reClock: Text Clock Widget

- Excellent and minimal design
- Nothing special
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.
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 email@example.com 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!

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.

Now I am using more brain cells when trying to tell the time... :-)
I donated and when I try to add a custom font, when I choose one it just goes back to my home screen and nothing happened. Could be a great widget but just needs a bit of work. Think before you donate.
See note above⬆
Great clock widget but I purchased donate version and didnt recieve the premium features I will give 5 stars when I get all the features
Looks stylish works well. But please enable vertical styles for normal mode too
Very cool concept, definitely like, can't wait for future updates. We definitely need the option to adjust the font size, is this something you will be considering.
