Puzzle Alarm Clock, as its name suggests, is an alarm clock that uses jigsaw puzzles and challenges to make you have to wake up for real and not just turn off the alarm. You can choose the method that you want the application to use to ensure that you'll wake up, be it one or more puzzles, NFC tags (if your phone or tablet has this technology), QR codes and much more. It is possible, inclusive, use more than one method in conjunction, to be sure that you will even wake up. Puzzle Alarm Clock is an alarm clock for those who can not wake up early and always ends up wasting time. He has a system of puzzles and challenges that makes it necessary to think, do math, get out of bed and much more, ensuring you will not stay asleep.
This alarm is really useful and works as promised, it has all the features presented and can combine multiple challenges (for example, you can place up to five puzzles in a row to be revealed), making it almost impossible to go back to sleep after all you need to do to stop the alarm.
The puzzles in the free version are pretty easy, but you can unlock the full alarm for $2.14 to increase the difficulty of the puzzles. The notification feature is great for those not wanting to turn off the alarm and go back to sleep, since it ensures that you are awake and not waste time by accident. The possibility to activate an application after the alarm is turned off is also great, as it allows to organize a daily routine to wake up. The only problem is that it does not allow you to indicate a playlist or folder to be used as sound, it is necessary to use every day to the same music, something that could end up making you dizzy it quickly.
The Puzzle Alarm Clock is perfect for anyone who wakes up and then goes to sleep again. He sends to your phone, after five minutes you could turn off the alarm, notification. If you do not open and mark the notification as read in another five minutes, he comes back to shoot with puzzles or other challenges.
You can specify an application to be opened after the alarm goes off - if you like to see the weather forecast in the morning, for example, is a good option - and you can even use Facebook to help wake up: if you lose notification of the alarm, press the snooze button or turn off the sound and it will publish in your wall and your friends can suggest.
