THE CLOCK APP MANUAL
*The Clock app is the basic application of iOS devices.
*Anything that has to do with time.
*The Clock app has basically four independently working applications (Worls Clock, Alarm, Stopwatch and Timer).
INTEGRATION WITH OTHER APPLICATIONS
THE CLOCK APP ICON:
*The Clock app is on the main screen of the device.
*The clock app is live, while the hands are moving.
THE WORLD CLOCK TAB:
*This is the first tab, when user click on the Clock app.
*The user can see the times in other areas of the planet.
THE ALARM TAB:
*The user can add, edit, delete and rearange multiple alarms into the device.
THE STOPWATCH TAB:
*The interface features a large stopwatch at the top of the screen and two buttons that lie below.
*The large main stopwatch is a culmination of the entire stopwatch duration, while a smaller stopwatch located in the upper right-hand corner contains the duration for the current lap only.
*The start button allows users to start and stop the stopwatch, and the button directly to its right pulls double-duty as a reset and lap button. When using the lap button, each lap is displayed below to allow users to track each lap time.
THE TIMER TAB:
*The Timer tab lets the user to create a countdown timer that’s as short as 1 minute long, as long as 23 hours and 59 seconds, or anywhere in-between. The timer can be changed using an hour and minute scroll interface that can be adjusted independently of one another.
*Beneath the scroll interface, the user will find a panel that allows the user to choose a trigger action for when the timer ends. The user can choose a ringtone, buy more ringtones, or choose a stop playing action. The stop playing action allows users to stop playing music from any now-playing app after the timer has fully elapsed. This is a little-known feature of the stock Clock app, and it’s one the I find the most useful when it’s bed time.
*The bottom of the timer interface contains two buttons that look similar to the buttons featured in the Stopwatch tab. There’s a Start/Cancel button for starting or canceling the countdown timer, and a Pause/Resume button for pausing and resuming the timer.
*The Clock app doesn’t feature its own dedicated settings, but THE USER can find date & time settings in Settings > General > Date & Time.
*Inside of the Date & Time settings panel, the user will find two toggles—one to enable 24-hour time, and another to set the clock automatically. If the user disables the Set Automatically toggle, iOS lends the liberty to select a time zone using the Time Zone panel that lies beneath.
*The Clock app can be integrated with Siri,
*With voice commands The Clock app can be used.
-Turn off all my alarms.
-Set the timer for five minutes.
-Wake me up tomorrow at 6am.
ADDING A NEW WORLD CLOCK:
*The user can easily add to the World Clock tab by tapping the ‘+’ button, found in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
*The user can add plenty of locations in the world.
*There is a search box at the top of the screen, where the user can list the exact location.
ADDING AN ALARM:
*A new alarm can be added by using the ‘+’ button found in the upper right-hand corner of the Alarm tab.
*The clock interface at the top of the Add Alarm page allows the user to scroll through the hours, minutes, and AM/PM indicator if using a non-24 hour clock setup.
*The time scroller lies four additional options for customizing the way the alarm looks and operates. There’s a repeat option that lets the user repeat an alarm on certain days. A single day or multiple days can be selected if you wish for the alarm to repeat for more than one day.
*Under the repeat section, the user will find a panel for adding a label to the alarm clock. Labels let the user quickly identify the purpose of an alarm, and they are also handy for referencing certain alarms through Siri voice commands.
*After the label section lies the sound panel. Here, the user can select from any song contained in the Music app library, ringtones, or choose to omit a tone altogether. The Music apps songs can be from artists, albums, playlists, etc. Any song, even if it stored in iCloud via iTunes Match, can be added as an alarm sound.
*The last option available when adding an alarm is the snooze toggle. Enabling this toggle allows the user to snooze alarms after they sound. Snooze can be enabled by tapping the snooze button on the screen, or by using the physical sleep, or volume buttons on your device. Snoozed alarms will wait an additional nine minutes before sounding again.If the user happen to be on the Lock screen when an alarm is snoozed, the user will be provided with a handy countdown timer that shows how much time needs to elapse before the alarm sounds again.
EDITING AND DELETING THE CLOCKS:
*There is an Edit button in the upper left-hand corner of the interface. Click on “Edit” button.
*After clicking on “Edit” button, click on the red ‘-‘ button to the right of each individual clock to delete a clock.
*When the user finishes editing the clock, the user should tap the Done button in the upper left-hand corner to exit edit mode.
EDITING AND DELETING ALARMS:
*The user need to tap the Edit button located in the upper left-hand corner of the Alarm tab. When the user enter edit mode, the user should tap on the alarm that the user wish to change, and alter any of its settings. Once the user are finished editing, the user should tap the Save button in the upper right-hand corner of the interface.
*Deleting alarms can be done in one of two ways. The easiest way to delete an alarm is to go into edit mode using the Edit button in the upper left-hand corner, tap the red ‘-‘ button next to the alarm the user wish to delete, and tap the delete button that appears. The second way to delete an alarm is to enter edit mode, tap on the alarm the user wish to delete, and tap the delete button at the bottom of the screen.
*On the left-hand side of the clock, the user will find the name of the location. Under the name of the location lies a time reference that makes it possible to see how the time in a specific location compares to the time in the user’s current location.
