This is the closest they come to a good alarm app. It lets you set an alarm for before or after the actual time, but it needs to have this separate so you get early notification for setting times and later notification for rising times. Unless your horizon is completely flat this is always the case. It also doesn't seem to take into account daylight savings time. Should make/add moon rise/set capability.
Pretty good app! I use this to determine when I have to go close up the chicken house at night, which is usually about 15 minutes after sundown. Any earlier the chickens are still out, any later and a possum or raccoon might kill one. This is convenient because it determines the alarm based not on time, but on a phase of the Sun. I would recommend it to anyone who forgets to do tasks at certain sun phases like me!
I've tried to install this on my Galaxy 5 several times now (on separate occasions spread out by a few months). It says it's downloaded and installed, but it doesn't show up in my app list or as an icon. Very disappointing.
Very Good Good selection of sun phases. Would like a bedtime notification based on when I get up. If you increased the time offset to +/- 12hrs and changed the slider to more precise numeric input, it would meet my needs. I was wondering when someone would create this type of alarm - good job!
Great but a few items It is good overall but there are two points that I struggle with. The alarms are invasive. A simple & QUIET chime would be nice. When I use the alarm I start to hate this app too much. In an earlier version the notifications would actually chime for about 30 seconds on my phone. This was perfect, as I could use it all day. The other point is some inconsistencies on the display of the next event, but this doesn't result in missed notifications.
This alarm would be great, if it worked consistently. We wanted an alarm to remind us of dusk, so we could go close up the chicken coop to keep out evening/night predators. Sometimes it goes off at dusk, sometimes it doesn't go off. Sometimes it goes off in the middle of the night. It seems if I am carrying the phone, and so it is active due to my motion, it works consistently. But if its just sitting on a table or a charger, its inconsistent. Frustrating. Deleting and looking for a better answer.
v1.73 Fixed Bug that caused the APP to crash, when the alarm fires.
v1.7 Added new Sound selection when adding alarms, you can now use any mp3,sound when creating an alarm just add mp3/sound files your Ringtones Folder on your Phone. Also fixed some bugs. PLEASE RE-DO YOUR ALARMS AFTER THIS UPDATE. AS IT CLEARS ALL EXISTING ALARMS.Thanks You
