    Weather Forecast

    Additionally, Grid Clock can display the weather condition at your current location. So it’s a perfect addition with the displayed time. The weather Pro module shows even a forecast for the next five days.

In 2011 I've been thinking about a more graphical view of time. Especially for mobile devices which have a rect display. But in those days I still could not solve the reasonable arrangement of 24 hours and 60 minutes on a rectangular area. There were tons of scribbles, but no satisfactory solution. The idea I put aside again.
Showers! In the shower I noticed the solution of the problem: The circle in the center corresponds to the globe, so to say. Now I was able to distinguish between AM and PM. That same day I reported to the iTunes app store and reserved the domain. First programmatic approaches has been taken 2011, but by then the core idea actually has been an alarm clock. Nevertheless, some ideas facilitated the internal time calculation of graphic entities.
A clock? A graphically appealing clock seemed a little too simple. So I decided at the outset to integrate in my opinion the most important additions to time display: play music, show title and artwork, as well as a weather forecast. Admittedly, are all elements displayed at once, so the graphic simplicity is gone. However every user can decide for themselves and thus customize its own Grid Clock.
I want to deal with it point-blank: the app is free in the essential functions. This gives the opportunity to get to know Grid Clock. But where work is, a rewarding performance is justified: A minimal amount is due and payable for the activation of the pro-modules. One would like to use everything, so you can buy all modules at once for a small amount. Buying any pro-module will remove ads as well.
