This morning i found out how much UI/UX is important. Who the hell put "snooze" button beside "stop alarm" button?

    You are not the only one finding it awful. Especially when activating those buttons with closed eyes can lead this unpredictable results.

    Unpredictable? It's an easy algorithm: On event, pick one side randomly.

    In a finite amount of time you have a predictable result: alarm is disabled and you oversleep.

    At least that's what always happens to me...

    This is why you need two alarm clocks, one requiring you to get out of bed to turn it off !

    Of course, it needs to be one of those special ones that doesn't turn itself off after 2 minutes..

    I wired one up once where the off button was in the toilet downstairs !

    It's like on mobile phones:

    Answer/Reject.

    Damn it, I meant to answer that !

    And no clear indication which is which in some cases !

    But both buttons look the same !

    Years ago, designers used to hop into forums and ask folk about these kind of things, and we'd helpfully tell them.

    Why do they not do that nowadays ?

    @Nanos And all left-right accept-decline options are often ususable with how big smartphones are.
    My left-handed friend complained about this a lot because design makes it harder to choose the more desirable option (put conveniently for right-handed somewhere near right)... :/

    I'm so looking forward to folk here testing my software and pointing out things like that which would need fixing.

    @Nanos there is some android app, sleep as android i think, it asks you math problems or requires to scan some QR code to turn it off...

    i put QR code next to a mirror in bathroom, but it was driving me nuts
