Night Clock: Donate


If button lights don't turn off, try:
1) Turning your phone's automatic brightness on or off
2) Tap to dim screen, then turn screen off and then on (using the button on your phone)

To find the settings menu on S5, just hold in the multitasking key (left soft key at bottom of phone).

This version turns off button backlights for most, but not all, phones. In particular, some new KitKat (Android 4.4) phones do not allow apps to turn off button backlights. If it doesn't work (with the tips above), just uninstall for a refund. Some phones disable my ability to turn the lights off, and unfortunately there's nothing I can do about that.

If the background is a gradient instead of just black, you need to: turn off "Force GPU rendering" in your phone's "Developer"
settings.

If you have a problem, email me!

This is a simple, retro-style night clock. It will display the time in big, bold letters (three fonts and any color to choose from), along with having a built-in alarm (or you can use your stock android alarm, it it's supported). Since the screen will stay on while the application is open (unless you manually turn it off), it is highly recommended that you keep your phone plugged in to charge otherwise it will drain the battery.

Some features include:
-Silence notifications
-Tap to dim screen to lowest possible setting
-Launches when put into the multimedia dock (also has flipped mode for use without a dock)
-Font and color settings (when choosing text color, drag your finger away from the center to change transparency)
-Built in alarm (or use stock Android alarm, if your phone supports it)
-Show next alarm on clock screen

Some comments from users:

Kevin: "Simple, Effective, Does Exactly What I Want I looked at a number of other apps and this was the only one that did what I needed. It has multiple alarms; a great low light night time display; simple interface. It took me a minute to realize that I can add my own custom alarm sounds by putting an MP3 in the folder 'alarms' at the base of my sd card. I was also able to dim the back light on the buttons using tasker, but I plan on upgrading to the donate version if the alarm continues to work well."

Frank: "I'm blind as a bat without my glasses at night. The big numbers can easily be seen."

Aimee: "Works great on my Droid X. Exactly what I needed and my alarm still goes off as set. Great app with great dim feature that still makes it easy to see."

Recent changes:
-Made it so buttons disappear on Ice Cream Sandwich devices
-Added ability to move app to SD card
-Fixed alarm bug in v2.42

Great app, nice and dark. I would give 6 stars if it had an option to gradually increase the alarm volume.

This has become my clock and alarm of choice - especially since buying the Multimedia Docking Station.

Android buttons won't shut off I've been loving and recommending this app for years but since my Note 3 was upgraded to kitkat, the buttons won't dim. The suggested fix did not work. I hope this can be fixed. Also, the "tap to dim" feature doesn't work.

Very good app Galaxy 10.1 can't turn off button lights but worth paying anyway.

Love the app, not working with KitKat I've used this clock for years. It's perfect for me. Just a clock with an alarm. I charge my phone at night so battery usage isn't a problem. BUT since my unfortunate choice to upgrade to KitKat, the screen is turning off during the night. This means to see what time it is I must push the side button twice to get the screen to light up. I'm using a Droid Razr Maxx HD.

Does everything it is supposed to. Works very well on my RAZR max HD... Prior to kit Kat update... Now I can not use my saved alarm tones. Fix and I will be your best friend again.
