    "Long-time happy user, new version a big step up"

    December 01, 2011   |   By 7WX

    Version: Awaken 5.0.3

    Pros

    I've been using Awaken for years and just updated to the new 5.0x series. The new design is hot. I've always loved the fade-in, fade-out features, and it has always worked for me when I need it. I did experience a couple bugs when first using 5.01, and emailed the developer. I got emails back the same day, recommending a better setting for what I wanted, and notifying me about the new release, which fixed the other bug. You can't ask for better than that, unless you want to buy from some enormous corporation that can spend months on testing before release. (NOTE: be sure to install the helper app if you want it to wake your computer from sleep.)

    Cons

    I used to want the ability to launch items other than music, and now you can! So, nothing negative to report.

    "Unreliable"

    June 02, 2011   |   By doctor.lex

    Version: Awaken 5.0.3

    Pros

    Lots of features, looks nice, easy to use

    Cons

    Relying on it to get woken up for something really important is like playing Russian roulette.

    Summary

    As another reviewer has said, Awaken has become very unreliable since the last few versions. The most essential functionality - playing an alarm at the set time - is broken. On average it seems to work 75% of the time, which is unacceptable. It fails in so many different ways (computer doesn't wake, it wakes but the app does nothing, it wakes and tries to play music but gets stuck halfway?) that I wonder how well it was tested. Stay away from this one if you're looking for an alarm that you can count on.
