There are a couple of caveats to SpotAlarm, which are required to make the tweak work properly. For one, the tweak only works with passcode or touch ID disabled. Furthermore, since the track will be streaming directly from Spotify, the iPhone requires a data connection to play the song when your alarm goes off.
