If you own a smartphone that features powerful loudspeaker then you should try out the below app.


This is one of the most useful apps that I’ve come across. Alarms set with this app can be turned off by shaking the phone n number of times or by taking an unlock picture.

Both these methods are unique and irritating. They’ll force you out of bed. Created alarms can be deleted easily and their ringtones can be changed manually.

This app can be configured to play alarm sound repeatedly. When you’re connected to WiFi or the internet, Alarmy will display ads. If you don’t like the theme color of this application, you can change it by navigating to the app settings.

I’ve recommended just one app because I think it is perfect for the job. I tested AlarmMom on my phone and I didn’t like it. To use its alarm feature, you’ve to choose a character.

To wake you up, a cute animation featuring this character will be played along with a background music. Even after choosing a character, I was not able to configure an alarm. Tapping on the choose button has no affect. When the internet or WiFi connection is active, you’ll see annoying ads in AlarmMom app’s dialog boxes.
