    "It turns any Android device into a professional wake-up light. I am the developer of the app. With an average rating of 4.4 and over 300,000 downloads it is just loved by so many people because it improves their life every single morning! If you are a night owl than you know how hard it is in a world made for early birds. Gentle Wakeup will wake you up by light and you will feel so refreshed you will never want to wake up by sound any more."

    "This app has been very beneficial to me as not only I have a hard time waking up, but also a hard time remembering certain things that I have to do. I know that I usually give myself a lot of alarms in order for me to wake up, but I know that I'm able to sleep through that or mindlessly turn off my alarm. I've been liking this app for the time being, especially the memory and math tasks, as it did help me wake up for days to go work and other important tasks I have to do during the day."

    "This is a great idea for an app. I can't tell you how many times I'll just hit the snooze button and fall back asleep. Now I actually have to actively solve these games to get the blaring noise to stop."

    "This would be a relaxing way to wake up. You wouldn't have to run over to an alarm clock to shut it off. You can pick your own sound so you can pick something that's not so annoying. But be aware other things could interfere with it like a ceiling fan."

    "This alarm clock app is great for those who like to personalize their clocks as per their own schedule. I downloaded this app for my teenage son who was finding it hard to manage his time. He now is able to schedule his waking up time and set time aside for his homework and sports activity through this helpful Android app. "

    "I have trouble getting out of bed in the morning, so I decided to try the Android alarm clock app "Alarmy." Alarmy is the coolest app ever. It is definitely annoying when I am half asleep, but it does gets me out of bed. I usually set it so I have to do some sort of task (take a picture, solve a math problem, etc.) to get the alarm to turn off. Fun and annoying all at the same time! I seriously love this app!"

    "A really useful and convenient alarm clock app, unfortunately it's the complete opposite of what I needed. This works only on iOS devices and then it's only available in the Apple app store, so for someone like me who has an Android this is a useless solution. It looks nice and in fact I'd like to try, but when I search for an android alarm clock apps I expect better than this."

    "I found the Puzzle Alarm Clock app while searching for a new alarm app on my android phone recently. I decided to give this app a try as I always seem to have a hard time waking up and this app, which makes the user do a simple puzzle to ensure they are awake, is horrible. I tried this app two days in a row and then immediately deleted it! This app not only made it difficult for the alarm to stop going off but it also caused me stress while waking up in the morning due to the puzzle I had to complete. I quickly deleted and I don't recommend!"
