Pros

  1. When the alarm rings, you can use your voice to stop it. Say anything you like, as loud or soft as you want: A!arm will listen to you. You can stop the alarm completely, or let it snooze for a couple of minutes.
  2. built in “Sheep-Count-Game”
  3. Test every morning if you’re fully awake by playing the wake up test!
  4. Share with your friends on Facebook and followers on Twitter that you have started your day.
  5. 3 microphone sensitivity modes- High: no need to raise your voice to stop the alarm Medium: speak out loud to stop the alarm Low: shout to stop the alarm
  6. When you have forgotten to keep A!arm on the foreground, A!arm will still wake you up using push notifications.
  7. Choose on what days you want to REPEAT your alarm
  8. Set how long you want to SNOOZE
  9. View and edit your current alarms in a LIST
  10. 12 or 24 hours CLOCK

Cons

  1. There is limited number of alarm sound to select from…there’s only 1 sound available (for now)
  2. There’s no themes selection
  3. The settings for horizontal orientation seems to be covering half of the clock but maybe it’s my preference to have just the clock exposed at night :x
  4. The built in game don’t make me sleep! LOL I can stay up all night playing games hence a game with “scores” can only make me excited hehe
  5. The “wake up test” don’t sound the alarm again if you answer wrongly or never attempt at all, most likely still sleeping! LOL

Overall, this app is satisfactory as an unique alarm for the iPhone that can be switch off by shouting however the sheep game should be improved on the effectiveness of making me sleep hehe.

Suggestion for the game :D

  1. Add some soothing background music when playing the game
  2. Dim the background light to maybe darker color
  3. Every touch of the button create a soothing wind chime sound
  4. Remove the score and replace it with numbers of sheep found
  5. The game does not end until you fallen asleep, hence if detect no movement or touch for more than 1 minute…dim the light and put device to sleep
