If you’re after a perfect Android alarm clock that requires minimal effort but provides maximum effect and is rather beautiful too, look no further. Android developer Softbork has developed an Alarm clock that fits the bill exactly.
But don’t take our word for it, download and try it for yourself. There’s a free version and a paid ad-free version that costs a tiny £0.68. If your idea of a wake-up call, however, is to solve tricky mathematical problems to dismiss your alarm, or you like endless menu choices to fiddle through, with complex set-up instructions, you best look elsewhere.
Perfect Alarm is simplicity itself, with intuitive, fool-proof menu settings that even your poor Aunt Hilda, who unfortunately seems to have lost her marbles, can set without any issues. No need for fancy and unnecessary trimmings, such as voice control. Who needs the weather report or stock exchange read out to them when they wake up anyhow? Not Perfect Alarm, this little gem is gimmick-free and works perfectly every time, even after rebooting your smartphone. In fact, Perfect Alarm is also designed to withstand task-killing apps.
Perfect Alarm is the closest to a real alarm clock you’ll get in virtual form. To set the time you wish your alarm to wake you, you simply move the clock’s red hand with your finger. Time can be set in either AM/PM or 24-hour format, and you can see at a glance the exact time you’ve set the alarm for, as this is displayed just above the clock as you move the hand.
Don’t worry about being late for work by accidentally disabling your alarm as you rouse yourself from sleep; to disable or snooze you must long-press, and hopefully, this is not a skill that can be done whilst half asleep. You can choose to be woken by any tune you wish, and there are 3 options for fade-in, where the alarm will gently rise in volume, of either 30 seconds, 1 minute, or 5 minutes. More like a gentle caress than an industrial hammer drill to the brain.
If you can’t get to sleep in the first place there’s always the option of counting the sheep that cascade down the screen like moon dust. There are 9 different alarm clock designs to choose from, it’s just a shame that the backgrounds aren’t changeable too, as there are some really enchanting ones.
To reset or disable your alarm simply tap the cheeky little rooster on your notification bar to gain instant access to Perfect Alarm’s menu.
