CARROT is a hilariously twisted AI construct who wants nothing more than for you to get out of bed every morning. Her witty spoken dialogue, beautiful songs, and innovative wake-up system will have you starting each day with a smile on your face.
Unless, of course, you try to sleep in. Then you'll make CARROT upset.
Rest in Peace
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.
Brilliant when it works but unreliable
This intermittently doesn't go off even though I set it up the same every evening in the foreground when I lock my phone. I have had to start using the iPhone default alarm as a back up which defeats the point. When it doesn't go off it puts text notifications on the lock screen which make no sound so do not wake you up. She is supposed to go mad if you don't click wake up within a certain time so sleeping in by an hour was not expected. I woke up to find a series of irate but silent notifications on the phone. This is a pretty nasty bug and really lets the app down. When it has gone off I've been straight out of bed cos she is not nice at all when she's angry. I'm normally a really bad snoozer so I was finding this app brilliant until it let me down so now I can't rely on it which is a shame.
I love this app and the funny chores make me smile, however leaving it in the foreground rarely works. There's also no way to turn off the option of a snooze so quite often I'll accidentally press snooze. The alarm after snooze is then extremely loud which I get worried about waking up the rest of my family. All in all I'd say it's a fantastic app but if we could choose not to have a snooze option (I've never deliberately pressed a snooze button in my life), I'd give it five stars.
Great idea, but doesn't work.
It's a great idea, and the carrot humour is great. But time and again it doesn't work, no alarm just a series of angry notifications when I do finally wake up. I've used a rival alarm app (ie. Not apple), and that's worked pretty much every time. This is despite setting up as stated, top app open prior to lock.
It's a real shame, but if you can't make a reliable alarm, the point of it really, then it's pretty pointless.
A real shame.
