WhatsTheDate brings a smarter timer display to your iPhone’s Lock Screen

One of the things I like about iOS is how it displays any active timer on the Lock Screen, just below the time. But as much as I like having this subtle reminder when I pick up my iPhone, the implementation is somewhat imperfect. For example, it often gets in the way of viewing the Lock Screen’s native date display, which is something I find equally as useful when glancing at that particular interface.

If you’re in the same boat, then WhatsTheDate by iOS developer iCraze is a newly released and free jailbreak tweak that you won’t want to miss. It effectively solves the aforementioned problem by forcing the Lock Screen’s timer display to disappear after a few seconds, instead transitioning to the current date thereafter.

DualClock adds a secondary timezone clock to your iPhone’s Lock screen

If you live right on the border of two different time zones, or you’re close friends with someone who lives in a timezone different than yours, then you may want to stay mindful about the variances in time across several regions as not to come off as disturbing to someone else when you send a text or place a phone call.

Apple’s native Clock app is an excellent resource for checking the time in other time zones, but if you’ve ever wished you could tell the time in another location at a glance without having to launch an app, then you’ll probably come to appreciate the likes of a newly released jailbreak tweak dubbed DualClock by iOS developer exodia9610.

This tweak lets you delete all iPhone alarms in one fell swoop

Whether you use alarm clocks to wake up every morning for work or you casually use them to wake up for special events that occur every so often, you might find yourself in a situation where alarm times change or you no longer need an alarm you’ve used previously.

If you use your iPhone as an alarm clock and find yourself in either of the two scenarios described above, then you might enjoy a newly released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed Delete All Alarms by iOS developer 0xkuj. Just as the name implies, this tweak lets you delete all your Clock app’s alarms in one fell swoop as opposed to deleting them one-by-one as Apple currently compels you to.

Clockator adds haptic feedback to the iPhone’s Clock app

If you’re anything like me, then you like haptic feedback on your iPhone and wish Apple would implement it more broadly across the mobile operating system. While this could certainly happen in the near future as Apple ponders about how it can make iOS better, jailbreakers won’t need to wait thanks to the plethora of readily available jailbreak tweaks that can already bring haptic feedback to miscellaneous interfaces in iOS.

Clockator is a newly released and free extension by iOS developer CydiaGeek that fits this niche subset of add-ons, and as its name suggests, Clockator introduces haptic feedback to Apple’s native Clock app in various ways.

Pylarm makes you solve math problems to dismiss your iPhone’s alarm

Lots of people use their iPhone’s built-in alarm function to help them wake up in time for class or work each morning, but some people still have trouble getting up because it’s too easy to dismiss the alarm when it goes off.

If you’re in the same boat and need a little bit of extra motivation to wake up each morning, then you might want to try a new free jailbreak tweak called Pylarm by iOS developer R0wDrunner. This add-on forces users to solve math problems before the iPhone’s alarm can be dismissed.

Sleeper augments your iPhone’s native alarm interface with much-needed features

The alarm feature found in your iPhone’s native Clock app is particularly useful when you need to wake up at a specific time every morning, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to say that Apple could make iOS’ alarm interface a bit more intuitive.

iOS developer Joshua Seltzer recognized some of the inadequacies that are present in the iPhone’s native alarm interface, and to help combat those shortcomings, has just released a new jailbreak tweak called Sleeper in Cydia.

SnoozeX provides a more intuitive firing alarm interface for iOS

Whenever one of your iPhone’s alarm fires, you’re presented with an interface where you can either snooze or stop the alarm indefinitely. Many have expressed their dissatisfaction with iOS’ native alarm firing interface, and with that in mind, iOS developer VincentMDIM came out with a jailbreak tweak called SnoozeX to address that.

SnoozeX makes the iOS’ alarm firing interface more intuitive, especially for those who have trouble waking up early in the morning after their alarm goes off. As depicted by the screenshot examples above, SnoozeX makes the alarm firing interface easier to interact with, which will be appreciated by folks who are still half asleep when the alarm sounds.

AlarmFade makes waking up to morning alarms on your iPhone more pleasant

Many people rely on their iPhone’s alarm to get up every morning, and while it’s evident that Apple spent a lot of time polishing the alarm interface, there are certainly a few ways that it could be improved.

With that in mind, it should come as no surprise to anyone that iOS developer Nils Kirchhof has released a new free jailbreak tweak called AlarmFade with the intention of making a few improvements to the iPhone’s alarm experience. But does it? – Let’s find out.

AlarmGroups brings a popular grouped alarm concept for iOS to life

Many people use the alarm feature in their iPhone’s Clock app to wake up on time for school or work every morning, but sometimes users will hit the stop button and inadvertently fall back asleep, defeating the purpose of setting the alarm in the first place.

You could create a cascade of alarms to prevent this from being a problem, or you could use a new free jailbreak tweak called AlarmGroups by iOS developer Fouad Raheb, which streamlines the process of generating and grouping multiple alarms to ensure you wake up every morning.
