Timy alarm clock
Another great alarm app for those who have trouble getting out of bed is Timy Alarm Clock. It is quite colorful, with animated characters that star in mini-games that you must complete to turn off the alarm.

You can use Glimmer to transform your mobile into an alarm clock with the night mode And if the progressive increase in brightness doesn't wake you up, an alarm tone is played at high volume as a last resort.
