Any suggestions for iOS apps that can set an alarm clock with Philips Hue support, other than Sleep Cycle?

I need something until Apple ties Homekit support into the Bedtime feature of the Clock app.

I can't help you with an app however I use a good morning scene that is set to the same time as my AM alarm via an automation. And I have a good night scene that I just use "Hey Siri" to activate when I'm going to bed.

What's your objection to sleep cycle? Works well for me.
The price. I am not paying my alarm clock as a service, and especially not at that obscene price. In fact, despite them having an extensive website, the price is not be found there!

I even payed for it before it became a service, well, tough luck for me, that money/functionality is now completely lost.

I'm not paying a service for Sleep cycle. Just bought the app and that's it. Use it with Hue lights for years now. Works perfectly.
When you say 'bought' the app, what do you mean? Because the app is free on the App Store, and the only way to 'buy' it in-app is through the service requirement - Which is a requirement for Hue support.

I bought sleep cycle years ago and got the premium services for free now. Just had to "reactivate inapp purchases" when the update came.

I use an automation at a fixed time though, just like cynics. It makes the lights go on, start up the coffeemaker, etc.
