Great app but has some bugs
It's a great app and the only one I've found to consistently keep me out of bed. However, it does have some bugs. The most annoying one being that the app isn't on-screen when it goes off. So you have to unlock your phone and search through for the icon to the open it. This is annoying because my husband and I work opposite schedules and I have to turn off any alarm clock off quickly lest it wake him up. Another bug occurs in the Motivation section. You have to swipe the "Type a motivation here..." so it can turn off the alarm. The first time I didn't realize this and I had to turn off my phone so the alarm would turn off. It also kept crashing on me when I first set it up. Besides those few things it's a great app and has really helped me.
I love it, but it is currently too unreliable
This app is amazing in its bug-free form, but I have fallen victim too many times to the app not working correctly and letting me sleep through my classes. Instead of sounding the alarm like it normally should, the app sends me hundreds (barely an exaggeration) of messages without making a sound. I’ve given the app privileges to sound even when my phone is on silent or on “Do Not Disturb,” but it will not work unless I have my phone’s volume on, and even when I do it will sometimes still not work. If it doesn’t send me many silent notifications, it will sound the alarm, but shut off immediately when I go to the app (even when I had the app running in the background, which I always do). This is a great app that I have used for years, but the bugs make it pointless for me to use. Once this is fixed I will give it the 5 stars it deserves.
Bugs never fixed
This app is great in theory...and in practice when it works. I have downloaded and deleted this app multiple times after bugs happen. The first few times sometimes it would go off and be impossible to turn off, this time, it sent me 22 silent notifications at the time of my alarm but made no sound, hence not waking me. I got a message from the app saying “something went wrong” (OBVIOUSLY, since I woke over an hour late) and that I should “send an error report” these problems aren’t new and I have to give three stars based on the fact that they STILL haven’t fixed these bugs after years of operating the app
Love this alarm, it literally changed my life. Before using this alarm, I used to snooze for an hour every morning. I used to feel defeated and like I could never get out of bed. I’ve made significant life changes such as getting up at 4 am to go to the gym. I would not be able to do that without this alarm which literally forces me to go to another room to take a picture and complete various steps to turn off the alarm. The only complaint I have is that the ‘no snooze’ challenge feature always crashes and there has been once or twice that my alarm hasn’t gone off. Otherwise, I completely recommend this app!
Amazing idea in theory.
So I think this app is great. It makes you get up... my Issue is that, when I get up I’m just not myself. I will literally delete the app cause I don’t want to get up (in my morning groggy stage) and go back to sleep. Granted I don’t HAVE to get up early but want to.. but the same person that wants to wake up early is NOT the same person that deletes the alarm because you can’t turn it off without getting up.. But I do believe that this app is a brilliant idea.
Perhaps iOS 13.4 broke it
Been using this app for about 1.5 years now and I really liked it. Last night, and today, the app behaved unexpectedly. This morning, the alarm did not ring, rather only showed up in the Notification Center. I set the alarm tonight as a test. The alarm went off, and as I grabbed the phone, a scrolling menu of minutes and seconds greeted me without any context. I just tapped “save” and the alarm shut off. I’ve read the faq page, and followed all suggestions before this occurred and to no avail. Ironically, the feedback link doesn’t work either if you don’t have an Apple email client installed. Hence my feedback here. I like the new look, but form follows function.
This actually works!
This is the first solution I’ve found that gets me to stop snoozing and get out of bed. Using this app has been a game changer — not snoozing that extra 20-30 minutes means I have time to make a healthy breakfast and pack a healthy lunch and snacks to take to work. It makes the rest of the day so much easier because I wasn’t stressed first thing by a self defeating attempt to get a bit more sleep. I’ve been using the app going on three weeks.
I’ve always been a huge snoozer, but this app doesn’t let you do that. I desperately tried to ignore alarm this morning, but the alarm that comes on after you’ve ignored the first one for long enough is like finger nails on a chalkboard. It is painfully irritating and it forced me out of bed. It even seemed to irritate my cat. It won’t keep you from going back to bed after you get up or from laying down somewhere else. It will force you out of bed though.
Stopped working for me
I used this app for months and became a successful morning person, but sadly it has stopped functioning properly. Either the alarm is silent or the only way to shut off the sound is to close the app and you don’t get the cooldown or the rest of the wake up steps. I tried to email support but it bounced back. Makes me think this app may no longer be supported. It’s a shame, the cooldown feature of this app worked great for me and I haven’t seen that anywhere else unless you count a snooze button (which I don’t because I’ll hit a snooze button for hours). I hope this bug gets fixed.
Simply put, it’s broken
It doesn’t work. I used to LOVE this app. I downloaded it again about 6 months ago and realized it was broken. It rings like a normal alarm, and then that’s it. It doesn’t do anything that it says makes it special anymore. I tried again this week but it’s still broken. It rings like a normal alarm and you simply swipe the notification and it turns off... no body, brain, or motivation wake up as advertised. It’s such a shame because it used to be an amazing app but I guess the developer accidentally broke it wit updates and then just stopped paying attention to the app. So disappointed because I loved it. Oh well
No more snoozing! The only thing that gets me up.
This is THE ONLY THING THAT WORKS! The app has been updated and fixed of some of its bugginess. I’ve learned a few tricks to get around the main quirk on my phone: turn off my sound machine app first, then proceed with the kiwake steps. (Otherwise the sound machine gets increasingly louder and sometimes kiwake doesn’t acknowledge you’re up and going through the steps). know I won't sleep-in with this app and I don’t know what I’d do without it!
Download this app!
I recommend this whole-heartedly to anyone that can’t ditch the snooze. As a long time snoozer, this app has gotten me up for two weeks in a row. On the second day it didn’t go off, but I’ve had no issues since. Only request I have is to be able to mute the game sounds. I’m completing them in bed with a still-sleeping body next to me. Thanks!
*if it continued to function as it used to I would (and have) recommend(ed) this app* I used to use Kiwake every morning but for the last few months it doesn’t work at all and makes no sound and does not wake me up. I only wake up to find silent pop up notifications. And when I quit it doesn’t make a sound it just quits. Not sure what changed, but I can’t use the app anymore. I was only going to submit this issue to the company, as opposed to writing a review, but it is glitching so badly that the feedback button is not working. Please update it or let me know if there is a way to fix it on my end. This app actually did help get me out of bed, when it worked.
Need to wake up? You absolutely will.
While the UX is great- nice design, easy to set up... the 2nd and 3rd day I used it, the alarms would not shut off at all. No option to take a photo, no way to turn it off. I had to get up just so I could trouble shoot the issue. I reset the alarm for the 3rd day and hoped for the best, but no luck. Just as buggy. I wish I hadn’t wasted my money. When it works, it’s fabulous and helpful. A great idea, executed in a clever way. When it doesn’t work, it’s just plainly frustrating during the already awful part of my day (waking up!!)
Not as advertised
The reason I bought this app was because I was under the impression that it would run in the background if the app was closed, like the alarm app that comes with iPhone. Keeping it on runs down the battery and when I am away from a charger I find that my phone drains much quicker when the app is open. Also, the alarm shuts off with a single click of a button, where it advertises that it will not turn off until you do the body, mind and motivation portions. Definitely not worth $7.99.
