15 iPhone Alarms That Wake You Up Right Away

15 iPhone Alarms That Wake You Up Right Away

Do you struggle every morning to wake up on time?
Are you bored of the same old alarm clock?
Do you want to get up in the morning without being jarred awake by a noisy alarm?
Luckily, we don’t have to put up with the same old alarms.  Here are 15 different iPhone Alarm clocks, which can not only wake you up right away but can do so in creative ways.

Top 5 Creative iPhone Alarms

  • SpeakToSnooze Pro

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

    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

      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

        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

          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

            Advertising

            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.

                  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.

                  Advertising

                  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.

                      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.

                                5 Killer Online Journal Tools That Make Journaling Easier and More Fun

                                5 Killer Online Journal Tools That Make Journaling Easier and More Fun

                                Journaling is one of the most useful personal development tools around. Not only does it help us process emotions and experiences, work through internal conflicts and improve our self-awareness, it also provides us with a way to keep a day-to-day record of our lives. Traditionally an activity limited to pen and paper, the expansion of consumer technology has enabled journaling to go digital.

                                Saving your journaling entries online enables you to access them from anywhere, without having to carry a notebook and pen around, and provides you with digital features, like tagging and search functions.

                                Here are a list of five online journaling tools you can use to bring your practice into the modern age:

                                1. 750words

                                Advertising

                                750 words

                                  750words is a free online journaling tool created by Buster Benson. The site is based on the idea of “Morning Pages”; a journaling tool Julia Cameron suggests in her creativity course The Artist’s Way. Cameron advises aspiring creatives to start each morning with three pages of stream-of-consciousness writing to clear away the mental clutter, leaving you with a clearer mind to face the day.

                                  750 words is the three-page digital equivalent (assuming the average person writes 250 words per page) and lets you store all your journaling online. Each morning, you’ll receive a prompt asking you to write your 750 words, and the site keeps track of various statistics associated with your entries. The site uses a Regressive Imagery Dictionary to calculate the emotional content from your posts and provides feedback on features like your mood, and most commonly used words.

                                  750 words is simple to set up and is ideal for anyone who finds it challenging to maintain a consistent journaling practice. The site uses a number of incentives to motivate users, including animal badges awarded to journalers who complete a certain number of days in a row, leader boards, and opt-in monthly challenges.

                                  2. Ohlife

                                  ohlife

                                    Ohlife is designed to make online journaling as easy as possible. Once you’ve signed up for your free account, the website will send you an email each day asking “How did your day go?” Simply reply to the email with as much or as little detail as you like, and your response will be stored on your account, ready to view next time you log in.

                                    Ohlife’s appeal lies in its simplicity: no stats, no social sharing, no complicated organisational systems—the site is designed to provide you with a private, online space. Simply respond to the email each day (or skip the days you’re busy) and Ohlife will do the rest.

                                    3. Oneword

                                    oneword

                                      OneWord is a fun online tool that provides you with a single word as a prompt and gives you sixty seconds to write about it. The concept’s aim is to help writers learn how to flow, and the prompts range from the everyday mundane to the profound.

                                      Advertising

                                      Oneword is not a private journaling tool: if you sign up, your answers will be published on the site’s daily blog, which contains a stream of users’ answers, and might be used by Oneword in the future. If you’d rather keep your answers to yourself, you can still use the tool for fun without giving out any personal details.

                                      4. Penzu

                                        Penzu is a journaling tool that allows you to store your journaling notes online. The service also offers mobile apps for iOS, Android and Blackberry, so you can journal on the go and save your notes to your account. The basic service is free, however you can upgrade to Penzu Pro and get access to additional features, including military-grade encryption and the ability to save and sync data through your mobile, for $19 per year.

                                        With either version of Penzu, you can insert pictures, and add tags and comments to entries, as well as search for older entries. You can set your posts to be private and viewable by you only, or share them with others.

                                        5. Evernote

                                        Evernote isn’t a purpose-built journaling tool, however its features make it perfect for keeping your journaling notes in one safe place. With the ability to keep separate “notebooks”, tag your entries, include pictures, audio and web clipping, Evernote will appeal to journalers who want to include more formats than just text in their entries.

                                        Available online within a web browser, and as a stand-alone desktop app, the service also comes with a series of mobile apps covering almost every device available. These allow you to make notes on the go and sync between the mobile and browser versions of the app.

                                        For additional features, including text recognition and the ability to collaborate on Notebooks, you can upgrade to Evernote’s premium service, which costs $5 per month.
