Rise and Shine: Best alarm clock apps for Android users to wake up refreshed

Waking up early in the morning can be a challenge, but the right alarm clock can make all the difference. Sometimes the clock app built into your phone isn’t enough. If so, and you’re an Android user, you’re in luck: there’s a plethora of alarm clock apps available on the Google Play Store, and some of them offer really unique features. In this article, we’ve rounded up the best alarm clock apps for Android so you can wake up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day ahead.


If you often unknowingly turn off your alarm clock, fall asleep again and miss important things as a result, Alarmy will come in handy. It makes the task of turning off your alarm a lot more difficult, so that you’re fully awake and aware by the time you’re finally able to turn it off. For example, Math Mission forces you to solve a math problem as soon as you wake up. There is also a photo mission that forces you to wake up and take a picture of the registered place to turn off the alarm.

AlarmMon is a fun and unique take on alarm clocks. It gets you into a game when you open your eyes, giving you that early morning kick. When you open it for the first time, it will ask you what kind of sleeper you are – light, moderate or heavy – and suggest games accordingly. Selecting that you are a heavy sleeper and want to do some physical activity upon waking up will give you a game called Zombie Lengtoo where you have to tap to break a glass window and save a cute animal from a zombie attack. The alarm will sound until you exit the game. There are many more games like this to choose from.

Sleep like Android

Sleep as Android is one of the most popular sleep tracking apps on Android – and it doubles as an alarm clock app. The app’s description calls it “a Swiss knife for your sleep,” and when you look at the list of features, it certainly seems that way. Aside from extensive sleep tracking features that don’t even require a smartwatch, the app uses AI-powered sound detection to try to fix your snoring and record sleep talk. Unlike Alarmy, which forces you out of bed, Sleep as Android tries to do the same thing gently, which can be useful for people with anxiety issues. The app also integrates with Google Fit, Samsung Health, Android Wear, and Spotify.

This app also goes the extra mile to wake you up on time with its eight different wake up tasks that won’t let you turn off the alarm until you complete them. These are as follows:

Math: Do some math equations
Memory: find pairs for each colored tile
Sequence: Place tiles in the correct order
Repeat: Repeat the displayed click sequence
Barcode: you have to get out of bed to scan the code that is in the bathroom, kitchen or just on your table
Rewrite: Carefully rewrite randomly generated text
Shake: Shake your phone until you feel awake
Match: Connect word pairs


Mornify is an alarm clock app that aims to wake you up with music based on the mood or the activity you want to wake up to. You can search for artists, genres, moods and curated playlists, or use the music stored on your phone to get the most out of your alarms.
