Comments and Ratings for Wake N Shake Alarm Clock
Great app but pay VERY careful attention to directions (4.56)

I initially wrote a 1 star review for this app because I couldn't get it to work properly. I thought I set it correctly the first night but my phone was still on silent, so nothing happened. Second night I made sure the volume was up but I only received push notifications instead of the alarm going off, so I overslept by 2 hours. The third night I set other alarms and decided to give this one last chance as a backup and I'm very glad I did! The key to using the app is that you have to have it up on your screen, then you can put the phone in sleep mode (hit the power button). The alarm went off on time, vibrating, strobe light on and music up just like I was hoping for. I would have given it a higher rating but I basically had to figure this out on my own - there's a quick instruction screen when you first use the app but once you hit ok you can't access it again. I couldn't find any troubleshooting or faq info on the developer's website either. It has a ton of potential but they have got to give better instructions!

This is the app I've been looking for! I've used it for a week now and it's worked flawlessly. It's a great happy medium between regular alarms (actually, even those "smart" alarm clock apps didn't work for me) where you can hit the snooze button and those other crazy alarms that require taking pictures of things to turn it off. The alarm goes off (I use the Drill Seargant sound), I shake the thing and I'm up. The "nap" feature is awesome too...if I want to just close my eyes for 20 mins, I don't have to setup a whole new alarm.
Not anymore (4.56)

I got this app 3 years ago and it's worked ever since but lately it hasn't been waking me up and I tested it out to find out it turns the ringer and audio low so I can barely hear it
Great potential, if the alarm actually went off (4.56)

Like the idea, if the app functioned as stated. The App says to have it in the foreground and open to work. I did just that and the alarm sent a tiny push notification, not the full alarm. Didn't wake up on time because of this.
Also the interface was confusing and did not follow common conventions.
The only way (4.56)

It's the only way to really wake up, whether you're ready or not.

Works well enough I wake up some but having a shake "rounds" option would do the trick. Having to reach 100% multiple times to shut it off.
Works! I haven't snoozed in 2 weeks (4.56)

This is an ingenious alarm clock app. You can't snooze and you have to complete the task before the alarm will turn off. When you're done you are awake and ready to kick butt!
Most apps are all promise with very mediocre delivery, but this one delivers!

I used to love this app, now it instantly crashes every time the alarm goes off. Sadly this makes the app unusable. Too bad, buyer beware for now!!

Kind of defeats the purpose if the app crashes right when the alarm goes off.
Timing Bug (4.55)

I enjoy the app but have encountered an issue. Say I set the alarm at 10 pm and want to wake up at 7 am. The alarm will set for 7 am in x hours + 24 hours. Unless I set my alarm after midnight, it won't go off in the morning hour I set it for.

Besides the bugs, having to be rudely awakened made me start the day in a bad mood. While I was technically awake, I still felt groggy and confused. I like the Fred O'clock App better. It wakes up your brain by making you play a fun game, after that it's impossible to go back to sleep. There's no snooze button on that either, but it's not as rude of an awakening.
Crashing and going off at wrong times (4.55)

I'm experiencing the same problems as the others have listed here. It crashes, and then goes off when the app is opened, both after crashing and at night when I'm setting it.
This used to work much better.

The app crashes as soon as the alarm goes off (iOS 9.2.1)
Used to be my go-to "I can't screw this up" app.
I've deleted the app and I hate deleting apps I've paid for, but if wait till the develops has things sorted out before you buy
Amazing app but huge bug (4.55)

Used to love this app till the recent update. it just doesn't seem to work anymore. it goes off but crashes right away when you're about to shake. so then the app becomes completely pointless

Just bought this app and crashes all the time. Can't depend on an alarm that crashes right before it's supposed to go off. Until they don't fix it it's a waste of money and time.

Just downloaded with high hopes. I haven't been able to get it to work because of crashes. It goes off for two seconds and then as soon as i pick up the phone it crashes. Do not buy.

The app now crashes upon the alarm going off, rendering it entirely useless.

This app has a great concept, but it constantly crashes. It crashes just after your first time loading it. When it does work, it's great. I just wish it worked 100% of the time.
BROKEN. Not as good as the original. (0)

Tried opening this the other day and it still hasn't been fixed. The disappointment with this app and its developer continues. Looks like he cashed out or just simply stopped caring. Either way, the app is still so broken. You can hardly activate alarms as the screen blacks out. The alarms shut off immediately too because they black out.
This used to be such a useful and well designed app in the beginning. Now it doesn't even work
Well I have transitioned to other alarm/wake up apps because of my history of disappointment with this app, but recently I noticed this latest version is quite bad. It crashes upon opening up sometimes. But when the alarm actually goes off, holy cow it just instantly crashes. You can't even shake it, because the app doesn't stay open long enough to read the motion. Don't know what to say. This app used to be so great when it started out.
A shadow of its former self. New buyers beware. The developer is a greedy swindler. Beware.
Below is my previous review.
"Horrible UI, broken and incoherent design. Somehow the greedy developers allowed their ambitions to RUIN, and I mean literally ruin, a perfectly functional and perfectly designed app.

I luckily tested it before I actually used it, and the alarm will go off for a split second and then the app will crash. Not impressed. Very disappointed.

I've been using this app for years without complaint but it doesn't work with iOS 9. It literally crashes half a second after the alarm starts which defeats the purpose of using the app. Don't download or use until it gets an update.

I used to love this app. It was the only alarm clock that could get me up and keep me up. But after this latest update, it keeps crashing when the alarm goes off. It only goes off for about 1/2 of a second, then crashes. I hope this gets fixed, and I will change my review.

Great alarm app, wish I didn't have to leave screen on but it can't be helped (stupid apple)
Only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because every night I start the app the alarm goes off. Incredibly annoying when I'm tired and falling asleep and I get blinded by the flash and wake up my roommate with the music at 11pm...
I'm back! (0)

I've been away from this app for several months, and now i see they have fixed the fade-in option, so i'm back to give it another try.
You'll stay at 3* for now, and i will try to update in a few days.
