After successfully installing the betterAlarm tweak, a dedicated preference pane is seamlessly integrated into the Settings app. This intuitive interface allows you to not only enable the tweak, but also customize an array of available options according to your preferences.

With betterAlarm, you have the power to transform the aesthetics of your alarms and timers, and you can even incorporate them into the Status Bar.

With betterAlarm tweak, the possibilities to customize your alarm screen are endless. You have the freedom to fine-tune various aspects of its appearance.

If Smart Snooze is disabled, you can also adjust the amount of screen space each button occupies.

Adding to the customization options, you can select a background color that suits your taste. The support for gradients enables you to create visually stunning effects. Not only that, you can customize the text color to ensure optimal visibility and readability. Additionally, you have the flexibility to adjust the text size according to your preference.

Smart Snooze feature lets you define a fixed number of max snoozes. Each time you press the snooze button, the next time the alarm goes off the snooze button will be a bit smaller.

Activate the QR code confirmation feature in BetterAlarm. By enabling this option, you'll need to scan a designated QR code to silence the alarm completely.
