Customer Reviews


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.

Great potential, if the alarm actually went off

Like the idea, if the app functioned as stated. The App says to have it in the foreground and open to work. I did just that and the alarm sent a tiny push notification, not the full alarm. Didn't wake up on time because of this.

Also the interface was confusing and did not follow common conventions.


Works well enough I wake up some but having a shake "rounds" option would do the trick. Having to reach 100% multiple times to shut it off.
