1. CharmAlarm An innovative alarm app designed by WiSci GirlsVeena Anilkumar, Snehitha Reddy, Janae Hoyle, and Madeline O’Connell Center for Advanced Studies, Wheeler High School, Marietta, GA
2. About Us WiSci - Women in Science We are here to introduce a new app that will help people wake up when they need to and ensure that they do not go back to sleep
3. About the CharmAlarm  The charm alarm can be customized, allowing users to choose from a variety of alarm sounds.  Users can choose to turn the the puzzle/math option on or off and they can also choose the difficulty level of the puzzles. Every time the user gets the puzzle wrong or hesitates for too long, a buzzer will sound and a bright blue light will flash. After 10 seconds, another puzzle will show and the process will repeat.  If the user does not get the puzzle right after 3 tries, the sound will change to a more soothing sound and the app will recite items listed on the to- do-list for that day.
4. About the CharmAlarm (cont.)  If the user decides to disregard the puzzle/math options, the background noise will turn on with the alarm. There will be a button to turn off the sounds, however when a person presses this, the blue light will turn on and the phone will read out tasks listed on your calendar for that day.  The longer the user takes to disarm the alarm, the louder the songs will play. The songs can last for a preset amount of time. This will help the user know how much time he/she has to get ready.  The user interface is very comprehensible and easy to use. It is very easy to create a new alarm UI, and to change the settings.
5. Market Research CharmAlarm is designed for high school and college students. These two age groups suffer from the most sleep deprivation due to stress and homework. 50% of high school students and 95% of college students own a smartphone. Due to these large percentages, we believe that our app can reach a large proportion of our target audience. According to WebMD, blue light may interfere with sleep, so incorporating blue light into the alarm app would better help the user to wake up
6. Marketing and Sales We will market our app using social networking sites and ask colleges to advertise with us. The app will be free, but a more advanced version with more options will cost $0.99 The paid version will include a calendar, news, and more options for puzzles and math problems. We plan on completing the app and allowing people to download it as a beta version Then, we will fix any bugs or issues and will update the app.
