Wakerupper is currently operated and owned by New Your City based Abstract Factory, Inc. The site has maintained the same purpose it has since it was created: to offer users an easy way to stay on schedule and avoid forgetting an important date or event. The site was originally entirely free, however additional premium features were added that can be utilized for a fee. The basic functions are still available at no cost to the user, so that Wakerupper can remain just as appealing as it did when it was first introduced to the world.
Most scheduling or reminder services online work through email, an online calendar, or text messages. Wakerupper offers numerous features, but its basic function actually calls phones and can send a 100 character message the user enters when setting up the reminder. This helps ensure that the message is received, because it is harder to ignore when answering the phone rather than reading a text message or checking email. The user sets up the reminder or wake up call, enters the message if desired, then lets Wakerupper do the rest.
Wakerupper boasts a simple telephone reminder functionality, and the website design matches that simplicity. The homepage features a lot of white space without any clutter. Text is primarily black, while the logo features a hint of color. The site looks professional, but is very easy to navigate and read. Wakerupper gets right to the point so the user can focus on making their reminders rather than trying to find the tools they need while on the website.
A visitor that would like to register for Wakerupper can click the black “Create account” link at the top right hand corner of the homepage. Doing so will take the user to the registration form. A username, password, phone number, email address, time zone, and security code must be entered to complete registration. After clicking the “I accept. Create my account.” button at the bottom of the page, the user is taken to a highlighted message that asks the user to check their email to finish account verification.
Some features on Wakerupper are premium and require a fee, while others remain free. Users that place a call from the Wakerupper homepage can do so at no cost. Premium service costs about 5 cents per minute. Premium pricing is also applied to Wakerupper mobile services. Users can purchase credit to use on these premium features. How much is spent really depends on how much credit the user buys and consumes.
Anyone that has a busy schedules and needs a solid reminder system can appreciate Wakerupper’s features. A phone call can often be a better warning than other text based reminder services. The user must actually answer the call and will audibly hear the message. Users on a tight budget may not want to pay for Wakerupper premium features, but there are still free services that can appeal to anyone.
