A very useful application that will help us in one of the most important and abrupt phases for the human being. With Alarmy it will surely cost us much less work to get up in the morning to study or work.
How Alarmy works
It is an application focused on waking up the user, whatever the cost. Or at least to keep you from falling asleep after the alarm goes off. For this he proposes different types of activities, surprising the one that will not only activate the brain, but also makes it completely necessary get out of bed to mute the sound. A clever trick especially useful for lazy people.
The idea is simple. Alarmy proposes to the user register a place out-of-bed special that serves as an off button. That is, the bathroom sink, front door of house or any corner away from the comfortable and enticing bed. The record consists of a simple photography. From there, the application identifies the elements of the image to serve as unlock code. After that, you just have to establish the time for the alarm and a good night’s sleep.
The ingenious comes once the alarm goes off, that’s when Alarmy prompts the user to photograph the same scene you previously recorded. If not, the alarm will keep ringing endlessly. Therefore, the user must get out of bed and move to the sink, the entrance door or the chosen place, and take a photo with the same frame that you recorded initially. Alarmy show the original image in translucent mode, helping to create a copy of the new photograph to pay for the alarm. It’s that simple and effective.
In Alarmy you can configure various alarms, useful in case some day of the week you have to get up earlier or later. Also, if this is your case, you can then even see a record history from when you got up in the morning and if it took a long time from when the alarm sounded until you have performed the corresponding task to turn it off.
Nevertheless, the moment you go to program the first alarm you will realize that it is not one of the bunch. For example, in the other common alarm apps you only have to set the time, a type of sound and if you want the mobile to vibrate and little else. But, in Alarmy the thing completely, because you must resort to one of the available options to turn it off in the morning or when you are going to wake up.
Yes indeed, Alarmy it also takes into account the laziest users. Therefore, in addition to this forced wake-up mode, it has others that are somewhat more affordable. On the one hand, there is the possibility of shake the mobile once the alarm has started to sound. Enough to force the sleepy user to move, even in bed. In addition, it also has a third mode called Problem Mathematical. As its name suggests, in this case it proposes the resolution of a simple mathematical problem. Complex enough to force the user to focus, still half asleep, and thus wake up their brain to start it up. Unless you develop a great tolerance for the sound of the alarm, of course.
Rest of utilities that Alarmy presents
In short, an ingenious and useful tool for those who need more than willpower to get out of the cot. You also have a news and weather section to know very early all the news of that time of day and the state of the skies in your area for the next few hours, in addition to knowing your future with the horoscope.

A subscription few are willing to pay
Like any app worth its salt on Android, it has premium services that offer advantages over the free plan. We usually find in these cases that, through a single payment, we can access all these advantages, the amount of which will vary depending on the content offered or that imposed by the developer.
In this case it is not like that, since one of the novelties is that it will not be a single payment, but a subscription. That is why for the service we can only access a monthly fee of just over 4 euros, including a routine free trial to taste the service before paying for it. Among other aspects, it allows us to have greater control over our alarms, such as unlimited access to missions and different tones for alarms. On the other hand, it has more tools for all those who have a too deep sleep. However, for the purpose it has, it doesn’t make much sense to pay for any of these features. This obviously cannot be to the liking of users
