I've used Gentle Alarm for quite a long time now, but since the forced update have found that a lot of my settings were lost, and a lot of the more advanced options have now been removed - for example the alarm min / max volume levels.
It kept complaining that my pre-alarm was too loud (I had it set to 50%, which believe me is not loud enough to wake me) so I reduced it, and this morning I slept through the alarm entirely. Could someone suggest a replacement (free or paid) with these features?
No forced alarm duration setting - it should sound until I tell it to stop
'Gentle' features like starting off with low volume then steadily increasing over 30-60 minutes
Snooze time reduction (start off snoozing for 10 minutes, then 8 minutes, until I'm being nagged every 30 seconds)
Confirmation for dismissing an alarm (so I can't just sleepily prod at the screen until it stops)
I have an HTC Hero with Android 2.1
