The iPad makes a great traveling alarm clock, particularly if you've brought along a stand. (Hotel alarm radios are often tricky to configure, and wake-up calls won't keep you from falling back asleep.) The iPad doesn't come with an alarm clock app, but Nightstand Central is a great solution.

The free version has weather information, customizable wallpapers--and ads. The ad-free full version ($3) includes a flashlight that you shake on and off (handy for those 3 a.m. time-checks); music alarms; a sleep timer for falling asleep to music, podcasts, and other sounds; and various wallpaper and configuration options.

re: 10 Great Summer iPad Apps
Another thing to remember when you are using your iPad for summer activities is that when the heat is out and you are being more active, that protecting your device is really quite important as well. I cannot even tell you how many times I have felt like my device was in danger either because the kids were going wild, the weather changed, or some other unforeseen circumstance arose. All of these apps are great, but I would also enjoy having a device that works. There a few options that I like including a company called Maroo that is all about protecting the device from bumps and bruises. Feel free to check out what I am talking about....
