Climbing out of bed can be one of the most difficult parts of the day. Alarmy will ensure you get out of bed—by force, if necessary. Alarmy is an interactive alarm clock. To stop the alarm, you will need to complete a task. Here are some example tasks you need to complete:
- Take a photo. Before you set the alarm, you take register a part of your home by taking a photo of it (for example, the bathroom sink). To get the alarm to stop ringing, you must take a picture of that part of the home (in this case, the bathroom sink). In most cases, this will force out you out of bed.
- Shake the phone. While a bit unconventional, this method can give some vigor to your morning. Once the alarm starts ringing, shake the phone until the alarm is dismissed.
- Solve a math problem. To dismiss the alarm, you will need to solve the prompted math equation. Solving a math problem will take some brainpower when you first wake up, giving you the stimulation you need to remain awake.
