This app is very good. It is extremely useful. I enjoy waking up to the birds, personally, and due to a sleep disorder, I don't think it would be wise for me to be listening to flowing water while in bed asleep. I wake up feeling refreshed, and enjoy analysing the depth of my sleep. The ads are irritating, but can be bypassed.
Wakes me up gently, like magic! The best motion-tracking alarm I've tried, hands down. Thank you so much for keeping it free.
Now, either I'm missing something obvious here, or the little "set alarm time" widget (seen as the first screenshot here) was created with the explicit goal of looking rather nice but ultimately being completely useless. The 'minimum' time you can drag the clock time to is the present time. One notch below that, and it skips 12 hours. Let me explain; let's say it's 1:30pm and I want to do something craaazy like set an alarm for 8:30am... I know, nuts, but bear with me. Now you might think I can just drag the little notch from 1:30pm(13:30 as it displays) down 5 hours to 8:30... But no. Apparently this 24hr clock only supports a 12 hour window. If I drag it down from 13:30, instead of it going 12, 11, 10 and so on, it goes directly to 1:30am... So if you happen to be using this app AFTER the time you'd like it to wake you up, then you're fresh out of luck! This is the dumbest user experience I've ever had in an app. It's absolutely ridiculous.
I do not mind seeing ads when it provides this beautiful function for free. But I do mind when the ad is placed between the start button and the actual start and the next morning when I woke up late and found it did not alarm because it was on the ad page and never started.
It's not bad, but if I happen to unplug my phone after its gone off once (and I just let it snooze) it does not go off again, which defeats the point of using the snooze feature. So it obviously has to be plugged in right up until you hold the off button.
I love it. My sister recommended it, because it was the only app that actually woke her up and it's the same with me.
