While your Android phone has a clock app with alarm function built-in, the Timely app takes it to the next level in terms of style and ease of use.

Timely connects with your Gmail account and syncs alarms with your other Android devices. You can choose between a digital, analog or a designer analog clock face. The app also gives you the option to choose among multiple color themes. There is also a handy night mode to save battery consumption.

On the top are three panels – Alarms, clock and Timer. In the alarm section, you see a timeline of the day on the left side of the screen. You can swipe from the edge of the screen and set the desired time by dragging a bar. The Timer panel shows a countdown timer – you can either set it for multiple of 15 minute interval or set it manually by sliding your finger on the timer clock face. After the timer is over, the app alerts you by playing a sound – you can choose from a number of available sounds for notifications.

Like any alarm clock, you can choose the snooze duration and the alarm volume. In addition, Timely also lets you set the snooze duration to shrink – interval between consecutive snoozes reduces to wake you up. You can also set fade-in duration for the alarm sound so that you are awoken gently.

The app does not show any advertisements.
