Lifesaver It's seriously the best method I've found of avoiding sleeping in, literally changed my life from always having to run out the door without breakfast, to being able to enjoy a leisurely coffee, newspaper and workout session every morning. There are a couple of similar apps out there, but this is definitely the most elegant, I like how it looks like the native Clock app. Using NFC tags is a lot less finicky than the other main methods of having to take a photograph or scan a QR code...
This app used to be great until I discovered I could simply reduce the alarm volume to zero without scanning a tag. It's useless now! Where did the developer go? The contact email is no longer valid. Would easily be worthy of 5-stars if this issue was fixed.
Useless with Marshmallow Not working on Android 6.0 because of Doze (androids battery optimisation system during screen off time). I need to turn the screen on for the alarm to go off. Not very useful for an alarm... It's a shame because it would've been great without this major problem
Excellent, better than Puzzle Alarm Elegant, functional, effective. Exactly what I wanted. Downloaded this as an alternative to Puzzle Alarm, which was having trouble saving NFC tags, and would just restart the alarm sound file when a saved tag was scanned, rather than dismiss (really, really annoying first thing in the morning). No issues whatsoever with this app on the other hand!
My favorite feature of this alarm is that, once the alarm is set, you can not change or turn off the alarm without using the NFC tag. With other alarms, i would wake up in the night or early morning and turn off the alarm before it could ring. You can't do that with this alarm. Which is great.
Great idea, but now unreliable. Alarm goes off 17-30 minutes later than set. Used to work great. Tried to email devs, but the email came back. The app may have been abandoned.
