To help all the students, teachers and parents wake a little more beautifully as the school season starts, we’re offering WhisperWake available as a free download for a limited time.

Introducing WhisperWake – The Most Beautiful Way to Wake

Wake Gently
WhisperWake’s alarm pattern was carefully and purposefully designed for anyone sharing their bed with a spouse or child, so that when the time comes for you to wake, you do so gently while everyone else stays fast asleep.

Wake Naturally
WhisperWake uses sounds captured directly from mother nature to offer you a soothing and natural way to wake in the morning. Choose from the soothing sounds of the seashore to birds calling across the meadows.

Wake Beautifully
WhisperWake uses a combination of beautiful fonts, sounds, colors, and animations to subtly and peacefully put you to sleep and wake you in the morning.

Choose from three alarm types:

(Our signature WhisperWake gradually increases volume to slowly and gently wake you, complimented by subtle vibrations)

Sound Only
(A more traditional alarm setting, this uses only your selected alarm sound to wake you)

Vibration Only
(Ideal for waking up without startling anyone else in the bed, this alarm uses only subtle vibrations to wake you)

Choose from 15 different sound options:

• Abaco
• Blue Colt
• Classic
• Davenport
• Farmingdale
• Goeys Pond
• Milford
• Montauk
• Montclair
• Old Forge
• Stone House
• Summit
• Tahoe
• Tanglewood
• Topsail

Fall Asleep Faster:
Use WhisperWake’s ‘Soothe Me To Sleep’ option to play soft and gentle sounds to help you fall asleep, including the soft sounds of rain, ocean waves, piano melodies, and a soft soothing lullaby.

Much more than just another alarm clock, WhisperWake utilizes a proprietary alarm technology that uses a blend of beautiful natural sounds that slowly increase in volume accompanied by subtle vibration which combine to gently wake you in the morning.

Download WhisperWake now, and wake more beautifully in the morning.

Magnet List PRO

Normally $1.99.

Going to the supermarket, we look in the fridge and write down what we need to buy, to shopping list. Most recently, shopping lists, notepads and papers moved into our smartphones. We’re, when we create our app, looking at “shopping list” differently.
In “Magnet List” app, to create a product, write in the search box: what, how much and at what price we need (only name is possible). After that, square magnet will appear with the initial letter of the product. Pull it to the right – and he’s in the shoping cart. Once again, the right – he is at home. On next time you will make purchase, you can look in the House section, and re-add it to the shopping list. So there is a circulation of products! Long press on magnet, in any section, will remove it. And if it need, it will be in the same form, when you start typing the name in the search. And of course, if you click on the magnet itself, you can make own product photos or choose from the gallery. Navigate between lists with left/right swipe. You should try it, to make sure that “shopping list” can be simple, but not boring. Also, you can choose color theme what you like. Enjoy your shopping!
