    I'll alternate now between Flip Time and this new one:

    [app]qlocktwo[/app]

    Both are interesting for different reasons, but I'm wondering what your favorite (outside the the clock already provided on the iPhone) is that you use?

    I rock ClockFS, for 2 reason because its my app, and its simple. I don't need a clock to set off an alarm...the phone does that. All I wanted was a clock that could be seen from across the room.

    I don't want to hijack this thread but I've read alot of discussion about whether leaving a clock app on for awhile is good for the iphone screen. What are your takes on the issue?

    I've been looking at flip clocks cause I think they're cool but have avoided them cause I wasn't sure if it was good for the phone.

    The iPhone has an LCD screen, same one in your LCD TV, just smaller. Many LCD screens are considered to last 80000 hours. So lets say you leave your screen on 24/7, the screen would survive over 9 years. Your battery is where the problem would lie, but, its going to die in 1-2 years anyway, so chalk it up as a loss right now.

    I may be mistaken but I think he was more concerned with the image of the clock being burned into the screen.

    Is that even possible on LCDs?

    Since the clock would be changing every minute, (or second depending on the app) the image wouldn't burn in. An LCD screen fully refreshes every time a pixel changes.

    Is there not a native clock app from Apple already? :confused:

    Thanks guys. Yes, I was thinking about screen burn in more but the other info is good too. With Apple and the release of iphones, I seriously doubt I'll have this one long enough to see the battery go dead. lol I was thinking of getting one to use occasionally at work.

    Who knows...still on the fence about getting one...

    I knew this issue would arise and that is why I addressed it in my original question.

    Stocks, weather, battery life, on and on... all these are native Apple apps but there are also many outside choices within the Apple iTunes store for variety and 'upgrades'.
