Adding Challenges

This alarm clock comes with a lot of challenges (like a puzzle, games, taking pictures) that gives you tasks so you can't dismiss the alarm and go back sleep.

You can also add multiples challenges to your alarm. That way, when the alarm starts, random challenges will be assigned to the alarm and you never get bored.

Some of the tasks to the alarm are:

Picture Challenge

Using some AI stuff, the app can recognize a pre-select list of objects and can't turn off the alarm until you take pictures of pre-chosen objects or animals.

For example, always forget to drink water? Add a challenge to take a picture of a cup when it triggers so when it starts you have to stand up and drink water.

Smile Challenge

Simple like that, you have to wake up with a big smile, a huge one, and take a selfie. If you don't show all of your teeth to the camera, the alarm will never go out. Jokes book is recommended for this challenge

Memory Game

The classic memory game. Configure the board with the number of cards you want and, when the alarm starts, match the pairs on the board until you find out all the couples.

Math Challenge

If you think wake up early is annoying, imagine waking up early having to solve a math problem. Happily, that is the case 😁. Choose between levels of a math problem to solve when the alarm goes off and fry your brain out, trying to find out the correct number.

Retype Game

The app shows a list of characters at random and you have to write it in the exact order. Seems simple, but try to do that as soon as you wake up and see

Sequence Game

Complete this puzzle by tapping the shapes at the same order as it shines. Don't worry if you don't remember all at first, the alarm can repeat the sequence as many times you want.

Pose Challenge

Put the camera in a good place and do some pose, like yoga, to the camera.


Disable snooze or limit it, so you have to complete the challenges, or change the snooze duration to a tiny one, so you don't have any time to rest.


Don't like your phone vibrating like crazy when waking up? Me neither, that's why you have the option to disable it from the alarm and just listen to the beautiful song.


Choose between your favorite music, your phone ringtones, or no sound at all to wake up and configure the volume you want the media.

Soft wake

The media you choose will increase the volume gently until the sound you configured.

Dark mode

Change the theme of the app between light and dark mode any way you like.

Smooth increase volume

The volume of the alarm increases gradually until max, so you wake up gracefully

Extra loud volume

It will override the phone volume, increase it, and lock to its max.

Annoying mode

This option will not let you uninstall the app or turn off the phone. The only way to be free of the alarm is to complete the challenges

So far it's pretty good, Almost exactly what I was looking for actually. The only suggestion I can make for the Devs would be to add a toggle option that will detect driving mode. Nothing like trying to solve a challenge or multiple while driving to work on the interstate at 65+ MPH just to stop the alarm(bonus if it's connected to your cars Bluetooth).

This app has no screen pop-up like a normal alarm. No you wake up to the bs noise and then have to scroll through your app page until you find the app. And navigate through the awfully designed app itself and find a tiny button at the top. And differentiate between "dismiss and snooze" which when you're half asleep, mean the same thing. My god. Save your money and buy a real alarm clock and not this cash-grab dumpster app.

I love the idea. However, the volume is a problem. The dang alarm is just so quiet, and I can't figure out why. The volume is turned up all the way but the alarm is still so soft. If I turn on the override to max volume function, then it wakes up my wife and that's no good. If I could control the volume, then my rating for this app would be much higher.
