Goldfinger Clock

*** We celebrate the JAMES BOND GLOBAL DAY on October 5th, 2012 with a GOLDFINGER CLOCK free for 007 days! ***

This clock is a little hommage to the third James Bond movie "Goldfinger" from 1964 with Sean Connery and, as "Bad Guy" Auric Goldfinger, Gerd Froebe. He places an "Atomic Device" in Fort Knox (set design by genius Ken Adam). Its countdown was stopped - as an exception not from Bond himself - exactly 7 seconds before the explotion.

So called "Sidelits" were used as displays which are utterly rare and only manufactured for a very short time before those Nixie, filament, fluorescence, LED and LCD techniques appeared (for whom numerious clock implementations already exist for the iPhone). I've never seen "Sidelits" beyond the "Goldfinger" movie - stacks of thin glass plates with engraved "pixels" which reflect the light from a side mounted bulb upwards. Due to this construction the light of the current digit shines through the topmost plates. The "Goldfinger Clock" imitates this fading effect as well.

- Portrait or Landscape Mode.
- Disable Rotation as option.
- Hide Status Bar as option.
- User definable color and brightness for foreground and background.
- No "Vintage Shadow" as option.
- Automatic "Night Mode" with reduced arbitrary brightness.
- "Screen Saver" to eliminate burn effects as option.
- Alarm with sound and/or vibration. Alarm remains active in standby mode.
- Disable iPhone's "Auto Lock" as option to keep "Goldfinger Clock" permanently running.
- Date as "YYYY-MM-DD", "DD-MM-YYYY" or "MM-DD-YYYY".
- Time as "HH:MM:SS" or "HH:MM".
- AND: Define days within periodical intervals (a useful gadget not only for Bond girls...).

- Goldfinger Clock's alarm works also if the iPhone is set to standby and runs with battery. Other alarm clock apps often work only if the iPone is connected to the power supply or a computer.

Not bad though I wish...

This is honestly a pointless app but in all truth I like it, and it's price isn't bad at all. I wouldn't change much about it but I do wish that I could set it as my wallpaper so I could use this to check time without unlocking my phone and it's nicer than the standard clock, other than that this is a really nice edition for true Bond fans, but if your not a huge fan than you may not want to spend the money on this app. If they add a wallpaper background feat. than it would be perfect with a personal 5 star rating!

Grate. Awesome. Cool.

Not only perfect for any bond fan but also with some useful features like night mode and a bucket load of options which causes me to recommend this to not only bond fans but anyone looking for a unique clock. You can tell the makers of this Slappy app took time and thought to create it at a very nice price.

Pretty neat

Needs option to show the actual day of the week (ex: Mon, Tues, Wed... etc.) Also should optimize the use of the screen better to fill up more of the screen especially in landscape. Should also go back to having one spot go to the setup menu vs any part of the screen. It gets annoying when it switches so easily to the setup screen. Big James Bond fan. Sweet app.
