Shame Alarm for iPhone

After about a month of development and testing, I am really excited to launch Shame Alarm in the iTunes store.  It’s an alarm clock that not only wakes you up, but if you fail to turn it off in time it will send a message to your Facebook and Twitter friends telling them you couldn’t get up.  Silly, yes.  A little negative incentive grounded in solid economic theory?  Definitely.  From the app store:

Have trouble getting out of bed? What better way to motivate you than knowledge that if you fail to get up, everyone from your parents to your co workers to your Twitter followers in Indonesia will know that you lack the ability to perform one of the most basic of bodily functions?

Trust us, when this little alarm clock goes off, you’ll move quickly to get to the dresser, because if you don’t, someone will know about it.

Shame Alarm is guaranteed to increase your morning productivity! Simply log in to Facebook and/or Twitter, and you’ll never fail to wake up again!


  • 8 classic wake up ringtones
  • Add vibrate for some extra buzz
  • Set alarm to repeat on select days
  • Dark interface for perfect night time usage
  • Remember, like all third party alarm clock apps, you must leave the app running overnight. Make sure it’s plugged in!

Scientifically Verified

Recent findings in behavioral economics have proved that shame is the most motivating emotion for humans. It is so persuasive, that humans can be shamed into doing almost about anything better. We have found that 9 out of every 10 people are more likely to do something if shamed into doing it–more than would do it for money. Now that’s powerful!
