Alarm

 

Alarmy (Sleep If U Can) – Mission Alarm Clock App

Alarmy (Sleep If U Can) is the innovative solution for those who just can’t seem to get up on time, even with an alarm clock. Our alarm app has been cleverly designed to force you out of your sleep by giving you various missions. For photo mode, you set it up by registering a photo of an area or room in your house. Then once the alarm is set, the ONLY way to make it stop ringing is wake up from your sleep and go take a photo of the registered area. Also includes math problem mode where you have to solve math problems for the alarm clock to turn off. For “shake mode,” you have to shake a preset(from 30 to 999) amount of times for the alarm clock to turn off.
