Snap Me Up – this phone alarm won’t stop until you take a selfie [Freeware]


Do you have trouble waking up in the morning? Alarm clocks don’t work for you? You’re a heavy user of the snooze button and always late for work? If you answered yes to any of these, then you may need to try this new smartphone app.

Snap Me Up is an Android smartphone app which comes with an interesting twist. You set the alarm as usual, but when it finally goes off in the morning (or whenever) you can only turn it off by putting the lights on and taking a selfie.


The idea of course is to force you to wake up, grab your phone, hold it up to your face properly and let the camera grab your bleary mug in full color glory. By which time, hopefully you’re fully awake and ready to go. We’re guessing that really hardcore sleeper cases will just throw the phone against the nearest wall, or rip the battery out, but maybe they’ll just grin and bear it instead. Smile!
