Great app, until it wasn't
Update (see my original 3-star review below): When I updated to OS 8, I figured this app would be updated also, which it was. Gone was the bright Home Depot ads, but now I have banner ads WITH SOUND that plays in the middle of the night! Also, twice I've had an alert box in the morning that wants me to confirm loading some strange URL from Accordant Media for content from Vonage Mexico. This is a good app, but if they can't screen their advertisers and stop them from commandeering my speakers and attempting to send me to advertisers' Web sites, they're useless. I've now down-rated them to 1 star. P.S. See the P.S. On my previous rating. It applies to your new advertisers also. ========== I used this app every night for several months. Everything was great until about a month ago, when for some unknown reason, in the middle of the night the screen turns bright white with a Home Depot banner in the middle. This has happened three times, with many days between instances, and each time the bright light has awakened me. I darken the screen for a reason, and I don't appreciate some advertising screen lighting up the room. I've reduced my rating from 5 stars to 3 because of the problem. Unlike most people, I don't automatically go to a 1-star rating because of something I don't like, especially after I've been happy with an app for several months. I will stop using the app until it's updated, however, because I really don't care to have my sleep disrupted. I'll find another app with the same functionality (there are dozens, you know), and during my hiatus from this one, I may just decide I like the other one better. P.S. Regardless of what Home Depot is paying for their ads, it's not enough to compensate for pissing people off.

Not working like before
Not working with iPad air. Can't see the complete pop up windows to choose songs. Worked great before.
