5 Effective Alarm Clock Apps to Wake You Up

Sometimes, an ordinary alarm isn’t enough to wake you up because you always find yourself having breakfast, grooming yourself, and changing your clothes in a 15-minute time span. Are you one of those people who find it hard to be a morning person? When waking up in the morning to go to work or do some tasks seems like a chore, maybe you need some help from these alarm clock apps.

Alarmy (Sleep If U Can), $1.99


This is actually dubbed by CNET as the most annoying alarm app ever. You need to set a location like your kitchen, bathroom, or wherever you want to turn off the alarm. When it rings, you need to take a photo of your registered location to turn it off. If you really want to make the extra effort, go and register your office as your location.

Wake n Shake, $2.99

Wake n Shake

Wake n Shake is as sadistic as Alarmy. When the alarm goes off, you need to wake up and shake the life out of your iPhone in order to turn it off. And you don’t only shake it once because you need to shake your iPhone until you reach the alarm meter. There’s no snooze button, so yeah, keep shaking vigorously!

Sleep Cycle
, $0.99

Sleep Cycle

The Sleep Cycle app will analyze your sleep pattern and create a graph to know if you’re in deep sleep, light sleep, or close to waking up. Then it will wake you up when you’re in the lightest level of sleep so you’ll feel fresh. This app will not only wake you up but will also give you your much-needed time in bed and ensure sleep quality.

RadiON, free


Do you miss the good old days of waking up to the sound of the radio? RadiON will bring back those days when you wake up to the sound of The Beatles blazing from your radio. Access Radio from all around the world and listen to news and music right when you wake up.

CARROT Alarm, $1.99


CARROT Alarm will be your “mistress”; it will make you do tasks like torture scientists or capture escaped monkeys. (Don’t worry, you don’t have to capture real monkeys and really torture scientists.) If you opt for the snooze button, your mistress will be angry and tell you how ugly and lazy you are. Ouch!

And that’s it! Five alarm clock apps to effectively wake you up. All apps stated above are available in iTunes AppStore. You may also want to browse our daily Apple deals in macmall.com.
