I've used Timely since it first came out, and I've never looked back. They were also bought by Google a while back, so this will probably end up in AOSP at some point. I hope.
Timely alarm clock Great alarm that syncs with all your devices and can be used as a nightstand clock.
Yes, Timely. It's not material design by any means, but it's arguably one of the most beautiful programs Google every put out (well, they acquired it from another company).
Are you looking for something like this? This is using Timely. It shows timers the entire time they are running. Alarms only show in the notification bar half an hour or less before they go off. Hope this helps!
I do the same thing. The app (that I use) is Timely if anyone wants to try it. It's the only alarm I've used for years. It also has a feature I love called "Smart Rise" where it'll very slowly fade your alarm in like 15 minutes before it's set for so you wake up smoothly.
does it wake you up suddenly? The ONLY reason I use "Timely" is because of the "Smart Rise" which slowly rises the volume of the alarm instead of scaring me suddenly
I've been using Timely for a while now and it is great. A large snooze button, different tasks to turn off the alarm so you actually have to wake up, syncing of your alarms across devices... It's the bees knee's.
Get an alarm app that requires you to do some thinking. On Android I use Timely Alarm Clock and you can set it so you have to:
It will also keep vibrating. For a friend we sit it up with some old phones so 3 were around the room on hard surfaces (metal plate, glass, etc) and went off 5 minutes apart. Needless to say he has not been late for work since.
You can use ITTT and lights/ speakers/ Google Home to wake you up or announce an incoming phone call. One friend has the phone tied via BT to his Google Home and so it rings very loud.
Two major reasons:
Lack of practice:
you should try and improve your dream recall, as soon as you wake up from a dream (day dreams and hallucinations included) you should write them down in a dream journal. I'm not going to tell you how to use a dream journal effectively bc you can read but if you want to I can write down a long text wall xd
Unhealthy "waking habits":
But talking about your waking up habits is the biggest part. You should wake up to natural light, with quiet environment. You should try if you can not to move and only think about your dream and tell it to yourself. After that write it down in the DJ, it can be a notebook, phone, pc, whatever works for you. Just try to get as less exposure to unnatural light as you can.
I for example, use a dream journal app, and I have my phone on the lowest brightness with blue filter. That's bc I can't write down when I wake up. I once tried it and when I was fully I wake I saw my DJ and the text was "~~~~~~~".
If you tend to move right when you wake up like I do to turn off the alarm or something, just return to your waking position. It will help you recall more of the dream, and at least from my experience it got me used to stay in my waking position.
Except for that if you have an alarm clock on your phone to wake you up try to set it to your light sleep stage (Google how to do it) and I recommend getting an app with the "smart awakening" feature that plays a low volume calm alarm that will wake you even better in your light sleep. I use "timely": [link]
Hope you succeed recalling your dreams! :)
I've been using timely the snooze durations are strange but it seems to have unlimited snooze. I also sometimes use WAKE UP it tells you the time, weather, and temperature when it wakes you.
Are you using the stock clock app for your alarms? It may be an issue with an update to the stock app by Moto. You can try deleting the data for the Google app as /u/Kytosion said. Or you can install a different alarm app that's known to work like Timely and see if it works with that installed. If so, it's likely an update to the stock clock app on your device that broke it.
It actually sounds a lot like Timely- except no bar code scan of Satan option. Just math, drawing a symbol, or passcode. I like it because it looks very pretty and it eventually shuts up after 30 minutes.
There's always Timely which is a really good clock app ^^
So good that my iOS-peasant boyfriend actually wishes there was Timely also for iOS c:
I use Timely for my alarm on my phone (Android) which does the whole incremental volume increase over a period of time for your alarm, but there are lots of others that do the same thing.
I'm not sure there's any apps that do the sunrise thing, but there are definitely alarm clocks and other gadgets that do something similar (like the one u/DataBoy57 suggested, but you'd need to buy it separately.
I can totally relate. Every night before I go to bed I take my glasses off, slip my ring onto one of the temples, and set it on my nightstand. I set my watch next to it, then plug my phone in and set it next to that (I rely on Timely Alarm Clock to wake me up in the morning as I sleep through our regular bedside alarm clock).
If any one of those things is not where it is supposed to be and I have to go searching for it, it is almost certain I will be late and/or forget something important the next morning.
