Wakie is an App that makes waking up a fun game. There's that alarm clock Apps that wake you up but this App encourages random strangers around the world to wake you up with a phone call. For now, Wakie is open to those in the US, Canada, UK, Singapore and Hong Kong.
It works both ways, if you are a sleepy bugger, you get woken up and if you are a insomniac, you did play the Wakie guy/gal. To use Wakie, you are to sign in using your phone number. Wakie promises that your number will remain ‘safe and anonymous’.
Wakie’s crowdsources most of its work to its community, which consists of Wakies (callers) and Sleepyheads. If you want an alarm call, you just set an alarm time through the App, and when the wake-up time arrives, you’ll be connected to a Wakie of a similar age and the opposite gender who is sure to wake you up from any deep slumber. Calls last for one minute, with phone numbers never shared.
If you’re a insomniac or have gotten up early, you can take your part as Wakie. The dashboard of your Wakie App lets you see how many Sleepyheads are scheduled to be awakened and offer to help by hitting the ‘Wake Someone Up’ button. When the call ends, Sleepyheads are invited to rate the Wakie.
