When your alarm goes off in the morning by way of your Clock application in iOS, you have the option to turn off the alarm completely, or snooze it. Snooze gives you just a few more minutes to lay there in bed and come to the realization that it's actually time to get up.
Unfortunately, the iOS alarm snooze time is not configurable out of the box – it will always default to 9 minutes. You'll need a new jailbreak tweak called Snooze
by iOS developer Juian Weiss to configure a manual snooze time that will take effect when you hit that snooze button after your alarm sounds.
When you install the tweak, and you head over to the Clock application to create a new alarm by tapping on the "+" button, you will notice a new option that wasn't there before called "Snooze Time," as shown below:
When you tap on that option, you can input whatever manual snooze time that you want. The number that you input will be saved in minutes, and you can put in whole numbers, or decimal numbers to indicate whole minutes, or seconds:
After you have configured a manual snooze time, that snooze time will take effect with the alarm the next time it goes off. In our case, we set the alarm snooze time to 30 minutes, so that means when the alarm goes off tomorrow morning, and we snooze the alarm, the alarm won't go off for another 30 minutes, giving us an extra half hour to sleep in.
Snooze supports iOS 7, and iOS 6 support is coming soon in the future. It's worth mentioning that the tweak only works in the stock iOS Clock application, and that the tweak is open source, so you can view the source code on Github at this link
. Apart from the new option in the Clock application, there are no other options to configure. If you would like to give Snooze a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now for just 99¢.
