"Best Alarm Clock App" - Lifehacker.com
Apple Staff Favorite and iTunes Rewind 2010 Top iPhone Productivity App! Featured by the New York Times, CNN, Business Insider, AppAdvice.com, and many other publications.
With music alarms, a built-in sleep timer, weather info, customizable photo backgrounds, and even an included shake-on / shake-off flashlight, Nightstand Central turns your iPad into the ultimate bedside hub.
Wake up to your favorite tunes and drift into sleep a little easier with an included sleep timer that lets you play everything from music playlists to relaxing sounds to audio books or podcasts. If you need to get up in the middle of the night, just shake to toggle the included flashlight, and shake again to turn it off. And when you wake up, see the current weather conditions before you even get out of bed.
Nightstand Central is equally at home away from the bedside, as well. Set your iPad in a stand on your desk or coffee table and use it as a beautiful photo frame with heads-up time and weather information.
Almost everything about Nightstand Central can be tweaked to fit your personality, for example:
-Pick wallpapers from your Photo Album and Nightstand Central will automatically cycle the background image among these how ever often you'd like. You can mix and match your own photos and any of the gorgeous included wallpapers, as well.
-Set up different music alarm playlists for different days. You can even make your alarm gently fade in - it's all up to you.
-Configure the clock / weather HUD to make it bigger, smaller, centered, or move it off to one side or the other, whatever suits your fancy
So throw away your boring, standalone alarm clock, and replace it with something that truly stands out - your iPad and Nightstand Central.
