Please Login to Remove!

Looking for a large clock for my blackberry, one that I can glance at and see the time real quickly. Any suggestions. Thanks.

To sit on your homecreen?
If so, check out the media section for themes. I dont remember but also check out the BB Today program which has a stickie in the After market section.

I have not seen a big clock. Please check the themes. If it does not exist, it would be a real nice Zen theme.

If not on the homescreen, maybe an application that I can flip to that shows the time.

A few months back, I bought a large clock app called, iirc -- Vorino clock. You can do a search for it on Handango.

I got it on a whim. It's configurable to run in the background and jump to the foreground after a period of inactivity (a la screensaver); but to me it's of limited value because I also have Pocket Day Pro do the same thing -- and perhaps more significantly, my screen display backlight is set to turn off after a minute... so I can't see either one.

I suppose if I really wanted a clock display while on the desktop charging, I would:

- use the Vorino clock, set to kick in after a minute or so.

- disable Pocket Day Pro.

- use BBLight to set the display backlight to remain on while charging.

I find if I use the BB Dimension Today theme, it gives a bigger clock on the home screen. But can anyone tell me it this them is customizable in any way to choose what shows up on the home screen?

Default MyClock is inexpensive and has both digital & analog options

MyClock 2.0 - BlackBerry Handheld Software - powered by Handango

I use my Pearl as an alarm clock. It sits in a Seidio cradle on my night stand and I use BBLight to keep the backlight on when it is charging. MyClock is easily read from across the room. One potential drawback is that the digital clock cannot be configured as a 12 hour clock (AM/PM).

Regards,

Randall

Can anyone else test this link?
