  • Best Free Clock App EVER!!! May 23, 2020

    By Muneca1013
    I've tried them all nearly!!! And I am not kidding! To me, this is the best! This clock has big numbers w the date, in any color & brightness you choose, w the weather & a flashlight too!!! So if you are like me & use your phone as your alarm now, it’s JUST PERFECT! Also, you can use your fav music if you want, as ur alarm wakeup call! I have one alarm (and you can set & save many different multiple alarms for diff days of the week that repeat or not also they are named as you want them for future use also!) You just have to slide lil button to turn them on or off!!! And that one I mentioned has about 6 songs on it!! I truly don’t ever rate ANY APP 5 Stars, EXCEPT THIS ONE! I am w the pro version and it is SOOO WORTH IT! I also like the news that scrolls along the bottom to keep me a lil more up to date... Just a Wonderful App! Very asthetically pleasing to the eye and engineered wonderfully to work perfectly ever time I’ve need it. I won’t EVER use Another alarm either as I don’t need too! I won’t either!!! (Well unless they change this 1 to something bad! Lol!) So just check it out, it’s free & I truly believe you’ll like it!) I’ve truly tried too many to count and this is by FAR the BEST!!! It’s Literally All 4 free!!! Tho it’s cheap to upgrade to Pro if u choose to remove the adds & that’s what I have, & It’s SO WORTH IT! Definitely the Best clock app out there!
  • Love this Alarm App ... Oct 9, 2018

    Add on: Thank you for fixing the RS Feed!!! ❤️ I'm not certain if there has been an upgrade/update, but I haven't been experiencing the problem with disconnect pop ups. All my alarms have gone off on time and I haven't missed any appointments. So we're back to five stars! ........ Revision: had to take away a Star 😥 ... Sadly I've discovered a critical flaw. If ones Internet / WiFi connection goes out, as has been known to happen, then Ooooops! No alarm! Yup! Why? Well a notice pops up letting you know about the disconnection, and until you click on it, your alarm doesn't reset. Guess that's fine if a person is sitting around watching for it. But I set my alarm when I GO TO SLEEP!!!! Not too useful then, eh??? Sigh old review, before all those days ... Ummm, afternoons, when my alarm failed to wake me 😴💤 🕐----------⬇ I love this Alarm App. As you're wide awake watching the clock, thinking how you'll never get enough sleep to be coherent again, there's an entertaining / distracting ( good thing ) RSS feed on the bottom. Nice ... Cool choice of colors too, if one splurges and pays the .99 cents, which I did this time, lol :0) Also set Alarms for all my medications, my Chihuahua's ... and which days for them to go off on. Again ... nice. Lots of options and cool features, pleasant surprise.
  • A decent and functional clock Jun 22, 2018

    By The Judge9
    Once you get it figured out, it’s a straight forward and easily used time piece and alarm clock. You can readily adjust its brightness level by swiping across the top of the screen (whether it’s horizontal or vertical). Multiple alarm settings can be input for convenience. You may need to tap the face to get the setting menus to show st the bottom of the screen. You can shake the phone to activate your flashlight. It’s probably best to plug your phone in on charge with the app open and running for complete reliability as an alarm clock. If you’ve set your i-Phone to auto sync to the cloud when plugged-in and locked, you might remember to manually direct it to back up before opening the clock app to use it as an alarm.
  • What happened to my great app! Apr 3, 2018

    By Jhgfdyyuhn
    I have had this app for years and loved its reliability and functionality. After a recent update of both the app and ios, the weirdest thing started happening. In the middle of the night, the app jumps to Impala Studios page in the App Store! If I try to turn that off, which is annoying enough in the middle of the night, it pops right back up like it is fighting me for control! If I leave it alone, it starts cycling through my apps trying to open them! Once, it downloaded Angry Birds, which I had removed from the phone but still had in the cloud, all by itself! I don’t know whether I’m being hacked or the phone is possessed! This only happens when this app is on. Tried to email Impala Studios, the only way they would allow contact, but, not surprisingly, have received no reply. Truly sad because this had been one of my favorite apps!
  • Decent app. Some odd bugs Oct 27, 2017

