Clockr Battles Tajm for Best Minimalist Clock Widget

There are 2 really simple clock widgets available for the minimalist enthusiasts out there that we highly recommend.  The newest is Clockr which showed up in just the last week and seems to have taken the world by storm with its super clean approach.  It has one setting for now, but the developer behind it is hoping to add color options in the very near future.  The other option is Tajm, which has been around for a long time, but doesn’t seem to get the amount of love it deserves.  It’s from the same developer who created Battstatt and offers you a little be lengthier time stamp plus some color options, but is just as lovely.  

Which one is your favorite?

And of course there is always TypoClock.

    well I've tried everything I know but can't download Clockr anywhere


  • asheisarockstar

    For anybody trying to download this, turns out the developer took it out of the Market until some bugs are fixed. You can still download the beta here (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=818529) if you want it.

  • andriakaye

  • Clockr crashes my Droid.

  • mharmon

  • TypoClock. You can grab the apk here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=814054

  • julipsydreams

  • Very interesting and insightful. I can relate to this both from a jogging and writing perspective.

    widget: dClock

    I found this one last week, and its been around for about a month. I think it may still count as minimalistic … just has a bit more info. i just have it pair with batt stat and those are the only two things on my homescreen (and i hide my notification bar).

    Is there a minimalist weather app?

  • Mike

    since i cant get typo clock to work on my droid, i pick clockr. nice and clean

  • Br_d

    I think “1:22” is way more minimalist than “TWENTY TWO minutes past ONE PM” but that's just me.

    • The_Other_Ray

      I want one that says “the little hand is on one and the big hand is on two ticks past the four”.

  • Which one allows for larger sizes? That's what I need.

    • El El Kool J

      LPP will let you resize anyone of them

      • Barlog

        How do u resize with LPP? Do you mean when you long press on the clock and u can stretch the widget like motoblur does? Cause when I do that with these clocks it just moves there position on the screen it doesnt make them bigger? Am I missing a setting somewere? Ive checked every setting Im confused?

        • ReebX

          Put the widget on the left side, then do a long press. One you see the frame around it, drag the lower right hand side around to get the desired size. Use the back button when you are done to remove the resize frame.

    The biggest problem with Tajm is that for those of us older than 40, it's impossible to tell whether it's twenty two minutes TO one pm or twenty minutes PAST one pm.

  • snoty

    I like this!!! I normally just have the Beautiful Widgets small home with the clock and weather, but now have the small weather with the Clockr. Tried out Tajm and TypoClock also, but like Clockr better.

  • Chris.Go

    There is a clock in the upper right.

    • Michael_NM

      +1 and it's quite minimal. 🙂

    • adfasdf

      Which you can remove if you have CyanogenMod.

  • Gotmurph84

  • Epell
