Recently, in a previous post, I talked about how I had been looking around for a good alarm clock app. I hated, and still do, those standard, cheap alarm clocks you can buy at the store. That’s when I decided to take a trip to the App Store and search for an iPhone alarm clock app that I could use.
In the process, I realized that there are literally over 100 alarm clock apps available, ranging from really good ones to ones that I left asking myself, “How in the world did Apple even let these guys in?” As I searched high and low for the right app that fit my needs, I found that there are a good group of apps that I liked, and, I thought I would share them with you.

The iPhone’s Clock app is a great tool for quickly timing things like cooking an egg, chess turns, or steeping tea.

Find out if Cosmos Timer can make keeping time easier after the jump!
Have you noticed that your iPad seems to have a few missing apps? For no apparent reason, the iPhone’s default offering is a bit more robust than that of the iPad.
Today we’ll seek to right this wrong by briefly looking at a few apps that you can use to fill the void on your iPad’s home screen. And since you should’ve gotten these apps free with your iPad anyway, we’ll make sure the replacements are free as well!
I’m not an insomniac. Not really. I just picked up an unfortunate habit in college of not getting to sleep until 3am, and I haven’t quite managed to get rid of it yet. Partly as a result, I’ve been wishing vaguely for a FitBit for some time now. $100 is a bit much to spend just to feel guilty for not exercising enough, though, so I haven’t acquired one yet.
Then a friend told me about Sleep Cycle, an app that claims to track your sleep patterns and wake you at the optimum moment in your sleep cycle, resulting in a more natural and restful awakening. At $.99, testing it was a no-brainer. Here’s what I found.
