Waking up to the frustrating sound of the alarm is often quite irritating and you would do anything to stop it when it starts ringing. The boring sounds of alarm can be kept at a bay with the new and modern alarm apps that are now available for iPhone users. These apps are targeted towards making waking up, an act of pleasure. However, most of the apps only provide good interface and freedom to choose song, but you need to catch your device to stop it or snooze it. This concept is completely changed by Wave Alarm, a Motion Control Alarm Clock by Augmented Minds. Here, you don’t need to touch the device to stop the alarm. It would stop automatically following your simple gesture.


Wave alarm is one motion detector alarm that can be stopped with a simple waving of your hand. Now, you don’t need to search for the phone in the dark, nor you require finding buttons to snooze or stop it. You will just have to wave your hand and it would understand your signal to stop. However, the background alarm would be continuing. This will make sure that you never miss to wake up on time.  You can control the brightness of the app to make it save battery. You need to keep the app open when you go to bed and it should be running on the foreground of the phone.



  • Wave alarm detects your simple motion and when you wave, it stops.
  • The app uses the front camera of your iDevices, so if you don’t have it in your device, the app will not work.
  • The app runs in the foreground in order to catch your movement. This is because of the multitasking limitation of the app.
  • You can select the songs are music that are already stored in your device as your alarm sound. Now you can wake up to your favorite music.
  • The alarm interface is modern and has a great look.
  • You can change the brightness of the app.
  • The app catches your waving movement quite promptly, so even without getting out of the bed, you can stop the alarm.
  • There is a background alarm provided with the app. So, even if, you wave away the alarm playing on the foreground you will never miss the alarm under any circumstances.
  • The app is compatible with all iDevices with iOS 5.0 or later.
  • The version 2.1 of the app requires 18.5 MB space and it does not require any internet connection.
  • The new version has bug fixed to make it run more smoothly than ever.


Summary: Wave alarm detects motion of waving hands to stop the alarm clock running on the foreground of the device and it has several intrinsic features to make it worthy.
