    Timefactors iOS App - UPDATED!

    A few of you might have noticed Eddie ask if anyone did App development several weeks back... well although we technically didn't it had been something we wanted to try out so after a quick chat with Eddie, a few weeks work and a week waiting for Apple to approve the app we are pleased to announce the official release of the Timefactors Watches (Clocks) app which is available in the App store right now :D





    Price: £0.59
    Category: Utilities
    Released: Sep 01, 2010
    Version: 1.0
    File Size: 4 Mb
    Language: English
    Seller: Maximum Designs Ltd.
    Requirements: Compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch. Requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later.

    Support Link: http://www.maximumdesigns.co.uk/ios/timefactors.asp

    Web Browser Link: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/timefact ... 50263?mt=8

    Description
    Now you can match the clock on your phone with the watch on your wrist, with this selection of clock designs based on the ever popular Timefactors watches. Enjoy Timefactors watches past and present with an extensive range of features such as a day / dusk / night lume settings and a selection of backgrounds.

    But we’re not finished there, we’re already working on the next version which will include a selection of movement options, fully functioning chronograph and even more choices for watches.

    All proceeds from this app are being donated to the Alexandra Bastedo ABC Animal Sanctuary (http://www.abcanimalsanctuary.co.uk/), a registered charity.

    ----------------------------
    Version 1.0
    Watch Options:
    PRS-2 Dreadnought
    PRS-8 Richmond Spencer
    PRS-18
    PRS-20 Italian
    PRS-20L Italian Full Lume
    PRS-22 Speedbird III
    PRS-29 Smiths
    PRS-50

    Lume Options:
    Day (Lume: 0% / Dial: 100%)
    Dusk (Lume: 50% / Dial: 20%)
    Night (Lume: 100% / Dial: 0%)

    Background Options:
    Default (Radial Grey)
    Black
    White
    Grey Weave

    Auto-Lock Disable:
    On / Off

    ----------------------------
    Updates currently in development:
    iPad Compatibility
    Movements Options
    Fully Functioning Chronograph
    Even More Timefactors Watch Designs

    Planned updates under review:
    Alarm Clock
    Custom/User Background Images
    Auto Lume Setting based on Time of day
    Shake Gesture Implementation

    Screenshots


    I'm really pleased with how this has come out, it looks absolutely stunning on the iPhone 4 Retina display (and of course the new iPod Touch now has the same display). We'll be working on the iPad Compatibility next week as it's not as simple as you think to get it working correctly there, despite being an iOS device!

    We are also working on the Android version, so those of you with those devices can also enjoy the app, hopefully within a couple of weeks.

    My company, Maximum Designs, were happy to provide the development of this App for FREE (it is, after all, our first app!) and all proceeds from sales will be donated to the Alexandra Bastedo ABC Animal Sanctuary (http://www.abcanimalsanctuary.co.uk/) a registered charity selected by Eddie :)

    Enjoy the app, please review it in the store as that makes it more likely for others to try it... and feel free to announce this anywhere you see fit!

    Cheers
    Jon

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    thanks jon. great work. 8) 8) 8) how easy / hard would it be to add a ( moveable ) 60 min diving bezel to some of those? that would be amazing
    Good luck everybody. Have a good one.

    We did consider including the bezel on some models but that changes the dynamics of it essentially being the dial & hands. Maybe we'll mock something up and see how it looks/works but we're likely to add a chrono function before that TBH.

    Thanks guys, do let me know if you come across any bugs or indeed have any suggestions for new features :)

  12. #12

    Re: Timefactors iOS App - NOW AVAILABLE!

    Just installed it and have fired up the Dreadnought as a desk clock. My first feature suggestion would be to allow the user to control the display brightness from the app, in the same way as iBooks does. That would mean I could leave it in screen lock disabled mode and alter the brightness to preserve battery life. My second would be to have it sync with an atomic clock somewhere.

    On the alarm clock feature, would that make use of iOS 4 local notifications?

    Re: Timefactors iOS App - NOW AVAILABLE!

    Excellent!

    Best wishes,

    Re: Timefactors iOS App - NOW AVAILABLE!

    Thanks, have downloaded to give it a whirl. My only feedback is that it would be great to have it sync with an atomic clock as others have said and put up the other watch models.

    That and also doing other os formats like Android, Blackberry, Nokia, etc.

    Great job :)

    Even better would be if it could sync with your wristwatch! :)

    Thanks for the feedback... we didn't even consider syncing it with anything other than the inbuilt time but now realise that can be as bad as a minute out! Will look into syncing options.

    Android version in progress, probably unlikely to be transferred to Blackberry/Nokia TBH.

    Re: Timefactors iOS App - NOW AVAILABLE!

    Just got it now, looks great.

    Unfortunately my only TF watch is a PRS-10, maybe that will come in the future.

    I found out the same when I downloaded the Atomic Clock app and was quite surprised to be honest, you'd have thought the phone's own clock would be more accurate.

    Get down to the app store (on iTunes) and buy this folks!
    The ABC Animal Sanctuary is a great cause to support!

    Not having an iphone is no excuse :-)

    Timefactors iOS App - NOW AVAILABLE!

    Nice work Jon.

    How easy would it be to make it a lockscreen app? Or does that option only exist on jailbroken phones?

    It would be good to have the watch displayed as your default login screen.

    Agree also with the brightness adjust and sync suggestions.

    Cheers
    Steve

    Lockscreen stuff is only on Jailbroken phones and that's not an area we're going to develop for in all honesty...

    Pity. Typical of Apple to cripple a delivery mode which can sustain some really useful functionality.

    Not yet but as you'll see in the "in development" section it will be an option in the next release... That said we'd all have to agree on what time of day we consider "dusk" and "night" to be ;)

    Thanks to all those who've downloaded so far, don't forget to leave a rating and review!!

    Re: Timefactors iOS App - NOW AVAILABLE!

    It's a good app, but it's the only app i've ever paid for, all other apps i have are freebies.

    I can see this leading to a slippery slope now, as already my talking cat has an ugraded Bakewell tart :shock:

    So thanks for that :roll: :D

    Jon,

    Unlike the actual watches the date wheels have zeroes before the single digits. You asked for the feedback....

    This is great fun!
