iPhone Alarm Clock apps that won’t let you down

There was some amount of consternation at the weekend when many people experienced problems with the alarm clock function on their iPhones, a problem which Apple says will be sorted from today. However if you’ve lost confidence in your iPhone alarm you may be interested in some other free apps with alarm functions.

Charlie White over on Mashable has put together a really useful article containing 5 suggestions for free iPhone alarm apps which don’t appear to have the same problem as the iPhone alarm app itself seems to be having. Each one was tested and the article notes that the Apple iPhone alarm app was still not working at the time of the article whereas these ones were working.

One of the apps is Nightstand Central Free which features a flip clock and weather reports just beneath the time display. The alarm still functions when your iPhone is sleeping or the screen is locked although there is only a choice of 4 different alarm sounds. However it’s important to remember that this is a free app and it works! Another app is Clock Pro Free which is ad-supported and offers a choice of digital faces or more traditional analog faces. It also gives details of your longitude and latitude along with sunrise and sunset information.

For the other apps go to the full article at mashable.com. According to Samyuktha Krishnappa over on the International Business Times, the Apple statement about the iPhone alarm problem read, “We’re aware of an issue related to non-repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2. Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3,” and also goes into more details about how this problem affected people.
