    A simple clock and alarm for the DS.

    It differs from most alarms as it is designed to wake you up gradually over a period of 30 minutes resulting in a much more natural wake up process than a regular alarm.

    Download ClockDS


    Usage
    --------

    Set the alarm time on the bottom screen by tapping the numbers to increase them. 30 mins before the alarm time, the program will beep once, and then every minute following, with the beep count increasing each time. (i.e. 20 mins before alarm time will beep 10 times, 10 mins before alarm time will beep 20 times). The volume for each beep will increase every minute. Once the alarm time has been hit, it will sound continuously at full volume for 30 mins.

    Controls
    ----------

    A - Stop alarm
    B - Toggle bottom screen

    yep we need sound customization (which needs mp3 decoding).
    Morningtimer is better(source available in MoonShell Simply addon DevKitARMr21)...

    The wake up process sounds soothing to the user, yet annoying to others in the house.

    Confirmation?

    Not if you close your doors.
    I've got the same feature on my phone, and I used it once when I needed to get up at 1AM to catch the ferry to England.
    It woke up everyone, and I almost missed the ferry because it took so long to get at a level at which it woke me up enough.

    awesome! this is just how I want an alarm clock! but does it work in sleep mode? Otherwise I might stick to the moonshell one.

    Hmm, no it doesn't seem to work in sleep mode yet (I'd not tried it since I use the top screen as a clock). Does the moonshell2 one do it? If so, I'll look into it. I'll probably overhaul this program completely at some point, I only wrote this in 20 mins before going on holiday to make sure I had an alarm clock that worked the way I wanted it to [​IMG]
