The Wakie app, which just launched for Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 today, give users a way to wake up each day with a new person. Before your minds go in a certain direction, the app has been designed so that it gives users a call on their phone with a real person each morning, with a different person on the call every day,
The app previously launched on Android and its creators claim that it has 1.5 million users worldwide who have already made 30 million calls. Here's how the Wakie app works directly from the dev team:
Set an alarm for 7:00am and you'll get a phone call from another Wakie member at 7:00am. The calls last just 60 seconds—you'll hear a warning at 50 seconds, and the call is automatically disconnected at 1 minute. No awkward goodbyes, no long conversations—calls are quick and casual. You can also choose to wake someone up yourself, too!
It's actually kind of a brilliant new way to meet people and is one of those ideas that you have to wonder why no one has though about this kind of app until now. Best of all, the app and its service are free.
