Published on July 30, 2019 • by Thomas George Updated on May 4, 2023 • 9 min Read
“Morning Blues” isn’t new for us humans. Regardless of our physical location, the profession we belong to, or the bed we own, we all have faced it often. Something that annoys us more is the conventional Alarm tone that keeps ringing for eternity.
For rejuvenation, people indulge themselves in activities like tuning their radio to spiritual talks, motivational speeches, meditative songs in the first hour of quitting bed, and these have scientifically proven benefits. A survey by AhanaJournal reveals that people who practice Meditation daily were able to cut down the risk of cardiovascular issues by up to 50%.
Radio Alarm Apps on mobile phones have worked as bridges in recent years. The Apps have managed to integrate the Alarm functionalities along with the Radio stations to provide a perfect start to your day. Moreover, the soothing vibes have overshadowed the annoying age-old ringtones.
On a similar note, we had a golden opportunity to serve one of our clients with a similar app, which was way ahead of being called ordinary. Learn how our Mobile app development company led the Radio Alarm clock App development with success.
What is the Alarm Clock Radio iOS App?
Radio Alarm app development is solely focussed to provide the best start to your day. The application integrates all the features an iOS user seeks for in the initial hours. The application integrates multiple functions on the same screen allowing you to plan your next 24 hours, right from the beginning. It is a three-in-one app, that includes:
Gone are the days when users had to switch between multiple apps. A single app now does them all without affecting the individual functionalities. A user can set up to 5 alarms at once and can tune the radio stations for particular schedules. The users can have a check on the weather forecasts for the current and next 4 days for any region of their choice.
Doesn’t that seem like a perfect assistant to plan an awesome day? Here is how the app developed by our iOS app development company looks like:
>> The top part of the app displays the weather forecast.
>> The next part of the app shows the current time along with the day of the week and the Date.
>> The next part displays 9 favorite channels of the user, which can be edited manually on the user’s end. Users can swipe this section to manage the alarms they have added. All the alarm schedules can be checked with simpler swipes.
It is the Best Radio Alarm Clock App on App Store
The Radio Alarm App developed by us has started to gain recognition in a very brief period. Being marked more than 4 stars out of 5 on an average, it has started to accumulate respect among the iOS users. While designing a Radio App doesn’t seem much exciting, it was our special touch that makes it stand apart.
Features of the Radio Alarm clock App on iOS store
Here, we enlist the significant features of our iPhone Alarm Clock Radio App and the way it outstands the crowd.
Users can add up to 5 alarms at once. Instead of adding them by typing, we made it easier by simply tapping the pre-added numbers. The users can combine them to set their time with much ease.
In the following example, let us suppose that the user needs to set an alarm at 10.10 AM every day, except Wednesday. He can select 10 from the first column which is meant for Hour selection. He can select 1 and 0 from the next columns to add the minutes (the orange block in the picture).
Next, he can select the weekdays for inclusion or exclusion. He can finally select AM from the last box (marked with red borders in the picture).
Of course, tapping is way easier and faster than typing.
Start your day with music
This is the Unique Sell Point of this Radio Alarm iOS App. Users can either opt to stay with the conventional ringtones or allow themselves to wake up to their favorite music tunes.
Individual alarms can be allotted separate Radio channels or Alarm ringtones. Users can click on the option ”Wake to Music”. The very next screen opens up the option for users to add their favorite music source from the list of various Radio channels or pre-installed ringtones.
A long list of regional as well as national Radio channels
Our Radio Alarm Clock iOS App enlists a broad number of options as Radio channels. The list covers all the Radio channels across the 52 US states that are region-specific as well as for the nation.
Options like Public Radio and Talk stations allow the users to connect with several audio broadcasters. The exact number of available Radio channels is officially beyond 50000.
The app provides the users with a few pre-installed libraries, from which they can select their tracks. Options like “URL” enable the users to add custom links for the audio sources.
