What’s the first thing you do when you hear your alarm clock go off in the morning? If you’re like me, then after hitting the snooze button a couple of times, you look at your phone to see what time it is and if you missed any messages overnight.
But wouldn’t it be nice if you could get this kind of information without having to look at your phone? That way you could skip that part of your morning routine and go right to stretching, or whatever else you do. Well you can, with Wake Info… Read More

Each new year brings with it new hope, new resolutions, and if you’re one of the many that rely on their iPhone for their alarm clock, then it usually also brings with it a late start.
Owners of iOS devices have often found that the changing of the time to allow for daylight savings, or even a whole new year, can often result in missed alarms or alarms simply refusing to work at all. It’s one of the joys of iPhone ownership, and it’s a problem that keeps rearing its ugly head.
So here we are, two days into 2012, and it seems that the problem is manifesting itself all over again. According to Engadget, it appears to be affecting owners of devices running iOS 4.2.1 or lower only. Now on to the fix… Read More

I find myself using my iPhone’s Clock app, with its included timer and stopwatch, for all sorts of arbitrary reasons.
It’s a really handy thing to have, but it would even better if you didn’t have to launch the Clock app every time, just to access the time keeping functions.
Enter TimerBar, a jailbreak tweak that allows you to invoke your timer from anywhere by means of Activator. Full video walkthrough, inside… Read More

If there’s one thing I dislike about the iPhone’s alarm clock, it’s the inability to completely disable the alarm from the lock screen.
Sure, you can snooze it, but a few minutes later, there it goes blaring again.
With SnoozeOrStop, you can completely stop the alarm clock right from the convenience of your lock screen. Take a peek inside for the full video walkthrough… Read More

We’ve all been there: You’ve had a late night, but you still have to get up early in the morning. You set your iPhone’s alarm for the usual time to get up and go to work, and you’re greeted by your alarm in the early hours of the morning. You’ve got the option to snooze the alarm or turn it off. Which option do you choose?
MathAlarm is a new jailbreak tweak, by Ryan Petrich, that makes sure you’re actually awake in the morning. You have to solve a simple math equation before you can hit the Snooze or Deactivate button. Read More

We’ve talked about some pretty cool accessories for your iPhone here on iDB. We’ve mentioned everything from cases to portable battery chargers, and even one that did both.
While we’ve seen our fair share of iDevice attachments, we’ve yet to see anything quite like this. Tuaw points to an iPhone dock that uses a retro design in a contemporary world. What is it called? Read More

Is there still something wrong with your iPhone’s alarm? What about alarms you set in iCal?
Reports are still coming in that non-reoccurring alarms are malfunctioning for users suffering from the nefarious Daylight Savings Time glitch. The BBC reports that European users are still not being woken up on time by their iPhone’s alarm… Read More

Daylight Savings Time has stuck again! A bug that reportedly caused the iPhone’s internal clock to not adjust properly to Daylight Savings Time has resurfaced with the recent time change.
Two days ago, we told you about a glitch with the iPhone’s clock not changing to the correct time for the DST “spring forward” of one hour. At the time of the report, no one was really sure to what extent this clock glitch was affecting users.
Complaints seemed to not be as wide spread as the last time there was a DST issue, but many people were (and still are) experiencing problems with their alarm not going off at the right time…

The iPhone’s internal clock has been notorious for having glitches with Daylight Savings Time. This morning (2 A.M.) marked the Daylight Savings Time “spring forward” of one hour, and there have been numerous reports of the iPhone’s clock falling back an hour instead of falling forward.
Complaints starting streaming in via Twitter this morning from users who were not woken up properly by their iPhone’s alarm. While complaints vary, the general consensus seems to be that the iPhone’s clock fell back an hour at midnight instead of falling forward…

Now this is just getting down right embarrassing. CBS Sports is reporting that several members of the Los Angeles Lakers — including star center Pau Gasol — woke up late as a result of the iPhone’s infamous alarm clock bug.
Perhaps lack of sleep is a good excuse for the lack of effort we’ve seen from the Lake Show as of late. Needless to say, Steve Jobs can’t be happy about this.
Sure, it’s okay for normal people to oversleep, but when your state’s flagship basketball team begins to feel the impact, you’ve got some real issues….
