Nuj is the FIRST alarm clock that uses money to motivate you to get out of bed!

→ How it works:
1. Set an alarm time, and a get up time
2. Add a challenge to prove you got up, e.g. a barcode you have to scan
3. Set a penalty
4. If you don't prove you got up by completing the challenge, e.g. scanning 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 (goes to charity)

→ Have you ever turned your phone off to avoid getting up from a different alarm clock app? Nuj is the ONLY alarm clock that includes cheat detection by storing alarms in the cloud! No more cheap tricks!

Extremely Effective Tool

“Life Changing” gets tossed around a lot about many things. But its a phrase I’d consider using when it comes to using this app. Once I am awake - I am good to go - but its always the the getting out of bed that is the problem for me. My bed is just too warm and comfortable to get out of bed at times. But this app changes that for me. When it goes off I head into the bathroom to scan a barcode to turn off the alarm. With other apps, it was just way too easy to turn the phone off completely - that is where Nuj separates itself with the back end credit card processing. I don’t typically enjoy paying for apps - but when I am properly using the app, it allows me to have about an extra 90 minutes in my day that I am able to be up and productive before the kids. That is about 45 hours a month - that is a life changing amount of time for $5/ month. The developer is extremely responsive and helpful which is such a bonus! THANK YOU SO MUCH, NOELLE! Keep up the great work!

45 hours is an incredible amount of time!! I really appreciate you sharing and the words of encouragement. It makes working on Nuj all the more worth it! Thanks so much for the wonderful review!

It’s not instant, but it’s effective

I've been on the hunt for the perfect solution to my morning snooze habit for years. Despite trying everything - sunlight alarms, alarm clocks that talk, alarm clocks that play birds, favorite songs, weird gadgets, an alarm that counted my steps… everything. Either I would get used to the alarms and start ignoring them, or they were so distressing that I had to hide from them... in bed. Training myself to respond differently to a cue after practicing snooze for 40 years isn’t easy. This alarm isn’t instant, but nothing that works to rewrite a habit ever is. Nuj is easily customizable. I figure out how much time I need, how many alarms will lift me out of sleep and over I can make an intentional choice, I work to find exactly how much motivation i need. I don’t think I’ll ever be a person who gets it dialed in and everything’s great from then on, but it’s so easily customizable, that I can hone in what works for me, and make it do exactly that. Nuj can be a Life changer!

Thanks for the in-depth review! Indeed, the path to success is never a straight line. It's an honor to hear that Nuj is a part of your progress towards changing habits for the better!

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!
