Lichtwecker (dawn simulator)

Lichtwecker (dawn simulator)


Lichtwecker is a simple alarm clock which wakes with the backlight of a smartphone. Via a sequence of adjustable duration, during which the backlight lights up slowly, the awakening can be made more pleasant.




Attention: Consider the EULA ( http://cygery.com/wordpress/apps/legal/eula/lichtwecker/ ). Never rely on getting waked by this application. Always use another alarm clock you can rely on.




Everybody reacts different on ambient lighting. Therefore you should test different settings to find out which suits you best. Generally it's recommended to use this alarm clock in a completely darkened room to avoid disturbing influence of other light sources. The smartphone's position and orientation also have an impact on the functionality. A too close position with the display lighting directly on the eyes might be adverse because you awake on the lowest brightness level. On the other hand, a too great distance might render the application useless (because of the inherent low luminosity of the backlight).

Excellent. A notification bar icon would be useful.

Great app I was considering buying a lumie alarm clock before finding this app. But this does the trick just fine. I woke up feeling less grumpy. Ideal for use when trying to wake up before natural sunrise

Doesn't work I've never been able to get this to work on my sony xperia z3 compact. It says it's set but never goes off/starts, stating that alarm was deactivated due to the phone being active, which is never the case. I've tried all the different options (changing lighting settings, duration, start & end time, setting it to go off a few minutes time, & several hours time) & still nothing. Very disappointing.

Best, best, best dawn simulator Does exactly what it should, let's the screen go completely black (I'm really sensitive to light when I sleep), and is free. Not a ton of frills, but everything it has is awesome.

Doesn't Work Wouldn't override the lock on my Nexus 7. Never could get it to work.
