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

              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.

                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.
