The Walk Up! clock app uses a phone’s accelerometer to make sure users wake up.
The Walk Up! alarm clock app forces users to get out of bed to turn it off. Using the iPhone’s built-in accelerometer, it counts the number of steps needed to stop the alarm, which you can set as anything up to 100 steps depending on your need.
The $0.99 iOS app adds to the experience by offering a screaming male or female voice. There are built-in panic boosts for alarm intensity, animated skins, a doomsday countdown customized to each theme, an optional evil mode that doesn’t allow snoozing, and an easy to follow step-by-step tutorial.
The app also cautions users that cheating will not be tolerated and multiple anti-cheat safeguards are in place. You can check out the Walk Up! alarm clock in the video below:
