Gravity Clock 2.0 - Watching the Time Pass
May 2, 2011 in Lifestyle
[prMac.com] Vienna, Austria - Independent developer Jorg Piringer has released a new version of the unique Gravity Clock app today. Available for download from the Apple App Store, this update adds a tweet viewer, a snooze mode and numerous usability improvements.
Gravity Clock combines a physics simulator with a minimalistic clock design to create the 21st century successor of an hour glass. It not only shows the current time but also visualizes the passage of time in a tangible way by the permanent destruction and reconstruction of the clock face.
Every second the hand breaks numbers out of the dial and lets them drop to the floor where they get buried by the following numbers and eventually wither away to make room for the endless succession of time. Gravity Clock 2.0 adds Gravity Tweets the tweet visualizer that reacts to gravity.
