Like almost everyone who owns a smartphone, I use my iPhone as an alarm clock, since I tend to have it around me almost all of the time. The one thing that I miss about using a phone as an alarm clock is that there is no real snooze button for me to abuse. Sure, iOS has a software-snooze, but it doesn’t feel the same.
Distil Union’s Snooze is here to change that. The Snooze has a giant snooze button at the top, which you can press as much as you like. The dock will depress the volume rocker on your iPhone, which activates the snooze function. It’s definitely a simple design that will work well. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to through this dock around the room and bash on it if you are very grumpy in the mornings like I am. You’ll also have to take your iPhone out of its case if you use one.
You can get the Snooze for $39.99(USD) from Distil Union’s website. It works for the iPhone 4/4S and the iPhone 5. For an extra $10, you can get the stylish red woven charging cable (30-pin connector version only).
You might not be a morning person, but you can’t escape the fact that your job begins at seven-thirty in the morning. Rather than be a grouch about it, why not take out your frustrations on your alarm clock instead? If you’re thinking about doing that, then I’ve got just the alarm for you.
Appropriately called the Snooze, this alarm clock has probably got the largest snooze button I’ve ever seen. It works with your iPhone 4 or 4S, so this is only for grouches who own either one of these devices. It also doubles as a dock for your phone, so you can charge it overnight while using it as an alarm clock.
No worries about slamming the snooze button on this thing, because it’s made of rubber so it just flexes when you hit it.
For updates on the Snooze or to buy one, check it out over on Kickstarter. A minimum pledge of $40 will get you a basic wooden Snooze (use your own cable), $55 gets you one with a red dock cable, and the fancy aluminum versions are available for $99.
