"This Beast Will Make Sure You Get Up"

Reviewed by / Feb 26, 2015

If you struggle waking up to an alarm, this app ensures you do and won't stop until you're out of bed.


If you're often late for work because you sleep through your alarm or hit the snooze button just a few too many times, consider switching to I Can't Wake Up! Alarm Clock, the only app that works as hard as you do to get you up in the morning.

It gives you so many options. You can use different alarm clocks, music, or sounds to wake up. You can even have soft music play for 15 minutes before your alarm goes off. You can make it so the alarm starts off soft, then gets loud, or just have it blaring right from the start.

If you need more than just loud noise, consider one of I Can't Wake Up! Alarm Clock's special shut off features. To stop you from just hitting snooze and rolling back over, you can be made to do a math problem, scan the bar code on an item in another room or follow a patterned sequence. By the time you're done with that, you're already awake and ready to get the coffee on.


This will wake you up! It gives you plenty of different options to allow you to wake up the way you want to. It has subtle alarms and blazing alarms, and gives you the ability to customize your alarm anyway needed.


It doesn't have a snooze option.

Developer's original description available here
Advertisements-free version of 'I Can't Wake Up! Alarm clock' application!

Can't wake up?
With this alarm clock you sure will get up on time, thanks to up to eight different Wake Up Tasks which won't let you turn the alarm off until you finish them!
Mind or body stimulation? Or maybe having to actually leave the bed? How about practising foreign language while we are at it?

This application features options that you would expect from alarm clock, like setting multiple alarms, daily repeating or snooze, plus many more, letting you set it up to your liking in almost every way possible:
- Smooth Wake Up – dimmed screen, volume rising, fully customizable
- Snooze Music – choose music that will play during your snooze
- Awake Test – ever woke up just to turn alarm off and go back to sleep? If you fail Awake Test few minutes after finishing alarm, alarm will be started again!
- many music sources – ringtones, music files (.mp3), playlists, shoutcasts or build-in extra loud noises
- starting chosen application after alarm’s finish
- auto turning off during phone calls

Wake Up Tasks:
Math – do some math equations
Memory – find pairs for each coloured tile
Order – set tiles in correct order
Repeat – repeat shown click sequence
Barcode – you have to get out of bed to scan the code placed in bathroom, kitchen or just on your table!
Rewrite – carefully rewrite randomly generated text
Shake – shake your phone until you feel awake
Match – connect word pairs – has build in Capital-Country collection, but you can easily make your own, for example with words in different languages!

You can configure every Task and test it quietly without running the alarm, to set it just the way you like.

Application is available only in english

    I am notorious for over sleeping and shutting down alarm apps while still unconscious. This app and it's tasks & protections are the best remedy for ensuring I keep my job. Well worth $3.00 USD. Keep updating!

    I rarely spend money on the app store, but whatever I paid when I bought this ages ago was worth it. Highly customizable; I have an alarm that startles me awake!

    Excellent features built in to wake you, no other alarm clocks I've come across come close to understanding us deep sleepers and actually creating solutions to help us wake. Brilliant application, I recommend it everyone.

    I forgot what I paid for this, but it is so worth the money. How do you put a price on ACTUALLY getting up in the morning?? This is really cool. Dev: thank you! Can you add a pre-alarm function? (I.e. a soft alarm that goes of at a predetermined amount of time before the set alarm for a short duration)

    The new inability to skip the barcode forces you to get out of bed making this one of the best alarm clocks ever.

    Any alarm with an easy snooze button gets it hit and then I'm late for the rest of the day. Even on "easy", turning off this alarm requires enough mental capacity that I'm awake enough to decide what to do, even if that choice happens to be "go back to sleep" :). Developer is very friendly and responsive. This might be the first app I've bought, and I love it!
