An alarm clock shouldn't shell-shock you out of your dreams. That's why I
created Gentle Alarm which tries to wake you up during light sleep
using an optional pre-alarm.
Alarm clocks can't know if you are in light sleep or deep sleep (those
movement based alarm clock don't work) but they can play a very quiet
pre-alarm which you will only hear if you are in light sleep. If you are
in deep sleep, you will simply sleep through the pre-alarm.
The pre-alarm plays 30min before you really want to get up (you can
change that). If the pre-alarm wakes you up, you will be more refreshed
than if you had slept until the main alarm because at that time you
would have fallen back into deep sleep. Give it a try and I am sure you
won't want to miss it anymore.
Of course, the app has all the usual features of a great alarm clock:
It can switch to a night display automatically when docking the phone.
It can automatically shorten the snooze time with each time you press
snooze. It can automatically create playlists of your favorite artist or
genre. And it allows you to change colors, fonts, and backgrounds.
Gentle Alarm is still being actively improved. Lots of new features to come over the next few months...
