Wake-up Light

Wake-up Light


This app turns your Android device into a wake-up light. Just set the alarm and leave your device by your bed.

Your light will start about 20 minutes before wake-up time at minimum brightness and then slowly increase towards your wake-up time. When your alarm rings you will wake up smooth and naturally.

This app will also play sounds from the nature, which increases in volume in sync with screen brightness. This helps you wake up even more easily!

New: You can now choose what color the wake-up light should be!

NOTE: This app works best when used on devices with large, bright displays. Tablets are perfect! I've tested the app myself with the Samsung Galaxy 10.1, Nexus 7 and other tablets and it works great!

Several new features are planned, stay tuned!

You can configure how long before your alarm rings the light should start. A good value here is about 20-30 minutes.


Connect your device to a charger to avoid draining the battery.

Please send me an e-mail if this app does not work on your device or if you got a suggestion for an improvement.

Note: It's not recommended to use custom screen locker apps together with this app, as they may conflict with each other.

Doesn't work Bought the app last night. When it started this morning there was no gentle gradation., it was just full on. It was like a flashlight in my face. Please fix.

When it works When this application works I like it but lately it's been quirky. Can't test light, sound is instantly full blast not a subtle increase in volume. Though some days without making any changes to anything it just works fine. HTC DNA user

Great but I really appreciate the idea, it is the kind of alarm I've been looking for. I think it will be even better to include snooze and set the time for individual days.

Early Riser I tried it this morning and I woke with the light but will add the sounds in tomorrow for a little more umph to my alarm. I don't like that if I touch my screen at all it turns off the alarm instantly; I wish there was one more step to ask for confirmation that I want to turn it off. Good so far, will be better once I play with my personal settings.

Vanilla This app seems full of bugs, sometimes the alarm doesn't go off at all, sometimes it goes off in the middle of the night, and sometimes it just constantly flashes and won't let me turn it off. You can't change the brightness of the light either. If I could return it I would.
