The simple design of Carrot Alarm is easy to use, but if you decide to sleep in, you're going to be in trouble.

Don't touch the eye

Carrot Alarm's ocular sensor is not something you should tap with your finger. Carrot will explain to you that it's like being poked in the eye if you keep doing it.

Set your alarm

To set your wake-up time, simply drag your finger vertically. When you're done, touch and drag the app's camera eye to the right into the on position.

Complete your chores

When the alarm goes off, you'll need to follow the directions onscreen and complete tasks to turn it off. Hopefully the activity will help you wake up.

Hit snooze at your own peril

When you hit the snooze button, you know you're going to hear it from Carrot the next time the alarm goes off.
