Morning Worm puzzle alarm clock

The Morning Worm alarm app will make sure you're out of bed when you need to be.
Attention night owls (also, compulsive snoozers, heavy sleepers, and post-wake-up nappers; ambitious people in general who like to play hard but also need to work hard the next morning):
To reach your peak of productivity, Morning Worm will transform you, practically overnight, into the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed early bird that somehow always seems to get that darn worm before everyone else is even out of the nest. Fret not, young padawan; this transformation is easy and painless (in a relative sense, of course).
The Morning Worm app is a novel and innovative approach to waking you up in the morning – and making sure you stay up. No more missing class; no more being late to work; no more alarm clock on the other side of the room.
At the sound of the buzzer, Morning Worm will require you to complete a "trigger," an objective of sorts that will engage your mind and activate your senses when you'd otherwise be bleary-eyed and glum. And as if that weren't enough, the default alarm sound is a blaringly loud siren to ensure that you at least open your eyes in the morning. (Hint: you can sidestep the siren for your own music if you really want to).
Complete the trigger and you will be greeted with the pleasantness of an early morning calm, or the continued groove of your own preselected beats. Then, get up, get dressed, and embark on your most productive 24 hours to date. But don't forget to brush your teeth first.
- Wake up to any song from your iPod library (choose some appropriate tune-age; we like "Wake Your Mind Up" by 311)
- Choose from several triggers to light a spark in your noggin: Jigsaw puzzle and Shake & Wake come preloaded
- Stop your music after completing the trigger, or let the beats guide you out of bed as you dance and shimmy through your morning routine
- Download additional triggers from the Morning Worm Store
…And that's the Morning Worm.

What's New in Version 1.2.2
Minor bug fixes
Good morning world, and all who inhabit it!
It works! Like magic it works! Sure, it's the same puzzle everyday, and maybe a few other things can be perfected, like how you have to set it every day, but if you're struggling to get yourself out of bed in the morning this has all the needed components to get that done. Thirty seconds after waking up I am not only awake but aware, and I probably won't simply lie down in bed again. If you want different puzzles, which are totally unnecessary, by the way, they are only one dollar for an otherwise free app. Do you have trouble waking up? Then if you're still reading this, you're too tired to stop now and realize this is an app that's as important to you as sleep itself.
Best app I've downloaded
This nifty little app has woken me up without fail at times when I would sleep through a hurricane! I set my normal alarms and they get turned off without me noticing, but this one has a distinct alarm sound when the phone is locked, and after unlocked plays your choice of music. I use the puzzle (apparently I cheat the shake option) and it requires you to get awake enough to turn it off and then it's just discipline from there to get up.
I would love some new features and puzzles, but as far as raw functionality goes, this has yet to let me down. Best app I've downloaded, and I've downloaded a lot. Cheers
I love this app because it makes it almost impossible to go back to sleep by using triggers. I have to do a jigsaw puzzle before the alarm stops! You cannot snooze or turn it off until you complete the task you choose. I agree that there could be more triggers besides simple puzzles, like maybe a small word search perhaps. I use to set 6 alarms, spread them through the house. When they went off I would run around, hit snooze and then go back to sleep. And then repeat. This App MAKES you wake up by stimulating your brain. Love it!!!
