Waking up, like breaking up, is hard to do. But it can be a lot easier with the right alarm app. If you’re still relying upon an old alarm clock, the alarm app that came with your phone or no alarm at all, it’s time to get with it. Starting your dar off right — including starting it on time — is the first step to having an awesome day. Because it’s so important, an entire ecosystem of alarm apps has sprung up vying to be your goto wakeup buddy. There are a lot of really good alarm apps to choose from and I’ve rounded up ten of the best to help you out.
