Progressive Alarm Clock is an utilities app developed by Spotlight Six Software LLC, and is available for download on both iOS and Android devices. The app is compatible with iOS 10.0 or later.
Progressive Alarm Clock will wake you up gently and gradually using the beautiful sounds of the Tibetan singing bowl. At the specified alarm time, the bells will begin to ring in a pre-defined pattern - starting out softly and slowly and gradually getting louder and more frequent. You'll come out of your slumber slowly and peacefully. No more being jolted awake.
+ After setting the alarm, the app can be put in the background - allowing you to use other apps. At the specified alarm time, the alarm pattern will begin.
+ Choose from five pre-defined patterns with varying bell schedules and escalation lengths.
+ Choose from six different bells of varying size and metal compositions - from bright and clean to deep and complex with lovely overtones.
+ You may enter journal notes upon awakening - great for recording your dreams before the memory fades. You can then go back and review your journal entries and you may export the journal via email. For privacy, you may set a password to prevent unauthorized access.
+ To save battery, you may lock your device's screen and the alarm will still work. Either start the alarm and press the lock (sleep) button, or turn on the "Auto-Lock" setting.
+ This app uses the same amazing bell sounds used in our Insight Timer meditation timer. Here are some app store comments pertaining to the bells:

I think this alarm is fantastic, when it works. Today was the third time in less than a month that it failed to ring. Fortunately, I’m retired, so I wasn’t late for work.
I’ve been using this app for years. I love having progressive chimes that wake me rather than jarring alarm sounds. And the variety of chime tones, available. I also like it for my meditation sessions.
Best alarm app I’ve used. Top shelf. Been with them for a super long time, won’t use any other. I love all the customisations, the interface and, of course, the progressive alarms.
... could you please implement or add a timer. If I want to take a quick nap for 20 minutes, I don’t have to spend time figuring out... Thank you!
