Wake alarm clock


This app will change your mornings forever. Available on the App Store for iOS devices, this app changes the way you control waking up. Everyone loves this app. Heavy sleepers can delay waking up by slapping their phone. Those who want to wake up on time but have always struggled to do so will need to shake their phones until the shake bar fills up to turn it off. This means that you’ll be wide awake by the time the shake bar is filled up. On the other hand, lighter dreamers can swipe up and kick off the day. A variety of features help this app to stand out in the sea of alarm applications. You’ll love it.

In the era of digital marketing, it’s hard to ignore Buffer, especially if you are an entrepreneur or a passionate social media user. This app will make managing your social media accounts a whole lot easier. Buffer enables orchestrating social media releases from a single dashboard.

In addition, you can schedule all your social media releases in advance. For example, if you’d want to share something important with your followers in the evening but you doubt you’ll have time, you can prepare everything a few hours (or even days) earlier and then simply set the time (and date) when you’d want to have those posts sent out to your social media.
