24h Analog Clock Widget


This is a homescreen widget that displays a 12-at-the-top 24 hour analog clock. Noon is at the top, so that the hour hand mimics the path of the sun.

In addition to the time, it will display when the sun rises/sets for your current location on the dial.

This widget offers 2x2 and 3x3 sizes, and is fully resizable on 4.x devices.

Permissions:
The sunrise/sunset feature uses the location permission. This will not impact battery life as it never actively requests location - it only uses cached locations acquired by other apps.

NOTE: if the widget's hands suddenly disappear, please try removing the widget from the homescreen and then re-add it. If that doesn't work, please contact the developer. This is a known issue and is being looked at presently.

Note note: Support for the Galaxy Note is coming soon! If you are a developer and want to help with the effort of bring Note support, please contact the developer below.

Source code is available on the site.

Great This is so good I think physical clocks should be manufactured this way!

Amazing idea Wish it was the default clock. Stuck to my homescreen! Would be amazing if it had options, possibly day/night gradient? Nice work!

Pretty snazzy The clock face doesn't really jell with the current Android style, so the ability to change it would be welcome. That aside, having midnight at the bottom is a nice touch, as is the sunrise/sunset marking. ...side note: another reviewer said there's a "12-hour minute hand" and gave it one star... Whut? It's a sixty-minute minute hand, ya dingus.

Why make do with a 12 hour clock dial? We have 24 hours in a day. Why use a clock or watch that shows only 12? This delightful app also shows when it's dark during that 24 hour day and it is fascinating to see the shaded portion of the dial shrink a little each day towards midsummer and then grow to its maximum at midwinter.
