"I Won't Let You Fall Asleep"

Reviewed by / Feb 05, 2015

A super helpful alarm clock that will never let you sleep again

THE VERDICT

Puzzle Alarm Clock is one of the most comprehensive alarm apps we've seen, extremely helpful for those who have a hard time waking up. This is the perfect tool for sleepyheads: it actually forces you to wake up, and there are many ways to do it.

THE PROS

The possibilities are endless: you can set the repeat frequency, sound settings, snooze, wake-up helpers and even the app after waking up.

But the most important feature is the Dismiss mode, where you can choose between Normal, QR, Puzzle, NFC, Shake. Select the one that will work best for you and never again fall asleep in the mornings!

THE CONS

Although the idea is amazing and fresh, there have been some problems regarding the alarm going off randomly and problems of compatibility.

However, we hope they can fix all those problems, because the idea is totally worth it.

    I set ONE alarm to go off in the morning to wake me up. Does great and does its job. However, random alarms I did NOT set go off through out the day, all of which obviously need puzzles to turn off. This interferes with every day activities such as work, phone calls and anything else where an alarm and puzzle solving is inappropriate.

    I installed this app for the NFC functionality - that has worked fairly well so far However I have noticed some annoying issues - for one thing, sometimes the alarm will randomly go off when it shouldn't Another annoying thing I've encountered, is when I've already dismissed the alarm, and forgotten to acknowledge the "Are you awake?" notification I've had the alarm go off again, and then I can

    I'm uninstalling this app until it is fixed. It is incompatible with lollipop and 3rd party launchers. The notification screen I believe is the problem. 7 times now I've been unable to enter the dismiss alarm system, the only way to switch off the alarm is to shut down my phone. Obviously doesn't work, as I fall asleep again, and then have no backup alarms.
