- Seven segment font
- Not very original
+ By Ned Fox
Traditional 7 segment red alarm clock - but also with customizable color and font.
This app is great if you want a traditional styled, 7 segment red alarm clock - or any other color for that matter.There are no real problems with the app - it isn't especially original however.
The app has three font options, and you can choose any color you want. The default options are red, and seven segment font, like a traditional alarm clock. The app is simplistic, and easy to use.
There's really not much to complain about - Night Clock isn't especially original, but it does what it does well.
If the background is a gradient instead of just black, you need to: turn off "Force GPU rendering" in your phone's "Developer"
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:
-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."
Some bug fixes, allowed move to SD. Removed ads and internet permissions.

bought the "donate" version which is suppose to turn off the "return" and "settings" button on galaxy note 2 (I thought). didn't turn off the white buttons. ?? other than that a wonderful clock. dim is perfect for sleeping. haven't tried the alarms yet (being retired, it's not an issue:-)
Thanks for the ap
I use it often.
I used this application for many years on my old galaxy s2. A few updates ago, this application started using an extreme amount of battery life. I can no longer leave the application running while the phone is in its dock. When I upgraded to the Galaxy s4, the problem became ten times as bad. It's a shame because it was a great application.
When I was using on my S4 it was perfect! But now I'm using the S5 and there is no longer a menu option so I can't choose my font, color, or show my alarm. This used to be my favorite night clock, now not so much. And I don't know what happened but now there's a back light which was never there before.
