Alarm clock app difficult to turn off

CONTROGUERRA, Italy, March 14 (UPI) -- A pair of Italian developers have created an alarm clock smartphone app designed to help users wake up with math games and other tasks.

The FreakyAlarm app, created by Enrico Angelini and Gabriele Di Lorenzo, has a basic mode where users must take pictures of objects or barcodes before bed then photograph the same objects or barcodes to shut the alarm off in the morning, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.

The app also has an "evil" setting, which requires users to solve difficult math equations to shut off the alarm.

Other settings include a game requiring users to pop the "alarm bubbles" in a precise order, a "Memory" type game and a game requiring users to tap certain shapes a specific number of times.

The app can be purchased for $1.99 in the iTunes store.
