Wakie for iOS wants you to ditch the alarm clock and wake up with strangers

Leah Yamshon | Jan. 16, 2015
There are lots of alarm clock apps out there--alarms with traditional tones, alarms that ditch the sound for a screen brightening approach, alarms that get angry when you try to snooze.

Like I said, most of my interactions with Wakie users were surprisingly tame. I helped someone in Japan practice English, learned that someone in the U.K. was prepping for a job interview, and talked about the Italian countryside. Another dude from the U.K. trolled me a bit, and then of course there was the "sleepy" who got a little fresh when I called to wake him up. (Side note about the app's demographic: All of my chats were with men, and Wakie supposedly randomizes the calls...)

So, if you want to give Wakie a try, it's an interesting little social experiment that can add something different to your morning routine. As for me, I'll stick with my iPhone's stock alarm clock. 

Wakie is available for free in the App Store.
