscle pain, poor digestion, oily skin, acne and eczema. Elevated cortisol also leads to wrinkles, sagging and impaired wound healing. Elevated cortisol in pregnant mothers influences cortisol metabolism during the baby's crucial development periods. And: Cortisol is what makes us fat.
This patented Sleep Cycle Weight Loss Alarm Clock is a new generation sleep cycle alarm clock that requires no sensors (worldwide first sensor free sleep cycle alarm clock), in-fact, all you need is your phone by the side of your bed and the alarm clock shall be used conventionally.
This innovative patented alarm clock is constantly re-adjusting to your personal sleeping habits, looking for the smallest details which it integrates into it’s complex algorithm that it simply uses your sleep information to customize your ‘wake-up’ experience. The more you use the application, the more accurate it becomes and the more weight you lose.
Connect your phone to power, set the alarm and activate the patented application - you will feel results on the first morning. Slide your finger across the glass to deactivate the alarm in the morning.
In fact, a Yale University study showed that even otherwise - slim persons who are under high stress levels are prone to put on weight on around their abdominal area. Cortisol has been proven to encourage fat storage in the abdominal area. The worst part is if we don't alleviate stress, cortisol levels stay high even when the origin al source of stress has subsided.
The effects of cortisol will cause even more fatty deposits to find their way to your middle even when the stress seems to have passed. Obese persons have significantly higher urinary free cortisol excretion than normal-weight persons.
Is your morning cortisol elevated?
This new and science based Sleepcycle - Weight Loss Alarm Clock is the best way to eradicate morning - cortisol and to lose weight.
Reduced cortisol results in improved fertility, improved erectile function and more skeletal muscle mass.
***** "For me, this alarm clock is here to stay. It has increased my quality of life considerably".

Are you using your smart phone or tablet in the late evening? Twilight may be a solution for you!
Recent research suggests that exposure to blue light before sleep may distort your natural (circadian) rhythm and cause inability to fall asleep.
The cause is the photoreceptor in your eyes, called Melanopsin. This receptor is sensitive to a narrow band of blue light in the 460-480nm range which may suppress Melatonin production - a hormone responsible for your healthy sleep-wake cycles.
In experimental scientific studies it has been shown an average person reading on a tablet or smart phone for a couple of hours before bed time may find their sleep delayed by about an hour.
The Twilight app makes your device screen adapt to the time of the day. It filters the flux of blue light emitted by your phone or tablet after sunset and protects your eyes with a soft and pleasant red filter. The filter intensity is smoothly adjusted to the sun cycle based on your local sunset and sunrise times.
Get more from Twilight
1) Bed reading: Twilight is more pleasant on the eyes for night reading. Especially as it is able to lower the screen backlight far below the ability of the backligt controls on your screen
2) AMOLED screens: We have tested Twilight on an AMOLED screen for 2.5 years without any sign of depletion or over-burning. If properly configured Twilight causes less light emission (by enabling dimming) with more equal light distribution (dark areas of the screen such as the status bar get tinted). This may in fact increase your AMOLED screen life time.
Basics on circadian rhythm and the role of melatonin
- location - to find out your current sunset/surise times
- running apps - to stop Twilight in selected apps
- write settings - to set back-light
- network - access smartlight (Philips HUE) to shield you household light from blue

Version 4 removes ads.
Sleep Cycles provides an interface to find the perfect time to fall asleep or wake up. It utilizes researched methods to decide the optimal time to setup alarms.
By using the proper sleep cycle at night, you will feel more refreshed when you wake up. Your body is typically already in a half awake state during a REM cycle. This application just calculates when these typically occur!
You can decide when to fall asleep, based on a wakeup time specified by you. Assuming your phone has the ability, it can also setup alarms to remind you to start heading to sleep and one to wake up.
You can tell it you're heading to sleep now, and it will assume you need ~15 minutes to goto sleep. It will list the best times for you to wake up, and also provides the ability to set alarms for any of these times.
This works for me, I just needed it Androidized.
We did big significant improvements for the sleep cycle tracker, It track your sleep cycle every day with astonished chart graphic,just put your phone next or under your pillow, it will tracking your sleep as magic device,and you can record moods and notes for every night.

With this app you can set an alarm to wake you up at the point when you will feel more refreshed.
Every time you sleep, you enter into a series of sleep cycles that last for around 90 minutes. A good night's sleep consists of 5-6 complete sleep cycles. Waking up in the middle of a sleep cycle leaves you feeling tired. The goal is to wake up about at the end of a cycle. This helps you feel refreshed and alert with a clear mind.
The app supports calculating when to wake up, when to go to sleep, and when to wake up if you sleep now. You can then set up an alarm to wake up at the right time. You can even input how long it normally takes you to fall asleep, and setting the minutes you need before falling asleep.
