Timer alarm to be installed on an old iPad

I'd appreciate advice on installing a simple timer alarm (something that will set off a loud audio alarm after, say, 35 minutes) on my old model iPad .Is there an alarm built in? If not, can I dl an app from the web? FWIW, I <do> have iTunes on this iPad. Thanks.

You must have a first generation iPad, they had no Clock app built in.

Most apps these days have higher requirements for iOS than that iPad can support.

Your best bet is to jail break it, and use an alternate store to get some apps that will run on it.

Other thoughts:
You could also open the App Store (or whatever it was called on that version) to search for clock apps with alarms and see if there are any. Since you are on the device it should find old apps that are compatible,



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
