The Most Evil, Yet Effective Alarm Clock Apps

Rise and shine!! Or if you’re not a morning person, snooze and…well, snooze some more.

If you’ve got a difficult time waking up in the morning and keep finding yourself hitting that beautiful, yet unforgiving snooze button, you need these one of these apps. They are, albeit cruel, guaranteed to get you out of bed.

Wake N Shake Alarm Clock

This diabolical app is exactly what it sounds like: You must shake your phone vigorously to get the alarm to shut off.  You can set the shaking intensity anywhere between “hard” and “painful.” It even comes with 24 alarm sounds including “Evil Laugh.” Wake N Shake is relentless, and it owns it. See a more detailed look here.

Sleep If U Can

This obnoxious alarm won’t turn off until you get up and take a photo of your sink, kitchen, or any other place registered by you. Choose somewhere far from your bed to prevent a relapse.

Step Out!

This one’s a little less sinister in design, but definitely gets out you out of bed. This app has a genius step counter feature: Once your alarm starts blaring, all you have to do is get up and walk a certain amount of steps in order to turn it off. Super simple.


If merely walking around is too bland for you, try this alternative. The app won’t stop until you get out of bed and physically spin yourself around a couple of times. You may get dizzy, but hey, you’re awake!

While these may not be as soothing as waking up to the crow of a rooster or the gentle rays of the warm sun, they may be the solution you’re looking for.
