Wake Up Every Time with Tilt Alarm

Aside from being Pi Day, yesterday (March 14th) was the official World Sleep Day. Many of us (myself included) observed the holiday quite religiously. We all love to sleep, but the same cannot be said for waking up.

Some of us wake up with merely a feather’s touch, while others require the shot of a cannon or a death metal rooster. If you are in the second group, you should try an application by XDA Senior Member xsirhc6x. His app Tilt Alarm will be your worst nightmare, which is of course cutting your sleep with great precision.

Tilt Alarm, as its name suggests, requires you to keep the phone at a perfectly vertical orientation for a pre-determined amount of time. The music or alarm clock will decrease its loudness and disable after half a minute or so. If you will fall asleep during that period, the music will become loud again. It’s a totally new concept of waking you up, and it’s pretty effective in preventing you from missing work, school, or your appointments. The application is pretty simple and features quite a minimal UI, but it does its job as intended.

If you are ready to fight against your sleepiness, make your way to the application thread to give it a shot.
