Alarm clock app

Most us  find it hard to wake up in the morning and the harsh reality of a typical alarm clock can sometimes get you o to a bad start. Warmly’s aim is to wake you up in a way that is not a sudden jolt, but is rather more gentle.

There are two main decisions to make: the alarm time and the noise you wish it to make. You are able to choose from a cat, a dog or even have the sound of brewing co ee or breakfast being cooked. There are also train, plane, religious and sport noises available too.

As well as being able to tell the app whether or not you want the alarm to begin every day, you can also select a snooze option that defaults at nine minutes. When the alarm goes o , it does so gradually a few minutes beforehand with the noise getting ever so slightly more loud so that you do not wake up to a sudden beeping horror, but instead are stirred into action with a far more agreeable and soothing sound.

Sadly you cannot use your own sounds, but the quality of those included are great. The app also displays the temperature and gives a brief weather report so that you can  gure out exactly what you are waking up to each day. A well-presented and easy-to-use alarm that ensures each day gets off to a good start.
