Safe Alarm 3: Adds Cool Features to your iPhone alarm

Waking up early for going work,school requires setting up an alarm on your iPhone. Many jailbreak tweaks comes out to improve the performance of the iPhone alarm. Safe Alarm 3 by Douglas Soares is a noteworthy release in Cydia that expands upon the alarm system in iOS by giving you a trough of new options to configure, including new ways to be woken up.

Smart Alarm has been changing the way jailbreakers customize their alarms for over two years, but it gets better with each release. This tweak includes per-alarm settings that you can apply to individual alarms, or all-inclusive alarm settings that you can apply to all alarms as a whole.

A better way to create alarms

After installation, a new set of options are tacked onto the usual at the bottom of the alarm creation interface. These are the per-alarm settings we mentioned earlier:

 Other features the tweak can do:
  • Choose the individual days of the week that the alarm goes off
  • Use alert tones and playlists for alarms in addition to ringtones and songs
  • Choose a custom snooze duration
  • Choose a custom volume level for the alarm
  • Choose a fade-in duration for the alarm
  • Vibrate on both ring and silent
  • Choose when the alarm gets automatically dismissed
  • Configure a calculator so you’re forced to solve math to dismiss the alarm
Forcing yourself to solve a math problem is also great, because it ensures you’re actually awake at the time you acknowledge the alarm. In addition, being able to choose a custom snooze duration is something users have been asking Apple to implement for ages, and since they haven’t answered the requests, Smart Alarm 3 does!

Besides the per-alarm options, you’ll find a bevy more options in the Safe Alarm 3 preferences pane in the Settings app:

Here, you are going to find options for:
  • What happens when you press the sleep button during an alarm
  • What happens when you press a volume button during an alarm
  • What happens when you press the Home button during an alarm
  • Disable automatic locking when an alarm is going off
  • Configure the screen to flash colors when the alarm is going off
  • Switch between light and dark mode in the Clock app
  • Enable tapping on alarms to edit them instead of the usual convoluted process
  • Allow mass-editing of alarms at one time
  • Enable a button to toggle all alarms on or off at once
  • Open the Alarms tab of the Clock app from Control Center’s shortcut
  • And configure various other general settings…
With these options, you’ll find some incredible new ways to interact with your alarm. Being able to choose what each button on the device does during an alarm execution is critical for those who like using certain buttons more than others, and the ability to make the screen flash colors as an alarm goes off can be an essential part of the wake-up process for those hard at hearing.

 A tweak worthy of praise, Safe Alarm 3 is available for $1.99 in Cydia’s BigBoss repository and can be had for a discounted price of $0.99 if you own any previous versions already. The tweak is intended for iOS 10 devices, so if you’re jailbroken on iOS 9, you may want to check out Safe Alarm (iOS 9) instead.
