HOW IT WORKS
As the name "Step Out!" implied, the only way you can turn off this alarm clock is STEPPING out of your bed (you still can snooze - in a limited duration). It uses advanced image recognition and step tracking technologies to check whether you’re far away from your bed.
After ringing, the app asks you to capture another photo of a specified place, it should be where you usually be every time you wake up, such as the bathroom, the kitchen, ... So you just take a photo and do your routine work like washing your face or preparing breakfast.
Another alternative is using the step counter, which simplifies this process into just nothing. You wake up and go to wherever you want with the device. After reaching enough number of steps, the alarm will automatically turn off. It’s simply a smarter alarm with no additional action., You’ll love using it from the very first time.

Ratings and Reviews
So far so good! UPDATED
UPDATE 2: I've also noticed you can turn the power button off too to bypass the alarm. If this issue and the vibrate one were fixed, I think this alarm would be flawless. Also needs to be updated for new iOS.
UPDATE: So, I've discovered a very big flaw in this alarm. If the alarm is going off, all you need to do is flick the switch on your phone to vibrate, and then it will just send you little notifications which vibrate once each time. Very easy to ignore and sleep through. So, instead of it waking me up, I just turn it to vibrate and then keep sleeping, because I don't even notice the notifications. This is something that needs to be changed as it is a loophole too easy to take advantage of. Also, I agree with others that the sensors need to be updated.
As long as I've been using this app (which is admittedly not too long), it has really helped me to wake up! It really is the stepping that gets me up and moving to the point where I feel like, "Why bother going back to bed?" I've been so productive since I've been getting up bright and early. Great app and I look forward to more early morning thanks in no small part to it.
This app is so annoying! I love it!
I hate mornings. I mean I really hate mornings. It's very easy for me to shut off an alarm and turn around and go back to sleep. I'm not talking snooze, I'm talking shut it off and go back to bed. This alarm clock is amazing! It makes you take a certain amount of preprogrammed steps before it will shut up. You can't fool this thing… I've tried! I've tried shaking it, rocking it, mimicking footsteps, but none of that works. Unlike most exercise apps that you can fool by shaking your device, this will not be fooled! I have this set to make me walk 20 steps before it will shut off. For me, this is the perfect distance from my bedroom to my coffeemaker, and my coffeemaker to my washroom. This app is great and it has so many features! Full disclosure, I never would've bought this app. It was featured on one of those free up a day websites and I tried it out. I'm very fortunate for that, so I tell a lot of people about this app because I figured it's the least I can do seeing as how it's wonderful! Also, they ask you to write a review to use certain backgrounds for free, I don't have a problem with that so here I am. If you are not a morning person, if you can't get out of bed in the morning, check this app out.
Love it already! **Updated**
**Update- Dropped from 5 to 3 stars. I did love this app, but now it lets me snooze over and over no matter what the settings are. I wake up with the phone on the pillow next to me and I've been snoozing it (for 1 hr 45 mins this morning) :( Something has changed**
This is only my first day to use it, but I love it already. I normally hit the snooze button for up to 2 hours with having to get up to my dresser and just can't get up. I'm awake first thing today. I used the option to take a photo of my coffee maker out in the kitchen. Because the big light was on for the original pic, my little light was not enough for a matching picture, so by the time I walked out there and had to retake the pic with the big light on, I was awake. And I set the coffee maker to auto, so I filled my cup with the fresh brewed coffee while I was there. This is a great idea for an app.
The only draw back is no instructions with it, but I googled instructions for the app and found a pretty good overall review that told how to use it. Make sure you go in to the main app options as well as the ones to set alarms. And you can disable preset alarms if you are off schedule. Just swipe down on the set time and it will change to disabled or back to enabled. And you can set multiple ones, more than just the three at the bottom. Happy waking!