Same thing happens if my wife asks me to do something that diverts me from my morning routine. No matter how small the request is, once I am distracted I can never seem to recover from it and I spend the rest of the morning just barely hanging on.
I've been using this one for years. And love the clock widget. If you install it on multiple devices you can set alarms for that device from any of the devices you have it on. [link]
I use Timely. It's owned by Google (though not created by them) and is a great app that even syncs across devices. It's one of the highest rated alarm apps for Android.
And it absolutely sounds through the speaker even with headphones connected.
Try turning off doze for the Clock app.
Alternatively, try a different alarm app - I highly recommend Timely
I believe Google's own Timely does this.
It's also a nice clock widget too!
It's Amber Weather that got a lot of themes and also a fantastic alarm clock with nice sounds and a flip-the-phone snooze.
Edit: The alarm clock I talked about was Timely. [link]
I don't think that anyone makes a product specifically for this.
I can think of a few ways:
Tours and onboarding are a well-defined pattern in the UX world and are widely considered by UX experts to be helpful for feature discoverability. There's a huge set of potential features, especially on mobile UI, that help provide nice UX but are not easily discoverable. The most obvious example is gesture-based interaction, like in Timely. Once the user learns the gestures, using the app is effortless.
Are you talking about the clock app that comes with a bare installation of Android?
How about trying Google's other clock app?
It's called Timely. Yeah, apparently Google bought these guys.
I've been using it for a couple of weeks and it seems to be pretty good!
Had the same issue coming from the S4. Ended up switching to Timely: [link]
It's super slick. Gives you a big fat snooze button and makes it nearly impossible to disable on accident.
Have you poked around in the Digital Wellbeing settings? Also flip to shhh?
For alternatives Timely is one of the best looking alarms out there.
I eventually switched over to AMdroid because it allows me to bulk enable a specific set of alarms with one click. Why this feature is not in more alarm apps is beyond me.
I use Timely (syncs your alarms across devices), and when I ask Google to set an alarm it opens Timely and sets it there. Then when I get a new device or have to factory reset my phone for any reason, after I reinstall Timely all my alarms are still saved and ready to go. It's the best clock app I've ever used. Works with Google Assistant (when launched from my phone, not Google home though)
Timely Alarm Clock: [link]
I'm not sure if it works, but Timely let's you add sounds/music to a list.
I don't think it shuffles them automatically though, I haven't tried since I only use the default sounds.
I use timely. Have for years, it uses puzzles or math questions to snooze or silence the alarm. Also will sync across all your Android devices.
I had the same problem, never did find a fix for the native app. I switched over to Timely and haven't looked back since. Highly recommend.
You should try timely alarm clock by bitspin. Ever since I started using it, waking up has been a rather pleasant experience. The music is extremely calm and yet does the job of waking you up efficiently.
This happened to me after I had updated my device to Oreo via the Beta program.I thought it may be a bug and because I really needed a working alarm I installed Timely ( [link] ) which did work for me.But my only real fix was to back up my device and spend a couple of hours setting it up after peforming a factory reset. (Google have made this a little easier these days).
Używam Timely, kiedyś kupiłem premium, jednak firma została wykupiona przez kogoś większego i funkcje premium są aktualnie dostępne za darmo.
Do rzeczy - apka daje:
poza zajebiście wkurwiającymi budzikami możliwość ustawienia własnego (moim faworytem i tak jest dodany przez twórców budzik "Bing" przez który budzą się moi współlokatorzy i najpewniej ościenni sąsiedzi)
4 wyzwania do wyboru potrzebne do wyłączenia budzika - potrząśnięcie telefonu, równanie matematyczne, losowy wzór (3x3 lock screen) i dopasowanie kształtów (trzeba przesunąć kwadrat, trójkąt i koło na odpowiednie miejsce na ekranie) - jako że mam rano 6 budzików to każde z tych wyzwań mam do wypełnienia co najmniej raz
ręczną zmianę długości drzemki (minus to z góry narzucone czasy - 4, 5, 7, 9, 15 minut) i narastania głośności dzwonka (również narzucone - 5, 15, 30s aż do 1, 2, 5 minut) - drzemka na 4 minuty narastanie co 5 sekund, gdyby nie to to wciąż bym zasypiał do roboty
masa budzików pozwalała też z automatu, i bez możliwości wyłączenia tej funkcji, na włączenie drzemki przyciskami głośności - tu można to wyłączyć
w razie gdybyś potrzebował, jest też cloud sync
Nie narzekałem nigdy na tą apkę, z początku dziwny interfejs, jednak jak się do niego przyzwyczaiłem to doszedłem do wniosku że tak jest lepiej. Budzik zawsze dzwoni jak trzeba, wszystko działa bez problemu, nigdy mnie nie zawiódł.
