SnapAlarm: Written iPhone App Review

Reviewed by Philip Chan

Do you want an extra kick to your current alarm clock system? Do you want a personalized wake up feature from your own device? Then SnapAlarm from developer Mattia Confalonieri is just the app for you! It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and runs on iOS 5.0 or later.


What makes SnapAlarm stand out is the fact that it allows the user to simply snap their fingers and the screen will light up with the current time, so the user will no longer have to be fumbling for their clock in the middle of the night. The user can also simply touch the device screen or shake their device to also find out the current time. Since this alarm app also initiates “Night Mode” after 30 seconds, which allows your screen to be shut off and battery life saved, the user no longer needs be distracted by their alarm clocks glow.

There are several alarms sounds available that range from traditional alarm clock sounds to nature sounds, and even features modern day beats.

The user can also choose from 7 different color themes that appeal to their liking and offer better visibility depending on what time of the day.  They can also set up alarms, so if they are a heavy sleeper, or tend to snooze, then the second alarm can help them become fully aware that they need to be up.

Appearance and Layout:

SnapAlarm iPhone App Review

The overall appearance of SnapAlarm is very basic, in a good way. Layout is simple, and functions and features navigation is easy to figure out and self-explanatory. Any user should be able to pick up the app and what it has to offer rather quickly. The alarm sounds that this app has to offer are of a decent collection, although some alarm sounds may be redundant or even irritating.


For SnapAlarm being 99 cents makes it be an average deal. There are plenty of alarm apps available in the market today, and this app adds to the number. It does have some additional features that are more unique, such as the night mode function and the “snapping of the finger” function, but it only caters to those who care more about creativity rather than practicality. It would be useful for the general audience that would utilize this app whether for work or school related functions, and it would be a great assistance for those who tend to sleep through their regular first alarm or get up a lot during the middle of the night.

SnapAlarm iPhone app requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review. The iPhone app reviews rating: [Rating: 4/5]
