Before I get flamed, yes, I googled and did not find anything. So I thought asking the forum might provide a better or definitive answer. Is there an app or hack that allows the alarm clock to play MP3's when it goes off? Why wouldn't the iPhone be able to do this when the iPod and all other cell phones do? I did the ring tone trick but it seems ridiculous to have to convert a file just so you can get it to play as your alarm sound. Thanks for any help or advice!
