Unhappy Bedside Clock App. for 8310

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,
I just got two charging pods for my Curve (one for office, one for the bedroom) and I wonder is there application that recognize that the handset is in the charging pod(is charging) and would show on display the time(large digits which would fill the whole screen) - maybe white digits on black background, and the backlight of the screen would remain On?? I searched but couldn't find anything...
Many thanx!

This is something that will be part of 4.6 (and is on the Bold). I am not sure if the backlighting function is there, but I know there is a BBLight app that does what you are looking for.

It wouldn't hurt to add this to the "unwritten application thread". Maybe a developer will pick it up, but its a long shot with the functionality coming.

There is an application called Big Clock which when combined with BB light will do what you want.

The Big Clock app is a good way to go (if you are okay paying for it). Just a warning, the Big Clock app does not offer true bedside mode by turning the radio off, adjusting the profile , etc. Not sure if it matters to the OP but just a note.
