Creative clock interaction
Cuteness is only cute for no long
Timy Alarm Clock for Android is an alarm application with a fuzzy cute style. You can pick a few different creatures with different color schemes to wake up to. When you tap on the creature it makes a noise. You need to tap on the creature to wake up and there's varying difficulties. The application aims to make your waking up experience more interactive and successful.
Timy Alarm Clock is very simple to use. You simply start the application with nothing on the screen but a small icon in the top right. You tap the icon and then you can set an alarm. The alarm has common settings like loudness, the day, and the tone. All of these things are laid out clearly and are easy to change. In some ways, they are easier to change and figure out than my default alarm clock.
While the interface within the application is successful, and it’s funny when you try it, I found myself wondering about how long people would use it. I can see the animals getting a little irritating after awhile (that seems to be their point in some ways with their funny little farting sounds), and the style itself is very kid and perhaps female oriented. It would be perfect for kids to wake up to.
Timy Alarm Clock is a solid alarm application with a different twist on how you interact with an alarm. If you don’t mind the cutesy design, try it out.
