I'll bet you could have lots of fun with this

Though perhaps not in the way it's intended.

Wakie, The Social Alarm Clock That Lets You Wake Up Strangers, Finally Arrives On iOS

"Hey there, I'm just calling to wake you up," I said a little awkwardly.

"Thanks. Where are you from?" replied a female voice with a thick Irish accent.

"The UK. You're from Ireland, right?"

"How could you tell?" she said wryly.

"The flag at the top of the screen."

It took 9 months to be approved, but, Wakie — the 'social alarm clock' that lets you wake up (and be woken up by) strangers — has finally arrived on iOS. [...]

"Most people hate alarm clocks, billions of people feel unhappy every day with these classic ringers and ding-congers," Wakie co-founder and CEO Hrachik Adjamian tells me. "We make people happy with the voice of friendly strangers from all over the world who try to make you smile in the morning. A lot of people who use our service say that they started to love mornings. The better you start your day the better you feel yourself for the rest of the day."
