Rise Alarm Clock Gains More Gestures And Features In Latest Update
Rise Alarm Clock has once again emerged with a significant update. Hailed by as here at AppAdvice as an App of the Week and as one of our Top 10 Best Paid iPhone Apps of 2012, Rise is a universal alarm clock app that's akin to the to-do app Clear and the weather app Solar. Rise is reminiscent of those two apps in that it also sports a minimalist interface and it also supports a variety of gestures. And through the app's latest update, Rise has gained support for even more gestures. Now, Rise lets you drag to set the snooze duration, which can now be adjusted to up to 60 minutes. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. Rise now also lets you drag to set the dim level for the app's clock at night. What's more, as you drag, the dim setting is previewed accordingly. Also previewed accordingly as you drag its setting is the alarm volume. Yes, you can now also drag to set the alarm volume. Moreover, there's now a Sleep Tunes timer, which you can also drag to set up to 90 minutes. In addition, the new version of Rise introduces a flash screen alarm for hearing-impaired users, complete with a flash screen preview when selected. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later, the new version of Rise Alarm Clock is available now as a free update or as a new $1.99 download. Note that some users have been experiencing frequent crashes since updating to the latest version of Rise. For what it's worth, I haven't encountered any issue with the app since I updated it. But if you'd rather not run the risk of rendering Rise practically inoperative, I suggest you wait for the necessary patch in an upcoming update. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
