    Hello,
    I think, it would be nice, to be woken up by your favorite song! On the older iPods, you could set a Mp3 Alarm, but on the iPod Touch, you only can hear strange system noises

    I use my iPod Touch in a Craddle, and on this Cradde, I connected speakers. But I cant set an Mp3 to hear it, when I wake up!


    I am sad to say, that I cant progam. You see, my english is very basically, too ..

    Maybe someone be in the mood for program an Mp3 Alarm Clock!

    I could design a Layout and make an icon for the Mp3 - Alarm Clock

    problem with that is that an Ipod Touch doesnt have a speaker on it, so unless it was plugged into one an MP3 alarm wouldnt work but with speakers it would be an awesome idea

    I think this has been requested quite alot, and i might be wrong in saying this but i think there is a way to have the alarm play songs but it requires SSHing and replacing files.

    I agree that a proper app would be alot better.

    This has been done before I believe. The only downside was that it was done (Not internal) but the MP3 song played but at the same time with the set clock alarm sound (The beeping).

    It's a simple code. You set the code so the strings from the clock on the springboard are in the app. Thats the easy part. Now you have to edit the alarm code on the iPod so the chimes/beeps don't play. You'd have to make a blank beep that repeats itself, so you don't hear anything. Then you make an MP3/WAV or whatever play when the blank beep is turned on/activated. Simple.

    IT CAN BE DONE! using mobiletimer.app

    ok choose a song, convert it to aif file


    so go into prefernces on itunes, advanced, importing using aiff encoder. convert a song then rename the following song to Alarm1-Alarm5



    then ssh into /library/alarms and import the following file into there

    The file should be named as Alarm1.aif/Alarm2.aif/Alarm3.aif/Alarm4.aif/Alarm5.aif
    if u want to back the original up

    then go into clock.app, and test the sounds using headphones, for the alarm to work, use some speakers
