Warmly – An Alarm Clock Review
Wake up gently with this Android alarm clock
Most us find it hard to wake up in the morning and the harsh reality of a typical alarm clock can sometimes get you off to a bad start. Warmly’s aim is to wake you up in a way that is not a sudden jolt, but is rather more gentle. There are two main decisions to make: the alarm time and the noise you wish it to make. You are able to choose from a cat, a dog or even have the sound of brewing coffee or breakfast being cooked. There are also train, plane, religious and sport noises available too.
As well as being able to tell the app whether or not you want the alarm to begin every day, you can also select a snooze option that defaults at nine minutes. When the alarm goes off, it does so gradually a few minutes beforehand with the noise getting ever so slightly louder so that you do not wake up to a sudden beeping horror, but instead are stirred into action with a far more agreeable and soothing sound.
Sadly you cannot use your own sounds, but the quality of those included are great. The app also displays the temperature and gives a brief weather report so that you can figure out exactly what you are waking up to each day.
A well-presented and easy-to-use alarm that ensures each day gets off to a good start.
