Does anyone know why apple left this out of the iPad? I'm sure there's apps just seems strange.60% of the time it works every time.

It is a bit strange not to have a clock app on it. And you're right, a quick google search lists a fair few. No idea why they did not include one, maybe in the next update they will have it sorted, after all there is a lot about this issue around the internet.

Probably the assumption was most people use an alarm clock or their phones for alarms. Especially since the iPad is large enough that it could be difficult to find a place for it on the average person's nightstand. At least there are plenty of alarm clock apps. I think it's better to leave something off and have an app for it if you want it. The less excess the better in my opinion.64GB iPhone 6, 64GB iPad Air 2.

Get yourself a nice case for your iPad that will allow it to stand up at the angle that you like, and any of the above will make a stunningly beautiful alarm clock!
