Start each day with a Podcast on Podcast Alarm.

When the alarm blares you just want to make it stop, hit snooze as fast as possible. What if you actually enjoyed the sound of your alarm clock? What if you actually learnt something from it and started the day with an extra bit of motivation?!

We recommend starting each day with a podcast. With Podcast Alarm you can select whatever kind of podcast you’re into as your morning alarm. We've got everything from business to fitness, and crime thrillers to cooking. Choose from 1000's of podcasts, including of course all the most popular podcasts, The Daily, TED Talks, and Serial for example. 

Instead of hitting snooze on your alarm, dozing off again and feeling worse, you can actually listen to something interesting. You can set up multiple alarms for anytime of the day - the drive home, the gym, winding down at night. Plus you can play immediately without setting an alarm like a regular podcast player.


• Play your favourite podcast as an alarm, any time, any day
• Choose from 1000's of podcasts
• Find your favourite and add it to your personal queue
• Discover more, our themed lists will help you find podcasts you're into
• Auto download the latest episode and have it set up to play every day

Good, not great

Expected more for the price.

Also, the podcasts can be played at different speeds... but there’s no way to have that speed every day. Each morning I have to go into the app to make that morning go at a different speed than 1. Seems like an easy fix that would be nice.

Thanks for the review, I am actually working on a more feature rich settings view and I will include your suggestion. Please consider updating your star rating when I get that fixed it will make a huge difference to me, thanks again!

EDIT: This feature has been added based on your review, you can find it in the settings view which is in version 1.16 or above. Thanks again for the support.

Been searching for so long and finally something like this happened! It works the basics. However, would be great to be able to subscribe to multiple podcasts so it can keep playing in turns until user stops them (alternative daily news sources in the morning for example). Also would be great if user can set up multiple alarms for people who snooze! And there doesn't seem to have a easy way to temporarily disable an reoccurring alarm for a sleep in morning - need to delete and re-add. If this is a paid app we expect more flexible features!

Thanks for the review!

Some really good suggestions here, I have a view in the works that will be the first one you see when opening the app after alarm goes off, it’s going to have snooze functionality.

The subscriptions idea is on its way too.

I would love to hear more of your ideas, you can reach me on Twitter or email -

I have wanted to wake to podcasts for years, and now I finally can! This isn’t just any old app, though. You can schedule multiple alarms for multiple podcasts. There is a nightstand mode showing the time all night. The best part? A developer who really cares. I posted one request at Facebook and Bam! New feature (I asked that they make the time in nightstand mode float a bit to prevent burn in on OLED iPhones).

Glad you were able to leave me a review , that feature should be out and all. Thanks again for the support!
