Say hello to Chameleon Clock - a big, bold, beautiful clock for iOS. Chameleon Clock blends into your environment by using the camera on the back of your device to either sample the colour of whatever is behind it or, play a live video feed.

Toggle the time display between black & white to match your device with a simple tap and change its transparency with a swipe up or down - anything from jet black and pure white all the way down to barely visible for a more subtle effect.

Tap the mode icon in the bottom left hand corner of the screen to switch between Chameleon Mode where the background colour of the screen is constantly updated to match whatever is behind it, and Live Camera Mode where the background becomes a live video feed.

Remember, Chameleon Clock needs you to make it look great so make sure you put something interesting behind it. And we'd love to see the results so send us photos or screengrabs and we'll post them on our blog -

Did Netwalk Give Up On This?

Ambrose Little

The live video feed (the coolest part of this) is locked into one orientation. It works if you have the iPad propped up by the smart cover. That's it. But it is cool. Great concept if only the orientation worked right. It also seems to forget your font color setting.

Seems like something easy enough to fix, but if you go to Netwalk's site, there is no mention of this app. Makes me think they've ditched it, so if you're hoping for a fix, it seems doubtful.

Great App, Beautifully Simple Clock


Not sure what all the other reviews are about. I took the leap and purchased this app and it works great.

I think maybe people need to read the instructions before whining on here about the app not working.

I usually have a clock on either my iPhone or iPad running on my desk at all times. This has become my new clock.

One down side, live camera mode is a battery hog but this is kind of expected.

Great app guys. Thanks!

I think the only perk of this app is to take a live screen shot w the time and date imprinted Onto the shot. It's difficult to hold cam while pressing both buttons to grab the screenshot so mission NOT always accomplished. There is no reason to buy this app unless u just want the kick of the kick...totally understandable.
