If you have a hard time getting up in the morning, a new Android app called Snap Me Up might be just the solution for you.

Rather than using a button or a shake to wake you up in the morning, Snap Me Up makes you take a photo of yourself before your alarm is dismissed. Each snap from your morning awakening will be saved into an album titled ‘My Sleepy Snaps,’ where you can browse through your selfies at your own discretion.

If you’d rather not see your own face in the morning, Snap Me Up also has a mode where you will be presented with different image from your phone’s gallery each morning. For some, this might not be much better, but there’s an alternative nonetheless.

In addition to being used as a standard alarm, Snap Me Up also includes a timer mode for shorter naps or boiling eggs.

You can download Snap Me Up from the Google Play Store for free.
