One might say I'm "not a morning person" but the truth is
I'm not much of a "waking up person." I think mornings are beautiful
once I've dragged myself out of bed, but the sweet, sweet seduction of
the snooze button gets me every time. Recently I tried out the Math Alarm Clock app for Android, and
while it hasn't cured me of my early morning bargaining, it's now my preferred phone alarm. Maybe it'll work for you.
There's a pretty extensive
review of it here, but the gist of it is that you have to answer
math problems to shut off your alarm. The problems range from "simple" to
"expert"... although I have to admit that the simple math seems much
harder with an alarm blaring at you and your eyes half shut. It's
pretty cool. It costs a dollar. If you're interesting, the direct download is to the right. (psst... Android only. Use a barcode app on your phone :))
P.S. I made a Youtube playlist of all the songs I've posted on the blerg. I'll continue to add to the playlist until I have a better solution. You don't need a Youtube account to listen, so save the link and enjoy!
