Description

Tired of oversleeping? If you really want to stop hitting the snooze button, then Kiwake is the best solution for you! This smart alarm is specifically designed to transform you into an early-bird, and it's actually easier than you think. You just didn't have the right tools before. Featured in over 80 countries, including the United States and United Kingdom. Kiwake has been seen in Buzzfeed, AppAdvice, Bustle, BGR, iPhoneHacks and more. So, are you ready to become a morning bird? ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Let’s face it: regular alarms don’t work very well. You just hit the snooze button as many times as you could, then rush for the rest of your morning trying not to be late. What you really need is a coach that will help you build a strong morning routine, and that’s exactly what Kiwake is designed for. Kiwake will drive you out of bed whether you want it or not! Like any good coach, it will give you a hard time if you don’t follow the rules, but also respect you when you actually do. The more you stick to your routine, the less annoying it becomes. HOW IT WORKS ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Kiwake’s mission is to walk you through a brief but complete wake-up process to make sure that you are fully awake. This process can be divided into three main categories you need to wake up every morning: 1. Your Body, by standing up and leaving your bed. 2. Your Brain, by stimulating it and keeping it away from excuses you could find to go back to sleep. 3. Your Motivation, by reading your goals to start your day inspired. Kiwake will request a proof that you went through each of those categories: ■ Body wake-up: take a picture of an object far from your bed to prove you left it. This is an object that you already saved when you have set the alarm. You could take advantage of this by getting close to the shower or immediately starting your coffee maker. ■ Brain wake-up: complete a quick mini-game that requires your full attention. By focusing on the game, your brain will not be able to manipulate you with those famous excuses to go back to bed. You know, the ones like “Meh… a shower will only take me one minute” or “I can prepare and pack my lunch in 30 sec”. ■ Motivation wake-up: read and check all your main goals, because there is no better way to jumpstart your day than giving yourself a motivation boost! FEATURES ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ◦ No snooze button : don't try to find one, there are none and it's better for you. ◦ Cooldown timer : not snoozing doesn't mean you have to instantly jump out of bed. Take some time to stretch first (3 min max) ◦ Intuitive, effective and easy to use interface. ◦ Customizable settings : - add multiple alarms, with the possibility to set specific days of the week. - choose between a variety of mini-games, their length and difficulty. - set the right cooldown time for you. - choose between various ringtones, or even use your own music. ◦ Very precise image recognition : easily knows if you took a picture of the right object. ◦ Sleep sounds: a selection of natural sounds to help you fall asleep. STILL READING ? NOT CONVINCED ? ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ THIS APP WILL SAVE YOU MONEY $$$ ◦ You will have time to make your own coffee instead of buying it on the go because you're late; ◦ You will have time to pack your lunch instead of eating outside; ◦ Along with the other advantages of waking up​ earlier; ◦ You may even get promoted :) *This app works best with iPhone 5 and later models.

    Only had to redownload once over the course of a few years during an upgrade. Annoying but it works well to get me up and out of bed. Maybe I should say annoying BECAUSE it works lol.
  • Great, but days that doesn’t work

    I’ve been putting the alarm correctly and now 2 days in a row this alarm doesn’t wake me up. Very upsetting. Woke up late to work. Thankfully I put my Alexa on for backup this time. Please fix this app as soon as possible since it was a little expensive purchase. I’ve had this app for over a year and stopped using it for that reason. Finally, tried again and still the same issues.
  • Actually gets me out of bed

    That's it. It works
  • When it works it’s awesome. When it doesn’t, you’re late or rude

    Most of the time this app does exactly what it says- forces you out of bed and tricks you into staying out of bed. But every once in a while the bugs and weird quirks of this app totally screw you over. Sometimes the volume doesn’t work and the alarm doesn’t audibly ring. Sometimes it will start ringing at a random time that the alarm wasn’t set for. Sometimes when you close the app it starts frantically beeping at you. It’s the lack of consistency with the bugs that makes it difficult - if it had a few predictable quirks you could work around them, but these issues pop up unexpectedly and then suddenly you’re late to work or completely rude in a meeting because your phone is chirping and you can’t make it stop.
  • Great

    I really want to like this app. The concept actually works - I just wish the app worked better. Below is a list of problems I’ve had with the app: - the alarm never actually activating at the time you set it - the alarm activating silently, so you sleep through it (this happened a LOT) - the alarm not resetting itself, so it just keeps going even after you complete the prompts I’ve had to turn my phone off so many times to get the app to reset itself. Just frustrating. However, I actually still like how the alarm wakes you up. It really does work - I only wish the bugs were fixed.
  • Two Things

    First off, I can’t get the camera to focus any more. Tapping the screen doesn’t do anything. If I’m lucky I can find the sweet spot between being too far away from the barcode and it being too blurry, but it’s very frustrating and takes a long time now. The other thing is just that I tried to send feedback about this, but it’s just giving me an error over and over again. I’ll try again later I suppose. In reference to my past reviews: I think that blaring thing (loud and horrible, on the minute every minute no matter what state the app is in so long as my phone is on) only happens when the alarm I’ve just gone through is the ONLY one I have active. I’ve been keeping at least two on at all times and it hasn’t happened in a good while. Or maybe they’ve fixed it. Idk.
  • Fix this!

    This used to be an awesome app but after it updated last, using the barcode/qr for pictures barely works! 😞
  • I’ve hacked it

    Please fix this app's ability to run in the background. I have to leave the app active on my screen and cannot even lick my phone in order for it to work properly. Last night there was an alert from Apple that came through about an apple watch software update and so kiwake didn't work at all and I overslept. Please fix the reliability of kiwake. I even tried sending this message through the app feedback link but it brought up an error message. Then the developer website link didn't work from the app store. Do you want feedback or not?!