    By jondrew
    This app does what I want. Provides a good clock face for my phone so I could get rid of my old alarm clock. Some bugs and or improvement suggestions: Sometimes the Weather bar and alarm indicator won’t show up even though Weather is enabled on the display settings. If I close out the app and restart it, then the weather displays. Sometimes the weather will show up in portrait mode but not in landscape. Setting the alarms seems tricky. There’s a bunch of iPhone settings you have to enable for the alarm to work. I really don’t need the alarm function as al always seem to wake up without an alarm. But if you depend on an alarm to get up, this could be a problem. Display seems smaller than it could be. One of the things I like about using my iPhone as a clock is that it can display large numbers. When I wake up and want to see what time it is, I don’t want to have to put my glasses on to read the clock. The numbers on this app in portrait mode is too small for me to see. Landscape mode is just big enough. But there seems to be lots of screen space left on the table by this app such that the full numbers and other info could be much larger. Not quite sure why this is. Besides that, this seems like a good clock app. I paid $1.99 to get rid of the ads.

    I’ve been critical of changes to my most used app in the past. However, I just got the iPhone X, and before I could suggest moving the time around on the screen to avoid burn-in and getting rid of the white bar at the bottom, here came the update that did exactly that and more. I’ll admit there were many changes that creatures of habit may not like. Jury is still out for me on the new wake screen and notifications when closing the app. I’m sure I’ll get used to it. And I had to relearn where to go for settings. Good job, but the dev is playing with fire in changing so much on an app that people expect to just work and not evolve.
  • Problem with alarm freezing and not sounding may be Apple Music Feb 1, 2021

    By beastie64
    Love the app. But I also had this issue after the last iPhone update. It wasn’t just this app but other alarm apps would freeze when trying to play music as the alarm sound. My iPad apps functioned but not the iPhone. Luckily I found the issue for me. The next day I was syncing some new downloads from the computer (iMac) and the sync process had lots of errors with the computer not being authorized for more than a few hundred songs. I had to re-authorize the computer and then the sync worked correctly. Afterwards I checked for updates to this app (none) and just checked to see if it was still broken and it was functioning again. Try; 1) Reauthorizing your (sync) computer. 2) Syncing your device. 3) Testing the app.
  • Great but not quite perfect... Apr 28, 2018

    By VinBob
    One of the best alarm clock apps available and I also purchased for the integration with my Apple Watch. Unfortunately, the app is a little flakey with the watch app in that the next alarm time doesn’t correctly show on the watch or if you have two alarms set, it only shows the next alarm from one of the set alarms and not the other. So for example, I have Alarm 1 for Mon, Tue and Thu for 6:30am and Alarm 2 for Wed and Fri at 7:30am. Once the Tue alarm is done, it shows as Thu being the next due alarm and not the one for Wed. So it does not seem to play accurately with the Apple Watch. I had reached out to the developer in January but never heard anything back. Good app otherwise and hopefully they improve the watch functionality...
  • Exactly what I need, the last update has made me a diehard fan! Dec 20, 2017

    By its.pronounced.fee
    No other alarm lets me set a 30min volume gain with my own music randomized! Pairing this with my light alarm’s 30min to full brightness makes an absolutely perfect alarm, imho the best way to wake up! Now with the latest update adding the feature to use actual playlists it’s become my favorite alarm hands down! No more manually adding tracks after updating my playlists. I could care less about all the other features. Thirty-minute audio gain with playlists is an absolute must! Thank you devs! Lets just hope iOS doesn’t break any features in the future.
  • My Dependable clock Jun 14, 2019

    By pcman3550
    I’ve used this app for over year and has run flawlessly. I like the choice of colors or ability to dim the display. The alarm I depend one has always run flawlessly. This is an excellent app. I would only have one complaint. When I have a calendar notification that normally slides down from the top, usually with other apps, the notification will slide back out of sight after a set time. With this clock app, the notification stays down and remains blocking part of the display. I don’t know if this a function of this app or the fault of the calendar. Maybe the developers might chime in?

