Why no clock apps for the iPad? - iPad Discussions on AppleInsider Forums Toggle navigation All Forums Recent Posts Sign In Why no clock apps for the iPad? 26n80w Posted: April 12, 2010 12:55PM in iPad edited January 2014 Now that I have purchased the iPad, I would like to be able to use it as a bed side alarm clock. Are there any clock apps? I don't remember reading why this feature is missing. Comments Reply 1 of 3 mr. me Posts: 3,221member April 12, 2010 7:07PM What are you complaining about? There is a free alarm clock app for the iPad. There are also numerous clock apps available for the iPhone that should also work.

Not only is it simple and functional, on the iPhone and iPod, a set alarm works even when the app isn't running. AFAIK, none of the third-party clocks can do this since they don't have access to background processes.
