The problem with the default alarm apps on our phones is that you can easily confuse the stop and the snooze button. Sometimes when I want to tap “snooze“ I accidentally slide right and turn off the alarm completely. I also think there should be an option to choose how long you want to sleep until your alarm goes off again.

Nap App is a concept for a new alarm clock that enables you to set the snooze time manually in the morning. You simply draw a line across the screen, the Slumber Path, which allows you to choose a time between 1 and 9 minutes. The Slumber Path was created with the open source programming language Processing.

You don’t even have to look at your phone, if you don’t want to. As soon as you tap on your screen a voice will ask, “How long do you want to sleep?“ So if you reply with “5 minutes“, a new alarm will be set for you. If you don’t say anything or if your answer can’t be understood, the next alarm will automatically go off in 10 minutes.
