Electric Dawn – Alarm Clock. A gentle wake alarm clock
Sep 3, 2014 5:26 PM –
Electric Dawn – Alarm Clock uses a collection of gentle alarms to ease you awake rather than an instant jarring alarm. Is it worth the spend in comparison many of the other freebies? We’ll tell you in this review!
Tested on: Samsung Galaxy S4
Pros & Cons:
- Gentle wake alarm!
- Choose preset nature sounds or music on the device!
- Limited feature set for the price in comparison to competition.
- Minor: personally wish you can change hour format from 24 to 12 for Americans.
Electric Dawn – Alarm Clock is a simple alarm clock app for gently waking you. By default it’s set to gradually raise the alarm volume in addition to displaying a graphic that slowly sunrises like shown in this video. Gently waking versus abruptly waking has many benefits and allows you to wake less confused and some people even feel more refreshed.
Setting an alarm is straightforward- you can set multiple alarms, quickly enable/disable them along with adding vibration. Of course, set time and days of the week if recurring. I wish the developers can add one request for us Yanks and civilians. Allow us to change the hour format from 24 hours to 12. It does convert when tapping the time, however, it would be convenient to always see this at a glance if desired. There are only seven nature sounds to choose from such as various birds chirping, seagulls at the beach, a rain forest, etc. In addition to these sounds you can load music from your device. You can set the alarm sound and set sunrise minutes before the alarm time elapses. Lastly, in the settings menu you can tweak a few things like alarm volume, snooze duration, and sunrise options. When compared feature by feature to competitors, it may not be worth the spend for limited feature set.
