Description

Taking the deaf world by storm and featured in the news, Deafwake was created by a deaf person and is designed to ensure everyone can get up when they’re supposed to. Removing the risk of sleeping in and being late for meetings, it allows deaf individuals or heavy sleepers to be on time, every time. Deaf Wake, an LED / Vibration / Visual based alarm app for people who are deaf, hearing Impaired or just want a really cool alarm clock. This deaf app will be your best friend as well as your worse enemy (if you don't like being woken up) It is designed to utilise all the senses of your iPhone. It has a flashing screen, it vibrates, it uses the camera flash and is loud. The app has hit all four corners of the globe, including the UK, USA, Australia, Germany, Ireland, Denmark, Canada, Norway, Switzerland, and Mexico. And with more than 1,000 downloads on the App Store, and over 500,000 Facebook users reached, the app has proven to be a huge hit with those who struggle daily with the realities of being deaf or hard of hearing. See video of app in action - https://www.facebook.com/deafwake/# ********************* The App has an easy interface where you can select the camera flash, have a flashing screen, have it vibrate or use sound. You may select one or two or even use all the senses of your iPhone. Not all senses may be appropriate for every scenario for an example during a work meeting you may not want the phone to rudely interrupt you by sound or vibration. A discreet flashing screen telling you that your child needs to be picked up from nursery may be more appropriate. ********************* Be Alert ///// Never be late again. Never burn the Sunday roast. Never miss meetings. All because you didn't hear the phone (or didn't feel it vibrating) Choose Your Senses ///// Choose the flashing screen. Just have the phone vibrate. Set the camera flash. Be alerted by sound. Or have all four turned on. Descriptive Alarms ///// Uniquely give each alarm setting a description. A description could be 'Make your partner a cup of tea to get out of the doghouse' Made By A Deaf Person ///// An app designed by a hearing impaired person with deaf people in mind (or just plain heavy sleepers) Apple Watch ///// The App is also designed to work with the Apple Watch. You can use the Apple Watch to also set your alarms as well as other features. Choose Clock Interfaces ///// Choose from a selection of two clock faces. Simply swipe left or right. You may prefer an easier analogue clock. ********************* No longer do you have to put the phone under your pillow or in your pocket in order to (hopefully) be woken up. At night put the iPhone at the side of the bed and let it flash to wake you up (using the flashing screen and camera flash). Put the iPhone on the kitchen table whilst chopping carrots to remind you to take the roast out of the oven. Settle down, watch a movie and let the App tell you when its time to go to bed. ********************* As a long life deaf person I have been frustrated with the lack of innovation designed for deaf people in technology. One problem I have had is a suitable alarm clock or timer that appropriately notifies me. This App was born out of frustration and was initially just developed for my own personal use.

NOTE - App must be running. Set the alarm and put the phone facedown (so screen goes black), upright or in your pocket etc. Don't turn phone off via the switch or home button as it is not possible to bypass the notification system when the iPhone is locked. This is the same for ALL Apps and other alarm clocks. *********************

    The alarm does not work on my iPhone 7. I’ve tried keeping the app open but still the alarm doesn’t go off until I unlock my phone.
  • Disappointment!

    I’m profoundly deaf without my hearing aids, and need a flashing travel alarm for when I’m camping. At home, I wake to my flashing light connected to my alarm clock, so have wanted something like this for a long time. Very disappointed that it didn’t work! I followed all directions, but - nothing!😥
  • Deafinitely Disappointing

    I’ve always had trouble with hearing alarms that come on my phone because they don’t vibrate or flash enough to get my attention. I got this hoping it would help. Beyond the demo, it’s kind of useless. I can’t set multiple alarms, even after following all the directions. :/ hopefully this gets better. The idea is pretty great.
  • Best so far

    When I take my hearing aids out I am almost totally deaf. This alarm system placed on a wooden night stand next to the bed does wake me up. Best I have found so far.

    Not working. Tried everything short of sacrificing a goat to the app gods. No matter how I set it, where I put it, how it’s set up, it never goes off. Only goes off for the preview alarm. Clock on the main screen is wrong and can’t be adjusted. Can only set one alarm at a time. Wish I had read reviews. “Designed for Deaf” my butt. Vibrations and lifted are not close to strong enough to wake myself of my hubby up. (Both Deaf). I want a refund!

    Got it two days ago, two days I've over slept because it doesn't go off. I've got it open, phone not on sleep, it's set correctly, says the alarm is active', nothing. I'd like a refund please.

    Bought this with expectations of it working, even though there have been so many recent one-star reviews. Could be user error? No. It doesn't work except to show in demo/test mode how it would work if it worked. I have placed it face down, face up, leaning against something. Nothing. Also, I can't add more than one alarm. This app is a great disappointment to we hearing-impaired.
  • Soft vibrations are a problem.

    IPhone has to be face down to work. Vibrations are too soft to wake up a deaf one.
