Wake Alarm Clock

Wake Alarm Clock

The simple stock alarm clock makes it easy to use, but it leaves you without a lot of features. The Wake Alarm Clock app uses a simple interface that is easy to configure, but it offers more options to let you control how you wake up -- or how you snooze your alarm in the morning. 

The Wake Alarm Clock app offers three ways to wake up in the morning. If you hate mornings, you will love the option to slap the screen to snooze the alarm. You can also turn the phone over to snooze or shake the iPhone until the alarm turns off. There's something satisfying about each of these options. 

The shake option requires you to shake the phone until you fill up a bar. This is a handy way of making sure you actually get up and move some. It's unlikely that you will turn it off on this mode while you are half asleep. 

Wake Alarm is $1.99 from the App Store and includes 12 alarm tones.

    If you have trouble waking up in the morning, please try using the alarm clock I made!

    It doesn’t turn off unless you get your heart rate up, so it practically forces you to wake up.

      To EVERYONE
      My biggest problem is that my Alarm and Ringer volume are the same and of course I turn down the volume at night, therefore I NEVER HEAR IT! So b 4 I download any alarm app I was wanting to know if the volume settings are separate for both the Alarm & Ringer. Thank you

    I like the alarm clock pro but I have a number of notifications set up on my phone and therefore it is very annoying to look across at the phone to see an email covering the screen. Am I missing a setting on the alarm clock pro or can someone please suggest an alternative. Ps I don’t want to change other settings on my phone each night to stop the emails. Paul

    I personally like Fred O’Clock the best. It’s impossible to snooze and works by making sure your brain wakes up. Once your brain wakes up, you don’t really feel like going back to sleep.

    I personally like Move alarm Clock by Raja Rupinder Singh the most. You have to move Alarm Clock to Stop position to turn alarm off which wakes you up in the process. It allows you to select your favourite iTunes Music as alarm tone. You also get Live Weather updates, flashlight on double tap, multiple alarm options and separate volume slider to set volume of your alarm. It will also work even if the app is in background.
