When was the last time you hit the snooze button on your phone alarm a dozen times and woke up an hour or two later than you planned to? Happens to me all too often.
Sometimes I even tell myself that my phone alarm never went off when meanwhile, I subconsciously turned it off while I was still half asleep. I know I’m not the only one that does this though. Can’t help it—we love to sleep in.
Enough is enough. We set our phone alarms for a reason and that reason is so that we can get up early and have productive days, am I right? Now that we’ve agreed, I’ll show you how to stop oversleeping with this fool-proof wake-up plan using an app called Alarmy. It’s the best alarm app that’s available for both Android and iOS devices.
This is the perfect guide for those who can’t get up in the morning or have trouble waking up. It’ll definitely show you how to wake up on time!
1. Installing the app

Setting your alarm and dismissal method

Set up your alarm time and choose your method for dismissing your alarm. You’ll be given these choices:
- Default – Normal alarm
- Take a picture – Take a picture of a picture you took before to turn off your alarm
- Shake – Shake the phone to turn off the alarm
- Math problems – Do a set number of math questions within a set range of difficulty to turn off the alarm. This how-to is actually a tutorial on how to improve your math skills.
- Barcode/QR-code – scan your previously saved barcode to turn off the alarm
Pick the one that you think will be most effective for you.
I normally set 3 math questions to wake up to and by the time I complete the third question, I’m wide awake. You can even change the difficulty of the questions to match your skill level. The questions range from simple addition questions to intense multiplication questions. Only choose the hardest questions if you want the alarm to ring for the rest of your life, I’m not kidding.
When you’re done setting your alarm. Click the “OK” button and you should see your newly listed alarm on the following page. The alarm is now active!
Now you’re well on your way to never sleeping through alarm clocks again! This is a bullet-proof method because once the alarm rings, even if you tried to turn off your volume, Alarmy will turn it right back up to max volume. The only way to stop the annoying alarm sound is to follow through with your pre-set alarm dismissal method.
I remember pulling out my phone’s battery one time because I couldn’t solve the stupid math questions. At least I was awake by that point.
