The best Android Desktop Alarm App:Gentle Alarm follows your sleeping cycle
Download Squad have a very good review of Gentle Alarm this evening.
What makes Gentle Alarm Stand out?
We all know that we shift between REM and deep sleep. If you get woken up in deep sleep phase you essentially feel shitty.
What Gentle Alarm does is provide a gentle ring that when you are in a deep sleep phase you are likely to sleep through it and will only get woken up via a louder sounding alarm in the REM phase.
Now I know that everyone sleep pattern is different and Gentle Alarm does not boast to be able to tell you that. That is why you can customize:
- The volume of the alarm
- The duration of each interval
- Adjust how prematurely it fires
Custom alarm for just one day
If you want to sleep late for a particular work day, you don’t have to create another alarm but just custom adjust a planned one. Very useful.
CAPTCHA ensures you definitely wakes up!
Here is a cool feature. Sometimes you wake up yet go back to sleep. CAPTCHA is configurable to make it mandatory that you key in a pattern that should tax your brain to ensure that when you dismiss it, you are really awake.
How cool is that
