Ratings and Reviews
I’m Fairly Fond of This, But...
I have a tendency to sleep through my alarms, so I’m always looking for ways to make sure I’m awake. I really appreciate this app, I’ve been using it for about a week and it works for me. I mostly use the shaking activity, as it’s the most vigorous of the free activities, but it works pretty effectively. I enjoy the graphics, the colors, the cute little characters, and I love the variety and sound of the alarm noises.
My favorite feature of the app—I am absolutely in love with how persistent it is. There’s no snooze button, and if the alarm goes off and you just close the app or try to get off the screen, it keeps making noises and buzzing and sending you alerts and the only way you can turn it off is by completing the task in the app. It’s like a dog that wants to wake you up, and I really really like that. It’s so easy to whoosh away other alarms, but this one wants to make sure you’re awake and out of bed.
My biggest complaint by far, which I’ve seen echoed in a few reviews, is that the alarms don’t work when your phone is muted. I know a lot of people turn their phone’s sound off at night so they can sleep through Facebook notifications and whatnot, so finding out you slept through your alarm because you muted your phone must be terribly frustrating. Personally, I still set extra alarms on my phone’s clock app just in case, but sometimes you just want one alarm. If that got fixed, I’d give this a solid five stars.
Alarm Didn’t Shut Off
I downloaded this app because when I’ve found that when I wake up to my regular alarm I tend to hit snooze and fall back asleep immediately and then wake up hours later with no recollection of what happened. I hoped that requiring interaction to turn off the alarm would be effective in getting me out of bed and to class. I tried it over the weekend when I took a short nap and I have no idea what happened. I never set my phone on Do Not Disturb so according to other reviews there should have been no problem. But my alarm went off two hours after the time I had set it for and after I completed the initial task, it continued to ring loudly while asking me to complete the task again and again. Since the app is literally designed so that you cannot hit snooze, and I had never used it before so I was unfamiliar anyway, I know that the delay in the alarm was not my doing, partially also because I have never hit snooze for over two hours. After completing the task at least three times, the alarm still would not go off for more than five seconds so I completely shut down the app hoping that would end it. Somehow, it kept going despite the fact that I had shut the app off, even though it should have been restarted and turned the alarm off. I had to delete the app in its entirety to finally get it to stop. It was effective in waking me up, but only because it would not turn off the way it supposedly has been designed to. Never again.
People are using it wrong!
I think this app is great, but the thing I do not like about it is that 1) you need to have do not disturb off and 2) you have to open the actual app. It is difficult when you wake up in the middle of the night because you get a random notification on your phone from an app because do not disturb is off, that is why most people want it on.
Most people are saying that the app only gives you a small notification, that is why they are not waking up. Personally, I have an IPhone 7 and for it to work properly you need to go into your settings and turn on all the notifications and press persistent banners instead of temporary. If this does not work, then try some other setting in your phone. Try and set a temporary alarm on the app to see if it worked.
Again, ALL of the notifications need to be on, do not disturb off, ringer on, sound on, and then you will be good. It really is great when it works because I am the literal worst at waking up but this helped me wake up just a little bit more.
