Miami, Florida – Tokkao today is pleased to introduce Effective Alarm 1.0 in the App Store, an alarm that will not stop until the user is fully awake. The difference between this alarm and other alarms is that this alarm will engage its users in a set of activities directed towards increasing their awareness in the morning.
When we wake up, our mind is still in a restful state. As soon as we are engaged in active reading and problem solving, even when it is as simple as reading instructions and ordering numbers, our mind becomes fully awake. It is Effective Alarm’s job to make sure the users are engaged long enough in these activities until they are fully awake.
Simplicity is the best form of sophistication. As the Screenshot 1 shows, Effective Alarm features a simple and professional looking user interface. It has the familiarity of the regular iPhone alarm yet it improves on the ability to really wake up its users. The alarm is fully configurable, adding settings to set defaults tunes and E-Mode activity intensity.
The app also allows for the creation and management of multiple alarms. Each one of them with different specification and requirements. Screenshot 2 shows a list of alarms and how the users could set and unset the E-Mode, as well as activate or deactivate the alarms, right from the main screen. Alarms can be set for one time only, or as recurrent events, by selecting the days of the week the users wants to be notified. This can be seen in the youtube video below. Moreover, each alarm can have its specific description so that users can identify each notification.
Although Effective Alarm is an alarm created with heavy-sleeper in mind, the app also supports the creation of regular reminders. “Reminders” are alarms without the E-Mode activated. These reminders will notify the user without the mind activities and can be used as a substitute for the regular iPhone alarm.
