Alarm app lets you ask your iPhone if it's time to get up

Here's a common scenario: You wake up in the night, wonder if the alarm clock will go off soon, fumble for your glasses, and then look at your clock. Of course, all of this makes it less likely you'll go back to sleep. Which is what makes this alarm clock special. Wake Up Now? ($0.99) lets you simply like there with your eyes closed and ask your iPhone if it's time to get up. Your iPhone will tell you what time it is. You actually don't even need to ask anything in particular. You can just grunt, and it will announce the time. You can set how loud of sound it will take for it to say the time. You can choose an alarm from your music library or use one from the classic alarm sounds provided in the app.
