Timely Alarm Clock update brings Lollipop fixes, Google Now integration and more
If Timely is your alarm clock app of choice make sure to head to the Play Store sometime soon, as a big update is rolling out as we speak. If you’re using a device running Android 5.0 Lollipop, you’ve likely run into some trouble with this app in the past (force closing, incompatibility with Priority Notifications). With that said, it’s been quite awhile since this app has seen any improvements, so the update to version 1.3 should be welcomed by all users.
First and foremost, the folks at Timely have fixed a ton of bugs and visual glitches found throughout the app, which should make your Lollipop-running device compatible again. Also added is the ability to set timers and alarms through Google Now, using either voice or text. The developers have included support for upcoming alarm notifications, support for the new alarm API to show the alarm icon as well as the ability to select your own sounds or music for your alarm or timer.
The update also brings a handful of nice visual improvements. The status and action bars, notifications and overview headers are all colored and take on the current theme that you have set for each page.
Take a look at the full changelog below:
- Select your own sounds
- Upcoming alarm notification
- Option to ask for the challenge to snooze
- Google Now support for timers and reuses alarms
- Android 5.0 adaptions:
- Colored notifications
- Colored status and action bar
- Colored Overview headers
- Support for new alarm API to show the alarm icon
