Monday, after reviewing Simple Text, I promised to bring an app that would add to the minimalistic arsenal, so I bring you Text Clock. As you can see above, Text Clock takes a unique approach to the time telling game. This is not a widget but instead runs as a live wallpaper and displays the time in text format. With the settings menu, you can customize the wallpaper with multiple color combinations and different positions. One of the features that caught my attention right away is how the clock reads minutes until hour along with minutes after hour. In other words, 4:46pm will read “fourteen minutes to five o’clock” or 8:20am is “twenty minutes past eight o’clock”. This may not seem groundbreaking but whenever you see time told this way, it just feels classy. And to top it off, this app uses very little battery. So grab this one up if you are into minimalistic text or if you are looking for that next great time app. There is a Lite version and a .99 cent version.
