In-between the launch of App Savvy, talks, interviews, and some very exciting client work, I’ve been tinkering in the workshop. I’m going to write much more about the making and motivation of my latest app-Rise Alarm-but for now, go check it out. It has a very unique experience, with the interface being driven by swipes. It also just so happens to be the most beautiful alarm clock on the App Store. I’m finally satisfied with a fun, quality alarm app that works 100% of the time (yeah, local notifications!).
By the way, there are also a couple of fun video trailers. The one currently featured on the homepage showcases the iPad version (part of Rise Alarm Universal) and an original song by my bud Liam McDonald (a talented yet undiscovered singer/songwriter). I could definitely hear this song in an Apple commercial. The original iPhone trailer is also still available and has a completely different style. At the end of it, you can hear the “Glow” alarm sound. Great alarm sounds are also a major part of what makes Rise Alarm different than other options.
Don’t take my word for it? Check out this initial glowing review on MacStories.
