■ #1 in the category in 68 countries, including Germany, France, and South Korea.
■ To turn it off, you have to go to the pictured place and take a photo.
■ "Alarmy" Forces you out of bed
■ How to turn off the alarm?
- Register a place where you want to turn off the alarm.
- When alarm starts ringing, you will have to go to the registered place and take a picture.
e.g.) If bathroom is the registered place, wake up and take a picture of the bathroom.
Alarmy (Sleep If U Can) is the innovative solution for those who just can’t seem to get up on time, even with an alarm clock. This app has been cleverly designed to force you to get out of bed. You set it up by registering a photo of an area or room in your house. Then once the alarm is set, the ONLY way to make it stop ringing is to get out of bed and go take a photo of the registered area.
The World’s Most Annoying Alarm
Dubbed as “the world’s most annoying alarm”, Alarmy has quickly become a favorite mobile app among users. It has been featured in Gizmodo, Cnet, and at Huffington Post, and is currently Number One in its category in 33 countries, including France, Germany, and South Korea.
Users are truly enjoying this app and many have devised their own unique methods around the alarm’s requirements. For instance, you could register the foot of the bed as your location, then you would only need to wake up enough to take a pic of the foot of your bed and then go right back to sleep. Of course, this totally circumvents the whole purpose of the app but has become a fun pastime for many users.
Works Better Than Other Alarm Clocks
Other creative locations that users have come up with include the ceiling of their room, a nightstand, or the floor. If you’re more serious about really getting up on time, then how about registering the bathroom sink or an item in the kitchen?
Though the app has sparked lots of interest and has proven to be really entertaining, it will definitely get you out of bed. If you absolutely MUST get up on time for an important appointment or job interview, then this would be the perfect solution.

Close to perfect, but needs minor updates
As others have pointed out, and I'm in the same boat, there appears to be a SIGNIFICANT battery drain with the app, even with the update posted 2/19. Since my phone is on a charger most of the day it's not as big of an issue to me as it may be to most, so that's a problem.
Other minor issues include: no snooze options for the camera dismiss options (workaround: set a 'standard' alarm for the first snooze time, and the picture alarm for the time you NEED to be up). Also, some other features would be nice like being able to set the 'silence' window so that if your picture destination is far away it allows you to keep it quiet (to not wake kids, roommates, neighbors) while getting to the destination, and having a complicated master override in case an alarm goes off while not at the picture destination (an example would be forgetting to turn off an alarm while on vacation away from picture destination).
Other than that, app works as advertised, and was successful for me, like advertised. If waking up is your issue, this app will solve the trick. Great start!
The only thing that gets me out of bed
I've tried so many different ways of getting out of bed in the morning -- moving my alarm clock across the room, other apps (sleep cycle, carrot) -- all of them resulted in me snoozing for way too long. I hate this app, but it's amazing. I curse it every time it goes off knowing that I can't make it stop until I walk down 3 flights of stairs. By that point I'm awake and love it again.
Thanks for making a product that really works!
"Picture Doesn't Match" problem
Is anybody else finding it difficult to match the photo? Instead of waking up and getting ready right away I literally had to spend almost 10 friggin mins to keep taking the picture until it matches. And neither can I just ignore it because it won't just shut up. Hope the sensory/angle sensitivity whatever will be improved.
