Night Clock

Night Clock


DONATE version turns off button backlights.

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

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

If you have a problem, email me! This app is intended to be used with the phone plugged in. In "dim" mode the battery will last longer, but having it on all night will drain at least half your battery if you aren't charging.

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."

User reviews of Night Clock
Simple and good and more powerful than it looks. Pity I bought an expensive alarm close with in fact that app does it all, but anyway... :-)

I love this app. I don't have the donate version, but I don't have the backlight problem either. (Samsung Galaxy) It eventually times out. My schedule is different every day, and I think my favorite feature about this clock is the next-alarm-time display. No messing with controls to double-check my wake-up time. And the endless color selection. I've got it in a dark gray that is barely visible under bright light, but perfect for being able to see the time while still keeping the room dark. Two thumbs up.

The night clock i was looking for. Great App!

Best Night Clock I've tried. Definitely the Darkest... like the 2 basic settings for bright / dim. Silences all notifications except for Phone Calls --- so you don't have to go through the hassle of turning Data off overnight or being awaken by text messages / email

No auto start? Simple. Few features. No dock mode.

Simple and great, but... Please add full screen support to hide on screen buttons in Android 5!

perfect! Simple bedside low-light, but easily visible, clock that combines an alarm function. Seems to be very reasonable on battery use. I'm in a hotel which has a clock with no backlight, so found Night Clock - just what I needed. Thanks -I'm donating.

Good clock I like this app. Wish I could say I love it, but it has some security holes.
