There’s an App for That: Waking Up Like The Rock

We have all heard the saying “there’s an app for that”, indicating that yes, your phone can do almost anything for you. This is one of the things that I love most about technology: innovation and simplification. Welcome to a new series here at Morning Coffee Tech where we find the funny, interesting, awesome, and bizarre things that app developers are enabling our phones to do.

Have you ever wanted to wake up like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson does? Of course you have! Well, there’s an app for that! This is The Rock Clock, an alarm app that will utilize the charismatic presence of The Rock to motivate you for the day ahead.

The app interface looks similar to any other alarm app with a black and yellow themed decoration. One pre-installed alarm-“Rock Time”-is set for 6:00 A.M. and is supposedly when The Rock wakes up–I guess he’s a morning person.

Setting an alarm is simple; you choose a time to wake up and one of the 25 custom tones to wake up to. These tones range from The Rock himself repeatedly saying “Beep, Beep, Beep…” to singing, to playing guitar, to revving a motorcycle, and many more. What better way to prepare for the day?!

There is no snooze button included with the app because “The Rock is not a fan of that button”.

You can also create “projects” with end dates, which the app will remind you of each morning when you wake up, along with a daily inspirational quote from The Rock.

Finally there is “sleep mode” which is a dark themed, ticking clock. Having sleep mode on will allow your device’s screen to dim, but not completely power off.
