Clock and a Bit More with TimmoClock

Widgets are great. They allow users to access favorite or important apps and functions quickly and easily, with only a couple of swipes of home screens. However, would you want to swipe through page after page of screens just to reach that ‘conveniently’ placed shortcut or widget? This is exacerbated when one is unwillingly awakened from midnight slumber just to check the time. Not only does the brightness of the screen further burn your eyes the longer you grudgingly squint at it, but your eyes burn longer the more home screens you have to swipe through just to reset the alarm or check the time. Well, TimmoClock ventures to rid this problem.

Developed by XDA Forum Member timmo15, TimmoClock packs useful functions and shortcuts into one small app to hopefully relieve these midnight woes. With an interface pleasant to the eye and responsive to the touch,the app consists of a simple screen that displays the time in analog and digital form, the date, month and year, the current battery level, and four quick shortcuts to essential apps and features. These include the camera, the Play store, the browser and Voice Search. Tapping on the screen on ‘sleep’ mode, which displays the time, date, and battery level at a dim screen brightness. Widgets displaying the time in analogue form can also be placed, providing shortcuts to the main app.

Although not revolutionary, TimmoClock is useful to users looking to access key shortcuts without having to deal with home screen scrubbing, which for many, can be quite a laggy and inefficient affair. It’s available to all users of Android versions 2.1 and newer, and can be downloaded for free exclusively from the XDA forums. If you’re interested and would like to know more, check out the original thread for more details and download.
