iHome introduced a free application for the iPhone and iPod touch called iHome+Sleep. This app provides a full-screen clock display along with weather widgets, the iPod control cluster, and a customizable background image. iHome+Sleep also introduces the Sleep Card, which lets you create multiple profiles for wakeup times, sleep and wakeup sounds, messages, and reminders.

iHome claims the iHome+Sleep app will "enhance the modern sleep cycle" with its innovations, which include:
  • Sleep Stats: a running record of the user’s sleep habits, including how many times they snooze, average bedtime, hours of sleep, and many more;
  • Social Media Alerts: Facebook Connect & Twitter integration allows users to send their friends preset or impromptu messages at bedtime and wakeup;
  • Overnight News: a new take on the morning paper, users can read what happened on their social networks while they were sleeping.
The iHome+Sleep app is available from the App Store as a free download. iHome plans to make the app available with other soon-to-be-released App-Enhanced products from iHome.

True, I have a feeling I'd be telling people I sleep when I don't so as not to be bugged.

Gib, that's known as the "social AFK" in online RPGs. There always seems to be someone lonely who wants to start a conversation with you when you're trying to battle your way through hordes of monsters. I guess that applies in real life, too!

Here's my iPod Touch wish list: One that would start the coffee maker when you hit the snooze bar. Oh, and that includes putting the coffee into the brewer and taking some half & half out of the fridge.

Wish list aside, that's a pretty good clock app. As it's free, I'll try it out, and maybe even spring for the iHome dock (their other iPod/iPhone products are pretty well regarded).