  • Impala has lost touch with customer experience Dec 19, 2017

    By ddrummer68
    I’ve used this app for years, and it’s always worked a certain way: push a button in the top right corner to set the alarm, and then push the big red button to silence the alarm. Now, pushing the top right corner leads to ads for this developer’s other products. There’s really no good reason for it, other than the developer knows I will tap on this exact spot out of habit. Worse, when the alarm goes off in the morning (when many of us are asleep and not functioning at 100%, and maybe our eyesight isn’t that good) the big red button is still there, but is now just a very brief snooze. To turn the alarm off, you have to hold down on a tiny white button just below the big red one. This is kind of like getting my car back from the shop and finding out the gas & brake pedals have been reversed. Finally, the long fade-in of the alarm now takes about 5 seconds. This morning, my family had been awakened before I figured out I was hitting the new Snooze button and held the off button. I always support the app developers, so if there was ever an option to purchase this app, I’ve done so. At this point, I will now be looking for another alarm clock app. It’s hard to believe anyone would so drastically alter the basic functionality of an app that was working fine for years.
  • Too many glitches Nov 15, 2019

    By Alexandra_recovered
    I have used this app since 2013 and since getting the iPhone 12 have not been able to get this app to function properly. I have made sure all the settings are correct and even will do a test alarm at night which works and then for whatever reason the alarm I set for the morning continues to go off WITHOUT any sound! Why is this app so inconsistent and glitchy? I’ve emailed support about this same glitch on my previous iPhones and have appreciated their prompt reply but their apologies don’t help when I’ve overslept multiple times! While I appreciate the developers taking time to optimize this app, I don’t understand why this app requires so many updates especially when there haven’t been any significant new features released in the time I’ve used this app. I’m sad to say, if you need consistency in your alarms sound going off, I would avoid this app.
  • Alarm sound is not reliable. Jan 9, 2019

    By arloflores
    I have posted about the reliability of the alarm sound a few times now and with the latest update (January 2019) the issue appears to still not have been resolved. The issue, though, only occurs when I lock my screen. The instructions state that as long as the app is running and the volume is on the alarm WILL sound with the screen locked. This has been true about 50% of the time for me. I have found that the only way for the app to work 100% of the time is to keep the app open and the screen unlocked all night; this also requires the phone be charging all night as keeping the screen on all night is a considerable battery drain.
  • New update is TERRIBLE Dec 23, 2017

    By Lee from MI
    This app has been great for years, now it's buggy as all hell and I can't figure out how to make it work. My alarm didn't go off this morning, then when I woke up on my own 30 minutes after it should have gone off, then it started going off non-stop and would start going off again as soon as I hit the snooze OR stop buttons, had to force close the app to get it to stop and it started again as soon as I opened it. BUT there was no volume, until I managed to turn off all alarms, only then did the alarm [inexplicably] go off the normal way, with the slow volume build, but again without any way to stop it short of force-closing the app. This app worked great, and now it's broken in a very big way.
  • Disappointed Oct 14, 2020

    By LList
    I read all the amazing reviews. I Purchased this app thinking that it would allow me to easily see everything on the screen. It turns out that the font on the bottom of the screen which reveals current news is unreadable. The weather function doesn’t work as it says. I went to settings for this app to allow it to know my location. However, there is no option to allow locations under this app under settings for my location. Also there’s no stopwatch which I incorrectly assumed would be on any clock app. I am completely disappointed. I feel like this was a waste of my money just to see the time in large font.
  • Version 4.2.6 Killed It,Alarm Doesn’t Work Jan 29, 2021

    By Anderme
    I have used this app for about 6 years and it was great until the last update. Now the alarm doesn’t work at all. The app constantly crashes and has required restart of my iPad. I have an iPad Air 2 and am on iOS v14.3. When I try to set up a new alarm or update an existing one, the alarm edit screen freezes. I can’t select or play any of the alarm sounds. When I turn an alarm on, it never makes a sound but does sometimes send a notification when it is time. But I can’t hear anything so the notification is useless. Please fix the app and it will be back to 5 stars!
  • App Locked Instead of Ringing Feb 12, 2021

    By TheBigRonbowski
    Experienced same issues as most recent reviewers. In this latest version my app completely froze on the first alarm. I leave my phone plugged in & the app running all night so it acts as my clock by my bed. Been doing this for a long time & never have had any issues. However, this morning the clock hit my first alarm & stayed locked on the time. No alarm sound at all. Have used this app for a long time & it’s been a good one. But when you’re an alarm clock app & your latest version has a bug for its most important feature I cannot give a higher rating.
  • The alarm WORKED GREAT...til recently Sep 8, 2017

