Trevor let us know about his new app called WordClock. It gives you another option other than the standard clock faces that come with the clock app. Instead of numbers, only text is displayed and highlighted on a static grid. As you can see in the chart above, the free version is limited to the black theme and no other options. For $1.99 you can unlock more themes and options, including the ability to automatically start the app when charging. If you’re wondering how to change the color theme on the paid version, simply swipe the trackpad or touchscreen to the left or right.
I think the app looks very cool. Don’t expect exact times though, as the display only changes every five minutes. That’s the cool way to tell time anyway though right? Rather than saying, “it’s twelve thirty two,” WordClock makes sure you’re using sexytime.
“It is half past noon.”
UPDATE: I just noticed that you can, in fact, tell the exact time using this nifty little app. There are 4 dots in each corner of the screen. At intervals of 5 minutes (2:00, 2:05, 2:10, etc) none of the dots are lit up. Each of the dots represents one of the 4 minutes in between each interval. I thought this was a nice little detail. So if the time is 2:06, it would say, “It is five past two o’clock,” and one of the 4 dots would be lit up. Awesome.
