This is a screen full of animated clock hands that roughly show you the time by composing the digits of the current hour. Every full hour some of the hands will line up to form the number. Inspired by an installation of Christiaan Postma.
- On startup the clock hands will animate from 12.00 to the current time.
- When sliding a finger on the screen the clock hands will temporarily move forward.
Don't expect it to be a useful clock. Just play around with the clock hands and have fun!
What's New in Version 1.1
Fix: the clock will now always update to the current time, even if you let it run for a while without touching, or if you had the device locked and turn it back on.
How to tell time...
As the hour progresses, all of the "sticks" rotate. Around the top of the hour the sticks align to form the number of the hour at the appropriate position. In other words, if it is three o'clock a 3 made of sticks will form at the three o'clock spot. You can slide your finger along the face of the phone and see all the numbers form, but to see it work as a clock you have to let this run in the dock.
Confused, reviews all wrong?
I've wasted a lot of time on this, but all I get is EVERY number on a clock as I swipe slowly from top to bottom and the numbers are where they would be on a clock. I see nothing in the center and never the current hour. Just 12 then 1,2,3 etc. It's kinds cool but none of the other reviews bescribe what I get and I don't ever see the current hour, I see all twelve numbers as you scroll. Someone explain the "current hour" thing please!
Not very useful…
Art is subjective, there's not denying that. Even so, I find it hard to give this app more than a two-star rating. The fact that it's free saves it from a one-star rating by me. I just don't see any use for this app, especially since it hasn't been updated in over three years (as of this writing).
