Carrot is a crazy and hilarious AI that wants nothing more than to help you get out of bed in the morning with a smile on your face. To get her up and running, simply swipe up or down to choose a time and then drag her to the right to activate your alarm. When it’s time to wake up in the morning, you’ll hear a mix of songs and witty spoken dialogue. In order to get Carrot off your back, you’ll have to perform a few goofy chores like shaking your iDevice to clean out cages and flipping it over to mix a deadly neurotoxin. Fail to do so and Carrot will get really angry, and you don’t want to see her when she’s angry. The app also includes hundreds of rewards to earn, iCloud support, 30 alarm tones, and Carrot To-Do integration. CARROT Alarm is available for free today only (08/11).
