Wakie Alarm – A Stranger Waking You Up

Uploaded on 11 December, 2014

Billed as a “social alarm clock”, the Wakie app connects you with a global network of strangers, who each have one minute to wake you up. The app also adds a dating twist by trying to match you with someone of the opposite gender. With 1.5 million people already using the Russian version of the service, the international update is now vying for a place on our bedside tables.
BBC Click’s Stephen Beckett tried out Wakie for a week, and spoke to the app’s creator, Hrachik Adjamian, about how it has stopped him from hitting the snooze button.
