Nuj is an alarm clock that charges you money (goes to charity) for staying in bed!

How it works:
1. Set an alarm time, and a get up time
2. Add some barcodes you have to scan
3. Set a penalty
4. If you don't scan one of the barcodes by the get up time, you get charged the penalty

For example:
1. Set an alarm for 7:00am with a get up time of 7:05am
2. Add the toothpaste and shampoo barcodes
3. Add a $10 penalty
4. Alarm goes off at 7:00am
5. Get up and scan the toothpaste barcode before 7:05am. Or, don't, and lose $10 (money goes to charity)

The single most valuable app I have (and pay for!)

This app has been maybe not life-changing, but at least day-changing most days. It’s crazy. I don’t oversleep. My body is on a schedule. I get up at 5am on WEEKENDS. Every weekend, without fail. Sleeping in later than I plan tends to put me in a bad mood all day, and that just doesn’t happen anymore! I used to use Alarmy but then would turn my phone off and sleep later. There’s no way out of this one once you’re within an hour of it! The subscription is absolutely worth it. Seriously. Do it. I promise im not sponsored or anything, I just really like this app and not being a lazy slug on Saturday mornings.

One request would be more options of where to donate the penalties for missing an alarm. Khan Academy is great, but would be nice to have a variety of different types of charities. Thank you!! ♥️

Thanks for the wonderful review! It’s an honor to have the title of most valuable app!

I’m always exploring different charity/penalty destination options. Feel free to email me (, or use the in-app chat (in the settings tab) to get in touch. I’d love to hear about the other charities you have in mind, and how they can be included!

A great concept with great execution

The idea of paying a penalty for sleeping in might sound scary, but Nuj hits the nail on the head. It’s a well-oiled machine of wake-up motivation.

First, the penalty is paid to a charity, not to the creator, which prevents the app from taking advantage of you. If you’re charged a penalty and feel it wasn’t fair, you can get in touch with the creator and discuss waiving it. Because the app doesn’t profit from the penalties, you can trust the process to dispute a charge will be handled fairly. The creator is very responsive; that personal touch sets Nuj apart from other, similar apps.

Next, the app does not allow you to change the alarm within one hour of when it goes off. This prevents you from switching it off if you wake up early and get tempted to sleep in.

Third, the app offers simple instructions for syncing it up with your phone’s alarm clock app.

I’ve been using this app for six months now and haven’t slept in once. After a few weeks of use, you won’t even consider the idea of not getting up when your alarm goes off. It truly helps you build new, better habits.

Challenge Accepted

I use this app on a daily basis to wake up at an uncomfortable time, which makes my day go by smoother. Not just for me, but for my family too as I get my daily necessary things done before every one else is up.

My wife has told me that I’m a different individual as I tend to be happier in the mornings due to knocking out 25% of my daily to-do items off my place. Which makes me not rush my mornings anymore. I feel lighter once 7am hits.

The higher the $ amount on commits to, the more likely you’ll stick to your alarm time scan ;)
