I'm an avid "iPhone as an alarm clock" kind of guy, so it's nice to see that there are some options out there besides the standard issue. One of the newest on the block is the Hip Clock. It does all the things a good alarm app should do, plus it looks pretty. There is a classic analogue interface (shown above) or a flip clock or digital clock version. My favorite feature? Shake it to turn on the flashlight. Brilliant. All it is missing is a nice wooden stand to go on. I'm thinking something like this one I saw at ICFF.
