Aurora is an application to wake you and your Mac. Wake up every morning to the sound of your favorite iTunes playlist instead of that annoying alarm clock. When the night comes, no more need to count sheep. Aurora helps you fall asleep to the sound of your favorite tunes or a movie.
The best way to find out if Aurora suits your needs is to download the latest version and try the demonstration mode. Also, make sure you read the following to learn about all the amazing features.
Set up as many weekly or daily alarms as you need, select a playlist for each one and you're good to go.
Snooze alarm playback and get a few more precious minutes of rest before the alarm goes off again.
Aurora's dock icon shows you the next alarm time, even when Aurora is not running, so you can tell when your alarm will go off in a glance.
Your Mac is not within reach of your bed? No problem! Control alarm playback, volume and snooze using your Apple Remote.
Wake up to the morning's news thanks to Aurora's EyeTV support. Aurora can play both EyeTV TV and radio channels.
Aurora is available in 9 languages, including English, German, French, Japanese, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Russian and Chinese.
Have your alarms set up? Great. Now make sure to follow these three rules, as Aurora depends on your Mac to wake up properly and your speakers to be audible, else it cannot reliably play music amd wake you up.
Some notebooks won't be able to wake up if their lid is closed or if they aren't connected to a power outlet.
Leaving powered off speakers plugged in will turn your Mac completely silent.
