Do you have difficulties waking up in the morning? Do you hate the sound of your alarm clock at 7.00AM? Now there is an app which makes waking up much more fun! The Wakie app is a completely new experience of waking up in the morning. Although the app is currently not fully available in The Netherlands, it might come to this country in the near future. So what’s the Wakie app all about?
The Wakie app allows you to you set an alarm before you go to sleep, just like you normally do. The next morning though, you are not woken up by a terrible alarm sound, but you are woken up by someone calling you for exactly one minute. So let’s say you set your alarm at 7.00AM. than at that time in the morning, another user of the app sees that you want to wake up and calls you through the app. You than have a conversation with a complete stranger for exactly one minute, because after exactly one minute the conversation will be automatically disconnected. Of course you also have the opportunity to wake someone up yourself. You open the app, see who wants to wake up and start the conversation.
I think it’s is a new and fun app, but it is very important that creepy people do not enter the community in order to keep the app running successfully. So it is a must that there is a sort of rating system or so, so that these creepy people are banned from the community. At this point of time, the community of Wakie seems to be very friendly, but keeping this friendly community is difficult when this community is growing and growing. So I think this app is fun and has much potential, so who knows that within a period of time the whole world is using the app so everybody wakes up with a smile!
So what are your thoughts on this app? Any other positive or negative sides? Are you gonna use it when it’s coming to your country? Let me know!
