Alarmy

Well as the name suggests it’s an alarm app. But wait its way more than that. It’s not your average alarm that gets shut off after just one touch. Probably the most annoying alarms you can find and hence the best app in this category out there. The user need to inter few things such as “are you a heavy sleeper, do u wake up easily, what type of alarm mission you want: easy, intermediate, hard”. These missions when set will turn off when you: select picture for answers, shake your phone, and the hardest of them all – a math problem before it stops ringing. The app has taken waking up as a mission and you can also set the app to not get uninstalled or deletion.

Additionally, the app allows you to set your favorite songs, fade away features and several other “missions” to go with such as “barcode mission”, shake mission”. The paid version is even more tougher than ever. This app will make you wake up for sure!
