"You will wake up, sleepyhead"

Reviewed by / Apr 16, 2012

Morning Routine is an original alarm that requires scanning a barcode to stop it.

Problems with snoozing the alarm and getting late to work? Forget them, this is an original alarm that specially suits sleepyheads. It works this way: tap on "manage alarms" and "add alarm", then you can set title and description to the alarm, set the time, alarm repeat (only once or days), alarm sound, volume and finally alarm type. There are three types of alarm: regular one (like the built-in), scanning alarm (it requires scanning a barcode to stop it) and sequence alarm (set up a sequence of specific codes to scan).

What's more, you can add to your scanning some actions like open a URL which is really useful to start your daily routine reading your favorite blog from your Android device, for instance. The only catch: the alarm sound increases progressively and that's not configurable. This means that if you take too long to scan the specific code, you're going to wake up even your neighbors. This should be fix.

Despite of this the app is set in a good-looking layout and it's really easy to use due to its guided-process of alarm setting.

The alarm is great for sleepyheads. However, those who don't sleep such a tight maybe will find it roundabout. Recommendable to the first ones.

***Update***
We're adding support for the Flic wireless button to Morning Routine! Register a button when setting up the alarm, then turn the alarm off later with a simple press. Keep it on your bedside table for convenience, or put it elsewhere to get out of bed before you turn off the alarm. Check out their campaign here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/flic-the-wireless-smart-button. We'll activate the Flic support in Morning Routine as soon as they start shipping.

We know how tempting "just a few more minutes" can be. That's why we made an app that makes it hard to be a snoozer.

The sweet material inspired design and playful transitions engage and delight, and with the various options to create wakeup sequences you can make a morning routine to get you up and get your day started right.

You can set an alarm to require a barcode scan to turn off, or just the classic press of a button, then add a step for the alarm to open an app or website to ease you into the day with music or news.
If you're feeling more advanced, you can make a sequence, where each step can have its own turn-off requirement which puts the alarm in snooze for as long as you've defined before the next step.
Each step can start an app or webpage if you wish, or for those who go the extra mile with their tech, we have Tasker support, which really opens up what's possible.
Would you like a sequence to turn on the bedroom lights after the first step? Then ten minutes later, when you turn of the next step by scanning that shampoo bottle in your bathroom it starts your coffee brewing*

There are other smart features, like wifi-locking a sequence so you can stay the night away from home even if you didn't bring the barcode you usually scan, and muting the alarm while you're in motion so you don't wake the house on your way to that coffee.
So give it a go and leave those snoozing days behind!

*shampoo bottle and wifi-connected wall socket not included but available from third party companies.

What we use the app permissions for:

"Device & app history"
We use this to show a list of your bookmarks to choose from when you set up post-alarm actions.

"Location"
We use device location to find the nearest available weather info station.

"Photos / Media / Files"
We use this to let you select sound files from your storage to set as custom alarm sound.

"Camera / Microphone"
We use the camera for scanning alarms. We don't use the microphone, the permissions are just bundled.

"Wi-Fi connection information", "full network access" and "view network connections"
We use this for the wifi lock feature.

"Device ID & call information"
To collect information about your device for crashlogs and statistics. NOT PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE. There is unfortunately no permission which allows us to collect the impersonal info that aids us in squashing bugs and improving the app without also acquiring the permission to read the full phone state. To be clear: WE DON'T USE OR COLLECT CALL INFORMATION, but access to it comes bundled with the access we need.

"disable your screen lock"
We use this so you don't have to get past the screen lock before you can turn off the alarm.

"run at startup"
When the device restarts, we need to re-register the alarms.

"pair with Bluetooth devices" and "access Bluetooth settings"
We use this for the Flic integration.

"control vibration"
We use this for vibrating alarms.

"prevent device from sleeping"
Because it would be silly if the app went to sleep while trying to stop you from doing so.

    All I can say is wow, I wish every app in the play store looked this nice and worked this good. But please add standard time instead of military time when setting up the alarm and let us adjust AM and PM manually.

    Setting alarms in AM/PM as an option would make me really happy. Plus it's more consistent with the alarm screen. When you edit it, it goes back to military.
