Kiwake ensures that you will get out of bed in the morning thanks to its three step wakeup process. Start off by creating your alarms for the week. You can create multiple alarms if necessary and have them repeat as often as you like. Kiwake then requires you to pick an object that’s away from your bed and take a picture of it, choose from a handful of mini-games, and create some goals for the day or add a motivational message. When the alarm sounds, you’ll have to return to that object and snap a picture, successfully complete all of the mini-games, and read your goals or message before you can disable it.
