Nightstand Central Free - Alarm Clock with Weather and Photo Wallpapers

By Thomas Huntington

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Note: This is an old version. You're probably looking for Nightstand Central v4.x. It has a blue icon with a centered moon.

Featured by CNN, Business Insider,, and many other publications. The free version of an Apple Staff Favorite!

Nightstand Central Free turns your iPhone or iPod touch into a high quality alarm clock with current weather information and customizable wallpaper. It also supports iOS 4 background alarms. You get many of the great features of Nightstand Central, but for free.

Customer Reviews saver!

Your iPhone just isn't complete without this app. It's a life saver & really versatile. But I think the screen dimmer is the best. Totally saves my eyeballs from the glaring light of the screen in the middle of the night (& gives me quiet hours when I want it)! It's a must have.

Nightstand Central

I have had this app for quite a while. All of a sudden the alarm with music didn't work anymore. I had paid for the full app and the creator decided to update the app so that music and other features now cost extra. To me, this is extortion. I had the app and I was happy with it. Now I had to pay extra to get the music function to work!

So far so good.

Does what it says and works as it should.

I'll update after a few days of use with a deeper review but for now this will do.
