    as much as i want to give this a 5 star rating, i can’t bring myself to do it. i love the idea of the carrot apps, and i love the to do list app, however the alarm clock app just doesn’t make the cut. for it to wake you up, you have to keep the app running, turn on the ringer, and turn off do not disturb. this is a problem for me, because i will be woken up throughout the night by other apps (which i can’t turn off notifications for as they’re kinda important). my solution to this was keeping the volume low, however then i couldn't hear the alarm go off. if it would vibrate as well, then it would be great, because the surface i have to keep my phone on when charging causes the vibration of my phone to be extremely loud, but alas- it doesn’t seem to vibrate. the other issue i have with this app is that over half the time the alarm will not go off, even though i have the ringer on, the app open, and do not disturb is off. also, i’d appreciate if the app wouldn’t turn the volume unnecessarily high when you do the wake up tasks, as i wake up before others in my house, and i have received complaints about how loud it is. i have turned the app’s volume adjusting feature to 25%, however it doesn’t seem to actually make it lower. overall, when it works properly, the app is good, but there are rooms for improvement.
  • Awesome alarm App!!

    I just woke up with this app for the first time this morning. As far as my phone goes, it worked as expected. But there is a disconnect between the phone and the watch. At the alarm time my watch vibrates. There is no option to snooze on the watch (there should be) all you can do is dismiss it, in which case it just re-fires the notification immediately. So I pick up my phone and tell it to snooze. Then before the snooze period is expired, I pick up the phone and successfully go through the process (chores) of proving that I’m up. But.. minutes later, (at about the time the alarm would have sounded again) my watch starts going nuts again. Dismiss and it just keeps re-notifying and vibrating at me.
  • Great app

    I absolutely love this app, I can’t wake up without it but could the app developers please update it to work with the iPhone X.
  • Fix the foreground lock limitation and it’s golden.

    I’m sorry, Carrot. I’m just too unreliable and stupid to remember to leave it open in the foreground. Most of the time I fall asleep amusing myself with some match-3 game or watching other meatbags sterilize themselves while trying to do stupid stunts or just staring at the pretty lights on the screen and wishing I knew how magnets worked. Please don’t kill me.
  • Cool idea, shoddy outcome.

    I gave this 2 stars because honestly I love the CARROT weather app. The alarm clock.... Not so much. The limited functionality is my biggest reason for not liking it. Though I’m sure it gets better with future unlocks. The degree in which I can customize my original Apple alarm app for a variable schedule make it way more useful to me. Things like unlocking normal app features such as menu access and fine tuning wake-ups could also probably be re-evaluated. Save your money and use a different alarm clock.

    The app worked the first time great! It's a wonderful idea. Though.. the second day it didn't work... Or the next... Or the next. I did all the directions like turning on my ringer and leaving CARROT on, but nothing is working. I would LOVE this app, if it worked.
  • I love Carrot, but...

    The app is suppose to work while running in the background. It does not. I must leave the phone open to the app for the alarm to sound. Normally, this isn’t a big deal unless I need to use the white noise app to get to sleep in the first place! While running in the background, Carrot sends me all kinds of progressively more and more irate text notifications about waking up. Somehow, this just doesn’t do it for me.
