I also do not understand why they remove such things. Whats really perplexing is why we are never told about such changes. I don't think i changed phones when this happend so i have no idea what fix/upgrade got rid of the gradual increase. First, i find it absolutely unconsionable that it was removed at all. Apps don't remove functioality unless there is a good reason. Second, it should be explained in detail why it was removed. In my experience as a software developer, when the upgrade process is beginning one would be warned with a message such as THIS ALARM xyz THAT YOU HAVE SET AS "gradual increase" WILL NO LONGER BE SUPPORTED or something like that. It makes you wonder, did they even know that feature was there? Did some rouge developer decide he did not like it and he just deleted that feature? It would be funny if this was one time but i have an entire list of times that features are removed. Many of them causing real problems with apps used in business. And a whole other list of times navigation was changed for no reason.
