Kiwake Alarm Clock iOS App Details

Tired of oversleeping? If you really want to stop hitting the snooze button, then Kiwake is the best solution for you! This smart alarm is specifically designed to transform you into an early-bird, and it's actually easier than you think. You just didn't have the right tools before. Featured in over 80 countries, including the United States and United Kingdom. Kiwake has been seen in Buzzfeed, AppAdvice, Bustle, BGR, iPhoneHacks and more. So, are you ready to become a morning bird? ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Let’s face it: regular alarms don’t work very well. You just hit the snooze button as many times as you could, then rush for the rest of your morning trying not to be late. What you really need is a coach that will help you build a strong morning routine, and that’s exactly what Kiwake is designed for. Kiwake will drive you out of bed whether you want it or not! Like any good coach, it will give you a hard time if you don’t follow the rules, but also respect you when you actually do. The more you stick to your routine, the less annoying it becomes. HOW IT WORKS ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Kiwake’s mission is to walk you through a brief but complete wake-up process to make sure that you are fully awake. This process can be divided into three main categories you need to wake up every morning: 1. Your Body, by standing up and leaving your bed. 2. Your Brain, by stimulating it and keeping it away from excuses you could find to go back to sleep. 3. Your Motivation, by reading your goals to start your day inspired. Kiwake will request a proof that you went through each of those categories: ■ Body wake-up: take a picture of an object far from your bed to prove you left it. This is an object that you already saved when you have set the alarm. You could take advantage of this by getting close to the shower or immediately starting your coffee maker. ■ Brain wake-up: complete a quick mini-game that requires your full attention. By focusing on the game, your brain will not be able to manipulate you with those famous excuses to go back to bed. You know, the ones like “Meh… a shower will only take me one minute” or “I can prepare and pack my lunch in 30 sec”. ■ Motivation wake-up: read and check all your main goals, because there is no better way to jumpstart your day than giving yourself a motivation boost! FEATURES ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ◦ No snooze button : don't try to find one, there are none and it's better for you. ◦ Cooldown timer : not snoozing doesn't mean you have to instantly jump out of bed. Take some time to stretch first (3 min max) ◦ Intuitive, effective and easy to use interface. ◦ Customizable settings : - add multiple alarms, with the possibility to set specific days of the week. - choose between a variety of mini-games, their length and difficulty. - set the right cooldown time for you. - choose between various ringtones, or even use your own music. ◦ Very precise image recognition : easily knows if you took a picture of the right object. ◦ Sleep sounds: a selection of natural sounds to help you fall asleep. STILL READING ? NOT CONVINCED ? ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ THIS APP WILL SAVE YOU MONEY $$$ ◦ You will have time to make your own coffee instead of buying it on the go because you're late; ◦ You will have time to pack your lunch instead of eating outside; ◦ Along with the other advantages of waking up​ earlier; ◦ You may even get promoted :) *This app works best with iPhone 5 and later models.

  • Gets me out of bed

    By noname1275
    Kiwake actually makes me get up, and I have to seriously think about it if I plan on going to bed after completing this alarm. I’ve only went back to my bed one time while using this alarm; that day my body truly just needed some more sleep. Every other day I’ve been up with the alarm! I don’t always want to be; sometimes I feel groggy and lay there awhile, but the alarm is eventually annoying enough to get me up. And don’t try just turning off your phone; it’ll start beeping super loud! This app is pretty much foolproof for anyone willing to stay up after they get up! P.S. the mini game really helps to get your brain going.
  • Buggy

    By AimlessAM
    This app is great in theory, and when it works it really works, but it’s buggy. Sometimes it’ll freeze when I’m doing the tasks and just start going off wildly and I can’t make it stop without deleting it from my phone. Sometimes it doesn’t go off at all. Sometimes it can’t find my picture and I can’t turn it off without deleting it. Frustrating.
  • Unpredictable

    By Robert0286
    Lately, the alarm has been hit or miss. Most days the alarm goes off without an issue. But three days a week the alarm doesn’t sound but instead just makes my iPhone “buzz” (no sound). The hit or miss is frustrating and I set the alarm up the exact same each night before bed.
  • Great for if you need to wake up.

