I was going to try getting used using my iPod as an alarm the other day and I noticed that the alarm doesn't allow for music to be played, like older iPod's allow. But instead, those dumb little blips and bleeps are all that you have to choose from. What I would like to see is a Alarm App that uses the song(s) of your choice for an alarm and that has options like, Fade in, looping, and choice for which date it will go off on if necessary. Also, those dumb little blips and bleeps weren't dumb at all. Why not use the piezoelectric speaker, which is obviously present, to produce; let's say, NES sound? Or for example, the thought about Tamagotchi port? Why hasn't anyone exploited this yet, or looked into it? It it possible? Just my thoughts on a few things. What do you folks think? EDIT: The sound files for the alarms are .aif format and are located under/root/Library/Alarms/ They are 16-bit (little endian), Mono, 44.100kHz and I tried putting my own in It didn't work because it's aiff and I can only get files to convert to aifc. I don't have the option to convert to little endian, just Big however, I'll leave this up to some of you who deal with sound editing a little better that I do. Hope this helps!
