Glimmer – Wakes you up with the light

[App] Glimmer (luminous alarm clock)


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

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.

I record data about app crash when it occurs. Then, you have choice to send it to me or not by email.

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

The alarm has a duration of 30 minutes. The screen has to stay open.

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

Glimmer user reviews :

So far I like it (but I’ve only been using it for a short time, so take this with a grain of salt)! It works like one of those expensive sunrise alarm clocks to wake you naturally, amd seems fairly easy to set. I’m still exploring the features. The in-app design could use improvement, bit overall I’m enjoying it so far!

Initially, I love this app. The option to have light only is amazing! But for some reason the app has just stopped working of late. So bummed, because it’s the only app I’ve scene that has the option for light with no sound. UPDATE: So, I am not even sure when I wrote the initial review above, but I am sorry to report nothing has changed. Sure wish I could get this app to work. Sigh. (11/3/2020)

Works well! Limited settinfs on free version, but does what it needs to; wake you up with some escalating light and sounds. Personal fave is sunrise with waves with phone across the room. I wake up alert instead of groggg like with a normal alarm

The app didnt work very well, the light never actually helped me to wake up and the notifications didn’t work either. I like the concept of the app but it does need some improvement to work efficiently.

A good and reliable wake up app. Has worked well for me, gently waking me in the morning with a nice nature sound. The free version is good for basic functions, however not sure if the developer monitors app and emails anymore as I have received no reply response for premium features. There are a few graphic bugs which I have encountered and unfortunately the link to the shop to purchase a Bluetooth lamp is broken.

Lovely way to start your day I was searching for a gentle way to wake up and this world great for me! No more panicked awakenings, a good start into the day. I live that you can get the functionality of one those sunrise alarms in just this app, cheaper and more convenient!

I have had this app a while and have seen it update a few times. This latest update seems to be the best so far. But, since using this app it has always been reliable for me.

I love being able to wake up to light instead of an annoying sound. One thing I would like support for is the camera LED. It would be awesome if you could use that and have it get progressively brighter so I could keep my screen down during the night.

Awesome, Thank you very much again!

Natural Pleasant way of waking up.

Awesome Just love the new look and feel. Loved it so much bought the full version Looking forward to updates