    By Sons of god
    This alarm worked great up until recently..now it won't go off and it is no longer loud enough. When my phone is on the charger I wake up late and look down at my phone I wonder why my alarm didn't go off...can't figure it out?!?! It goes off when I test it but if it's left for a prolong time (overnight for sleep) it doesn't go off in the morning..I'm frustrated. Alarm doesn't work when I use music from my iTunes library/Apple Music as the sound to be played as the alarm. FYI I was able to get it working using only the alarm clocks app sounds.
  • Alarm not sounding Oct 18, 2019

    By WDW kiddoc
    I have used this app for quite awhile and recently have had multiple times that the alarm does not sound. I have awoken to the clock face and the buttons to either “stop” or “snooze” alarm showing on the phone, but the alarm never made any noise — despite it being as much as an hour after the alarm time! The phone is not in silent mode, battery is charged, and volume is up. I have closed and reopened the app multiple times, but continue to have the same problem. The alarm is just not reliable anymore.
  • Not working properly Dec 9, 2019

    By Biblevan
    I’ve used this alarm for years, but after the last iOS update, the alarm has been hit and miss. This morning my alarm failed to go off. Tomorrow it will probably work. It’s gotten so bad that I set a backup alarm on my phone just in case it fails, which it does at least once a week. I’ve tried to be patient and install all of the current updates, but it is frustrating when I keep having the same issue over and over.

  • Best Free Clock App EVER!!! May 23, 2020

    By Muneca1013
    I've tried them all nearly!!! And I am not kidding! To me, this is the best! This clock has big numbers w the date, in any color & brightness you choose, w the weather & a flashlight too!!! So if you are like me & use your phone as your alarm now, it’s JUST PERFECT! Also, you can use your fav music if you want, as ur alarm wakeup call! I have one alarm (and you can set & save many different multiple alarms for diff days of the week that repeat or not also they are named as you want them for future use also!) You just have to slide lil button to turn them on or off!!! And that one I mentioned has about 6 songs on it!! I truly don’t ever rate ANY APP 5 Stars, EXCEPT THIS ONE! I am w the pro version and it is SOOO WORTH IT! I also like the news that scrolls along the bottom to keep me a lil more up to date... Just a Wonderful App! Very asthetically pleasing to the eye and engineered wonderfully to work perfectly ever time I’ve need it. I won’t EVER use Another alarm either as I don’t need too! I won’t either!!! (Well unless they change this 1 to something bad! Lol!) So just check it out, it’s free & I truly believe you’ll like it!) I’ve truly tried too many to count and this is by FAR the BEST!!! It’s Literally All 4 free!!! Tho it’s cheap to upgrade to Pro if u choose to remove the adds & that’s what I have, & It’s SO WORTH IT! Definitely the Best clock app out there!

Well a notice pops up letting you know about the disconnection, and until you click on it, your alarm doesn't reset. Guess that's fine if a person is sitting around watching for it. But I set my alarm when I GO TO SLEEP!!!! Not too useful then, eh??? Sigh old review, before all those days ... Ummm, afternoons, when my alarm failed to wake me 😴💤 🕐----------⬇ I love this Alarm App. As you're wide awake watching the clock, thinking how you'll never get enough sleep to be coherent again, there's an entertaining / distracting ( good thing ) RSS feed on the bottom. Nice ... Cool choice of colors too, if one splurges and pays the .99 cents, which I did this time, lol :0) Also set Alarms for all my medications, my Chihuahua's ... and which days for them to go off on. Again ... nice. Lots of options and cool features, pleasant surprise.
  • A decent and functional clock Jun 22, 2018

    Once you get it figured out, it’s a straight forward and easily used time piece and alarm clock. You can readily adjust its brightness level by swiping across the top of the screen (whether it’s horizontal or vertical). Multiple alarm settings can be input for convenience. You may need to tap the face to get the setting menus to show st the bottom of the screen. You can shake the phone to activate your flashlight. It’s probably best to plug your phone in on charge with the app open and running for complete reliability as an alarm clock. If you’ve set your i-Phone to auto sync to the cloud when plugged-in and locked, you might remember to manually direct it to back up before opening the clock app to use it as an alarm.

