Those of you looking to enhance the iOS alarm experience may want to check out a new jailbreak tweak called AlarmDisplay Pro by iOS developer GSquared. AlarmDisplay Pro does two major things:
- Display a customized badge on the Clock application for showing alarm information
- Create an alarm from anywhere using Activator
Taking a look at the Clock application badge feature, as shown above, the tweak gives the user the ability to customize the Clock application so that it shows a badge depending on how the user prefers to see the alarm information. Users get to choose between having the badge show the total amount of alarms, the amount of active alarms, the time of the next alarm (either in 12 or 24-hour format), or not having a badge at all. All of these options are configured from the Settings application under the AlarmDisplay Pro preferences pane:
In addition, users can select an Activator action that can be used to set an alarm from anywhere. When the user invokes the Activator action that they choose, they will get the following interface, allowing them to set an alarm:
The user can use the rolling selector to find the time that they want to set an alarm for, and tapping on the sound button at the bottom lets the user choose an alarm tone that they want the iOS device to sound when the alarm needs to go off.
AlarmDisplay Pro is currently on sale for an introductory price of 99¢ and it's compatible with any iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad running iOS 6. You'll find it in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now!
