When their Phone is on Silent?

Alarm and Notification Apps

Here are a few good applications you can use to wake someone up over the phone.

1. Galarm App

Give the Galarm app a go for helpful reminders. Galarm allows someone to create group chats, “buddy alarms,” and urgent alerts. Members can configure alarms in their apps or on a web browser.

Galarm also has special alarms that notify multiple people at the same time. This is helpful if a whole group needs to schedule a wake up call.

Install the Snoozle app so they can receive audio messages. If you and other mutual friends also have Snoozle.

You can record yourselves talking and send this person voice memos as a fun alternative to a standard alarm tone.

a. Their friends and family can record messages that are up to 12 seconds long.

b. The messages are also self-deleting, so anyone sending them can get really silly without worrying about the voice memo being played again later!

2. WakieChat App

Use the WakieChat app’s “social alarm clock” feature. This allows a random stranger to give someone a wake up call.

They both have to be in the same region that speaks the same language, and it will hide their numbers from each other.

a. WakieChat’s research suggests that a 1-minute call with a stranger immediately engages a person’s brain, which is very effective for waking this individual up.

b. If this person really hits it off with whoever called them, they can go to the in-app forum and message the individual who woke them up.

3. WakeMe App 

Give the WakeMe app a shot for a fun surprise. WakeMe gives users a chance to record their own alarm tones and send them to strangers to change up their wake up routine.

If someone wakes up within 90 seconds of the new alarm, they chat with whoever sent it.

a. WakeMe also allows users to create profiles. That way, members can learn about each other if they respond to their alarm quickly enough.

b. If the person prefers to be woken up by a stranger of a particular gender, there’s a feature for that.

c. Once an individual adds friends, they can opt to receive alarms only from these members.

Members can create a schedule and review all of their alarms. For example, they can see when they need to wake up for exercise classes and exams.

4. Air Horn App

Try out the Air Horn app. Grab their attention with an exciting sound effect. Install an “Air Horn” app on your phone’s friend.

Choose one of the app’s sound effects as your ringtone when you call.

If you’re able to walk up to them while they’re sleeping, play one of the app’s alerts to surprise them and get them out of bed.

Ask which sound they like the best or think they’re more likely to wake up to—they might prefer a stadium horn or a trumpet effect.

5. Wi-Fi Activated Sunrise Alarm

If they live with you, set up a Wi-Fi activated sunrise alarm.

Use a special app to connect your phone to the alarm. Place a sunrise alarm near this individual—on their nightstand, for example.

Install an app that’s compatible with the sunrise alarm and connect the alarm to your phone. Use the app to select the time this person wants to wake up.

a. Make sure you’re connected to the same Wi-Fi network—if you are, then you can use your phone to configure the settings on this individual’s sunrise alarm clock.

b. Most sunrise alarm apps also allow you to choose different shades of light for this person to wake up to. Check which color they prefer.

c. Sunrise alarms can help defeat grogginess and offer a gentler way to wake up.
