- For a simple alarm app, the permission it requires makes us wonder why they need access to some of our personal information on our phone. It could potentially be selling information to other companies.

The Bottom Line
The Funny Morning Alarm Ringtones app gives you exceptional and unique alarms to get you up in the morning. So you don’t have to sit in your car and use your traffic apps to avoid being late for work. The permissions, however, it quite concerning. It makes us question as to why the app needs to know my email address and my list of contacts. The ads are a downer but we’ve come to expect that with free apps. Overall, the app works nicely and the tones that are quite creative.
Closer Look – Funny Morning Alarm Ringtones
The Funny Morning Alarm Ringtones app might be a little mischievous for asking and requiring permissions and access that has nothing to do with the overall functionality of the app. Although, before we start judging even after reading our quick summary above, let’s first take a closer look at this app and what makes it worth your time.
1. Customizability and Functionality
Part of finding ringtones and alarms you enjoy is saving them for later and easily making them as the defaults for your phone. When we open the app and viewed the list of ringtones, we noticed a settings tab next to every single song. This is actually a nice feature because you simply click the button and it reveals a few options for customization. It’s a little strange because they only give you icons and no explanations, but we figured it out soon enough.
The bell icon lets you set a song as your default alarm, which took just a few seconds and then we could wake up in the morning.
The little music icon allows you to set the song as your default ringtone. This obviously isn’t a reason we would download an alarm app, but it’s nice to know that the app has additional features packed into the small interface.
The app also includes a page to change your preferences for notifications, ringtones, and alarms. We won’t be using this area probably since you can do all of these steps from a song page.
Our favorite part of the app while conducting my Funny Morning Alarm Ringtones for Android review was the simple favorites area. You just tag a song as one of your favorites and it’s placed in a list.
The homepage is simple, and this is exactly what I want from an alarm ringtone app. The first page shows the entire catalog of songs and the only other tab is your Favorites page. Click on the Settings tab to assign ringtones or click the Play button to test an alarm ringtone out.
Once you click on a song the app plays right there and doesn’t navigate to a new page. We really liked this feature, because we’ve used other ringtone and alarm apps that make it a nightmare to play a song and then click on the back buttons to test out another one. The final thing that everyone probably wants to know is whether or not the alarm ringtones wake you up in the morning. The reviews say so, and we always woke up with a laugh. It basically confuses you a little bit and then you realize that it’s just a silly alarm, which was always good enough to grab our attention and pry us out of bed.
The only thing we’d be concerned about is the song selection. We tend to change our alarms occasionally so we don’t get used to just one. With more than 100 ringtones, how long will that last?
3. Twists of Being a Free App
The second we started our Funny Morning Alarm Ringtones for Android review we opened the app and saw this huge ad below. It covered the entire screen, made the app impossible to see and revealed an app that we had no interest in. We’ve come to expect ads on most apps, especially when they are free, but we’ve never seen such a blatant ad pop up so quickly. We didn’t even have a chance to see a single ringtone and this popped up. Since it’s quite easy to X out and we don’t really mind ads, it’s not the worst thing in the world, but it actually gives us more concerns about the company, since their permissions are a little weird.
It seems like they are trying to make as much money as possible on the app with huge ads, and that leads me to believe that their permissions are more than for helping the user experience. We’ll talk about that later in the Funny Morning Alarm Ringtones for Android review.
4. Ease of Use
When you open the app it gives you a few nice instructions on how to use the app properly. It told me how to swipe throughout the app and what each button means. The only problem with this is that I didn’t remember all of the instructions and the buttons aren’t always easy to understand.
There’s also a nice Features page that shows up before you get started in the Funny Morning Alarm Ringtones app in case you were wondering. It’s somewhat helpful, but I can’t imagine you couldn’t figure this out for yourself or know this before going into the app.
The initial instructional pages are about all you get in terms of support. We’re not sure if this will change in the future, but the developer’s website is virtually barren. It provides zero support and no way to contact the developer. We did notice that the Google Play page actually had a link to email the developer, but we haven’t heard back when we sent them a quick email about one of the features. It seems like they don’t put much emphasis on support with this app, but it doesn’t bother us too much, because the app is quite self-explanatory.
5. Abysmal App Permissions
This is where we had a huge problem with the Funny Morning Alarm Ringtones app. It’s a simple ringtone app yet they still tap into your personal information. Why? we have no darn clue. Overall, the following concerns are why we scratch our heads at the Funny Morning Alarm Ringtones app:
- The app can access your contact lists
- It can access your accounts and even obtain your email address
- The app can figure out your location and then share it with other people
Since the app doesn’t utilize any of this information we tend to assume that this app company possibly sells information to make additional money. Judging by the annoying pop-up ads they are trying to milk it for what it’s worth. So if you don’t want to give up your information to a random app company then don’t download the app, however, the songs are pretty cool if you’re willing to risk it.
Ultimately, the Funny Morning Alarm Ringtones for Android is a sleek and simple app that gives you exactly what it should. The only concerns we have is its permissions and ads, but the ads don’t bother us much. In our opinion, it’s a solid app that made us smile whenever we needed to wake up, although we probably won’t be keeping it on our phones since we don’t want any of our personal information to be sold to other companies or used without our permission.
