Walk Me Up Wants to Wake You Up by Making it Really Hard to Turn Off its Alarm

Walk Me Up Wants to Wake You Up by Making it Really Hard to Turn Off its Alarm

Jul 8, 2014

There’s plenty of alarm apps that try to make waking up less of a pain than it currently is. Walk Me Up decides that the way of making snoozers get up is to make them walk around with their phone for a certain number of steps before the alarm will be disabled. Clever trick. It’s possible to set it so that lots of steps are required, shaking the phone will reset the timer, and for there to be no snooze button. Brutal.

Of course, this requires to a certain degree figuring out the right settings such that doing something like just moving your phone back and forth while still in bed is more of a hassle than just getting up and walking around with your phone. Or, making sure to put your phone a decent distance away. And making sure to not overdo it: 50 steps is way too many for a small apartment.

No matter what, it’s an interesting app worth trying for those who have trouble waking up. Get it for free from Google Play.
