ActiveAlarm is a brand new jailbreak tweak that can be handy for those of you relying on your iPhone as an alarm clock. It’s a tweak that allows you to assign an Activator gesture of your choice to the stock Clock app.

While it’s true that Activator already contains an action for launching the stock Clock app, ActiveAlarm takes it one step further. ActiveAlarm will take users directly to the alarm clock section of the stock Clock app upon using the Activator gesture. Have a look at our video walkthrough inside as we show you how it works.

As you can tell from the video walkthrough, ActiveAlarm is a super-simple jailbreak tweak. It features no options to configure, but you will have to go into Activator’s preferences to assign a gesture to ActiveAlarm.


As stated, ActiveAlarm is simple, and is thus not life changing. But if you’re someone who heavily relies on the stock Clock app’s alarm feature, it may be a tweak that’s well worth your…time.

ActiveAlarm is developed by Julian Weiss and can be downloaded free of charge from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Be sure to share your thoughts about the tweak down below in the comments.

    The tweak FlipControlCenter (aside from its main purpose) makes you iPhone remember the last used “section” of the clock app. So whatever section you were in when closing the clock app, the next time you open it, it will automatically open to that same section. This is true whether tapping the home screen icon, opening via activator, or whatever means possible to open the clock app.

    This tweak was actually quite useful to me. I’m currently using FlipControlCenter and QuickActivator. In QuickActivator you can give any button in Control Center a tap action and a tap-and-hold action. So the Timer button is now a tap for timer, and a tap-and-hold for alarms. Kinda neat! 🙂
