    Greetings!

    So, I'm looking for a way of easier becoming awake in the morning, that is to help me get out of bed. I've tried a lot of things, and what seems to be working best for me is playing games - it wakes my mind when I start caring. I don't like the frantic alarms, like shaking your phone etc, because I want the waking to be a pleasant experience.

    I've looked around at the games showing up on AppStore when searching 'Game alarm', but these seem pretty dull: math problems and such. Are there any alarms which are fun, more like DoodleJump? Or perhaps I can time a website to launch where a game is activated? How? If I can solve this it would much improve my quality of life - so, please, help! :)

    Appreciate your answer, but FreakyAlarm - You call this a pleasant way to wake up? ;) Also, puzzles and logic games is not my idea of fun.

    Any other tips?

    Unfortunately, all these alarms are based on logic games, eg., puzzles, math etc. I think more intuitive games are funnier (DoodleJump being one example). I'll try the 40 games app, but doubt it will satisfy me.

    Thanks for all the tips!

    I take that back. I just tried morning games and it seems pretty promising. I'll try it tomorrow morning. Probably have to set a few alarms in sequence, though, since they don't seem to last for very long when they go off.

    Thank you!

    Ah, fail. The alarm does not go off when the screen is locked. Any ideas?

    Just get out of bed and splash cold water on your face, or just open Doodle Jump when your alarm goes off and play until you're sufficiently coherent to go about your day. Put all other apps except Doodle Jump on your second home page so when you unlock your phone Doodle Jump is your only option! Problem solved! :cool:

    Can't believe I and millions of others didn't think of that before...
