Some iPhone clocks/alarms I have and how and when they work

With all the issues going on with built in iPhone clock and alarm, I thought I'd mention how some of the clocks I have function.

1) A cool looking clock is Flip Time. [itunes.apple.com]


Unfortunately, if the clock is in the background, the alarm doesn't go off. It does work if the phone is asleep or locked and it does allow you to pick a song from your iPod to wake you up, though.

2) Nightstand [itunes.apple.com]


Among other things, Nighstand shows the weather, can be dimmed, shaken to be used as a flashlight and will randomly play selected songs from your collection as an alarm.

Unfortunately, for the alarm to work with your music, Nightstand must be in foreground, but, if you choose the "background alarms" preference, seen below,

Nightstand's alarm function will work, even if another app is in the foreground, actively running. Unfortunately, background alarm only allows you to pick from four sounds.

3. Rise Alarm [itunes.apple.com] has a retro look and its alarm works whether the app is running in the foreground or even running at all. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the ability to play tunes from your iPod.

Or the iHome dock, which has its own alarm functions. And didn't get hosed up.. it woke me up just fine this morning. Of course, the conveniently located Snooze button was smacked repeatedly, and the complaints from the Chihuahua who did not want to get out from under the warm blanket meant I just HAD to go back to bed.

So I overslept. It was the dog's fault.

I love clock apps.

I really like clocks 1 and 3.

There may be a paid version of Nightstand that works in the background. I've used the free version. I'm not wild about it.

A clock rotation app that give me different clock options ala Desktop for desktop pics would make me way happy.
