Waking is a pretty difficult task, isn’t it? Gone are the days when alarm clocks could actually wake us up. Today we just hit the snooze button and go back to sleep. But what we don’t see is that alarms are set because of a certain reason and you might miss something if you don’t wake up on time. Smartphone applications have replaced the alarm clocks and today we have for you 5 applications for android that will surely help you wake up.

Walk Me Up! Alarm Clock

Walk me up

This one of the coolest alarm clock applications that we’ve come across and that is why it has made up to the top of the list. It stops ringing only when you have walked a certain number of steps or else it just won’t. If you think you can cheat by shaking the device, you can’t. The application has algorithms to detect if you are actually moving or shaking the device and if you try to cheat, it punishes you by increasing the number of steps due to be walked. You can download it here.

WakeVoice

Wakevoice

WakeVoice as the name suggests is a sort of a personal assistant that helps you wake up. You need to talk back to it after waking up as to what do you want it to do as in shut down or snooze. But after you are done talking, it starts talking back. It gives you some daily information like the weather, news, radio or a customisable message of your choice. So it surely makes your morning easier and you can wake up with a smile on your face as you choose what to hear every morning. You can download it here.