I use my pebble watch on vibrate. It's set for 10 min before my alarm on my phone which sits across the room on my desk. I use the Timely Alarm Clock app which can be set to require me to answer a random Math problem to turn off the alarm.
I find this to be most effective to get up because I used to hit the snooze many times and had trouble getting up. By having my watch wake me up first, I'm then at least partly awake by the time my phone goes off. Then, because it's across the room, I have to get out of bed to turn in off. The Math problem is trivial (like 12 + 3) but forces my brain to start to turn over the tiniest bit.
Timely is awesome. Was good enough I paid for it.
Then Google bought them out a couple months later and gave it away for free.
I've got an alarm app that syncs between all my devices. So it rings on my phone and tablet simultaneously where by tablet is usually on my nightstand anyway. Snoozing/turning off one device will turn of all devices in the chain. It hasn't failed me in the 2 years i've been using it. It also got bought out by Google.
Sent you a code.
Keep in mind that Winder only sets alarms for your selected alarm clock app, so you do need one.
Personally, I like Timely.
As an alternative, Google's Timely is free & beautiful & wakes me up every day! ��
Timely (got acquired by Google).
It's gorgeous and it has the exact feature you're looking for. I also like how you can use a circular gesture to 'wind' up the amount of time you want.
I believe Timely auto silence too after a while too.
Ever since google bought out Timely, there hasn't been any updates. I still use it.
Check out Timely.
It's Samsung's Touchwiz with Nova Launcher on top of it. Clock widget is from the Clock/Alarm App Timely, and the icon pack could be Rondo, or any other flat round icon pack.
Programs directly cant turn on pc so computer needs to run permanently so it's not worth additional power consuption or noise. There could be way of your phone turning on your pc (wol) but i highly doubt that's even made and you'd need some programmers to do that.
But i reccomend timely for your phone. It has option to require little puzzles or some simple math.
edit: After little research you can set up pc like this
Don't forget Timely, an alarm clock so good that Google bought the dev studio.
Timely is a neat-looking clock app that Google bought for no obvious reason.
I use it because alarms are synced and I can set an alarm on one device from another. It turns out to be useful more often than you'd think.
You could download a new alarm app. You don't have to use the stock HTC one.
Timely comes to mind.
Most alarm apps worth a damn will take over as the default handler of alarms (so you can still OK Google to set alarms). Timely is one of them.
Its actually not a lock screen. Its an app called Timely
Edit: Yes, I'm on a S4
For the lazy: [link]
Add me to the list of AW users who would love to see Timely Alarm Clock integration. It's my primary clock on all my devices but my 360. In fact, the stock clock app is disabled on both my phone and tablet.
Timely is just so good.
so, like, an alarm app that you can put your own sounds into and can do that gradual volume increase thing and dismisses automatically after a while? Timely. Timely does all of that.
I'd like to see Timely Alarm Clock integration for Wear. When I set an alarm on my watch, I want to see it land in Timely, where I can sync it across my devices.
I already use Timely, and it's almost perfect. If I decide to crash somewhere away from home, I can shut off my morning alarm at my TV Box remotely, sparing my roommates, but leave it on for my phone and/or tablet. Things like this are extremely useful.
While the devs are at it, and since Now cards can now be utilized by third parties, it would be great to see Timely sync with my Google calender and appear as an option for reminders and Now notifications. Google owns Bitspin (the creators of Timely), so I think this is a reasonable request. But maybe I'm getting greedy.
Timely is a great alarm clock and timer.
Timely is my favorite alarm app.
Timely Alarm Clock - the animations in this app are smooth as butter, and it does it's job very well.
