"Six Till Twelve Thirty"

Reviewed by / Aug 26, 2013

Read the hour with this beautiful widget

reClock™ is a text clock for the home screen that presents the hour in a brand different way. There are no numbers in this app, the widget presents each hour in text, as you would say it out loud.

This way, you would have something like this: Six Till Twelve Thirty, which can help you practise your hour telling, in case you weren't really good at it.

There are various customization options: change the font, choose the preferred layout and finally select your favorite style: text and background color. In addition, you can present the text without the references (that is, simply twelve twenty five) and experiment with the reflections.

THOMAS BARRASSO is the developer of reClock, a clock that helps you stay active and remember how to tell the hours.

Great design and good idea for a widget.

Developer's original description available here
reClock™ is the text clock home screen widget that you actually have to read!

Attention is in high remand and short supply: quite often we find ourselves missing something or having to double-check. reClock displays the current time in reference to a recent or upcoming time. The result is that you actually have to read and process the text to know what time it is!

NOTICE: reClock is still in its early stages of development: bugs are possible! Please send an email to with a description of the issue (screenshots are nice too!).


By reading and processing the text that reClock displays, your brain is actively engaged. Even reading an analog clock can become an automatic process. reClock requires us to do simple, mental, mathematical operations. Over the course of weeks, we'll remember time more often and improve our biological clocks!


"LOVE doing simple math to figure out what time it's acceptable to drink beer at." - Tom Cullen

"Best Clock Widget… the design is fantastic and the concept is amazing. I actually like to check the time now!" - Nick Sarafolean

"Excellent idea! Great job done, no permissions needed and magnificent look." - Santiago Pive

"A lot of times I look at the time and 5 seconds later forget what I just saw. I'm in." - sk3litor

reClock is highly customizable: you can configure the text & background colors, font, and stylistic arrangement of text! reClock comes with many fonts, and the ability to load font files from the SD card.


We work hard developing reClock and would really appreciate your support! As a way to say thank you, we'll unlock additional features and styles before they're available to everyone. We won't give you a trial: reClock is yours to use for all of your days. It would just be great, if finances permit, to donate (we're only asking for $1.29, much less than a cup of coffee).


• In-app Billing: needed for the in-app Google Play Store donation.
• Read external storage: access font files on the SD card.
• Set alarm: open the "create new alarm clock" screen when the widget is clicked.


That's simple, reClock does not collect ANY information, period.


Check out the "About reClock" section of the app. We'd love it if you could give it a rating. If you're fluent in English and another language, contact us. We'd love to localize reClock in your native language. Check out the links and email below for more info.

    Exactly what I wanted, thanks a lot. I have a question though, how do I get in to the settings of the widget? Like if I wanna edit time widget on my screen? and one more thing, am I missing something, or there is no way to Chang the size of the text? Also

    I like the simplicity and aesthetics of this clock widget, but I didn't realize how small the text is until I tried to fill more of the screen. It isn't large enough and tends to be off-center, and after I traveled it got stuck on a different time zone. T

    Works well most of the time, original time widget, however it's unstable. Widget often disappears when phone on standby/sleep mode. I have to press the space for it to reappear, it also sometimes appears as smudged picture of my other widget where it supp
