What's New in Version 1.2.1
Hello again, minions!
My Maker allowed a daylight saving time bug to slip through because he's an idiot. At first I thought it'd be funny to just wake you all up an hour early, but then I remembered that I'm trying to become a kinder, gentler malevolent supercomputer. So I fixed this bug for you.
As further proof of my magnanimity, I also squashed a bug that prevented some meatbags from turning off my alarm if they were running iOS 7.
Am I not merciful?
AM I NOT MERCIFUL?
Worthless for aggressive snoozers
I was SO excited for this app. That being said, it actually isn't nearly as aggressive as I need. I tend to snooze for an hour or more and was hoping this app would do the trick. I've had 2 major problems with it so far. 1: though it actually did wake me up the first morning I used it, I managed to snooze for 55 minutes before she stopped letting me and forced me to do my "chores" to turn it off. The tactic worked, but 55 minutes? Really? She can harp at me all she wants, when I'm half asleep and my bed feels comfy and warm I am SHAMELESS at snoozing. I mean, I walk across my room to snooze my conventional alarm clock then walk back to bed, crawl in, and fall instantly back to sleep until the next snooze goes off. I need this app to max out at a snooze or two and then force me out if bed to be useful. 2: After that first day I set my iPhone alarm as backup and now Carrot leaves comments on my screen (like, "I guess you're dead.") but the actual alarm has either been too quiet or hasn't gone off at all. I checked my settings the following night and had the same results. My conventional alarm clock eventually woke me, after snoozing for an hour as usual. I think this app has potential, but needs settings that can be aligned with what your morning weakness is. If I could set the snooze allotments and make sure this app actually goes off, I think I could love it. But until then it's no better than anything else I've tried.
I love Carrot it is like having Portal's evil computer wake you up.
I am usually difficult to awaken and very cranky when I do. This is not something that happens now that I have Carrot. Her alarm is loud and just annoying enough to awaken me and the silly description of what your task is accomplishing puts a morning smile on my face. She sends you reminders in the evening to be certain you set her properly for the next day. She calls you meat bag and berates you but it just sounds so funny coming from an i pad that I can't help but laugh! The first day I had her she woke me with a wonderful poem. I do wish I had the option of hearing that again! She looks and sounds like the evil computer from the Portal video games. When I did have a minor issue Carrot's maker was swift to assist me in solving the problem. If you like to wake up with a smile then Carrot is for you.
Great concept but ineffective for me unless...
This app would be perfect if there were tasks for snooze. My problem is I DON'T want to wake up in the morning so I just hit snooze for 1 to sometimes 3 hours to AVOID the chores. I don't care if I lose "points" or how "mad" I make carrot by snoozing I'm too tired to care. If Carrot would force me to work my brain a little more every time I hit snooze then I will definitely go back to using it but until then it's completely ineffective on waking me up.
Also, expand more on the Facebook integration. Let me allow the app to automatically post to Facebook if I've hit snooze too many times "Dear Facebook friends, I can't wake up to save my life. Please help!!!" Maybe ppl will call me, text me, bang on my door, etc to help me which would be great bc I need all the help I can get every morning.
I seriously want to get better at waking and I have faith this app could change my life if these suggestions were implemented.
