Works like a dream This app just hits the sweet spot for me. It has an elegant UI with nice looking graphics. You can customize the font, color, and brightness of the clock, and you can create as many alarms as you want, configured exactly how you want them. Most importantly for me, it has an emergency calling feature that only allows a call through if the same person calls 3 times in 5 minutes. The only negatives are that some of the settings are a bit confusing and, if you're not using a dock, you have to reset your desired brightness level each time you open the app. Overall, I found this app to be the perfect combination of simplicity, features, and aesthetics.
Hale alarm is fabulous. Lately, the app is acting very oddly. Lullaby feature doesn't work...I also get a static sound if I try to set the lullaby which I never got before. The alarm image seems to shrink and change positions all night long. Super irritating that this app doesn't have the same functionality it used to have. I have the hale docking station and I am not as happy as I was. Please fix these issues.--I could not live without t hi is app and alarm clock. Brilliant.
This is great app but is WAAAAY more complicated than it needs to be. After 3 nights of being awakened by a dog barking I finally figured out the method of controlling. Maybe if there was a manual that could be downloaded......OR maybe just make it simple. This is a perfect example of the KISS theory: Keep it simple, stupid.
Acting weird after a few weeks 3 times recently it has shut the lullaby off early because my phone was shutting down because it ran off the battery all night instead of charging like it should. Lucky the lack of the rain noise woke me up. Would have really made me mad if the silence hadn't woken me & I had been late to work. Have a backup.
Lollipop update I love this app, but ever since I updated my LG G3 to Lollipop there have been some problems with this app. Smart silence no longer works for me (notifications get through when it is on) and the volume knob on the dock now controls the ringer volume rather than music volume. If those two things were fixed I would have no problem giving this app 5 stars.
Skipping music I just got this hale dreamer for my galaxy note 2. It seemed great until I played music through it. I cannot get the music to play on the normal google player that came with the phone. until this is fixed I will use airstream because at least that works and doesn't skip. All other features are great. It does however discharge the battery badly. Seems like it only has a 1 amp charger when it needs a 2.5 to keep it from draining. Future fix requested.
1. full-screen clock display animation to prevent screen burnout for certain phone model, as a user configurable option (ON by default).
2. bug fix: long SmartSilence auto-reply text cuts off the 'OK' button.
3. bug fix: alarm fade-in timer starts after 3rd-party app
5. Android Lollipop robustness fix.