Timely is the best
I like Timely and have used it since it came out. Not much in terms of updates anymore, but its pretty and simple.
Bit late here, but 'Timely' looks nice. [link]
I always found the sound files that come with 'Timely' to be superb.
It comes with the Timely Alarm Clock app.
I've been using Timely for 5 or 6 years. It is solid and it is beautiful.
What about Timely? Last updated in February of 2015 but it works, looks stunning and is simplistic enough.
Timely, [link], may be the application you are looking for.
You can set it to have a random pattern or match shapes to a holes.
I like Timely
Reddit Apps isn't an app it's to name all the Apps (RiF, Sync, Bacon)
For Timely : Pictures, Storage, Wifi, Contacts, Accounts ([link])
OK Google, set timer for 10 minutes.
Have you installed Timely Alarm Clock?
Shortcuts for Waze
My Paid Apps (super useful for finding apps you forgot you purchased)
Bing Search (I use the widget for quick access to search images now that Google images sucks balls)
Forum Talker (it's a little rough around the edges, but imho far superior to Tapatalk for browsing forums)
Edit: Just realized I mis-read the title. These are all free, but I'm gonna leave it up cause they're useful.
Timely is a very good alarm clock as well. Super nice interface.
I highly recommend Timely. It has never failed and syncs with your Google account and other devices.
Timely is my favorite alarm clock app. It's well designed and beautiful app.
Fuck you, I wouldn't.
Check out Timely
I use Timely, it has a smart rise feature... check it out.
I try not to consider anything absolutely necessary. It's easy to get yourself in psychological trap of feeling like you can't practice unless conditions are perfect.
That said, here are some things that I definitely like to have around.
A good mechanical pencil
My reading glasses are also helpful most of the time. There are also lots of other little things I use, but not really super important stuff.
There's nothing "Xtreme" about it anyways. I'd prefer Timely or Alarmy. Or if you're going for new ones, Wobble.
Timely may do this. I know it syncs across devices on other items, but feel like it might do this with its stopwatch as well.
I don't know, are we talking the same Timely?[link]
Still seems like an amateur attempt at doing timers.
That kind of functionality would be great - if only Google had bought them in 2013...
Thanks for reaching out so promptly! You'll find Timely here:
It's relatively popular so it shouldn't be a wasted addition!
To get around it you could install Timely. It also has some nice features the standard clock app doesn't have.
Timely is probably the best standalone clock I have used but it is just that, clock/alarm. Nice looking display though.
You could go down the road of adding widgets, Zooper is pretty decent for adding time/weather/other stats.
Today calendar also has a widget.
I think I have linked to pro versions but there should be free ones available.
Try downloading Timely, I've been using it as my alarm clock for years and never had any trouble. It syncs across your devices too.
What do you want from the phone? Android is really just another os, maybe a bit more open. You can check out downloadable Launchers, I believe you can't swap them on iOS.
It's nice to integrate your phone with all your social accounts that you have through apps (only beware of setting up gmail account, it will sync all your contacts! You may not want to do that, go to gmail contacts, remove them, set up account on your phone, turn off syncing contacts in the settings and then restore contacts in gmail)
I think on iOS you can't change sms app either, can you? Either way, on Android you can, there is plenty in the store! Similarily keyboards (SwiftKey fan here), though I think it's already available on iOS too. Timely is an awesome clock, Relay for reddit is great for.. reddit, google camera is brilliant.
For some poweruser stuff you can check out tasker ([link]) to automate everything, LightFlow to manage led notifications, and well. In the end it's also just a phone ;)
Check out /r/Android for some good app suggestions. My favorite are Timely, Reddit Sync, Fleksy Keyboard, If This Then That. If youre looking to go full power user mode hard to beat A FULL LINUX INSTALL ON YOUR FREAKING PHONE.
looks like timely
Wallpaper: Noir Forest
Clock Widget: Timely Alarm Clock
Calendar Widget: Simple Calendar Widget
Icon Pack: Min - Icon Pack
It's the Timely clock widget, and I'm using Nova Launcher Prime with the Iride UI icon pack.
Timely is great if you need an alarm clock.
reddit sync is a great reddit app, I use the paid version which I consider a great buy.
PowerAmp has been my preferred music player for years and does pretty much whatever you want if you like storing your music on your device. Costs $3.99 which is the only con.
