Sleep Like a Droid
Alarm clock with sleep cycle tracker. Wakes you gently in light sleep for pleasant mornings. Features: sleep graph history, sleep debt stats, sharing (FaceBook, email), nature alarms (birds, sea, storm...) with gradual volume up, music volume down when asleep, captcha, sleep talk/snoring recording (2 weeks trial)
Haven't tried it but sounds pretty cool. Tracks how much you toss and turn and the amount of sleep you get. Plus it wakes you up.
AlarmDroid [Alarm Clock]
Custom tasker alarm - wakes me up to my music, speaks a greeting aloud. If I have any new calls, messages, or emails, it speaks that information to me as well. Combined with a homescreen shortcut to a task that sets a "reminder" variable, I can set a morning reminder (also spoken aloud)
Alarm Clock Plus and Desk Clock Plus have been my go to alarm apps so far.
Or at least, the very tired cassandra, which is still quite a feat.
Seriously, I hate waking up to alarms, and more generally hate waking up to do things on other people's schedules. The Xtreme Alarm app is solely responsible for my relatively superb punctuality at work these last few months.
You see, I would love to be the type of person who could wake up to gentle breezes and zen chimes. But the reality is I need an alarm with a little more backbone and stick-to-itiveness. (related background information: In college I had to put my alarm as far away from me as possible so I be forced to get up to turn it off, hopefully eliciting a more awake state of being, and lessening my chances of going back to sleep. I also convinced my roommate to set my alarm for me, and to set it anywhere from right on time to one half-hour early.)
So this alarm actually wakes me up because one of it's many customizable features allows me to control HOW the alarm turns off, and I have set it to have me do MATH problems! (other options include tapping the screen, puzzle lock, shaking the phone for x amount of seconds, moving at a minimum speed, and more) Yeah that's right, I do math first thing in the morning, and use the hardest of the five levels to assure I get my brain going. I find it is nearly impossible remain asleep while attempting to solve a series (i usually require 5-7) of (relatively) complex equations (ie 18x23-151) in your head ( I suppose you could use paper but where is the fun in that?) all while listening to an annoying alarm. I can set it to add more problems every time I snooze (by shaking for x amount of seconds) which does actually make me reconsider snoozing all together.
OH, and I found out the hard (well mildly embarrassing and publicly obnoxious) way that it will route the alarm to the speakers even if the headphones are in. (Everyone on the bus that morning was a little more awake because of me and my app.
definitely one of my must haves....
Alarm master lite
even lite version is very useful and simple if you need only alarm clock)
I would suggest Gentle Alarm. Highly configurable. I love it
