Do you want to get up in the morning without being jarred awake by a noisy alarm?

Top 5 Creative iPhone Alarms
- SpeakToSnooze Pro
Nominated Reason: Voice Control
The ad for this app on iTunes boasts, “Control your alarm clock without EVER having to touch your phone or open your eyes!” I’m a lazy person, especially during winter mornings. If I can stop that annoying alarm by speaking “Snooze alarm,” then I’m all for it. With this app, you’ll be able to communicate with your phone, to either put the alarm on snooze or ask what time is simply by speaking to your phone.
- Wake N Shake
Nominated Reason: You have to shake it to turn it OFF
The only way to shut it off is by shaking the iPhone like crazy. No snooze button. You can’t lower the volume. It’s an alarm with no mercy. Its a harsh but effective way to wake a person up. I can vouch that this app works after I installed it and showed up to work a half hour early the next day.
- Mission Alarm Clock
Nominated Reason: Complete Mission to OFF
Think about it, your alarm clock is screaming and you reluctantly stretch your hand out of your warm blanket just to stop it and go back to sleep. It’s too easy and that’s probably why a lot of people are late or rushing out the door in the morning to get to work. However, with this app, the only way to stop this screaming monster is to open your eyes and focus to complete missions like math and shake.
- Sol: Sun Clock
Nominated Reason: Best Travel Tool
I am going to Thailand next week and this app can show the golden time to take photos outside and the location. Not only is it a handy travel tool, but It also can be a portable alarm clock if you want to wake up when the sun rises to go for an early morning jog.
- Rise Alarm Clock
Nominated Reason: One Shake to ON/OFF
There are multiple merits for this app, appreciated by Mashable, Fast Company Design, Lifehacker, TUAW, Business Insider, The Loop, App Advice and many more. However, it can be snoozed or turned off by only one shake of the iPhone from lock screen. It also has 3 beautiful large clock styles: Night mode / Skyscape / Transparent (Live camera) with other personalized functions. With 4.5 star with 2353 reviews, it’s well worth the purchase.

- Yocto Alarm Clock
Nominated Reason: 70 Built-in Melodies
As the old saying goes, the best way to ruin a song is to set it as alarm melody. I don’t want to ruin my iTunes music and you probably don’t either. This app saves you from having to do that with 70 built-in melodies to wake you up properly.
- iDigital Big
Nominated Reason: Geek’s Favor
Both the icon and the description in iTunes are apparently advertising that this app would be the geeks’ favor. Even you’re not a so-called geek, the clear LED screen alone would make it worth downloading this app, especially if you have a hard time reading in the dark.
- Sleep Genius
Nominated Reason: Train Your Brain
Toted as “The Sleep Genius app, developed by experts in neuroscience, sleep, sound, and music following our research helping NASA get astronauts to sleep.” If all of us use this app, will we get up at 7:00? Or will the standard working time move from 9 o’clock to 7 o’clock? This app can train your brain with a healthy alarm based on different sleep phases.
- Best Flash Light
Nominated Reason: Front Camera Flash Light
Most of flash app supports the back flashlight, therefore if this alarm clock can show something special, it’s worthy to be nominated here. This morning alarm has front flash light which is transformed by your front camera.
- Sleep Time
Nominated Reason: Detect Movements
This app has a sensitive ‘accelerato-meter’ which can detect your whole night movements that reflect your phases of sleep. It will then set off a alarm at the suitable moment, automatically. Much like a considerable baby-sitter, it’s impossible for you to wake up from a deep sleep feeling groggy again if you use this app.

Ok, this is a selfish recommendation, because my uncle is living in Mexico, he highly recommends this app because it can broadcast almost 30 channels via Radio function. If you live in Mexico and also want to share the latest radio news, this is the app for you.
