Timely is a Ridiculously Beautiful Alarm and Timer App That Also Syncs Between Devices to the Cloud

We don’t typically write up alarm clock apps because well, they aren’t the most interesting subject in the world. Alarm clocks are alarm clocks. In other words, they do our least favorite thing of the day – wake us up in the morning. But what if one was beautifully, if not masterfully designed, included more features than we had ever imagined an alarm clock app could have, and also synced between all of our devices through the cloud? Then an alarm clock app becomes interesting. Enter Timely Alarm Clock

Timely is a free app that can currently be downloaded through Google Play. It has an introductory $2.99 pricetag attached to its premium brother, but for anyone who uses their phone as their alarm clock, we strongly advise at least trying the free version for a bit.

The app features an incredibly beautiful design with all sorts  of swipe gestures baked in to help you maneuver from panel to panel or to set new alarms. It looks a bit like the stock Android alarm clock app at first, but is 10x more pleasing to feast your eyes upon. You can customize themes for its clock, alarm, and timer/stopwatch pages all individually, giving you the alarm clock of your dreams.

In terms of functionality, the most important feature (at least to me or anyone with multiple devices) is how Timely syncs to the cloud across multiple devices. With Timely installed on all of your tablets and phones, you can decide from a single device if you’d like the alarm to ring on individual devices or your entire lot. It’s like remote controlling of alarms. It’s pretty amazing, actually. It also happens instantly with some clever cloud work.

This app also includes Smart Rise (a feature to help you slowly wake from a sleep cycle), has a tablet UI, a widget, Google Now support, recurring alarms, adaptive snoozing, and even a DashClock extension. Seriously, this thing is feature packed and again, completely worth a look.

Oh, the developers also built in ways for you to unlock premium features for free, many of which involve sharing the app on social sites. So if you see Timely spammed all over Google+ today, you’ll know why.

    One other thing to mention as well, which IS available in the free version is that settings will sync across devices as well. I had my tablet and my phone sitting next to each other and changed the snooze length from my tablet from 7 minutes to 9 and saw it change automatically on my phone…This alarm clock is now my default go to alarm app.

    By the way, my code is: 9T7S-FRRQ-9ZQS. Please use it! This is a great app. I very likely may end up buying it.

  • Rudy Bistrovich III

    You can’t set a custom Alarm sound though? Am I missing something here? How can it have all those features but not THAT?

    • Open1Your1Eyes0

      This! I understand they want you to use the built-in sounds but they just HAVE to let you use your own if you want to anyways. Why would they restrict/limit you like this?

    • Xious

      Yup, I have been using Google’s Fermium sound ever since I found it. It is the perfect alarm tone for me. After playing around with the alarm app and finding that I couldn’t use a custom sound, I uninstalled it. As nice as the app is, if they shackle you in to using their tones and not letting you use your own, I don’t want to use it.

      • michael arazan

        I need a custom alarm that plugs into my headphone jack and applies electric voltage to wake me up.

        I’m still waiting for that mallet hitting alarm clock like in the old warner bros cartoon that hits you to wake up. I can sleep anywhere and through almost anything

    • Rudy Bistrovich III

      Well I suppose allowing custom alarms wouldn’t work so well with their cloud sync feature…but still…seems like a basic feature that should be there especially if you aren’t using cloud sync.

  • Nexus Lifestyle

    Guys… this is an alarm clock.. lets all relax.

  • fauxshizzl

    The only reason I don’t use the stock app for my alarms is the stupid clock icon that shows up at the top of the phone and never goes away when you have one set. Beyond that elegance in an alarm means little to me when I am being woken up.

  • KevinThorn

    Is there a “night mode”?

  • michael bourgoin

    the description says it will start showing ads after 5 days. Will it do that even if you buy the premium version? If so, i dont care how nice an ap looks, i dont want ads. I’ll pay for no ads, but if they dont go away, its a non-starter. Any info would be cool thanks

    • seko

      ads will not stay if you buy the right pack

  • Eric R.

    Who cares what an alarm app looks like. You don’t look at your phone while your sleeping.

    • jdhas

      /Pedantry

    • MikeCiggy

      The feature I like is the cloud sync of alarms. I flash a lot of roms and I always have to set up my alarms again OR not wake up for work. This will help me keep them always turned on and make sure I won’t miss an alarm.

    Got invited to the private BETA… the new alarm sound I wake up to is reason enough to keep using it, but the app is beautiful. They really do want you to upgrade though. Sharing the app can get you some free features though

  • chuckfu

    Does it have a night mode?

  • nb

    I don’t trust any non-built in alarm apps

    • Jason Downing

      this one has been pretty reliable the past 10 days

  • PhoenixPath

    Now just need to find a way to get it to open when pressing the clock face of CM’s clock widget…useless unless it serves as the default from any clock action.

  • Adam Truelove

    All the dark colors and transparency make it a bit hard to see/read the interface.

  • King Lo

    Jut installed it and I’m pretty much hooked. Ill see how well it does in actually waking me up though.

      I love Gentle Alarm, but I hate that when I flash a ROM, I have to back up gentle alarm. Then move to SD card. Then once ROM is flashed, move back to internal memory so I can restore to Gentle Alarm.
