    Glimmer (luminous alarm clock)'s review

    Published: 2015-03-19, by .

    Wake up gradually with sound and light.

    7.8
    • Slowly wake up
    • Light alarm
    • Gradual alarm
    • Limited sound customizations

    "Make Every Day Feel Alarm Free"

    THE VERDICT

    The Glimmer app lets you gradually wake up by brightening your phone's screen and softly playing your alarm, increasing both as time goes by. Once the phone is to its full brightness, it starts flashing. This lets you get a more natural wake up than a blaring alarm.

    THE PROS

    This app is great for people who hate to get up. It wakes you up slowly and softly with light and sound.

    THE CONS

    The app offers limited customization when it comes to timers and sounds.

    Description

    This gorgeous software softly wakes you up. It turns on the screen 30 mins before the alarm with the darkest screen and increases slowly the brightness.

    --- /!\ All the features of this software are usable, but an in app purchase allows you to customize everything ! (From only 1€) ---

    In the middle of the process it can play birds sound, and if you didn’t wake up 1 minute after alarm time, it plays a strong sound to be sure you don’t miss. It also let the phone check the emails by turning the notification sound off and internet on. So when you wake up, you don’t have to wait to know what’s new :)

    If you sleep in a dark room it really wakes you up with the light, and if the phone points at you, your wife doesn’t wake up !

    One more thing: This alarmclock is able to turn your phone in a "night mode" the evening, and turn back in day mode the morning. And so it shuts down the notification sound, internet, lower the brightness...

    ***FOR ANY BUG, PLEASE SEND ME A "BUG REPORT" (menu/bug report). THANK YOU !!***

    For those who care, here is the explanation of the authorizations:

    CAMERA
    The app open the flash in torch mode at end of the alarm to add light on your room.
    To access the camera flash, I need to ask access to all the camera module.
    But... I never take any picture.

    READ WRITE FILES ON SD CARD
    I record data about app crash when it occurs. Then, you have choice to send it to me or not by email.

    WIFI, SYNC, SETTINGS
    In night mode, the app lower the brightness, mute sounds, turn off, wifi, turn of sync (to not have email notification)

    PREVENT PHONE TO SLEEP
    The alarm has a duration of 30 minutes. The screen has to stay open.

    LAUNCH AT BOOT
    When you boot your phone, the app is activated and setup the next alarm time.

    A nice app, although lately seems a little buggy. Also, how does one enable/set the snooze feature? It's confusing.

    This is one of the only alarms that wakes me up after being diagnosed with sleep disorder 6 months ago it is extremely hard for me to get up. I can sleep thru 9 alarms and not even flinch but with this alarm I'm up as soon as the light starts. . I really want to try the lightbulbs to have a bigger dawn simulator.

    It's easy to use but can take a bit of power. Also some functions are premium only but the basic settings are still great.
