Gentle Wakeup user reviews :

Great app! I recently purchased a $120 fancy sunrise clock and I like this app better. The light is very bright and I like the nature sounds. It’s a very gentle way to wake up. My alarm is set for 5:30 every am so I can exercise before my six month old wakes up. This alarm wakes me gently so I’m ready for a peaceful morning routine.

Has some bugs with lock screen and post alarm execution. Occasionally alarm fails to fire. Also tries to upsell you additional features even after you purchase ‘ad free’ version ( nag screens for 50% discounts, multiple times’). Apparently ads to buy from the developer is not considered ads in his book. Other than that… would be reasonable alarm.

  • Hi, sorry for trouble. Phone manufacturer are suppressing apps in order to exend battery runtime. Read here how to whitelist: App is fremium, not completely free, but basic configuration free. You can unlock only a single feature (no ads) and that keeps prices low. Or unlock all.

Really works to wake me up gently. The combination of birdsong and increasing light works perfectly for me but there are plenty of other combinations of sound and light for both waking and sleeping. So much thought and work has gone into this app I have no hesitation in giving it five stars. At present I am using the ad-supported version but will purchase one of the premium options when I work out which is best for me. I advise to watch the explanatory video before use.
