[Free App] Can This Alarm Clock App Change The Way You Wake Up?
Facebook-linked Alarm Clock -- "I Will Wake Up!"
Getting Out of Bed Is No Longer Something Personal
Have we just found a new (and fun) way to wake you up?
Indeed, because no one else before us would imagine how Facebook can be involved in waking a person up... No one else before us is integrating a psychological factor, the "social pressure", into an alarm clock application.
How Is This App Different?
When we designed our alarm clock app, we wanted to have what others already have.
* The normal alarm function to ring on time -- checked.
* The phone ringing at top of the volume (you just have to deal with it) -- checked.
* Mathematic questions to answer when dismissing it -- checked.
We asked ourselves, "What else can we do?"
A genius in our team thought of adding some psychological approach to spice things up.
The same genius thought of "social pressure".
And the same genius thought of using Facebook to instil the "social pressure".
So here it is! The innovative, effective and fun "I Will Wake Up!" alarm clock app.
When you set an alarm, besides the wake-up time, you will also be asked to enter a solid reason why you want to wake up, and -- as a promise -- what happens if you fail to wake up (optional), and the help you need to get our of bed (optional).
And then you will post all this information to Facebook, to announce your determination to arise on time.
When the alarm rings, you needs to prove to the app that you are awake.
Whether you successfully do so or fail, the app will post your "challenge outcome" to Facebook.
Succeed the challenge, you win yourself time to be proud of yourself, and be free to show it off to your friends; But failed, be ready to face embarrassment.
Don't you think this is a good motivation to get you out of bed?
Why Do We Think This App Will Help You Arise?
Most likely your friends are waiting to see you fail the challenge (Yes, they are evil). Knowing this, don't you think you will do EVERYTHING to jump out from bed -- to avoid the embarrassment?
This is the "Social Pressure" we talked about, and are using to help you wake up. It works, really.