    By its.pronounced.fee
    No other alarm lets me set a 30min volume gain with my own music randomized! Pairing this with my light alarm’s 30min to full brightness makes an absolutely perfect alarm, imho the best way to wake up! Now with the latest update adding the feature to use actual playlists it’s become my favorite alarm hands down! No more manually adding tracks after updating my playlists. I could care less about all the other features. Thirty-minute audio gain with playlists is an absolute must! Thank you devs! Lets just hope iOS doesn’t break any features in the future.
  • My Dependable clock Jun 14, 2019

    By pcman3550
    I’ve used this app for over year and has run flawlessly. I like the choice of colors or ability to dim the display. The alarm I depend one has always run flawlessly. This is an excellent app. I would only have one complaint. When I have a calendar notification that normally slides down from the top, usually with other apps, the notification will slide back out of sight after a set time. With this clock app, the notification stays down and remains blocking part of the display. I don’t know if this a function of this app or the fault of the calendar. Maybe the developers might chime in?
  • By far the Best iOS Alarm Clock app Jan 18, 2021

    By BWolsey
    When I first got my iPhone many many years ago, I searched for a bed side alarm clock and used quite a few. I found this one to be the best one for me. My favorite features are that I can use whatever music/sounds I want for the alarm and the Escalating volume feature. They’ve even added and updated many features over the years and are sure to keep it optimized for each new version of iOS. If you are debating between this and another clock app, you will not go wrong with this one. I strongly recommend it!!!
  • Like the new design, still some kinks Dec 16, 2017

    By CbusCher
    I appreciate the update that makes it much easier to find menu items. The app is also fairly feature-rich for a clock app. One dislike and one issue: I like that the app tells me now when the device is charging but miss still seeing what the battery level is; and this morning when I hit snooze, the app didn’t keep my iPad on but rather let the screen turn off, something I don’t want when snoozing. Keep moving forward - still my clock app of choice for sure!
  • The Alarm Clock App From Hell Dec 16, 2017

    By MFWare
    I paid the $0.99 fee to remove ads from this app earlier this year. It was the best alarm clock app on iOS. This latest revision of the app has given me a very different experience. After my regular alarm awoke me this morning, I tried to stop the alarm as usual. I discovered that the alarm was only in snooze mode. “Hold to Stop” simply does not work. pressing “Snooze” resets the snooze countdown to 9 minutes. Pressing the “Alarms” icon does nothing. I can’t get the app to return to regular clock mode. I deleted the app and downloaded its iCloud backup. My alarms we gone. Ad-free mode was gone. Ads now can’t be dismissed. I set a new alarm. The new alarm instantly took over the app and, to a lesser, my iPhone. I was forced to delete the app once more. In its new incarnation, Alarm Clock is less than useless. It does real damage to my iPhone experience.
  • Annoying Design change? Dec 22, 2018

    By Eriptron
    Thank you for your response! I have made the change. 🤓👍 —- Now Alarm Clock constantly sends notifications that an alarm is not set! AND, if I either reduce or turn off notifications then alarms won’t sound. It’s either a defect or bad design change. I agree with another reviewer that it seems like each update breaks something. You should be able to turn off notifications and the alarms still sound.
  • What happened to my great app! Apr 3, 2018

    By Jhgfdyyuhn
    I have had this app for years and loved its reliability and functionality. After a recent update of both the app and ios, the weirdest thing started happening. In the middle of the night, the app jumps to Impala Studios page in the App Store! If I try to turn that off, which is annoying enough in the middle of the night, it pops right back up like it is fighting me for control! If I leave it alone, it starts cycling through my apps trying to open them! Once, it downloaded Angry Birds, which I had removed from the phone but still had in the cloud, all by itself! I don’t know whether I’m being hacked or the phone is possessed! This only happens when this app is on. Tried to email Impala Studios, the only way they would allow contact, but, not surprisingly, have received no reply. Truly sad because this had been one of my favorite apps!
  • Decent app. Some odd bugs Oct 27, 2017

