Comments and Ratings for Wake N Shake Alarm Clock
Pay for half an app (4.04)

This is getting ridiculous. I pay 1.99 for an app. I expect to get a fully featured app. Not limited features that I have to pay .99 to unlock. No multi alarm until you pay for IAP.
Not working as it used to (4.04)

The previous versions of this app used to work better. In the past, you didn't have to keep the app running with the iPhone unlocked, you could just lock the iPhone and it worked. In addition to that, if the iPhone is silenced or the 'Do not disturb' mode is on, it won't wake you up. The last problem I see in this app is that if you enter the multitasking, exit, and open again the app before it sounds again, you are able to quit it and it's useless.
The only alarm for me! (4.04)

I am a heavy sleeper…for real. Multiple alarms would fail to wake me, even. Until this app. If I think I’ll have trouble waking up in the morning (i.e., an especially early wake-up) I’ll crank up the intensity of the shake so it’s more work. I still put on another alarm (an alarm clock) just as a back-up but I’ve hardly used it! It’s been weird to get used to leaving my phone on all night, but so far the app has been great! Beautiful interface and flawless design.
great! but could be better! (4.04)

It’s useful. But I really need the feature that it could use random song in the playlist to wake me up. Otherwise I will hate the first song in the playlist. Please add that feature
Best alarm clock (4.04)

This is the only alarm clock that wakes me up fully

This app does a nice job waking me up, and it doesn't crash. However, if I forget to open the app before I go to sleep, it wakes me with Psychotic Laughing sfx, instead of my nice playlist. Also I wish it chose a random song from the playlist, instead of the same song everyday.
Great!!! But... (4.04)

Overall I love this app and have used it for almost 6 months now, nightly. I haven't been able to tun it off any other way except shaking it (which is great, I can't 'cheat' the system in the morning). However it still has some glitches from time to time. And I have purchased the most difficult shake intensities but personally they still need to be harder. Overall great app.
It's ok (4.04)

It doesn't always go off. I unlock the app and it does nothing. I want there to be a way to change the alert on the lock screen, before I unlock it to shake the phone
Used to be the best (4.04)

Used to be one of the best apps but ever since iOS 7 the app is unstable and frequently stops responding. Hopefully the new bugginess can be fixed but for now I would pass this one by.

The app is fantastic but, lately it's been closing out on me. I use it everyday so it's basically an essential for me now. I hope it gets fixed soon

The Bestest wake-up thingy (4.04)
1/26/2014 4:48:00 AM
4/5 By Appcrazy25
I've used this for about a year now and it's been super great and has got me up everyday without fail. There was that one time it went off during SATs but I guess that's my fault lol. The only thing I would change is that when using a playlist as your alarm, it should choose a random song in the playlist to use instead of using the first one listed. I don't like using the same song for my alarm every night because I makes me start to hate whatever song it is.
The best !!! (4.04)

The old version was much better if anyone had it about a year ago. I can't get the sounds consistent, and I have to update it every night. Also, it's very easy to cancel the alarm when it it's off which defeats the purpose. I couldn't do that with the old version.
Piece of junk! (4.03)

Don't waste your money. There are no instructions. Hitting app help or website takes you to your FB feed. Mine never made any sound - just vibrated - and could turn off by hitting home button. Totally useless waste of money.

I set the "intensity" to the highest setting, and nothing else that I have come across is so effective as this app. I highly recommend Wake n Shake.

Crashes at the shake time.

This app is the only thing that gets me up in the morning. It does eat the battery though so leave it on the charger.
Good alarm app (4.03)

Especially when combined with a sound dock of some kind. Beware the higher levels...it takes A LOT to shake the alarm off in those settings.
Terrible. Sleazy. (4.03)

I already paid what...5 dollars for this app. I do not expect to pay another dollar for every feature I want to use. You threw in some terrible bug so I was forced to delete the app to get it to stop going off and crashing. When I reinstalled, it not only kept crashing but I'm now told that I have to PAY to make multiple alarms. What's next, pay to see the time, pay for every shake intensity, pay to connect to Facebook, pay every day you want to use the app? Currently the app is terrible and is full of bugs. I will not be using this app again until this is fixed.
A sharp stick in the eye (4.03)

On the first attempt, I went to sleep with 75% battery remaining and left the app in the foreground and face down as instructed. I woke up to a fully drained battery. On days 2 and 3, the alarm went off fine, although it was not left running the night before. This morning, it did not go off until exactly 3 hours AFTER the set time and the only way to shut it off was to uninstall the app. Which I did, happily.
Doesn't work (4.03)

When the alarm is suppose to go off the app just crashes..... So it's a pointless app now
It will definitely wake you up (4.03)

I usually set three alarms in a row to (each 15 min apart) and after using Wake N Shake, I no longer need to do that. I would recommend going ahead and spending the extra $1 on the add on intensities though. Believe me, this app will wake the dead.
Pretty dang good (4.03)

Gets me up! I like the app a lot and would give it five stars with some improvements to the interface.

I've had the app for a while and liked it and never had problems. Then it messed up and created an alarm that I couldn't delete so I had to remove the app and redownload it but when I did I could no longer make multiple alarms unless I paid for it.
Unsatisfied and disappointed, it used to be great! (4.03)

This used to be my go app before going to bed and waking up in the morning. Not after the last update. The minimalist, red-dark view of the time when plugged in at night is gone.
Do people do any research before creating or updating their products? White on dark background is too bright and keep our brains awake and our bedrooms lit. All smart phones produces too much blue light. Red spectrum helps cancel some of its brightness. The dim red on black background was perfect as it dim enough but able to read at night. They took it away.
The process of setting alarms and naps is rather complex and requires few clicks and touches. I wish didn't updated but its too late now. Hopefully the will update with customers in mind who want to sleep sound at night and wake up refreshed. :-)
Please stop the evil laugh! (4.03)

I really like this alarm because it is effective and fun enough that I don't get mad at it. However, I do not like that no matter what sound I choose I inevitably get woken up by the evil laugh first. This is just creepy enough to stop using it. I also wish it gave me a whole song list instead of just the first song in each playlist. Please fix the evil laugh.
Fab. Except not really. (4.03)

Mostly this app is fab. Except for the fact that half the time I get woken up by this conspiratorial evil laugh instead of my tried and true Spanish accent guy. It's creepy and not okay. And apparently I'm not the only one...hey app inventor guy. Very funny. Ha ha. Please stop. Also, sometimes it doesn't recognise that I'm shaking the phone and just stays at 0%. This is at like a midpoint intensity. Not cool. Especially when it coincides with the conspiratorial evil laugh. Extra not cool.
So like, great app and stuff. But hey, so, could y'all like, fix the bugs which definitely seem like college boy pranks meant to scare the girls down the hall. Like I said. Ha ha. Very funny. But stahp.

Well yes I know the in app purchases are annoying but remember great alarm with no adds I don't even have a strobe light so I'm fine with that but i do suggest that they make more alarm sounds
