You know you’re a heavy sleeper if the stock android alarm app won’t make you budge from your sleep. And if does, the only thing you do is snooze it, dismiss or shut down the phone then get back to slumber land. If you have consistent difficulties wake up early when you need to, there are a number of specialized android alarm apps that are designed just for you. These are ‘toughened’ alarms that won’t shut up until you can prove that you have really gotten out of bed.
Alarmy has already secured its place amongst the world’s most annoying alarm clock apps, and that just serves your purpose. It won’t let you get back to bed, at least not with peace of mind. The idea is to tackle (and get it right) a number of maths problem. You can configure the difficulty of the questions that you want to answer before the alarm can mute. Rest assured though that you’ll have dropped your sleepiness by the time you’re through with the last question. Alternatively, you could also choose to take a picture of a distinct object such as a wash basin, microwave or anything else that you can’t reach from inside your sleeping quarters. The app registers the picture and you’ll need to wake up, take a walk and capture the same object again in order for the alarm to stop ringing. This is the world’s number one kickass Alarm app, and it’s pretty straightforward.
This Android alarm clock app is pretty much similar to Alarmy in that it forces you out of bed so that you can snap a picture. But instead of capturing the microwave, wash basic, etc, it asks you to scan barcodes on the morning serials or toothpaste you use in the morning. You can also set up a daily routine. For instance, you can take a scan the barcode on the toothpaste then do the same on a packet of milk 20 minutes later. The point is to prove that you’re making progress and getting ready to go to work. The app’s visual appeal and interface are simply stunning.
Most people need a push to get out of bed in the morning. Puzzle Alarm Clock does just that. The app will present you with a different puzzle each day. The alarm only stops ringing after you have successfully tackled the day’s puzzle. You can choose from a wide range of puzzles, including maths, memory, and pattern-based ones. There are three difficulty levels that you can specify from, based on what you’re comfortable with. This alarm app is also equipped with a QR code, and an NFC-based alarm disabling option. It also gives you a go-to-bed notification so that you don’t really have any excuses when it does its thing the next morning.
The early bird catches the warm. Don’t let sleepiness ruin your plans for the day. Install a tough alarm app
on your Android Smartphone and you should be ready to shed the bad habit!
