The iMom Project, Day Three

Updated December 3rd, 2015.

Here we go. Day Three.

The iPhone clock app. So simple. Yet, so fabulous. I use the clock every day and so should you. Here are some ideas for you:

  1. Use it as an alarm clock. It’s way way WAY better than the alarm clock you use now, because with this one you can set multiple alarms! Set an alarm for 7 AM on weekdays and for 9 AM on weekends. Set an alarm to remind you that your favorite TV show will soon be on. Set an alarm to remind yourself to go to bed!
  2. Use it as a timer. It’s way way WAY better than the timer you use now, because the one in the kitchen is attached to the oven and if you’re out in the yard you won’t hear it go off. Set a timer for two minutes so you don’t forget to stir the coffee. Set a timer for 12 minutes so you don’t forget to take the biscuits out of the oven. Set a timer for 60 minutes so you don’t run out of time on the parking meter.

The clock app actually has four functions, not just two, but I never use the stopwatch and I only used the World Clock a couple of times– I don’t need to know what time it is in Paris on a daily basis. But who cares about what I don’t use. It’s the stuff that I DO use that is so neat. Anyway, get familiar with the iPhone’s Clock app, and you’ll find yourself using it all the time.

Here’s a picture of my iPhone, with various alarms set for various days.

And here’s a picture of the timer, ready for the biscuits.

That’s it. Check back tomorrow.
