Customer Reviews

Great app but pay VERY careful attention to directions

I initially wrote a 1 star review for this app because I couldn't get it to work properly. I thought I set it correctly the first night but my phone was still on silent, so nothing happened. Second night I made sure the volume was up but I only received push notifications instead of the alarm going off, so I overslept by 2 hours. The third night I set other alarms and decided to give this one last chance as a backup and I'm very glad I did! The key to using the app is that you have to have it up on your screen, then you can put the phone in sleep mode (hit the power button). The alarm went off on time, vibrating, strobe light on and music up just like I was hoping for. I would have given it a higher rating but I basically had to figure this out on my own - there's a quick instruction screen when you first use the app but once you hit ok you can't access it again. I couldn't find any troubleshooting or faq info on the developer's website either. It has a ton of potential but they have got to give better instructions!


This is the app I've been looking for! I've used it for a week now and it's worked flawlessly. It's a great happy medium between regular alarms (actually, even those "smart" alarm clock apps didn't work for me) where you can hit the snooze button and those other crazy alarms that require taking pictures of things to turn it off. The alarm goes off (I use the Drill Seargant sound), I shake the thing and I'm up. The "nap" feature is awesome too...if I want to just close my eyes for 20 mins, I don't have to setup a whole new alarm.

Stopped working correctly since iOS 10

Still my go to wake up app, but since iOS 10 it stopped working properly. If you leave it open it should stay open and go off in the am. Now it crashes overnight and sends alerts on your lock screen but you have to open the app again to shake it off. If you accidentally leave your phone on vibrate you're screwed, unless you're a light sleeper – and if you are, you don't need this app.