    By jondrew
    This app does what I want. Provides a good clock face for my phone so I could get rid of my old alarm clock. Some bugs and or improvement suggestions: Sometimes the Weather bar and alarm indicator won’t show up even though Weather is enabled on the display settings. If I close out the app and restart it, then the weather displays. Sometimes the weather will show up in portrait mode but not in landscape. Setting the alarms seems tricky. There’s a bunch of iPhone settings you have to enable for the alarm to work. I really don’t need the alarm function as al always seem to wake up without an alarm. But if you depend on an alarm to get up, this could be a problem. Display seems smaller than it could be. One of the things I like about using my iPhone as a clock is that it can display large numbers. When I wake up and want to see what time it is, I don’t want to have to put my glasses on to read the clock. The numbers on this app in portrait mode is too small for me to see. Landscape mode is just big enough. But there seems to be lots of screen space left on the table by this app such that the full numbers and other info could be much larger. Not quite sure why this is. Besides that, this seems like a good clock app. I paid $1.99 to get rid of the ads.
  • Problem with alarm freezing and not sounding may be Apple Music Feb 1, 2021

    By beastie64
    Love the app. But I also had this issue after the last iPhone update. It wasn’t just this app but other alarm apps would freeze when trying to play music as the alarm sound. My iPad apps functioned but not the iPhone. Luckily I found the issue for me. The next day I was syncing some new downloads from the computer (iMac) and the sync process had lots of errors with the computer not being authorized for more than a few hundred songs. I had to re-authorize the computer and then the sync worked correctly. Afterwards I checked for updates to this app (none) and just checked to see if it was still broken and it was functioning again. Try; 1) Reauthorizing your (sync) computer. 2) Syncing your device. 3) Testing the app.
  • Great but not quite perfect... Apr 28, 2018

    By VinBob
    One of the best alarm clock apps available and I also purchased for the integration with my Apple Watch. Unfortunately, the app is a little flakey with the watch app in that the next alarm time doesn’t correctly show on the watch or if you have two alarms set, it only shows the next alarm from one of the set alarms and not the other. So for example, I have Alarm 1 for Mon, Tue and Thu for 6:30am and Alarm 2 for Wed and Fri at 7:30am. Once the Tue alarm is done, it shows as Thu being the next due alarm and not the one for Wed. So it does not seem to play accurately with the Apple Watch. I had reached out to the developer in January but never heard anything back. Good app otherwise and hopefully they improve the watch functionality...
  • Great alarm clock app, but please fix bug with the volume control Dec 28, 2017

    By GG777
    This app is really great and I use to wake up every morning, but lately, this app has been experiencing problems with its volume control and when I close it on days when I wake up earlier than I intend to, the alarm keeps nagging me about the volume being too low to sound even though when I check the volume on my app the volume is all the way up on both alarms. And when set a new alarm to see what’s going on the alarm goes off but something in the app causes the alarms volume to go down to the point where I only barely hear it. Please fix it, this bug causes some problems on some nights.
  • Was Great, Now I’m Late Nov 8, 2018

    By Bring Episode 21 Back
    I’ve used this app for years without problems. It used to work perfectly, even with the mute button on. Because of my job, I normally keep my phone on mute. Now, the alarm doesn’t go off if mute is on. Yes, it warns you but not good enough to catch your attention. The warning was there for quite a while but the alarm still actually worked. I guess they “fixed” that in the last update. Now I’ve been late to work twice. Who the heck wants their alarm clock to NOT work if mute is selected? Just turn the alarm off if you don’t want it to work.
  • Used to be great Dec 31, 2017

    By MichaelTurk
    I’ve used this app for years, and it has been great. The latest revision threw that out the window. The sleep timers are broken and just keep playing no matter what you set them for. The previously intuitive, and very large, snooze and stop buttons have been reworked and are now clunky. I’m not sure why they felt the need to screw up a great product. Can you guys maybe offer the previous version as a separate product for people who want a good alarm clock app without all the clunky crap you threw into this latest monstrosity?
  • Great alarm clock, don’t like last changes Jan 25, 2018

    By peterwoj
    I really enjoy the app and have owned it for years now. The last changes to the interface on where the stop and snooze buttons are and how they are displayed feel that they are taken from a different app. The interface design change is very drastic and for having used the app for as long as I have, it feels very cumbersome to use now. That’s not a feeling about how it should look but what it’s like to use now.
  • It works Feb 26, 2021

    By NewSliceOwner
    Overall it’s fine, but it has a couple of annoying quirks. Every time I set the alarm I get a warning that it won’t work, but it does every time. I also don’t like the darkness of the black background. It’s not black enough. The whole face of the clock is bright...instead of it being only the numbers when you look at it. It’s more like a greenish square w bright green numbers. It’s especially noticeable when I dim the screen at night
  • Silent mode warning annoying. Sep 19, 2017

