I thought I was the only weirdo who sets seven or eight different alarms staggered out by a few minutes. I do this because I have a fear of waking up late and missing important appointments. With Clone Alarm, a recently released jailbreak tweak, setting multiple alarms just got a whole lot easier.

Clone Alarm isn’t a standalone app. Instead, it’s a tweak that integrates directly with the stock Clock app’s alarm clock tab. Simply tap and hold on any existing alarm to bring up the Clone Alarm interface.

From the tweak’s interface, you can select the amount of additional alarm clock copies you wish to create, the time difference between each new alarm in relation to the original alarm time, and the time measure, either minutes or hours. The hours option doesn’t work that well, as seen in the video above, and ultimately doesn’t make a lot of sense for this concept. It could have easily been omitted to simply Clone Alarm’s interface. Once you’ve settled on your settings, simply tap the Clone button in the upper right-hand corner and you’ll immediately see all of the cloned alarm clocks appear.

There is a preference panel in the stock Settings app for Clone alarm, but all it is is a kill-switch to disable the tweak. With the tweak disabled, any existing cloned alarms remain, but tapping and holding on an alarm to invoke the Clone Alarm interface yields nothing.

Clone Alarm

Clone Alarm is a smart jailbreak tweak that’s well thought out and executed. It takes a real world problem, and provides and easy to use and convenient solution. If you’d like to try it, you’ll need to pay $0.99 (BigBoss) for the privilege.

What do you think about Clone Alarm?

    Very useful for me, I set alarms like, 5:55AM 6:00AM 6:15AM, so when I stop the alarm and sleep again, there would be another alarm waiting for me haha

    Could this be a feature in one alarm to be repeated X times every X minutes

  • Robert Goldberg

    Sleep Cycle app is a much better way to go. Works perfectly every time. Smart snooze with the ability to dismiss with just a touch/tap on the phone until the very last one is my favorite feature. Music is great, got a ton of other features, including hue bulb control, etc. Highly recommended.

      Can vouch, I have been using Sleep Cycle for years now, and it has never once failed to wake me up in the early mornings.

      And by the way, there is a new feature now were you can snooze by just hitting anywhere on your bed! so awesome.

      The problem is that it’s not good to leave your iPhone CHARGING on your bed, due to high electromagnetic field.

    same here. I set alarms in 5 minute differences. Just get that paranoid feeling the first or second one I set wont go off or I wont hear it.

      It’s better to set alarm latest time than every 5 minutes. It ruins your sleep, and is harder to wake up by setting every 5 minutes. Or even snoozing.
