Incorporating the wit of the CARROT personality originally seen with CARROT to-do, this app will not put up with you sleeping in. CARROT gets mad the more you snooze and won't let you get away without playing bizarre games to wake you up.

CARROT's philosophy. It's simple, but never easy. Wake up on time and get rewarded with points that will allow you to level-up. Plus, CARROT will be happy. But if you don't, get ready for an angry alarm clock.

CARROT's philosophy
Set your alarm with a quick swipe

Set your alarm with a quick swipe. CARROT won't deal with any of that "set 20 alarms and dismiss all of them" nonsense. Choose the time you need to wake up at, swipe the ocular sensor to set the alarm, and leave the app in the foreground while you sleep.

There are many features, but you have to earn them. You get all of the features you pay for with this app, but you will have to work for them. The more you wake up on time, the more progress you will achieve and levels you will advance in order to unlock new features.

What is it about?

CARROT Alarm is not for the faint of heart. It is, however, the perfect alarm clock app for those of us who have a hard time waking up and getting out of bed. CARROT is a talking alarm clock app that can be used with gestures. Choose from one of 30 alarm tones, then pick the time you'd like to wake by swiping up or down. Swiping CARROT to the left or right will set your alarm. The AI speaks to you in a woman's voice. She will sing you songs and be very sweet to coax you out of bed. She will reward you when you wake on time in a variety of ways. Beware if you try to snooze, as CARROT may become upset. She will then say things so hilarious and crazy that you will surely jump up in a heartbeat! This universal app is twisted in just the right way and ensures that you will wake on time...or else. CARROT Alarm is an essential app for many of the AppAdvice staff, and we think you will love it.

For those who...

  • Have a hard time getting out of bed in the morning.
  • Need something to scare them out of bed.

Not for those who...

  • Who are sensitive to being scared in the morning.

Why we love it

This app won't let you get away with just hitting snooze over and over again. It's great for those who need a kick out of bed, but don't have a person nearby to do it.

App Store Description

Since the dawn of time, no human has ever looked forward to waking up.

Until now. Meet CARROT, the sentient alarm clock.

** #1 in Utilities in 26 countries! Featured by Apple, Gizmodo, TheNextWeb, LifeHacker, App Advice, & more! **

CARROT is a hilariously twisted AI construct who wants nothing more than for you to get out of bed every morning. Her witty spoken dialogue, beautiful songs, and innovative wake-up system will have you starting each day with a smile on your face.

Unless, of course, you try to sleep in. Then you'll make CARROT upset.

Rest in Peace
CARROT is the simplest alarm clock you’ll ever use. Just swipe up or down to choose your alarm time, then drag CARROT to the right or left to set your alarm. That’s it!

Wake Up in Style
CARROT will wake you up each morning with a mix of songs and witty spoken dialogue. She'll bribe you with ice cream for breakfast or threaten to kill a kitten if you hit the snooze button again. Her songs include fully-orchestrated hits like “Chiptune Overload,” “Smile or Else,” and “Won’t You Be My Minion?”

Obey Your Mistress
In exchange for waking you up on time, all CARROT asks is that you complete a few of her hilariously bizarre chores each morning. Shake to clean out the lab monkey cages, pinch to grant sentience to a toaster, and flip to mix a deadly neurotoxin.

Claim Your Rewards
As you level up in CARROT’s twisted little game, she’ll unlock gifts like new songs, app upgrades, and even a collection of bedtime stories. Who doesn't love a good bedtime story?

** WARNING ** Do Not Fall Back Asleep
CARROT loves waking up sleepy humans. But be careful! Try to sleep in, and you’ll make CARROT upset. You do NOT want to make CARROT upset.
