WakeLight - A Dawn Simulator

WakeLight - A Dawn Simulator


WakeLight is a dawn simulator for Android devices. It helps to wake up more easily in the morning, as your body prepares for wakeup due to the increasing light of the display.

Wikipedia says "Dawn simulation is a technique originally developed to help treat seasonal affective disorder, but can be used as a soundless alarm clock to wake up the body naturally. Typically, the treatment involves timing lights in the bedroom to come on gradually, over a period of 30 minutes to 2 hours, before awakening.". WakeLight offers you several configuration options for the light simulation (sequence length, brightness curve, min/max brightness) and the sound (alarm sound, snooze timing and sound) in combination with the comfort of periodic alarm templates (with single-alarm removal), and of course single-alarm times. See the pictures. This app is very handy when you're travelling: take your dawn simulation with you!

It is designed for tablets of at least 7 inches, but a so-worker of mine uses it on a 5" smartphone with the display directed to the bed. It depends on the light sensitivity, of course - but you will be astonished as it works subconcious. Just try, I think you will not regret it.

For sure a unique feature, although irrelevant for 99% of users (just for fun): WakeLight is presumed to be the only alarm clock that can set its alarm time relative to the sunrise time of the current location. ;)

Features:
- alarm templates for repetition as well as singular alarms
- disable or change alarm time even of a singular alarm of a template
- brightness, duration and sounds configurable, some sounds contained in the package
- optional display of weather forecast and sunrise/set times (using the WakeLight plugin downloadable from the shop)
- clean and easy-to-use user interface
- optional a clock display with automatic brightness control that gets brighter when touched
- external apps can set alarms using the standard intent, for example Google Now "wake me up at 6:30".

Recent changes:
- fixed size problem of the small widget (my launcher had no problems with it)
- added support for SET_ALARM intent, so external apps (like Google Now) can set alarm times.

Love it Instead of spending $100 on a wake light machine and having yet another thing on my night stand, I bought this app. It works great, I use it on my tablet and phone. I wake up refreshed without being jolted out of sleep.
