Snooze or Stop Alarm on Lock Screen with SnoozeOrStop
Sometime in your life, no matter what the case, you will need to use an alarm. However unfortunately like movies and commercials, throwing our alarm clock or device against the wall is not the best option to snooze or stop. Especially, in this case, if it is your iDevice. Unless you happen to wake up and start fooling around on your device before your alarm goes off, your device will be at the lock screen. A new tweak in Cydia, SnoozeOrStop, adds a snooze and stop button for your alarm directly on the lock screen.
It's rather simple really - when the alarm goes off, an alert pops up on the screen and you have two options: snooze or stop the alarm. Although the tweak did not specify how long the snooze period was, it is assumed that it is the same native five minute snooze feature. And then if you choose stop, then the alarm will stop all together. There are no settings to configure in Settings and it works just as it says.
Give it a shot if this is something that you would find useful. It's free on Cydia now and should work on all devices and firmwares (with the exception of the iOS 5 beta).

I like it because I don't have a passcode on my phone and it's just one less button to press (power)

Quick Dismiss does virtually the same thing without the popup. Alarm goes off (or any alert) and a simple press of the Home button kills it. Free. Reliable. On Cydia.

Some people prefer just tapping on the screen when an alarm goes off or an alert shows up.

You just slide to unlock even with a passcode and it turns off the alarm

I always hit the Snooze button in my iPhone alarm several times in the morning. I could definitely see me accidentally hitting the Stop button instead and then oversleeping. I prefer to slide to stop the alarm when I actually do get out of bed.
So this one is a no-go for me.
