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.


* RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: So it can activate an alarm after you reboot the phone. After reboot, all alarms of all apps are cancelled by default.

* WAKE_LOCK: So the phone can stay on while playing an alarm or while displaying the night display.

* DISABLE_KEYGUARD: When the alarm rings, you don't have to unlock the phone to be able to turn the alarm off.

* VIBRATE: obvious

* WRITE_SETTINGS: It adjusts some system settings such as airplane mode, silent mode, etc.

* WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: It logs some data on your SD card.

* READ_PHONE_STATE: So it can turn off the alarm when the phone rings and prevent an alarm from ringing while you are talking on the phone.

* READ_LOGS: So you can send me debug data (if you choose to)

* INTERNET: So that I can display ads (trial version only). Also, if the app crashes, it offers to send me a debug report directly to my servers. The app will politely ask you if you want to send that data or not. If you do, it needs an internet connection. If not, it doesn't but I still need the permission in the app because you may want to send the debug data.

Best alarm clock

by A Google User the 11/6/2013

Please update for android 4.4 I have used the app for a long time but since using it on my nexus 5 it has not worked properly and caused the phone to crash at times. Please update.

by A Google User the 11/2/2013

Great Clock. Thanks for making my morning's better. I bought this app mostly as a timer. But one day I used the fade in feature to wake me in the morning. I generally hate alarm clocks as blasting me out of a fine slumber always ruins my day. But the gentle alarm is different. Its hard to describe how it works. It's more like a trickle of sound starts to wake you up. You begin to hear something far away from you and your not sure what it is but as you become more aware you realize its your alarm. And then your awake! Highly recommended. Great product. Thx.

Works really well Yeah. Like others, I'm really surprised about how well the gentle wake up feature works. I am less grumpy in the morning and that says a lot. Worth the few dollars.

by A Google User the 11/1/2013

Doesn't work all the time Sometimes it plays the song I selected for the alarm, sometimes it uses a harsh alarm sound, and other times it makes no noise at all. It is not reliable. Uninstalled.

by A Google User the 10/20/2013

Works well Good app, I use it to wake me gently in the mornings and also use the Night Mode to stop notifications from waking me up while I'm asleep. I wish there was a way to make a shortcut to jump directly to Night Mode though, e.g. using QuickShortcutMaker.

by A Google User the 10/18/2013

Great! Great way to wake up in the morning! I like that there are so many justifications you can do to personalise it. I always wake up to the rowing boat :-)

by A Google User the 10/16/2013

Most useful I have Without a doubt the most useful app that I have. Multiple alarms at regular intervals with different tones and fade ins. I would forget so much without this app. Easily worth $10 to $20. Can't recall what I paid for it, but I love it. Many features I haven't even thought of using yet.

by A Google User the 10/10/2013

Excellent I recommend trying out the Pre-Alarm feature if you want to wake up feeling more rested and less irritable. If configured to your sleep style, it helps prevent an abrasive wake-up during an REM phase of your sleep cycle.

by A Google User the 10/9/2013

Great app Used the pre alarm - I feel rested and I'm liking it so far. Will try using it with sleep bot - looking forward to testing this out more.
