Wakie is a free iPhone app which lets you set alarm and get waken up by others via a phone call. The app is very easy to use as all you need to do is to set the alarm and sleep, just like you do with any other alarm app on your iPhone. When the set time arrives, you will receive a voice call from any other Wakie app user to wake you up. All the calls through this app are just 1 minute long and get disconnected automatically after that.
You can also wake up other users who have set alarm, with same voice calling of maximum 1 minute in length. You can also post status updates and comment on the status updates of other users. As per app’s description, Wakie team checks all members after registration and monitors their activities constantly for safety purposes.
Using this iPhone App to Set Alarm and Get Waken Up by Others via Call:
Launch the Wakie app and you will see the home screen. On home screen, you can see that there’s a big horn like icon at the center with a number written in it. This number displays the number of people who are needed to be waken up by you. They are known as Sleepies or Sleepy (if only 1). Tap on it go to next screen and tap on Wake Someone Up.
You will have wait for sometime before you are connected with someone. Tap on Answer to get connected. Remember you have only 1 minute to wake up the other person after which the call gets disconnected automatically. If there’s a voicemail on the other hand, then you can simply tap on End & Report Voicemail to report it.
Note: The app will verify you as the owner of the entered mobile by sending you a 4-digit code via SMS. If you don’t receive it then you can also opt for verification call.
This way you can use the app to wake other users just by a call. Other than this, the app has 4 options: Community, Alarm, Activity, and More.
- Community: You can check the status updates of other app users here. You can also comment on them to have a conversation. If you want to add your own status, then tap on Add Topic. The app supports only plain text in English for writing status.
- Alarm: Use this option to set an alarm at which you want other users to wake you up. The app also supports Backup Alarm for situations when there might be no user to wake you up.
- Activity: Check out all your activities on the app from here.
- More: This option displays your profile page along the number of wakeups, woke up, and total call time. You can also edit the profile from here.

Wakie is a good iPhone app with an unique concept of setting up a social and all time available alarm clock. The app works fine and I liked the app’s concept. Do give it a try if you are bored of same monotonous alarm tones and want a real person to wake you up every time.
