Waking up on time for work in the morning can be quite a bit of a daunting task for some people, which is why there are just so many different alarm apps available in the Play Store. While some apps just function as a normal alarm clock, there are a few that manage to stand out from the crowd. The newly released app called Glimmer seems to fall into the latter category.

Glimmer

Glimmer is an alarm app that tries to make the whole affair of waking up in the morning a fairy tale affair. With its big icons, pastel colors and scenic backgrounds, the app does look like it has been inspired from a Disney movie in a good way.

The app provides some unique features such as automatically putting your phone to silent mode at the set time thus ensuring that you receive uninterrupted sleep. Another feature offered by the app is that it slowly increases the brightness of your phone as the set alarm time draws near, mimicking a sunrise, as well as providing complimentary sound of birds chirping. If you don’t wake up thanks to this picturesque performance, the app reverts to the set alarm tone and plays it at full volume.

The whole Disney morning routine may seem like a great feature to some users but personally I found it as nothing but a waste of my battery life. I for one simply don’t understand the reason behind increasing the screen’s brightness over the course of 15-30 minutes period just to make the whole thing seem unique. Then again, I was never really a morning person so, I guess there might be some people out there who will find the scenario created by Glimmer quite unique and refreshing.

In any case, the app is available on the Play Store for free with an in-app purchase of $1 to unlock its full features. Considering which, I would recommend that you try the app out at least once to see if it’s something you enjoy or not.
