Alarmy

Price: Free / $2.49

Alarmy calls itself the world's most annoying alarm clock. This one has a unique premise. There is a registration spot that you set in your house. You take the phone to that spot when the alarm goes off. Otherwise, it doesn't turn off. That may be too hardcore for some people. The app also includes various challenges and puzzles in order to get it to turn off. It's one of the more creative alarm clock apps for sure.

Google Assistant can double as an alarm clock. You simply ask it to set an alarm for you. The alarm then goes off as scheduled. It also supports countdown timers, reminders, and it can add things to your calendar. It always goes through the stock alarm clock app. That may or may not be a good thing. After all, you're here looking for a new one, right? In any case, it's good for those who use Google Assistant and need something super basic and free.
