Atomic Clock (Gorgy Timing)
By CompuLab, Markus Gömmel
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This tool shows you the ultimate precise time of day. To achieve this, it uses a special internet time protocol to fetch the time from an atomic time server.
We are proud to offer version 4 of the Gorgy Timing Atomic Clock. The program is one of the classic applications since the early days of the Apple App Store and has been continually improved based on user feedback.
The Gorgy Timing Atomic Clock shows the precise time of day. To achieve this, it uses a special internet time protocol to fetch the ultimate precise time from cesium atomic clocks available on the internet, or any other time server you like.
The graphical display mimics the clock display of the legendary Gorgy Timing clocks, which are used in professional radio and television studios, and we spent much effort to bring the original feeling of these wickedly expensive clocks to your iPhone.
Version 4 contains the following functions:
* Universal support for all iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices running iOS 5.1.1 or higher (including iPhone 6, iPhone 6 plus)
* Full support for iOS 8 (multitasking, notifications, etc.), including full 64 bit support
* Alarm function with snooze (touch anywhere on the screen) and 24h alarm off function
* Alarm notification window instead of normal alarm sound, if app is not running or in the background
* Use playlists or a manual picker selection from your own music library as alarm sounds
* The alarm sound is also playing when the device is muted, or the display is switched off, and also works in AirPlay environments
* Customizable time server sources
* Colors: green, red, blue, yellow, white, hidden, with a separate color option for digits, seconds and segments
* Alternative visual display of fractional seconds (1/60th sec. resolution)
* 12/24 hours display
* Optional second tick sound
* Orientation can be changed to landscape mode
* Touching the display lets the buttons and status bar fade out
* Touching the display again will add the current date (in all orientations)
* Disabled screen auto-lock
* Options "sync at startup", "hourly", "daily", or a sync button for manual syncing
* The last known time delta is used when started without sync
* "Night mode", which dims the display using a slider, shows the seconds with only one dot (to prevent a hard brightness switch between second 59 and second 0), switches off the tick sound, and reduces screen updates to save battery
Answers to common questions:
* An application can not set your device's system time, so a time sync between the atomic time and the device time is not possible.
* If you want to wakeup with music, please do not exit the app before going to sleep (which would result in a local notification dialog without music in the morning), but let it run with the display switched off. This application's music alarm, and this is not common, will still work when you switched off the display, even in battery mode. But be aware that running an application all the time, even without display, consumes battery, so please make sure that your iPhone is fully charged before you go to bed, or even better, connect it to your charger.
What's New in Version 4.60
Can you believe, that this is the 34th update of the Atomic Clock app since it started with V1.00?
Here are the changes:
* new option for the second dots ring (default, wave, one-dot, dreamlight)
* new option for hourly or daily time synchronization
* a long press gesture now allows to easily switch between night mode and normal mode
* english is now the fallback language (so the app should no longer start in German, if iOS region settings list is empty)
* clock dots graphics improved
* some internal improvements
Please have a look at the new visual options for the second dots. I think they all look great :)
If you like this app and want to support further development, please rate it 5 star, or even better, write a nice review. I appreciate your support. Please also remember that all reviews and ratings are version dependent, so do not hesitate to resubmit your existing rating or review. Thank you!
Very Good App
I like this alarm clock very much and use it in night mode every night. I do have a few "wishlist" items:
- Because the iPhone or iPad isn't locked when the app is open, the automatic backup to cloud can't be done. Is there a way to fix that?
- The Apple clock app permits setting multiple alarms for different days and that's a big plus. If Apple begins to permit showing the running clock on the locked screen and allow backup, it will make your app much less desirable. Any way to address multiple alarms? Possible to show the clock running on the locked screen, not just an alert? Alternatively, could the alarm operate from the locked screen, even if the face of the clock wouldn't show?
- The Apple clock apps finally changed to show the actual time on the face of the app. Would that be possible?
Excellent attention to detail
I love this app. I have been using it for years now. It is a perfect example of a well-thought-out and well-executed idea. The app focuses on doing its job and nothing more. There are no ads, no gimmicks, no annoying notifications. So refreshing.
I have used this app as an alarm clock, a desk clock display, a presentation timer, a timer, and I'm sure more.
The feature I have come to love the most is the seconds hand sweep. In the default display, the seconds are presented as an ever-marching series of dots. This simple idea makes identifying how long until the next minute super easy. It is so useful.
If you are looking for a clean, precise, and uncomplicated clock app, this app is for you.
App Always Nearby
There is a reason this app is consistently on my phone year after year.
It works great, the interface is simple and it makes management of my wristwatch's efficient. If you try this app to keep your timepiece synchronized you won't be disappointed.
