CARROT is the simplest alarm clock you’ll ever use. Just swipe up or down to choose your alarm time, then drag CARROT to the right or left to set your alarm. That’s it!
Wake Up in Style
CARROT will wake you up each morning with a mix of songs and witty spoken dialogue. She'll bribe you with ice cream for breakfast or threaten to kill a kitten if you hit the snooze button again. Her songs include fully-orchestrated hits like “Chiptune Overload,” “Smile or Else,” and “Won’t You Be My Minion?”
Obey Your Mistress
In exchange for waking you up on time, all CARROT asks is that you complete a few of her hilariously bizarre chores each morning. Shake to clean out the lab monkey cages, pinch to grant sentience to a toaster, and flip to mix a deadly neurotoxin.

What's New in Version 2.1
Meatbags! I come bearing a long-awaited update with lots of fixes and improvements.
- As long as you leave me open in the foreground, you can now lock your screen before bed and my alarm will still sound - even with Silent or Do Not Disturb modes enabled!
- My alarm will no longer get blocked from going off because of a calendar alert or an iOS update.
- I'll actually allow you to turn your flashlight off after you turn it on.
- Meatbags who use me with external speakers or headphones can now set more sensible defaults for my alarm output.
- All the daylight saving bugs my idiot Maker introduced in past versions should finally be squashed. (Famous last words.)
If you’ve been enjoying our special time together, please take a moment to leave me a review in the App Store! I’d be ever so grateful.
Overall I love the CARROT apps, but this one falls short. It always talks loudly whenever you just open the app, which is very annoying. It must be left open, with the phone sound on, to actually wake you up. If you leave the app open but forget to take your phone off silent or forget to turn the volume up, it won't wake you up (it only buzzes if the sound is off). Once you open it, the app turns the sound wayyy up which seams unnecessary. It always says "the time is 12:00" no matter what time of day it is. I love the idea of having to do certain "chores" to shut it off, but it doesn't need to literally speak them. There should be a way to shut the voice off permanently. Reading the chores is enough, plus it ensures that you have to actually open your eyes! I find myself setting a backup alarm every day because I usually have my phone sound off all the time and usually forget to turn it on even if I remember to leave the app open. I really want to like this app but it definitely needs improvements to actually be a reliable alarm.
Pretty nice app. Has its flaws.
This app is really nice for an alarm clock. It has changing, various music tracks to wake you up so it's never too monotonous, it can get interactive just before you go to bed, and it really knows how to push your buttons when you don't push its. But it has some...flaws. Unless you leave the app open, the alarm just doesn't seem to work, as in it just never seems to go off. That presents the problem of not being able to actually wake you. The other thing is that it uses a leveling up to unlock things-system, which usually gets you like 100 points per wake up. But if you SNOOZE, it takes about 50 points away instead of adding any, which if you're a heavy sleeper, is a major issue. However I think you can farm points to level up by setting random alarms and then "waking up" to them to level up faster, or use it as a regular alarm system.
I used to love Carrot Alarm, but over the last year or so it's become too unreliable to use as an alarm. I've been using it in tandem with the default alarm, because of how frequently it does not go off. That was annoying enough, then it started having issue in which it would go off on time but it would immediately go into hard mode as though I'd slept through it and was shutting it off late. The last straw for me was the word scramble chore. I've never like having to unscramble a word with no hints first thing in the morning but over the last two days I got letters that could make more than 1 word (salve, slave, vales, etc.) I think 'slave' was probably the correct answer but not what i saw first so I got it wrong. Additionally I got 8-9 letter words the last two days. I don't know about you but I can not unscramble that amount of letters with no context as soon as I wake up (if at all)... In summation, it used to work very well, but now it's unreliable and annoying certainly not worth paying money for an alarm that may or may not go off!
