Top 8 | Alarm Clock Apps for iPhone

If you’re the kind of iPhone user that, like me, relies on their smartphone to wake them up every morning, then it’s likely you’re quite familiar with the uses and of course the limitations of Apple’s own built in alarm clock function. The alarm clock on the iPhone is good enough for most people who simply want something to wake them up each morning, but what if you were to look at some of the third party alarm clock apps currently available on the iPhone? These can vary in quality, but generally bring more to the table than Apple’s default app. In many cases, they redefine the idea of the alarm clock app, as is the case with Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock which places as a lot more emphasis on waking up healthily in the morning rather than simply just waking up on time. This particular app monitors your movements throughout the night and then wakes you up when you’re ready, simply by looking at a small alarm window and picking the best moment to sound the alarm. Neat, huh? We take a look at some other third party alarm clock apps for the iPhone:

8. SpinMe Alarm Clock ($1.99)
