*Like all 3rd party alarm apps, make sure our app is running in the foreground when you go to sleep at night – so make sure you don’t hit that iPhone “home” button!
App works fine for me. Zero problems. :)
Very nicely put together ! Great app
Very helpful. Luv it !
Surprised that it supports multiple-city weather in a manner better than default Iphone app. Not too many stories, but they are well-chosen so that when you want to the app has some interesting details of what's happening at the moment here in the big C. No experience with alarm but it worked when I tested it. News stories require angular glide touch to navigate, so some redesign might make the app better.
I really liked this app when it first came out, but lately there have been some problems with the weather video that are quite annoying. The video used to change orientation when I turned my phone sideways, but no longer does. Now this morning, will not even access the weather video. I use a better alarm clock app so I can't comment on that part of the app. The rest works fine.
Awesome app, creative alarm sounds :-) wish I had option to hide the news section...
Not loud enough i fell asleep through it going off
Amazing app with nice gagdets and resources. the app is very reliable and i never had problems with it
I would like Linda Yu's voice to wake me up.
Cool app. Alarm never went off:-( glad I tested it on the weekend.
Clever alarm sounds!
This app is very easy to use...I like that I can pick my own music to wake up to...
CBS 2 NEEDS YOUR HELP BADLY
I've been waiting forever for the app that allows me to wake up to Hosea Saunders voice so this app is great. A definite five out of five if they add Jerry Taft. Maybe a Jerry Taft who just swallowed helium.
Gotta add Cheryl Burton's voice as a wakeup option in the next update!
I like it, but I don't like the idea of leaving my app open overnight. It eats up my data plan, and battery life. I shut my phone off at night. It needs to be able to turn on your phone automatically and open itself up to be truly effective. But its a good start.
Love the app but would enjoy it even more if you included the voices of Windy City Live crew...Ryan can wake me up any morning :)
Love the traffic - great to wake up with the best team in Chicago !
I already had ABC7's other app and although I always watch them when I want the news, I rarely use the app because I don't like it and don't find it in the least bit useful. This one has that beat by miles!! Easier to navigate and has great traffic which my husband can use since his job is on the road in Chicagoland. Great job ABC7!
Love being able to get my headline news and traffic all in one place along with weather updates. Gotto love the Hosea alarm :-)
I have recently found the alarm sound first was not loud enough and now no sound at all.. I have checked that the alarm is running in the background and columned is all the way up and not in silent mode. Made me late to work!! Please fix this !!!
Unreliable alarm. Failed to wake me up
Acuu Weather forecast as bad as watching Kaplan doing the weather Annoying and inaccurate. Delated after a day
waking up to tracy butler's beautiful, sexy voice is the greatest thing ever. thank you to whoever had this idea and made this fantastic great chicago app.
This app is so fun. I set it to Judy in the morning! Feel so in the know when I open my eyes!!
Wish you didn't have to keep the app open overnight for the alarm clock to work. Totally drains the phone's battery. But otherwise the alarm clock feature is way better than the Iphone's alarm clock. And I like being able to see the news and weather....
The alarm is great! But you should get Eric Horng to voice over for one. He is just so cute! [;
News and traffic are nice but the weather is not interactive. You cannot zoom or expand the screen or select other places of interest. Better ones out there.
Very cool. Love waking up to the ABC 7 News Theme.
What a neat app! I already use my phone as my alarm clock...this wakes me up AND gives me everything I want to know to start the day. Traffic and weather are key if you live around Chicago. I can get the latest news before even before I go to Facebook. Very cool concept and execution.
Love the new app!!!
This is a great app. I love the idea of waking up to my favorite news team and having the latest news, weather and traffic at my finger tips.
I like it
Love the idea of waking up to my FAVORITE news team!!!
What an awesome new application! It allows you to get all the information you want first thing in the morning; weather, traffic, and morning headlines - all at a glance! Plus, you can customize alarm tones to include some of your favorite ABC 7 Chicago Anchors! Great idea!
I just bought this app it's so cool to use when I wake up in the morning I really do need this app
I love the idea of waking up the news! This is very convenient
Clever alarm tones and latest info to start your day or to keep you informed at any hour.
