  • For the HARD to get up people

    This is truly the best Alarm clock I have ever used. There are several nights I only get 3 to 4 hours of sleep so when the alarm does go off I would hit the snooze button for that few extra minutes of sleep. Well usually I end up falling back into a deep sleep thus over sleeping. The problem with most alarm clocks was you don’t have to be awake to hit the snooze button. With this app you do have to be awake to answer or complete the tasks. Since I started using this app I now only need one alarm and I do get out of bed right after taking care of the challenges. The Bonus is it has the Carrot personality. Kudos to the Carrot creators.

    This is too buggy to use. The “sensual caress” chore stopped working. That was annoying, but I reported it to the developer so that he could fix it in the next version. The recurring “Wakey, Wakey” alarm went off this morning even though the alarm wasn’t turned on. I tried turning the alarm on and off to get it to shut up. I even tried turning off notifications, which also didn’t work. I finally had to uninstall the program completely to stop it. I will not be reinstalling it.
  • Not reliable

    This is my third night using the alarm. I followed the directions and left it on that screen when I went to bed. I woke up and it said “T minus 23 hours and 30 minutes”. It completely skipped my alarm time. Luckily I set some backup alarms on my phone because I was afraid that after I did the “chores” I’d fall back asleep.

    I liked the Carrot weather app so much, I bought this app. No vulgarity setting? Coming soon? I run on caffeine and curse words. Allergic to Mornings, CP

    The app is awesome and the only thing that would make it better is an update that supports iPhone X and newer. I apologize if you’re already working on this and hope you take a genuine interest in this feedback.
  • Carrot is awesome!

    The sound of the alarm pierces through the room. I wake up in panic. A feeling of dread rises up in me. “Oh no.” I say. “I’ve overslept.” I slowly walk over to see the cause of my terror. My phone flashes and buzzes and as I turn the screen over I see Carrot. No being serious here Carrot is probably the best thing that could happen to me. I have been able to get up on time and be far more productive. I do, however, have some grievances with the app. The ability to use Siri, for one, to turn on Carrot from across the room would be fanatic. Another issue is the fact that Carrot can get a bit repetitive. If there was more variety in the rewards then I would be a bit happier. Another thing that would be nice is if the app could take me to CARROT⁵ (Weather) after I turn off the alarm clock so I can check the weather for the day. My final suggestion would be a follow up alarm. I often find myself going back to my bed, so an alarm that goes off 10-20 minutes later to make sure I stay up would be great. Thanks, Carrot! I wouldn’t be able to do it without you!
  • Paid for it and I still have to unlock features

    I would have rather saved my measly 3 dollars to purchase 1-ply toilet paper as it would be more effective of doing its job than this app. I saw the app and it’s features and thought I would give it a try. I rarely purchase apps at all, if that tells you anything. I’ve tried several other alarm clocks including alarmy, which does get me up, but also everyone else in the house too! I thought I’d give this a try with similar features, no ads and good reviews. So I bought the app to find out waking up is a game, I have to level up to open up all the features. At the very least I was severely disappointed with this game. Having trouble with Circadian rhythm disorder I was hoping an alarm clock app would be that, an alarm with varying features to separate itself from the other. Not a game to where I need to level up to unlock features that should have been part of the app to begin with. There are several free apps which already include these.

    I now have to type several lines of text such as "i love carrot" to turn off the alarm. I just woke up I don't want to stare at the screen and try to type. I email carrot and get a response of "I'll look into making that chore easier in the future". This used to be a fun alarm clock. I'll be looking for a new alarm app.
