20 Unconventional Alarm Clock Apps

From Matchmaking Alarm Apps to Dream Recorder Apps

— November 10, 2015 — Tech
No matter what your ideal wake up is, there's an alarm clock app that can help raise anyone from slumber in the most creative, kooky or practical way possible.

Some alarm clock apps stray more to the side of novelty. For example, the Morning Glory Alarm provides the user with a provocative picture to wake up to each morning. There's also a Snapchat user who sends a hilarious picture of himself waking up to all of his followers, and will allow anyone to follow him, providing a lighthearted alarm clock service to the world of social media.

Other alarm clock apps are more practical, like the Google Now application that wakes users up when they reach their subway stop, or the Snorelax app, which analyzes traffic patterns to wake users with exactly enough time to get to work.
