    The old one is better than the new one for the intended purpose.

    The new one doesn't look like it has anything to do with what the app does, so you should keep the old one.

    The new one is an angry alarm, i.e. an alarm that will give you a "Hard Awakening"... :D

    Oh so he's giving you a hard awakening? An angry monster? You should let people pick pictures of their wives for that kind of thing. :D

    She'll require 50% of your profits.
    I'm her manager.
    I'll take 10%.

    Oh, and 50% in the event you use that mouse icon for a mouse related app.

    But UnDe is not my manager, I have one and he is welcome to the profits.

    I’ve never heard of your app before, so I didn’t know what it was. I voted for the new icon because it’s what tipped me off as to what your app does (because I could tell it was an angry alarm clock).

    I think in a side-by-side, the first one works better based on the app name.

    However, I like the look of the second one better and think with some tweaking would work better (which is why I voted for new).

    If you made it look slightly more like an alarm clock, maybe gave it some arms/hands on its face, slightly smaller and/or raised bells (ears) it would paint a little better and bolder picture of an angry alarm clock, symbolizing a rude awakening.

    Just my 2¢!

    +1. I didn't even notice it was supposed to be an alarm clock guy, until others mentioned it. However, I miss a lot of things others see, so maybe it's just me. :)