    By DerrickO
    Have used this app with no complaints for a couple of years... until now... I have one: It seems with the new update that I'll set my alarm and turn the screen off.. and then my screen lights back up with a alert/warning saying my phone is in silent mode and the alarm might not sound. I goes off just fine while in silent mode, so why the annoying lock screen alert? Can I disable that?
  • It’s great, but... Feb 24, 2018

    By The Snedders
    After a few weeks of use, all of a sudden an alarm won’t sound unless you toggle it on and off again... and then after a c hope more days you can’t turn off the alarm once it starts. Only thing you can do is delete the app. Such a bummer cause you can’t TRUST the alarm. I always have an iOS alarm going off as a sort of failsafe - 30 mins after I should be awake.
  • I have used for years Dec 20, 2017

    By zbboob
    I have used the product for years. The morning I was not awakened. I check the app and all of my alarms were gone. No big deal I recreated the alarms. This afternoon I look to verify they are there and all alarms gone again. Any suggestions would welcome. Ps. I hate the new snooze button placement and the clock is now way too small while in snooze for those of us that wear corrective lenses.
  • Alarm sound is not reliable. Jan 9, 2019

    By arloflores
    I have posted about the reliability of the alarm sound a few times now and with the latest update (January 2019) the issue appears to still not have been resolved. The issue, though, only occurs when I lock my screen. The instructions state that as long as the app is running and the volume is on the alarm WILL sound with the screen locked. This has been true about 50% of the time for me. I have found that the only way for the app to work 100% of the time is to keep the app open and the screen unlocked all night; this also requires the phone be charging all night as keeping the screen on all night is a considerable battery drain.
  • Not working properly Dec 9, 2019

    By Biblevan
    I’ve used this alarm for years, but after the last iOS update, the alarm has been hit and miss. This morning my alarm failed to go off. Tomorrow it will probably work. It’s gotten so bad that I set a backup alarm on my phone just in case it fails, which it does at least once a week. I’ve tried to be patient and install all of the current updates, but it is frustrating when I keep having the same issue over and over.
  • Ad button frustration Jan 19, 2018

    By jembry36
    This used to be a 5 Star app but some changes were not for the better to me. I use nightly set in a landscape position. You used to be able to touch the upper right hand corner and bring your alarms up to turn on and off. Now when you touch this corner ads pop up for other apps!! I understand that all want to make changes to keep up with the ever changing app world, but how is removing a nice function and replacing it with an ad button bettering the app?
  • Impala has lost touch with customer experience Dec 19, 2017

    By ddrummer68
    I’ve used this app for years, and it’s always worked a certain way: push a button in the top right corner to set the alarm, and then push the big red button to silence the alarm. Now, pushing the top right corner leads to ads for this developer’s other products. There’s really no good reason for it, other than the developer knows I will tap on this exact spot out of habit. Worse, when the alarm goes off in the morning (when many of us are asleep and not functioning at 100%, and maybe our eyesight isn’t that good) the big red button is still there, but is now just a very brief snooze. To turn the alarm off, you have to hold down on a tiny white button just below the big red one. This is kind of like getting my car back from the shop and finding out the gas & brake pedals have been reversed. Finally, the long fade-in of the alarm now takes about 5 seconds. This morning, my family had been awakened before I figured out I was hitting the new Snooze button and held the off button. I always support the app developers, so if there was ever an option to purchase this app, I’ve done so. At this point, I will now be looking for another alarm clock app. It’s hard to believe anyone would so drastically alter the basic functionality of an app that was working fine for years.
  • Too many glitches Nov 15, 2019

    By Alexandra_recovered
    I have used this app since 2013 and since getting the iPhone 12 have not been able to get this app to function properly. I have made sure all the settings are correct and even will do a test alarm at night which works and then for whatever reason the alarm I set for the morning continues to go off WITHOUT any sound! Why is this app so inconsistent and glitchy? I’ve emailed support about this same glitch on my previous iPhones and have appreciated their prompt reply but their apologies don’t help when I’ve overslept multiple times! While I appreciate the developers taking time to optimize this app, I don’t understand why this app requires so many updates especially when there haven’t been any significant new features released in the time I’ve used this app. I’m sad to say, if you need consistency in your alarms sound going off, I would avoid this app.
  • New update is TERRIBLE Dec 23, 2017

