Rise and shine

Uniqlo Wake Up is a social alarm app from Japanese fashion retailer Uniqlo that incorporates the current weather, time and day of the week into its wake-up music.

The app wakes users up with music that’s automatically created based on the weather, with a voice to announce the time, weather and day of the week in either English or Mandarin Chinese. The app’s background also changes with the day of the week.

In addition, users can share a record of their awakening, including the time, weather and temperature at the moment they turned the alarm off, via social media. An aggregation of such data from users around the world is even visible as part of the app.
