The stock alarm clock on the iPhone leaves much to be desired. The Rise Alarm Clock makes up for where the iPhone lacks by producing a minimal yet intelligently designed alarm clock that covers all bases. The alarm works like most other alarms by allowing you to set times for which you want it to buzz or play noise. The Rise makes this even more simple by allowing you to swipe the app to change times and allows you to set multiple songs and sounds for the alarm notice. You can also set up a playlist that will play for a certain amount of time until you go to sleep while still keeping all of the regular alarm settings. Once the alarm goes off in the morning you just swipe the screen to turn it off. You can get the app for $1.99 in the iTunes store.
