Do you often oversleep? It might be worth getting an alarm clock.

RISE ALARM CLOCK

£1.49 iOS

It may be March, but spring still feels a long way off. Rise Alarm Clock aims to make those cold, dark mornings a bit less horrible. It has a pretty interface and an alarm with a gentle fade-in so it doesn't make you jump when it goes off. With gorgeous graphics and inspirational 'start the day' quotes when you turn off snooze, it does make those moments before your first coffee a bit easier. But £1.49 seems a bit steep for something your phone does already.
