This would probably genuinely help me get up in the morning.
Something or somebody would get punched but I’d download it. Unless it turns out that it costs more than $0.99 to replace a broken phone or a broken hand. Which seems unlikely. Brilliant!

Sorry, I would just set four different alarms…
Sadly, I would probably just turn off the app, set up a timer, and roll over back to sleep. My early-morning “I don’t want to wake up” brain can be ridiculously sneaky when it comes to figuring out ways to let me stay in bed.
To make it even better, have the price be a donation to an organization you do not like – NRA, ACLU, Planned Parenthood, the Republican Party.
Such thing would trigger a danger of dismissing the alarm and then falling back asleep without any chance to be woken again in 5/10/15 minutes (or any applicable interval imbetween snoozed alarms)…
Problem is you aren’t acting fully consciously at that point and probably couldn’t grasp the ramifications of your actions.
Think a better one would be that moves money from current to saving account not pays a random company. Causr you’ll do it anyway at least now it is encouraging saving.
