    Just received i4s from VZW. Looking for clock app that behaves like BB bedside.

    - Intgrated with native clock. Only want to set alarms once.
    - Turn on/off when phone is plugged in for charging.
    - Digital display.

    Tried several from the app store but none are very good.

    So far I am not impressed at all with the iPhone. All the bragging about apps for this and apps for that isn't true.

    Maybe do research on such a significant purchase next time before you blindly buy based on what you hear. Make sure the device is right for you and has the functionality you desire. Just my 2 cents.

    Very simple thing to do with jailbreak. (Now i realize jailbreaking iOs5 isn't quite doable just yet, but have patience.) Use activator to start the app of your choice when charging.
    Since I came from a bb too, this was one of the first things I tried to figure out how to get done.

    theres over 400 thosuand applications on the app store just because you cant find one that does something exactly like a blackberry doesnt mean that there isnt a app for that and a app for this.

    There ARE alarm apps with similar functionality to the bedside mode. Just search through the app store and you will find one. Just set an alarm within the app, and change its settings so it wont let the screen time out. (Within the app itself) I know there is an application with this functionality. I've used it, I just can't recall the exact name.

    If you find it let me know too. Only thing I miss from BB is the clock being displayed while in the charger

    Alarm Clock Pro?

    it has a digital display, and can be dimmed so the brightness doesn't bother your sleep. and it prevents itself from locking the screen so you will hear the alarm. it supports multiple alarms...and you only have to set it once.

    You can set recurring alarms on the native clock. Once that is done, you obviously don't need to set it again. Why would you want another clock app to do this? Do you frequently set up recurring alarms?

    - Turn on/off when phone is plugged in for charging.
    - Digital display.
    There must be dozens of apps that do this. I personally never understood why anyone would want their iPhone's screen to remain lit throughout the night to act as a clock, but...different strokes.

    So far I am not impressed at all with the iPhone. All the bragging about apps for this and apps for that isn't true.
    Seriously? A clock app that mimics exactly what a BB does is that important to you? "There's an app for that." is an advertising slogan. It is not meant to be true in a literal sense. Think about what that would mean if literally every function anyone could think of needed to be made into an app.

    Tried several from the app store but none are very good.
    So it sounds like you found an app, but it just didn't meet your standards?

    I think Verizon gives you 14 days to return the iPhone 4S if you're not happy with it or you discover it doesn't offer functions that are most important to you. Did you know that the 4S doesn't support Flash video? It also doesn't have BBM or Google Maps text-to-speech navigation. It offers a lot, but it doesn't offer everything. No phone does.

    So sell it and go back to your blackberry...nobody is twisting your arm to use the iPhone, and if it doesn't function how you want it to, why use it? I sure wouldn't use a phone that didn't do what i needed it to (cough, cough BB).

    Alarm clock pro looks like a great app. Lots of positive reviews. Going to try the free version. What is the advantage of the paid version?

    i've used nightstand on my ipad....but very much prefer alarm clock pro to it because its more basic. the screen having more of a minimalistic display helps me get to sleep much easier. i haven't really tried nightstand's alarm features though....but i CAN tell you i have never slept through an alarm with alarm clock pro.

    I've been using nightstand for a few months now and really like it. It has a ton of features and settings and allows for a real customized experience.

    yes. just swipe up or down on the screen to adjust the brightness. i usually dim the iphone completely [in settings] before launching the app overnight.

    I think another big benefit of the Bedside mode, on the BB, is the ability to turn off alerts when its plugged in. The only thing that sounds is the alarm, and the phone if you want.

    I last two months, with the 4s, have been simply amazing. There will always be at least one feature that people hope for, no matter what side of the fence your on.

    Another vote for Alarm Clock Pro. I use it every night and it works great. It is able to get very dim.

    yes. just swipe up or down on the screen to adjust the brightness. i usually dim the iphone completely [in settings] before launching the app overnight.
    Isn't swiping down in the app easier than going into the settings?
