    do you have to keep this app open for it to work? i know it can be in sleep mode, but if i get a text in the middle of the night i don't want to have to re-set the alarm, or forget to re-set the alarm. thanks for your answer.

    if this must stay open. How is it useful at all? you get a text or a call and your f'd in the a. Or does it just keep going although the missed call thing in on top of it? If not... sounds fail.
    Go Ahead. Hit the Thank button... it wont bite.

    How is that a problem? The app "remembers" the alarm settings, so once you complete your text or call you simply restart the app. It's not as if you have to open the app and re-enter your settings.

    Not really. A text will cause a popup to appear and doesn't close whatever app you're running. Similarly, when I'm in an app and receive a call, as soon as the call ends my phone goes right back to the app.

    Just sayin.'

    Anyway, with Backgrounder on a JB phone this shouldn't even be an issue.

    One other thing to point out. If you do not want to be awaken by push notifications or other alerts, you can put your phone on vibrate mode. The alarm music will still play at the appropriate time even though you are in vibrate mode.

    Also, we have created the app to run in sleep mode so you may optionally lock your device and turn your screen off if keeping the screen on is an issue for you.

    The upcoming update also includes a new "night display mode" which I think many of you are really going to like.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone!

    AlarmTunes 1.2 Summary



    Waking up to your music just got even better! In our continued efforts to meet our customers needs we are extremely excited to announce the latest update to AlarmTunes. Here is a brief overview of the new features found in 1.2:

    Landscape Mode
    AlarmTunes now works in both portrait and landscape orientations. Now enjoy a nice large clock that takes advantage of the wider screen width and a minimalistic design.

    More Control
    Now you can easily navigate your selected playlist with simple swipe gestures. Swipe right skips to the next track, while swiping left will go to the previous track. It's that simple!

    Battery, Battery, Battery
    We chose to spend a great deal of development time optimizing battery consumption as we have learned many of our customers want to use AlarmTunes for long periods without being plugged in. You will surely notice a significant difference!

    Improved Performance
    Fixed an intermittent issue related to media not loading properly and audio not playing.
    General performance and stability improvements.

    The update is free for existing customers, and AlarmTunes is still priced at a remarkable $0.99 for new customers.

    Check out this great new version of AlarmTunes in the App Store!

    1) Implementation of user preferences via the iPhone OS settings application. Users may now:

    - Choose your own Snooze time
    - Configure the Music Sleep Timer
    - Enable/Disable Alarm Fade-in Feature

    2) Code optimization to ensure compatibility with iPhone OS 3.1.

    We hope everyone enjoys the update and we look forward to updating you on the next one.
