Rise, an alarm clock app optimized for both the iPhone and iPad, has been named Apple's App of the Week and can now be downloaded for free. The app distinguishes itself from the stock Clock app found on iOS in that it allows for the user to set alarms with dragging gestures and also features the ability to set alarms with individual audio from a device’s library or an iTunes playlist.
The app also features interchangeable themes for its user interface and integration with the "Do Not Disturb" feature in iOS. Previously, the app made Apple's "Featured Apps" list, and was the best seller in the Utilities category in the App Store.
Rise is a delightfully simple and unique alarm clock, for your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch. With its refreshing and clever way to set time, Rise is one of the simplest alarm clocks you'll ever use.
Rise is a universal app regularly priced at $1.99 that can be downloaded from the App Store for free until next Thursday. [Direct Link]

And nothing beats simply telling SIRI to set my alarm for 8AM.
You know what? You're right.
I set the alarm and did exactly what I do every night; turned on DND and turned it on vibrate.
The alarm went off but it was silent. I had 3 notifications on screen saying I needed to rise and shine, no tones. That does me no good.
Next, turned off DND and left it on vibrate. Alarm went off, no sound & not vibrate, notifications okay, and again, useless.
Finally, left DND off, left the sound on. Nothing. Just an on-screen notification.
This app is useless as long as it requires the phone to be unlocked (on) and not set to DND.
I deleted it.
Hah! Nothing beats getting my wifes elbow in the ribs at 6AM while she yell:
Get up, you lazy bum! :D
What do you mean?
