While it may be the last thing that you’d feel like doing when you get up in the morning, smiling after being buzzed awake by a ring is compulsory with this app. The Smile Clock, requires of you to grin at your smartphone’s camera in order to stop the clock from making noise.
To determine if you are happy enough, the camera tracks key features of your face. It even tries to attract a genuine smile from you by doing things such as showing pre-selected images and playing songs designed to make someone’s day. The Israel-based developers of the app, Appfro, shares that the app will save a picture of you smiling in a photo gallery as a reminder.
Just in case you don’t feel like smiling, there is a snooze feature. The app is available for download on Google Play for free.
