I have to agree.
Gentle Alarm is one of the first apps I downloaded and installed, shortly after acquiring my new Galaxy S2 in the past couple of weeks.
It's marvellously configurable, and though I am not currently using its pre-alarm feature, I love having it GENTLY sound, g-r-a-d-u-a-l-l-y increasing in volume. I am using the rowing boat sound file to awaken and it IS gentle and quite unobtrusive.
I also like the 3 snooze periods, with a decreasing time gap between each.
I'll mention too that I like the room to be as dark as possible when I'm sleeping, so I choose violet (nearly as dark as it can be), and set the brightness to minimum so that if I choose to leave the phone connected to a charging stand, with the display on, I am not disturbed by the fairly minimal amount of light transmitted.
I am now also searching for the best talking alarm app I can find, but as far as this one goes, I think it's hard to beat or match.
It's a paid app I am happy to have and use
