Wake Smarter: Written iPhone App Review
Dislike the annoying, nagging, and repetitive sound of your current alarm clock? Do you wish you had something enjoyable to fall wake up to before you go to work or school? Wake Smarter iOS app from developer Crop Duster Media can kick start your day in a more pleasant way. Not only will it change the way you wake up, but it just make you a “morning” person. This app is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), and iPad. It also requires iOS 5.0 or later.
You will never wake up the same after using Wake Smarter. This app allows you to wake up to your favorite sounds and songs, keep you up to date with your social life with the “Wake Smarter” function, and even customize your alarm clock wall paper designs and clock styles. After you “wake up”, you can have the latest news, or the current weather, or even your social networks account loaded up immediately and in any order you prefer.
Having difficulty falling asleep at night? Not only does Wake Smarter get you set in the morning in a better mood, but it also helps put you to sleep faster, and have a decent sleep too. You can program the app to play tranquil nature sounds or even your own audio podcasts, and the sounds or audio clips will automatically shut off based on the timer you set beforehand.
Appearance and Layout:
The appearance is remarkable on Wake Smarter. You can change the backdrops of your “alarm clock” to different scenery or landscapes. Images are clear and distinct. When images aren’t present, you will have a gray scale background where you can select your desired preferences and settings. One point was deducted for the layout design since navigation and location can be a little tricky, but once you go past the first couple of steps, you are good to go. When you load the app three icons will appear on the bottom. The first icon features a day and night function, the second is the “Wake Smarter” function, and the third is your alarm clock creator and settings function.
Overall, Wake Smarter is a great app. To fork out $2.99 on this app really isn’t much considering all the features that it has. An ordinary alarm clock will cost you the same price or even more, and it probably won’t wake you up in a good mood either. Who knows, if Wake Smarter can you wake you up in a brighter mood, maybe the rest of your day will be just as good!
Wake Smarter iPhone app requires iOS 5.0 or later. It is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
