This Sunday marks the end of daylight savings. Don’t forget to reset your clocks before going to bed on Saturday night! The iPhone offers a number of alarm clock apps to choose from so you won’t oversleep through services or Meet the Press.

While there are hundreds of Alarm Clock apps to choose from at the iTunes App Store, the 99-cent Night Clock app is very easy to set up and is also a great travel companion. If waking up to your favorite tunes is a priority, then 99-cent Music Alarm Clock and the $1.99 Musical Awakening are both good options.

Apps to scare you silly
There is something scarily special in years like this when Halloween falls on a Saturday. With more time, turn to your iPhone to find and put on the perfect costume or figure out exactly how many calories you and your kids will consume on Sunday.

Appolicious spook scribe Christopher Brinckerhoff details everything in Halloween apps: Separating the treats from the tricks. Looking for that last minute costume? Download Halloween Costume Generator for $1.99. Crazy Chainsaw, at 99 cents, is a great complement to any horror-themed outing. Want something more kid friendly? The free Monster Mash game will do the trick.

Run with these iPhone apps
The New York City Marathon is on Sunday. Megan O’Neil, who recently ran the Chicago Marathon, instructs us on the best iPhone apps to download in order to gear up for a marathon. Whether you are competing this weekend or training for an upcoming race, the first thing you need to know is where to find the starting line. At 99 cents, Can Do 26.2 is a great place to start. The 99-cent iTreadmill app is great for training, while, for $1.99, you can download Cardio Workout Music for a list of 78 fast beat songs.

Pro Athletes and the iPhone
Between football and World Series games this weekend, read Don Kricke’s interesting account of the Past, present and future of athlete iPhone apps. As pioneering as the now $2.99 Ochocinco Experience may be, we  are still early in the first quarter when it comes to this kind of innovation on the iPhone.

Happy trick or treating!
