What's New

Meatbags! I come bearing a long-awaited update with lots of fixes and improvements.

- As long as you leave me open in the foreground, you can now lock your screen before bed and my alarm will still sound - even with Silent or Do Not Disturb modes enabled!
- My alarm will no longer get blocked from going off because of a calendar alert or an iOS update.
- I'll actually allow you to turn your flashlight off after you turn it on.
- Meatbags who use me with external speakers or headphones can now set more sensible defaults for my alarm output.
- All the daylight saving bugs my idiot Maker introduced in past versions should finally be squashed. (Famous last words.)

If you’ve been enjoying our special time together, please take a moment to leave me a review in the App Store! I’d be ever so grateful.


App Description

Since the dawn of time, no human has ever looked forward to waking up.

Until now. Meet CARROT, the sentient alarm clock.

** #1 in Utilities in 26 countries! Featured by Apple, Gizmodo, TheNextWeb, LifeHacker, App Advice, & more! **

CARROT is a hilariously twisted AI construct who wants nothing more than for you to get out of bed every morning. Her witty spoken dialogue, beautiful songs, and innovative wake-up system will have you starting each day with a smile on your face.

Unless, of course, you try to sleep in. Then you'll make CARROT upset.

Rest in Peace
CARROT is the simplest alarm clock you’ll ever use. Just swipe up or down to choose your alarm time, then drag CARROT to the right or left to set your alarm. That’s it!

Wake Up in Style
CARROT will wake you up each morning with a mix of songs and witty spoken dialogue. She'll bribe you with ice cream for breakfast or threaten to kill a kitten if you hit the snooze button again. Her songs include fully-orchestrated hits like “Chiptune Overload,” “Smile or Else,” and “Won’t You Be My Minion?”

Obey Your Mistress
In exchange for waking you up on time, all CARROT asks is that you complete a few of her hilariously bizarre chores each morning. Shake to clean out the lab monkey cages, pinch to grant sentience to a toaster, and flip to mix a deadly neurotoxin.

Claim Your Rewards
As you level up in CARROT’s twisted little game, she’ll unlock gifts like new songs, app upgrades, and even a collection of bedtime stories. Who doesn't love a good bedtime story?

** WARNING ** Do Not Fall Back Asleep
CARROT loves waking up sleepy humans. But be careful! Try to sleep in, and you’ll make CARROT upset. You do NOT want to make CARROT upset.
