It’s Hard to Cheat This Pressure-Sensitive Carpet Alarm Clock

It takes a stronger person than me to actually get out of bed when the alarm goes off—after all, that snooze button is so conveniently located. But if the alarm didn’t stop until I was out of bed, there’s a chance I could actually eat breakfast one of these days.

Sleep Cycle alarm updated w/ iPhone 6/Plus support & Health app integration

screen568x568 screen568x568-3 screen568x568-2

Sleep Cycle has updated its smart alarm app for iPhone to take advantage of the larger displays on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus using an adaptive layout to show more content at once.

The updated version of Sleep Cycle also takes advantage of HealthKit for iOS 8 users as the app can now share sleep tracking information with Apple’s Health app. Sleep Cycle says to begin sleep tracking for at least one night before activating sharing between the smart alarm clock and Apple’s Health app.

Sleep Cycle allows iPhone users to capture sleep analysis data by placing the iPhone between the sheets and mattress where you sleep while connected to a power source to measure sleep duration and quality. Previously that data was presented only in the Sleep Cycle app, but the latest update allows iPhone users to also view that data alongside other information available in Apple’s Health app on iOS 8 like step tracking, heart rate, and more.

The app is 99¢ on the App Store and worth trying out for anyone interested in adding sleep tracking data to Apple’s Health app without buying a dedicated fitness band. For more apps that take advantage of Apple’s Health app, check out our running list of supported apps.

CARROT Wakes You Up With Empty Threats…And Some Real Ones

CARROT Wakes You Up With Empty Threats...And Some Real Ones

Getting out of bed is the worst. And anyone who says they don’t mind waking up can just leave now. Some of us are employing desperate measures to get going every morning, and a manipulative/verbally abusive alarm clock sounds like just the thing. The makers of the CARROT To-Do list wanted to bring their motivational snark to a particularly rough time of day and they certainly found it.

Rise: An Alarm You Can Actually Enjoy Waking Up To

The iPhone's stock alarm app is kind of terrible. You have to navigate through multiple screens, flip switches, and spin what feels like an infinite roll of numbers. And that's just to turn it on. Minimalist, simplified apps have started popping up everywhere, so while Rise is no surprise, it's still a relief to ditch Apple's built-in alarm for a version that's stripped-down, intuitive, and lovely to look at.
