Yesterday, developer and XDA member zehro released his minimalist clock app, clockr. The app is actually a widget - and it really is as simple as it sounds: it's a pure-text clock.


At the moment, there are no customization options for the widget - that's coming at some point - but it looks like user hollywooder has been hard at work creating alternate themes for the clock. The upside is that there's a degree of variability in usage; the obvious downside is that you need to download and flash an .APK to change the colors.

Nevertheless, it's a very cool widget and perfect for minimalistic themes. Interested? The standard clockr (white) is available in the market, while custom color schemes can be found in the official App thread over at XDA-Developers.

As a few people have pointed out in the comments below, this is fairly similar to Tajm - which is also free, and offers some more customization options.

    Looks like Tajm, althought Tajm does actually have a couple of customization options (background visibility toggle, bg color, text color, show date). This makes Tajm far better, IMHO.

    Complete rip off of Tajm app. Please take your story down or reference Tajm as source for this app.

    I saw Aaron already updated the post with the info about Tajm.

    Just tried both, and Tajm is definitely the winner, with more options and a way to include the date. Love it!

    Here's a screen of both that I just took (Tajm is on the bottom):

    Damn, those are nice wallpapers. Any one have a link to the first and second?

    • Aaron Gingrich

      Agreed. Not sure where they're from, maybe ask in the source thread :)

    I don't get it. Minimalist clock?

    Look in the upper right hand corner of your screen. It's always there.

    ANY clock widget is just eye candy.

      Personally, I can't go against that, but for some reason, clock widgets seem to be quite popular in the Market, so perhaps others think differently...

      Notification bar? What notification bar? ;-)

  • trpt

    Ditto on those wallpapers being awesome. Where are they from?

    • Aaron Gingrich

      I'm not sure where the wallpapers in the post are from - maybe try asking in the source thread?

    The wallpaper can be found on the AppBrain website... i found the one with the leaf on page 31 in "recently popular.
