Get a Good Start

Have you ever woken up late only to find yourself in a panic and basically set off a whole list of negative things that occur in your day? It's amazing that the very start of your day can often determine how the entire day will be. So why not get off to a good start, one that is more relaxed, and more pleasant in general. This app can be used to wake up for work, school, appointments, or to just start your day off at a time you want. The app gives you three very simple ways to turn off the alarm which are shaking it from one side to the other, sliding to unlock your device, or turning your device upside down.

The app has recently had a number of updates, fixes, and enhancements resulting in a much better user experience. There is now a Shakeometer with three different levels of shaking, a battery level indicator, the no sound option, and plenty more. It has 4.5 out of five stars from users who love the ease-of-use and practicality of the app. Wake Alarm Clock is free to use however there is an in-app purchase of $0.99.

Then slide from left to right in order to set it. If you're looking for more advanced functionality, use the alarm center where you can set up an alarm for a certain day, weekdays, or weekends. No matter which way you set the alarm, it’s very smooth.
