Can't wake up? Are you turning off your alarm before you're fully awake?
The Tilt Alarm is the perfect alarm clock for anyone that struggles to wake up in the morning. "It's almost like having someone right there to wake you up".
Our goal was to make "snoozing" easier than pulling the battery or force closing the alarm while still making sure the user wakes up. This goal led us to completely re-thinking the concept of snoozing. The current method of snoozing leads to lost time and grogginess in the morning. What we really want in the morning is the music off, and the reassurance that we'll make it out of bed in time.
So how did we accomplish this?
When the alarm rings, the user has to tilt their phone almost perfectly vertical for a set amount of time (Tilt Time). The volume will fade as the phone is tilted and once the Tilt Time has been reached the alarm will end. If the user starts falling back to sleep, their hand will fall causing the Tilt Time to reset and the volume to increase.
We suggest starting with the default Tilt Time of 30 seconds if you're able to get a full nights sleep. If you've been up all night working or studying we suggest a longer tilt time such as 45 or even 60 seconds.

What an app! Great app. Wasn't too happy when it went off during a fap though.

Currently, I am using my kids as my alarm. How? Just using the built in alarm clock on our Android devices. Once the alarm is triggered my 3kids will rush in my room, jump and dance all they can in my bed...the alarm tone is "Gangnam Style" lol. Recently, alarm tone is "Let It Go" from the movie Frozen and you'll hear my daughter singing out loud the song. Anyway...will give it a try, badly need an alarm that will really make me get out of the bed.

It is a very nice idea. I just installed it, I'll see if it works for me.
