    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.

    I wanted an app so it would wake me up to the music from my google play list. I installed the trial version and guess what it needed the full version for me to try and see if its internet stream8ng function worked. So, I am forced to pay and guess what it does not work at all. I wasted money on stupid app that does the same thing that my preinstalled free clock app does!!!!!

    I've been using and enjoying this apl for a couple years, but now the alarms have stopped working entirely. It looks like the app is no longer maintained, so I'll have to find another one.

    Best alarm I have found yet. Only way to make it better would be to have a bi-weekly setting so I could set my alarm to match my schedule where I get every other Friday off. Being able to alternate weeks between 4 and 5 days of alarm would be handy.

    The alarm, for some reason, only goes off in my car, despite being set HOURS away from any time I would be driving. On top of that, the cancellation function doesn't work - it ONLY snoozes. If I didn't set the alarms to turn off after a time, they'd go on forever (or at least until I uninstalled the app) What the hell is going on with this thing?

    This has been my only alarm app for years. Unfortunately the developer was injured and isn't updating much. The app doesn't seem to work with storage access framework so things like a custom photo background in an alarm don't work. But, it's still so useful that I'll keep using it until it truly breaks.
