[prMac.com] San Francisco, CA - Tav Shande, the award-winning artist from the United States and developer of Vanity, The World's First Face-Rating App for the iPhone, today announced his precise mobile time reference tool for displaying how much time we all have left before the end of the world - A Doomsday Clock - is now available as an app for the iPhone and iPod touch from the App Store - the first of its kind.
Many people suffer anxiety at the prospect of the world ending. These fears range from anxiety at finishing tasks on time to complete inability to go outside. Whether it is political threats from the Cold War, to the massive amounts of bad news we are bombarded with daily, or simply the fear of a nuclear bomb being dropped on your house, this app is designed to help people know exactly how much time is left before they really need to start worrying.
A Doomsday Clock app is the only mobile mirror of the symbolic Doomsday clock face, not many people know really exists, maintained since 1947 by the board of directors of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists at the University of Chicago. The closer the clock is to midnight, the closer the world is estimated to be to global disaster. The app will put many people at ease and enable them to check how long the world has left.
In addition to displaying the current Doomsday time the app educates users on The Doomsday Clock by presenting the history behind the creation of this significant clock, and allows users to easily browse the previous recorded Doomsday times since the birth of the clock in 1947.
A Doomsday Clock application is extremely easy to use. Users just need to open the application and they instantly have a big, easy to read clock face and digital read out of the Doomsday clock face. The navigation bar at the bottom is easy to read and can be operated with only one hand leaving the other had free to secure the door on an underground bunker, or various other life preserving techniques that can be executed with the use of only one hand.
