Wakie: Have Strangers Wake You Up

#Telephone

Perhaps to compensate for the lack of non-digital human interaction in a social media driven world, the Wakie app allows you to set a time when you want to be woken up by a stranger.

Wakie’s community consists of Wakies (callers) and Sleepyheads (yup). If you want an alarm call, you just set an alarm time through the app, and when the wake-up time arrives, you’ll be connected to a Wakie of a similar age and the opposite gender. With that condition enforced, Wakie suddenly meanders on a slightly different trajectory, but we digress.
