Ever since the alarm clock moved from large clocks on our bedside tables not that much has actually changed. For over a decade the vast majority of people just used the alarm on their phone but the latest evolution of that has just landed and it is called Wakie. It is a social alarm clock with over 2 million people already using it and you download it from any of the main app stores. So what is a social alarm clock?
As Wakie co-founder and CEO Hrachik Adjamian says..
"Most people hate alarm clocks, billions of people feel unhappy every day with these classic ringers and ding-congers,"
The fun thing here is that instead of that annoying sound you hear every morning you are getting a friendly person saying hello to you and smiling from another part of the world. Once you get used to it you see that most of the community are super friendly and it encourages you to wake people up yourself and put a smile on their faces. You also don't need to be a genius to see that this is all about meeting new people and ultimately about dating.
It is all a bit of fun though and quite addictive and it uses technology in an entirely new way to put a smile on your face first thing in the morning! Give it a go here.
