About this app

Fake Dawn is an alarm clock that gradually increases brightness and sound volume to lead you out of deep sleep and wake you up gently.

You can adjust when the brightness of the screen starts to rise and reaches its maximum, when the sound starts to play and how the volume increases.

Features:
- fully customize the behavior of the dawn alarm
- choose the screen color from a wide range
- choose custom sound alarm or ring tone
- vibrate with sound

Cool idea, and it's free as in freedom, meaning no ads or sleazyness. My wishlist: I couldn't use MP3 files without copying them to the system alarms folder. Support for m3u playlists would be wonderful. The time entry sliders were a tad clunky, until I found out that you can enter the times by clicking the digits.

Works very well. I find that a "traditional" alarm clock leaves me with a head ache for the rest of the day. I love that I can be gently woken to the sounds of the 'dawn chorus', or waves rolling in on the beach.
