Download: DashClock Beta With DayDream Support

dashclock daydream

Yesterday, Roman Nurik teased DayDream support that will be included in the next major update of his now-famous Android lock screen app called DashClock. With no time table set for a release, we thought we should point out that you can download the current beta from the app’s code site today and experience all the DashClock-DayDream action you could ever imagine.

In this beta, don’t forget that you’ll first need to go into your phone’s Settings>Display>DayDream in order to set DashClock as the DayDream option. From there, you can tap the settings menu button, which then pops up DayDream-DashClock settings in the app. The only option that you can currently tweak, is the color of the text that moves in while DayDreaming.

Don’t forget to check out our rolling list of the best DashClock extensions.

Have fun!

Cheers Bill!

    Sweet. I think fading in and out a little slower is better. It moves so quickly that it distracts my eyes enough in a dark room and I kinda wake up a little each time it flashes. But I love the idea and I loves me some Dashclock. I have it on my homescreen, my lockscreen, and now Daydream! It’s taking over my phone!! haha.

    Its cool but I wish there was a dark switch. at night the light tend to get to bright on the fade in but the fade out is perfect.

  • I keep getting a Paraphrase Error when I try to install this?
    I downloaded from the Barcode, on my phone. And, direct on my laptop & moved to Dropbox.
    Both failed. Any thoughts?

    Beta my ass. This thing is working great right now.

  • I must be doing something wrong with Day Dream on Gnex and Nexus 7.

    I have it turned ‘On’ both devices.

    ‘Set on Clock’

    When to Day Dream is set to ‘While Charging’

    However when I place on charger – Day Dream does not start I have to Manually Start Now thru Settings.

    AOKP ROM on both devices Latest Version

    Does this occur to anyone else.

    • Steve Benson

      Hate to be Captain Obvious but you installed the beta version right? The market version doesn’t have the Daydream feature.

      • Yes the Beta version, however no matter which one I select when I place on charger Day Dream does not auto start up like I would think it should.

    • NorCalGuy

      I am also running AOKP linaro aroma nightlies and I can not get the daydream to autostart either

  • eli

    That feel when you don’t have android 4.2

    What task and battery apps are shown in that pic?

    • CasperTFG

      DashClock Battery Extension. Also, there’s Battery+ DashClock Extension.

    • rosssimpson

      Any.DO is the task app 🙂

  • Bushan Bengaluru

    Not working on 4.1… 🙁


      i believe dashclock only works with 4.2

  • So I installed it, but don’t see dashclock as a daydream option. I checked the version in about and it is the beta version.

      Should look like this:

  • Anthony Gordano

    i love it as a daydream more than as a lockscreen widget, but i hope in the final it hides the notification bar. I really hate having two clocks on the same screen

  • Unfortunately I never use it but that’s a great feature.

  • John Burke

    As a Daydream App it’s pretty awesome, but I’m not sold on it replacing WidgetLocker as my Lockscreen even with the half dozen extensions I’ve purchased for it.

    • I wish I had 4.2 to try it out. WL is pretty awesome though. Have you tried the new beta with margin swiping for shortcut panel and camera? Pretty slick.

      • John Burke

        Ya, WL is awesome!
        My main complaint with Dashclock is its extensions count Notifications independently – Dashclock itself should track them all IMO that way they don’t interfere with each other & break other Apps within Accessibility Settings.

    I wonder if these daydream options that don’t move can cause any burn in on the screen? I just looked at Beautiful Widgets daydream option after seeing this Dash Clock screen above and it looks nice..just curious about screen burn in.

    • just as Tiffany implied I am startled that anyone can profit $5873 in 4 weeks on the computer. did you read this webpage

    • sirmeili

      The BW daydream does move…it moves the time/weather parts around and if you turn “animations” on, the background also moves (I thought my screen was going out the other night during a lightnng storm and the background was flashing periodically…LOL). It’s what I have my Nexus 7 set to use when I dock it next to my bed. My only complaint is that in the dark you can see that the blacks aren’t black, but that would really only be solved by a screen like an oled where each pixel is responsible for it’s own brightness (no back light required)

  • Bassdj

    Might have to start using DashClock again.

  • Nexus_FrEak

    This dude is freaking awesome!!
