"There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met."

With Sunrise, every morning is a great opportunity to make a new friend somewhere in the world! Sunrise is a social alarm clock, inspired by today's generation of snapchat lovers and tinder-ers.

Here's how it works:

  1. A user (User A) sets an alarm, as they would normally, for when they'd like to wake up.
  2. Around the selected time, another user (User N) around the world is given a notification to wake them up, as well as a random challenge to theme the call (ranging from telling a scary story, making someone laugh, to flattery, and more).
  3. User A is automatically dropped in to a video chat with User N, and woken up to a complete surprise around sunrise.
  4. If both Users had a great experience, they can drop in to a text chat to continue their conversation.

We're particularly proud of how seamless the app is - users waiting in the queue are instantly dropped in to an upcoming alarm. Also, after the initial request, the call is initiated and connected without any interaction from either user.

This app is targeted at anyone and everyone - from those looking for a pleasant change to their monotonous alarm clock noise in the morning, to anyone looking for a friend, relationship, or a random surprise to get their day started.
