I understand wake-up calls in hotels, but having strangers call your personal phone? Eh??? Wakie is an app that encourages random strangers around the world to wake you up with a phone call. Right now, Wakie is open to sleepyheads in the US, Canada, UK, Singapore and Hong Kong. But if you’re playing the role of ‘waker’, you can sign up anywhere. To use Wakie, you have to be prepared to sign in using your phone number. Wakie promises that your number will remain ‘safe and anonymous’. (Why does that sound fishy to me...) You just set an alarm time through the app, and when the wake-up time arrives, you’ll be connected to a Wakie of a similar age and the opposite gender. If no one signs up to call you you'll get an auto-alarm. This app sounds a little too freaky to me but to each their own.
