For many users, getting up in the morning is a painful event. To make this process pleasant, the designers have created smart alarm clocks. Such applications contribute to a better awakening, thanks to a smooth exit from the deep sleep phase.

I Can’t Wake Up

It is a free app with ads. To disable ads, it is needed to upgrade to the PRO version.

The program is aimed at users who do not want to get up in the morning, often turning off and postponing the alarm for a late date. To prevent this, a task or puzzle is launched at the moment of awakening. The right solution will allow you to turn off the alarm, otherwise, the music continues to play on and does not allow you to fall asleep.

In total, the app contains eight tasks with three levels of difficulty. For example, you need to scan a previously entered barcode or solve a mathematical example in your mind. According to the designer’s idea, this will not allow you to fall asleep again after waking up.

I Can’t Wake Up also includes an extensive set of parameters and settings.
