Do you use an alarm on your iOS device to get you up on the morning? How about giving your device something to say every time you snooze or dismiss an alarm in the morning?
A new free jailbreak tweak called Awake Speech
by iOS developer merdok
will do this for you. From the tweak’s preferences, you’ll be able to configure what the device will say, how many times they’ll say it, and in what language code:
The user types in the spoken text that they want to hear when they snooze or dismiss an alarm, and when the user snoozes or dismisses an alarm, the device will speak what they typed in. It uses Siri’s voice, but note that you don’t have to have Siri on your device to use this tweak.
This tweak actually leaves a lot of wiggle room for creativity for the user. It can be used for humorous purposes, or for just having a pleasant phone say pleasant things in the morning. For example, you can have the phone say “Wake Up, Wake Up, Wake Up!” ten times in a row, or you can just make the phone be nice about it, and say something like, “Good morning [insert user’s name here].”
Awake Speech can also be useful for reminders. Your stock Reminders application isn't going to speak out to you, so you can set an alarm for a certain time, and then have the device say something out loud like, "Don't forget to go grocery shopping!"
Overall, this tweak is pretty interesting. We also like that it's free. It works on any iOS device running iOS 5 or later. If you want it, it's free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository!
