Allow me to start by saying that although this app is in the testing phase, I was still remarkably impressed with the functionality and even more so with the response of the creator to any questions and feedback. If you have difficulty waking up and starting your day, this is most definitely an app that you should without a doubt be installing.
The innovative app is available on Google play store and downloads instantly. While there are a few in-app purchases for a number of other functions, you can download and use the app as is. The in-app purchases are really cosmetic and an effective way for you to personalize your Gentle Wake Up Alarm. Once downloaded on the device of your choice, the compatible app starts off with an easy to follow instruction video. The video covers all the essential functions, the settings, and a few additional preference settings.
Now imagine this, waking up slowly, the gradual rise of the sun rousing you from a deep sleep. Like that innovative idea? Then simply download the developed Gentle Wakeup app. With a few ordinary settings, the alarm simulates the sunrise, meaning that for 20 minutes before the alarm is set to go off, the light will start slowing increasing brightening the room, gently rousing you from your sleep. What I found absolutely brilliant was I was able to use my phone as a night light too. While I like that the room was slightly illuminated throughout the night but equally has a number of settings allow you to turn off and limit the night. Another invaluable addition to the sunrise setting, are the typical alarm functions like vibration and sound.
Another significant feature is that the digits are bold and clear. Easily visible without having to put on my glasses to observe the time. There are, in addition, a number of other functions like snoozing, a sleep timer and my FAVORITE, the power napping function.
The icons are clear, and the layout is extremely easy to use. Instructions are explicit, and the go-to instruction video allows you to maximize on the potential of the alarm clock. There are a number of sounds included, however, you can personalize your clock with your own settings and in-app purchase. I personally like the motivational music, combined with the gentle wake up light has presented me a whole new start to the day. While my alarm function on my device has consistently worked and been effective, without my blaring alarm I get to arrive my day off less intrusive. At the present moment, I am not being ripped from my sleep but gently roused. You will be amazed at the difference this makes. Another key function is the weather forecast which has most definitely given me the upper hand when it comes to dressing for my day.
While I have already gotten great use out of my Gentle Wake Up alarm, I still have a considerable number of specific functions to check out. This is one app that has been created to serve a number of other purposes and a diverse community of users with functions to accommodate a number of users. A great app with enormous potential.
