iOS: There’s no shortage of alarm clock apps to choose from, and many of them have creative ways of making sure you get out of bed. UHP Alarm Clock forces you to get out of bed by tracking your path.
The app is $2.99, but it does a good job of making sure you get your butt out of bed. It asks you where you want to go when you wake up, and unless you follow a path you specify, the alarm clock won’t turn off. You can also connect your Facebook and Twitter accounts to use the app’s social media alarm. If you don’t wake up on time, the app will post a status update to your channels notifying your followers that you slept in.

You can read their policy in full here. If you’re looking for an Android alternative, I like Morning Routine. It doesn’t force you to walk around, but you can use its “Scan Barcode” feature to fudge it (just make sure the barcode is in your bathroom, for example, so you have to get up for the alarm to stop).
