Better Desk Clock

Better Desk Clock


BetterDeskClock is a simple desk-clock app that runs as a screen-saver on your phone.

Back in the late 90’s, when simple cellphones ruled the earth, I used to take a glance at my phone whenever I wanted to know the time. These days are over, and smart phones don’t have this feature. If you’re like me, you’ll enjoy this app. This is the first and only app, as far as I know, that lets you set your desk clock as a true screen-saver. The app will launch automatically once the screen is turned off so the clock is always available to you without the need to manually launching the app.

Power-consumption is minimal and it comes with power-saving features. Also, while app is running the screen is locked and all possible (except for HOME button, which technically cannot be reprogrammed in Android) keys are disabled to prevent waking up accidently in your pocket.

If you encounter any issue, be sure to email us first before rating down this app - we will do our best to resolve any issue. Any feature requests or suggestions are welcome!

* Fully customizable: lets you change orientation, display formatting, colors, sizes and fonts (including two digital fonts and the new Roboto from Android 3.0) to suit your taste
* Moves around to prevent screen burn-in
* Screen backlight is automatically dimmed (in supporting devices)
* Can be disabled temporarily for convenience
* Includes a widget to quickly enable/disable from the home-screen
* Low power consumption with additional power-saving features

Nice options and nice graphics Doesn't suck battery power as much as the other ones I have installed. All in all I like it!

FINALLY found an easy to use desk clock Recent upgrade from HTC Evo 4 to HTC Evo 4GTE. The desk clock option was eliminated. I looked at hundreds of clock apps and probably loaded 10+/- down to evaluate. My criteria was pretty simple. Works in both orientations. Can make the display dimmable (sp) for use at night. Move the time around to prevent screen burn. This is the first one I found that had all three. This is not an alarm clock, it is a desk clock. If I need alarm function I can just use the one that is included. After hours of searching, I would give this app 6 stars if I could.

Perfect Great app if you miss desk clock function that used to be on phones! Wonderful developer also who actually responds in few days with questions. For me, very worth the minute cost as used daily.
