App Description

*Note* - Rise Alarm HD is a free, iAd supported application that comes with one clock face and one alarm. You can upgrade to have up to three clock faces and eleven alarm sounds. We appreciate your support!

"With a beautiful interface and great sounds to wake up in style, Rise Alarm is the app you have to check out this week." - MacStories

"As a frequent traveler who depends on a phone as a daily wake up call, I’m tired of the crickets or harp of the standard iPhone alarm but also need complete reliability, so this will be a welcome change. Because Rise Alarm only uses supported Apple functionality, it should be just as reliable." - Tech Cocktail

"Oh boy, this is so cool! Most beautiful alarm clock on the App Store by @kenyarmosh http://risealarm.com/" - Robin Raszka, Lead Designer at Tapmates

"Rise Alarm is a nifty app. Like the gesture experimentation to expose parts of the UI." - Justin Williams, Creator of Elements

Are you tired of clunky alarm clock apps that start your day off the wrong way?

Don’t lose sleep over it, you’ll soon be waking up in style with Rise Alarm. It’s a beautiful alarm clock app that reinvents the category, paying homage to classic and modern alarm clocks that use to sit bedside, while adopting the benefits available in Apple’s amazing platform.

FEATURES

✓ Easy access to clock functions through swipe gestures (nap, alarms, and brightness)
✓ Beautiful analog clock faces that are extremely visible in low light
✓ Amazing sounds that are pleasing to the ear but effective at their job (waking you up!)
✓ Guaranteed effectiveness by using local notifications; the alarm will trigger even if the app is not running

DESIGN

No other clock apps have an aesthetic like Rise Alarm because it was created only after extensive research of traditional clock design. Aside from its beauty, the clock is analog and uses the entire screen, providing a more realistic look that's also easier to see at night. Upgrade to the dark modern face, as it actually has numbers that appear to glow in the dark.

SETTINGS

Why have complex AND buried settings for something as simple as creating an alarm time? With Rise Alarm, you'll quickly swipe left or right to set a an alarm or nap time. And the screen brightness is similarly a quick little swipe up to adjust it (slider at the bottom).

EFFECTIVENESS

How many times do you wake up startled by annoying sounds? Or simply not wake up at all because other third-party alarm clocks never go off?

Rise Alarm sounds are designed to be fun and excite you at the start of the day. If you are a traditionalist, you can use the "Vintage" and well-known sound of classic alarm clocks for free. Or, you can upgrade to try something more modern like "Glow," which creates an aura like that of orchestral sunrise.

Of course, sounds don't matter if a nap time or alarm doesn't go off. That's why Rise Alarm only uses supported Apple functionality instead of hacks like many other alarm options. And because Rise Alarm uses Apple's local notifications, the alarm will function even if the app is not running.
