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...

PERMISSIONS: Gentle Alarm uses the following permissions...

* 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.

great gentle alarm clock There are lots of alarm clocks to wake up heavy sleepers but I'm a light sleeper so I really wanted something to wake up to nature sounds that slowly get louder. It's very customizable too so you can change how long it takes to get louder and many many other features. Just what I was looking for! Thanks!

by A Google User the 1/24/2013

Excellent. The UI could still use a little polish, but the functionality is amazing.

by A Google User the 1/24/2013

Best alarm app ever! Been using this app for 2 years now definitely worth the money.... The night clock is awesome and gets the job done also is great for customization!!

by A Google User the 1/23/2013

Seriously the best alarm clock app Great night clock (immediately comes on when screen is powered on rather than your lock screen, and aeroplane mode option). The unique pre-alarm is a nice feature worth trying (you can disable it if you don't want it - wins even without it). Good selection of nature sounds available as a free download if you want. Looks really good as well.

Best alarm app and support! Ppl are giving bad ratings be a useful of confusing menus and items they don't like, that if looked into can be turned off. Not only does this alarm work well, it is ridiculously customizable. True the menus can be a bit overwhelming at first, but they make sense after spending a little time. Great app and excellent support!

by A Google User the 1/19/2013

For 2 years +! This is the best thing I could ever use. Don't look for another. I already did That :-)

by A Google User the 1/19/2013

Highly functional I've used this app for six months and it has worked perfectly. The pro version lets you change regular alarm times for the next day without messing with the ordinary schedule. The quieter alarm that goes first helps keep you from getting jarred awake by the louder one.

The Best Alarm

by A Google User the 1/17/2013

Good, could be better When I first bought this app a few years ago, it was great, way ahead of any others of its time. Unfortunately, it hasn't improved substantially since then, and developer doesn't seem as responsive. I will try again to see if I can get a response to some feature requests and update my review accordingly.

Great alarm app This is great alarm app, can't imagine myself using normal alarm app after using this.
