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.

Easily one of the best looking and elegant alarm or desk clocks in the App Store, Nightstand Central combines all the functionality that you need in an alarm clock into one intuitive app (and it works on both the iPhone and the iPod touch). It's also the perfect use for an older iPhone or iPod touch that doesn't see as much use as it used to.


Be sure to check out the full version of Nightstand Central for even more features, such as:

-Music Alarms

-Sleep Timer (fall asleep to your favorite tunes, podcasts, audio books, or relaxing sounds, and let Nightstand Central automatically shut of the sound once you've fallen asleep)

-Built in Flashlight (just shake on and off)

-Customize the wallpaper your own photos

-No advertisements (the free version has occasional ads which can be dismissed by the user)

-Automatically cycle through your favorite selection of wallpaper, whether it's 100 photos or 5 photos. Photos will change however often you'd like

-Change the size and position of the clock / weather interface

I have this on my other iPod it's great I'm so glad that it's an older version so I could get it on my other iPod. My other iPod is iOS4 (2ng gen) which is really old but glad I moved up to 6th gen iPod touch😄this app is great I recommend to anyone any age.

Different name...same problems


This is the broke app Nightstand with a different name. I guess instead of fixing all the problems the old one had with terrible reviews they just renamed it and left all the problems with it.

Huh? Creator of app please review!


If your conscience about wasting energy like me you wont like the app as an alarm. I was hopeful about the app so i decided to get the free version, see how it works, and if i like it get the paid version which has more features useful for me. When i downloaded the free version turns out you have to keep your phone on all night for the alarm to work, which means you have to plug in your phone all night too. Especially in this economy i like to keep my energy bill to a minimum, this app does the opposite. If you turn the alarm on but the phone off the alarm will not work, u might here a few sounds for 3 seconds but that is about it. If u have both alarm and phone on then you wake up to a battery drained phone, not good before going to work. So essentially if you like a nice wallpaper background with weather info and the current time download the free app, if you want a nice alarm seek somewhere else because this isn't the right app for you. Until they change this feature on both the free and paid app i will not upgrade, it's not worth it. And because of this reason don't purchase the paid app, not until this issue has been resolved.