DraStic is the best Nintendo DS emulator if you're in to that sort of thing, it's $5.99 and there's a free 30 minute demo if you're keen to try it out.
PPSSPP is a great PSP emulator that plays most games, it's free but there is a paid donation version for $5.99 to support development.
Battery Widget Reborn is a nice little app with a clean interface for checking out your battery usage, it's $2.00 but seems to be on sale at the moment.
MX Player is probably the best video playback app out there, it's worked for every video I've tried including those with subtitles. It's free so there's no harm in trying it.
If you plan to read books, manuals, comics etc. Moon Reader is your best bet.
AirDroid, Pushbullet also come to mind, they're free apps and really useful so check them out.
Timely has a stopwatch and Timer that will show up in the notification panel.
That app sucks.
There is an alarm with math problems .
You could try this . I think there is an option that you cant turn off your phone .
It was amazing, multiple alarms syncing over multiple devices, and it was gorgeous to boot.
I use the Timely app and widget.
I'm not currently using a weather widget.
I've been using Timely for a couple years, and it's never not gone off on the time set.
You can use another app for time being. I use Timely.
I've been using Timely for a few years now. Simple to use and has more options than a stock clock app.
Timely has been my go to alarm clock for ages.
I particularly like how quick it is to set the time of an alarm.
Maybe try Timely - [link]
It has a widget similar to Google Clock with a thinner font ;)
Any reason I should switch fromTimely?
Timely Alarm Clock
The picture in the OP is of an app called timely btw. I use it, it's decent!
Timely will let you sync alarms on multiple devices.
Timely will also do several different types of challenges to dismiss alarms. Was a paid app, got bought by Google.
Timely. Great alarm/timer/stopwatch. Here
Timely - Good looking and very smooth clock/alarm app. Links to your google account so you can control alarms on your other devices.
DashClock - Clean and good looking widget with support for tons of different addons for notifications etc. Very customizable. Works on both lockscreen and homescreens.
Shutdown Start Remote - Wake On Lan for your PC, nothing better than turning on my PC before getting out of bed.
Mr. Number - Block unwanted call. You can block an entire number series eg. all numbers starting with 1234 if a company dials out from different numbers.
Inbox - Alternative e-mail client by Google. Takes a bit of getting used to, but I can't go back to a regular client now.
Pushbullet - Lets you send links etc. from one platform to another between all your devices. Phone -> PC, PC -> tablet etc.
Plex - The very best app for organizing your video collection and streaming them to your Chromecast. Automatically imports metadata for movies and TV shows. Very fast and good looking.
Poker Director - Keep track of blinds and chips when playing poker at home.
Soundhound - Listens to music and tells you what it is.
ES File Explorer - Probably the best file explorer for your phone. Has Chromecast support via a plugin.
And all of the Google-apps.
Look for any clock that works in daydream mode. Timely, for example, or even the built in Android clock.
How about timely? Timely [link]
Timely work too Link
Timely. I love it, except when using a really white background it's kind of hard to see.
I'm using Timely which is great and it does not do this. It is a paid app however.
In my research I found some cool things:
I use Timely as an alarm clock, time display, timer, etc. It's got a pretty interface and it's the app I leave running on screen. It can even manage and sync alarms across multiple android devices connected to the same network if they're also running Timely. It has a daydream option as well, but I turned off 'sleep while plugged in' in developer options so it constantly displays the time and some notification icons. It also works well with Google Now commands so I can setup alarms and timers via voice.
Also, you can turn the tablet into a motion activated snapshot camera for security purposes using Salient Eye If you have it mounted in a hallway it could be extra valuable. There's also apps to turn it into a remote camera and accessible remotely, with icamspy
You turn it into a picture frame with Dayframe and it pull pics from various online sources, like facebook or flickr.
iDisplay can turn the tablet into a 2nd monitor over network or USB. The reviews seem hit or miss. This would've been cool in my AIM days.
I find myself using Simple Pomodoro to stay focused.
A lot of interface-design work into what is essentially a timer/alarm clock/stopwatch app.
What you want is Timely
Check out Timely Alarm Clock if you haven't yet...it's badass.
Dude, use [link] you will never use default alarm again.
why have this when timely is much better and owned by google?
