Over the years I have used iPods and the like as night stands, and for years they have looked like an htc’s home screen with the weather and the flip style clock. Even after the design evolution that was iOS 7 the style of these apps never changed. I have put together two similar, but slightly different designs (key word here is designs, I haven’t started to implement these designs yet).
It is a reimagining of a simple idea in a style that would make Johnny Ive proud. These are only designs but when implemented it will display current weather information, date, and act as an alarm. Ideal for use whilst iPhone is in dock. I am interested to look into releasing these designs into the real world as an app but although I could write the application I don’t currently have an Apple developer account to publish it and I don’t see that changing soon. I think I am most likely going to try and create an application similar to the style of the picture on the right.