    By Lee from MI
    This app has been great for years, now it's buggy as all hell and I can't figure out how to make it work. My alarm didn't go off this morning, then when I woke up on my own 30 minutes after it should have gone off, then it started going off non-stop and would start going off again as soon as I hit the snooze OR stop buttons, had to force close the app to get it to stop and it started again as soon as I opened it. BUT there was no volume, until I managed to turn off all alarms, only then did the alarm [inexplicably] go off the normal way, with the slow volume build, but again without any way to stop it short of force-closing the app. This app worked great, and now it's broken in a very big way.
  • Disappointed Oct 14, 2020

    By LList
    I read all the amazing reviews. I Purchased this app thinking that it would allow me to easily see everything on the screen. It turns out that the font on the bottom of the screen which reveals current news is unreadable. The weather function doesn’t work as it says. I went to settings for this app to allow it to know my location. However, there is no option to allow locations under this app under settings for my location. Also there’s no stopwatch which I incorrectly assumed would be on any clock app. I am completely disappointed. I feel like this was a waste of my money just to see the time in large font.
  • Version 4.2.6 Killed It,Alarm Doesn’t Work Jan 29, 2021

    By Anderme
    I have used this app for about 6 years and it was great until the last update. Now the alarm doesn’t work at all. The app constantly crashes and has required restart of my iPad. I have an iPad Air 2 and am on iOS v14.3. When I try to set up a new alarm or update an existing one, the alarm edit screen freezes. I can’t select or play any of the alarm sounds. When I turn an alarm on, it never makes a sound but does sometimes send a notification when it is time. But I can’t hear anything so the notification is useless. Please fix the app and it will be back to 5 stars!
  • App Locked Instead of Ringing Feb 12, 2021

    By TheBigRonbowski
    Experienced same issues as most recent reviewers. In this latest version my app completely froze on the first alarm. I leave my phone plugged in & the app running all night so it acts as my clock by my bed. Been doing this for a long time & never have had any issues. However, this morning the clock hit my first alarm & stayed locked on the time. No alarm sound at all. Have used this app for a long time & it’s been a good one. But when you’re an alarm clock app & your latest version has a bug for its most important feature I cannot give a higher rating.
  • The alarm WORKED GREAT...til recently Sep 8, 2017

    By Sons of god
    This alarm worked great up until recently..now it won't go off and it is no longer loud enough. When my phone is on the charger I wake up late and look down at my phone I wonder why my alarm didn't go off...can't figure it out?!?! It goes off when I test it but if it's left for a prolong time (overnight for sleep) it doesn't go off in the morning..I'm frustrated. Alarm doesn't work when I use music from my iTunes library/Apple Music as the sound to be played as the alarm. FYI I was able to get it working using only the alarm clocks app sounds.
  • Alarm not sounding Oct 18, 2019

    By WDW kiddoc
    I have used this app for quite awhile and recently have had multiple times that the alarm does not sound. I have awoken to the clock face and the buttons to either “stop” or “snooze” alarm showing on the phone, but the alarm never made any noise — despite it being as much as an hour after the alarm time! The phone is not in silent mode, battery is charged, and volume is up. I have closed and reopened the app multiple times, but continue to have the same problem. The alarm is just not reliable anymore.
  • Alarm not playing sound still not fixed Feb 6, 2019

    By Yabari
    After waking up late for work a few times last year, I had stopped using this as my alarm. I then saw that they said they fixed the bug, so I decided to try it along with my current alarm. Worked fine for 10 days, and then this morning, I see the alarm on my phone with the red stop button, but no sound again. Don’t use this app if you actually need to wake up on time. This is on an iphone 6, using iOS 12.1.3, and app version 4.0.23.
  • New version is broken Dec 23, 2017

    By Jonesb1977
    App used to be perfect. New version breaks the app. Alarm starts and you cannot stop it. I've been pressing stop fro 10 mins. I even started my phone and it still is happening. After restart the alarm is still on and you can't turn it off!!!! Devs say they didn't catch this bug in testing. Ok... Then fix it! Last update was four days ago!!! I'm a softwaren engineer by trade. If we had a production issue of this magnitude I would be on it 24/7 till fixed. These devs don't care it looks like....
