Alarm Clock Pro does its best to emulate a traditional alarm clock while adding the advantages of the iPhone. The app opens to a customizable digital clock skin that tells the time, date and day of the week. From there you can access weather information and set up future alarms to your own audio. You can even access a flashlight from this app, which really shows off the advantage of using your phone as an alarm. Alarm Clock Pro was rated one of the top apps in the Utilities category for a reason, being probably the best alarm in the App Store makes this the app that you want to wake up to in the morning.

For those still on the fence of turning their iDevice into an alarm clock, this app may be the one to convince you. Nightstand Central takes full advantage of iOS by using a gorgeous skin much like HTC Sense, and packing in features that iOS users would expect to find in an app like this. Aside from traditional functionality, Nightstand Central can do things like play music, podcasts or audiobooks for a set time before falling asleep and even alert you on days that you forget to set the alarm. Another point to note is that this app, unlike many alarm clocks, can completely function in the background, or when your device is asleep. Overall, when looking at the feature set of Nightstand Central and how well it performs, it would be an excellent choice as a replacement for your regular alarm clock.

To put it simply, Alarm Clock 4 Free is very similar to Alarm Clock Pro, except that it holds the price tag of free.
Absalt Easy Wakeup Pro is probably the farthest thing from the other apps here. To start, you must put your device on your bed and set a time period in which to be awoken in. The app will then proceed to find the time that you are in your lightest sleep using the devices accelerometer and ring the alarm at that time. You then can rate how your mood was when you woke up, to help the app wake you in the future. After a few days Absalt will even begin to collect data that can tell you a lot about your sleep cycles. Many skeptics believe that an app like this will not work, however, I highly recommend you give it a try one night and see if it fits into your life. This app is notable but not essential because not everyone will have a need for this kind of functionality.
Night Stand HD is a nice Universal app that has standard alarm clock features, such as music and weather integration. In addition to that functionality, this app comes with a built in stopwatch and timer. However, even with all of these functions, Night Stand HD has some issues such as not ringing the alarm at times, making this an alarm that may not be trustworthy.

Alarm Clock Rebel has the potential to be the best alarm clock in the App Store with features such as a built in RSS reader to wake up to and sounds to help you fall asleep. However, it has one fatal flaw that puts it below the rest, in order to make the alarm ring, you must keep your device on all night. This huge oversight makes this app one that I just cannot recommend at the present time.
