I know I’m not the only one that has tossed their dedicated alarm clock into the trash ever since the iPhone came out. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could plug your iPhone in, and your alarm clock app of preference automatically launched?

That’s the premise behind Plugged In, a jailbreak tweak that launches any app of your choice as soon as you plug it in. It’s obvious that Plugged In was designed with an alarm clock in mind, if not simply for the fact that I can’t think of much else that I would use it for…

Granted, the alarm clock setup would work best with a dedicated iPhone dock in landscape mode, but it still serves its purpose well without one.

Plugged In is even smart enough to unlock your iPhone before launching your app, that is if you have the passcode disabled. Personally, I’d never use a smartphone without a passcode, but that’s just me.

Plugged In can be downloaded via Cydia if you have a jailbroken iPhone, and it’ll set you back $1.99.

Do you think this tweak could make your life easier?

      Uh, game sound and alarm sound are different sound settings. The volume of the alarm sound is the same volume as your ringer volume.

    I loved this feature on my BlackBerry. Whenever I would dock my blackberry it would go into sleep mode, disable all radios, and automatically bring up the alarm clock. Unfortunately I can’t find this int he Cydia store?? Doesn’t come up in a search.

    Any ideas?

    Hey the whole world! I’m totally new and wanted to say hello

  • soccerkrzy

    The fact this app developer is charging $2 sickens me, this should be a free tweak.

    how is this different from using activator to launch your alarm app on plugging the phone in??
