What's probably the most beautiful alarm clock application for Android - doubleTwist Alarm Clock - received a fairly major update today that brings quite a bit of functionality to the app.

Some of the most notable new features are the addition of a Nap alarm, which allows the user to quickly set an alarm for anywhere between one and sixty minutes; the option for Quiet Mode, which automatically disables ringers and vibrations for eight hours prior to an alarm going off (brilliant!); and the increasingly popular option for voice actions, so you can tell your alarm when to go off.

Aside from those biggies, the DT team also added a third dim state (toggle-thru), as well as the option to have the alarm play a random song.

Overall, this is a pretty feature-rich update that adds some fantastic functionality to an already-elegant application. Hit the link below to grab it.

    I have not figured out how to use the voice options.

    I wish they give you more time to try out these apps. 15 mins is not a reasonable amount of time to decide if you want it or not when it is an app of this nature.

    While it really looks great, it doesn't have the great features of Alarm Clock Plus. Math to snooze, math to turn the alarm off. Just about everything for that app is configureable. And while it looks somewhat bland, I can live with that considering that I do not spend a lot of time looking at it.

    This is by far the most beautiful alarm app! Also, it is complex enough to be cool, but not overwhelming with a lot of crazy unneeded options like a lot of apps out there who try too hard.

    This has been my daily alarm for about a year. Love it. I think this update just makes more to love.

      Same. I love this app, and the updates are fantastic.

        How do I use "voice actions"?

      Same over here. The upgrade phase of this app is also second to none. Major additions with a minor version change. Also integration with dT's Music Player is first-class. Absolutely worth buing!

      And no, I don't work for doubleTwist.

        And in addition, the live wallpaper is just gorgeus. You almost want to wake up in the middle of the night just to see it...

    will the jellybean voice actions set an alarm using this or will it always be the standard clock app?

    Haven't used the app but noticed it does not have timer and stopwatch functionality. Would have purchased it in a heartbeat if it did.
