You know you shouldn’t, but it’s so hard to resist hitting that snooze button every morning. If you’re like most iPhone addicts, your phone is your alarm clock complete with snooze button and all. It’s so easy to tap that snooze button too. A flawless responsiveness makes tapping a snooze button far easier than trying to slide any kind of other snooze button – perhaps it’s too easy.
If you can’t resist hitting that snooze button regularly, the new Snooze app for iPhone may convince you otherwise. This app donates $0.25 of your money to the charity of your choice every time you snooze. If you’re an avid snoozer, you could easily spend more than $2 every morning you sleep in.
How Snooze Works
According to developers, there are two times per month that you can donate money to a charity. The app allows you to choose a charity of your choice from a long list of reputable charities. Once chosen, you can tap that snooze button, and the app will count how many times you’ve decided to donate.
The concept of this app is really simple, and those who want to donate to charity can do so simply and easily with this app. It’s also a great way for certain charities to gain attention. For example, if you happen to run a reputable charity that is seeking donations (and what charity isn’t?), all you have to do is find a way to get your charity on the Snooze app list. The most clicks you get, the more money your charity gets.
Aside from the obvious advantage that you will be giving money to charity when you use the Snooze app, there are other reasons why this app may be worth looking into. If you run a company or organization, asking everyone in your office who has an iPhone to donate in your company’s name could result in a decent tax write-off.
The same goes for any individual who wants a bit of a tax break. You’d have to prove that you have donated to a charity, but that shouldn’t be too hard to do with this app. Really, the Snooze app is a win-win situation. You can give to charity, sleep a bit longer, and feel good when you wake up knowing that you’ve done a great deed.
Do I really need to point these out? Ok, the disadvantage to this app is that you may forget about it. Let’s say, for example, that you set your Snooze app alarm Friday night for Saturday morning. Then, you decide to go out Friday night, stay out late, and decide to sleep in the following morning. When that alarm goes off Saturday morning, you will, no doubt, be tempted to hit the snooze button numerous times.
This would result in lots of dollars being taken out of your bank account. Some avid snoozers may even find themselves in credit card debt thanks to this app. Ok, that’s an extreme example, but you get the idea. If you’re a responsible adult who is conscious of what happens when hitting the Snooze app snooze button, this app is a great idea. If not, maybe you should write a check to your favorite charity instead.
