Nixie Clock Radio is a touch-based streaming AAC and MP3 radio and alarm-clock for your iPod or iPhone, the only Nixie-inspired streaming clock radio alarm in the App Store.
Nixie Clock Radio streaming clock radio is inspired by the soft orange glow of real Nixie tubes, and we worked hard to develop an application that is a real pleasure to use, with a smoothly animated feel.
★ Nixie Clock Radio streaming radio plays AAC and MP3 streams, fresh from the internet,
★ Nixie Clock Radio wakes you to a buzzer, then streaming radio,
★ Nixie Clock Radio sleep timer turns the streaming radio off automatically, after a selectable delay of up to 9 hours and 59 minutes,

Works good, Not the Best Nixie effect
This app is a cool retro clock that simulates the old Nixie Tube digital displays. These were the first truly digital display devices used in the 60s and early 70s before LEDs were developed.
As a maker of Nixie clocks, I'm just a bit disappointed in the recreation of the display. These are basically just orange digits. The best Nixie effect I've seen yet is on the (interestingly) the new iPod Nano. The digits have a faint glow around them and there is a hint of the anode "screen" over the digits.
The remainder of the app works ok. I wanted it mostly for the display.
Streams crash it.
