Disappearing Bedside Clock
By Midnight Oil Enterprises LLC
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
A bedside clock that keeps you in the dark—except when you want to know the time. The clock display disappears after an adjustable time interval, letting you (and the device) rest peacefully.
Touch the screen to check the time, which will again disappear after the adjustable interval. On iPhones in portrait orientation, you don't have to touch the screen to see the time. Simply wave your hand in front of the screen to activate the iPhone's proximity detector and the time display! Or, on all devices, enable adaptive vibration sensing to activate the display with a touch to your nightstand or even a footstep on your floor.
Optional brightness dimming is also provided, which lowers the screen's backlight brightness once the clock has disappeared to produce an even darker display and lower power consumption. (The backlight is dimmed as low as possible automatically, but it is not turned off. On iPhones in portrait orientation, holding your hand in front of phone's proximity sensor for a full second will turn off the backlight. )
If you have enabled "Hey Siri!" you can activate the time display with your voice. Simply say "Hey Siri! Goodbye." to see the time! Use Siri to enable Do Not Disturb mode and manage alarms.
Embrace the darkness!

> proximity detection on iPhones in portrait orientation
> adaptive vibration sensing
> voice activation using Siri
The default vibration sensitivity setting is quite high, so you may want to decrease it slightly if ambient vibrations are triggering the display unintentionally.
No ads, no in-app purchases, no nonsense.
What's New in Version 1.4.3
Version 1.4.3 addresses several issues:
* Provides show/hide date option
* Increases the minimum duration of 1, 2, & 3-finger long press gestures to a full second to reduce unintended gesturing
* Fixes zero-valued parameter restoration bug

As always, thanks for using our apps. We appreciate your support!
Many products try to do too much. This app does it all with very few features. I threw my old big clunky annoying alarm clock into the trash after I set this up on my phone. Now I just put my iPhone in a cradle and set the sensitivity to high and at night I just have to barely tapped the bedside table and it lights up with the time briefly. I couldn't be happier.
Also, I reached out to Support with a question and they replied with a detailed explanation in less than five minutes. Having amazing support and such an awesome app I would pay 10 times what they're asking :-)
Could not design a better clock myself
Love this clock. Everything I want in a clock. No fluff like weather or news messages....just an alarm clock that you can customize like you want. It won't keep you up when you want to sleep and it will wake you up when you are ready.
Customer service is fantastic too. I was having a problem with it not dimming (my fault), so I emailed them at 1 AM before going to sleep. When I got up at 5 AM, there was a solution in my inbox. Wow! Great product and company. Definitely give these guys a chance, you will be happy you did.
I can't sleep with glowing lights in the room so this is the perfect app for me. My iPhone charges in a dock on my nightstand and with the wave of my hand I can check the time on my phone without fumbling around to click buttons on the phone. The new updates have made this app even better! Proximity detection is amazing stuff!! I honestly didn't know my phone had these capabilities. Now I can check the time just by touching my night stand and the phone lights up for a couple seconds.
And with new updates this app continues to get better and better.
