Customer Reviews

  • There is a dimmer!

    by Empie225

    To the reviewer who claims there is no dimmer - it can be found under appearance in the setup of the alarms!

  • Good way to greet the morning

    by jtretakoff

    Intriguing: wake with weather, headlines, traffic info, and more. Great idea, with features a plenty: you can choose a variety of local images as backgrounds, customize the display, and even choose your favorite local ABC7 personality to wake you up with a prerecorded message. Can't beat the price, either: free. A winner, right? Alas, three issues sidelined this one: the clock is pretty small; it doesn't support landscape mode; and it has no dimmer. That glare all night is a bit harsh to sleep by. While a great app to wake to, not really a bedside companion.

  • One feature...needed.

    by PGAPRO1

    Other alarm clocks have the ability to stay on without having to keep the app open. And when your company requires to have a password (like mine), other alarm clocks will work without having to sign in first. But this app doesn't have that feature. Not easy to sign in to hit snooze or turn it off when your eyes are half shut or you have a hangover.

    Good app. I can stay updated everywhere I go

  • A pleasant wake-up

    by JFwalnutcreek

    After having problems when I first downloaded the app a couple of weeks ago I deleted it. Reinstalled the app a few days ago and now it's fine.

  • Drains your battery!

    by ENG25TRK

    I suggest keeping your phone plugged in overnight. You have to keep the app running for the alarm to work. This ends up draining 1/4 of your battery overnight! Otherwise, it's a decent app.

  • It's pretty, but …

    by Raphael_G

    the alarms do not consistently work. If there are two set, maybe the first will work, but the second will not.

  • Excellent App!

    by Hill Account

    Saw it on the morning news. Downloaded it immediately. Beautiful graphics, easy to use, very helpful traffic info. I love that we can use our own music library for the alarm! Excellent app!

  • Great ideal and great app

    by Holdn2aces

    Love the design attention to details and all the integrations that are included in this app. News, weather, and an alarm with a few additional ABC 7 News wake up alerts I have to admit its hard to choose between the coffee one and the rooster waking you up reminds me of life as a child on the farm. Thank you!!!

  • News Headlines

    by Babyksmom

    Sweet! Now I don't have to search for my news app when I turn off my alarm. And I can switch up my alarm music as much as I want.

  • Great wake-up!

    by Mmbix

    This is fabulous! Thanks for waking me up on time

  • It's ok

    by tomahto

    I got really excited, I've been wanting an app that will actually wake me up with the news in streaming audio or video format. This one just has a regular alarm, then a few headlines, weather, and traffic in print once you get your eyes unglued to look at it.

  • Fun & Functional

    by SFAppPrincess
