Heads-up deal seekers. Apple has named Tiny Hearts Limited’s “Wake Alarm Clock” its App of the Week for this week. This means that from now through next Thursday, you’ll be able to pick up the popular alarm clock app for free for both iPhone and iPad—a solid savings of $4.

For those unfamiliar with the app, Wake is highly regarded for its beautiful and intuitive design, and its range of various alarm modes. You can slap your phone to activate a short snooze, flip it to turn off all alarms, or you can set it so you have to shake your phone to turn all alarms off.

From the App Store Editors’ Notes:

Need a boost to get out of bed in the morning? Wake’s gesture-based alarms deliver wake-up calls you won’t ignore, letting you slap, flip, and shake your iPhone or iPad to hit the snooze button or turn off alerts. With a variety of alarm sounds to choose from—even your favorite songs—plus a streamlined interface that’s a pleasure to use, it’s a refreshing start to your day.

And here’s a clip that shows the app in action:

If you’re interested, you can find Wake Alarm Clock in the App Store for free. Note that there are several in-app purchases available, but they are just for additional alarm packs.

    with the rise in support and prevalence of third party apps that essentially replace stock apps, i really hope apple lets us choose what we want as our stock apps in iOS X. I never really use these apps as its much easier to open control center and open the clock apps from there. same goes for calculator apps

      Seconded. It drives me nuts that there are so many caveats for 3rd party alarms. I can’t even remember the rules about do-not-disturb, mute switch, and running in the background during the day – much less when all I really want is for my head to hit the pillow. Also, if they’re not going to give us sufficient 3rd party support the least they could do is allow us to set an independent alarm volume and snooze time in the stock alarm app.

        Rise is a good alarm clock app that I use often.

      • I like Sleep Cycle since it knows the perfect time to wake you up
