Now that the rumor mill can stay quiet for a few hours as Apple has unearthed iPhone 5, keynote press are making their way over to the demo units that are on-hand for their first look at the next-generation of iPhone. With a glowing consensus provided by press thus far, Apple has been true to their word announcing features as each addition was deemed to be a noticeable nicety in the few minutes that have been spent so far, making going back to the iPhone 4S all the more difficult. Previews have highlighted the display, with the increase in size and vibrance being welcome additions. These critics observed a significant decrease in weight immediately, with zippier performance also apparent after just a few minutes.
Orbicule — makers of apps like Undercover [App Store] — has just released a beautiful, innovative new alarm clock app called Melatonin. Melatonin [App Store, $0.99] is different from most other alarm apps because it helps you to wake up gradually, instead of jolting you awake with an annoying tone. The app does this by gradually increasing "sunlight," causing your body to stop producing melatonin. After the "sun" comes up, Melatonin will play peaceful nature sounds to wake you up. The result is an easier time waking up and a better feeling in the morning.
The app also aims to provide the same smooth transition into sleep; a sleep timer can play natural sounds or iPod music while the sun sets and the lights fade out.
