Shake yourself awake
Fun little alarm clock app that asks users to wake n shake. Heavy sleepers can set the shake difficulty higher to really get them up.
- “Using smartphones’ built-in accelerometer, the app allows heavy sleepers to set the difficulty level of the shaking required to turn the alarm off. A red bar moves along the screen to show how much more shaking is required to shut it off. The developers recently redesigned the app to make it more social, introducing the ability to compete with friends – either by wake up time or difficulty of shaking – as well as obtain 50 personal achievements for things like using the app 20 days in a row or moving to a harder level.”