    By yraliH
    It’s great to help you wake up without hitting snooze. However, it is 90% impossible to get the app to shut up if you forget to turn one off and you go somewhere before the alarm. I woke up well before my alarm and went to the gym, where my photo item clearly isn’t there. Turning my phone off didn’t work, and I wasted two skips on the photo taking step trying to get it to stop. Not to mention the insanely loud beeping that happens when I tried to turn the app off. This is all after having to cut my workout considerably short to out outside as to not annoy everyone else. This app needs a way to prove you are awake and not at home so the app will shut up more easily. If this ever happens again, I am deleting the app and encouraging everyone I know that uses it to do the same.
  • Get Alarmy Instead

    By mikesingletary
    Just as with a majority of these recent reviews, the app only works sporadically for me. Some mornings, the alarm will not go off, and sometimes after about five minutes past the scheduled time, the panic alarm will go off (the one that goes off if you try to force quit the app to turn the alarm off instead of following the steps). Super annoying. So I either don't wake up or wake up a few minutes late to there most annoying sound ever. This last update was over three months ago, their last Twitter activity was a year ago, and support seems to be unresponsive. I think this app has been abandoned. Thankfully there's Alarmy.
  • It stopped working :(

    By I love pinning
    I used to love this app but for the past few weeks it won’t go off in the morning. It light up on my phone but doesn’t vibrate or play. Lighting up is pointless behemoth you are sleep. I have set up a backup alarm for 15 min later but I snooze it because I am the queen of snooze. The whole reason I got the app and used it daily for over a year is because it helped me get out of bed without snoozing. It helped me start my day off so much better. I really want it to work again, consistently.
  • Used to work

    By thenorthernscar
    I missed class today because it decided it wasn’t going to work. The last thing I did before I went to sleep was make sure it was on, and I woke up to about 100 notifications of it going off in the background. Literally. New update doesn’t work and the developers don’t care. Lots of similar reviews and emails and they don’t seem to care. Customer support page says the server is down.
  • Amazing

    By 1357908642xyz
    I love this app! I only use the game portion and that is plenty to get me up in the morning. Today I noticed that you can silence the game while you are playing it, which is great so my boyfriend does not have to listen to “bings and clicks” (before the sound would gradually increase even as you were actively playing a game, which was very annoying). I love how customizable it is- game type, difficulty level, and # of rounds.
  • A much better wake up process!!

    By Kare4animalz
    In the morning I would snooze and snooze my alarm or just completely shut it off to make the noise stop and then be late to where I needed to go! Kiwake is great because it really doesn't let you snooze and it makes sure you're awake before you can turn the alarm off so going back to bed after the alarm shuts off is a lot less likely than when you press snooze on a standard alarm. It has you play a short game to wake you up and has you take a picture of something in your house that you have to get up and go take another picture of before the alarm will completely shut off. (It doesn't ring constantly though, it will stop to give you enough time to play the game or find the object but will start ringing again if there is no activity -aka you're sleeping.) My favorite object to take a picture of is my coffee pot! As with other alarm apps I have tried, usually if they're being annoying and I don't want to wake up I can just kill the app but Kiwake doesn't let you do this very easily, it will make the worst noises if you try to do this. All in all my wake up routine has become much less of a struggle now that I use Kiwake as my alarm. Update: there was a glitch with this app a few months ago but it seems to be working great again!! Yay for fixing glitches and waking up on time again.
  • What everyone else says is true: it’s unreliable

    By lrnj
    This app used to be the only thing that got me up in the morning. Since the last update it never works. I’ve tried everything and it just doesn’t work anymore and I’m so, so sad about it.
