ClockSmith is a little workshop on your iPhone or iPad to let you arrange your own desktop or nightstand clock. Several time pieces are provided and you can choose which ones you want and position them and size them however you like on your screen. Sizes and positions for both landscape and portrait orientations are saved separately giving you two different layouts.
Time pieces provided in this version include various digital clock readouts, battery status, date/day display, phase of the moon and a mindfulness bell that rings on the hour. Turning your device upside down actives flashlight mode.
Some of the time pieces have settings that can be changed. Quiet hours setting prevents the bell from ringing when you are sleeping. You can play music on your iPod while the app is running. Music will pause when the Mindfulness Bell rings (if bell is added).
ClockSmith supports portrait and landscape modes on iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. No network connection needed. Clock screen can stay on while plugged into power. ClockSmith uses very little battery power and can run on battery with the screen locked (off).
Please write reviews and tell me what additions you would like to see. Comments welcome.
Coming soon: color and photos! You can choose colors and place your own photos anywhere on the clock display.

Well, what can I say about this app?
Well, what can I say about this app? The graphics aren't poor, but it would be good if hey were more exciting. But I think the simplicity of it all makes it so great. It looks alot better in the images; getting the application to that standard is pretty hard! But after awhile of messing around, it is generally the typical good app and becomes great. :)
