    Free binary clock by Phrehnck



    Well, while we are all waiting for stunning news, new OS leaks, or rumors about devices, why not focus a bit on the must have apps? So, here we go. Phrehnck, the author of such famous essentials, like shotGun, stormSaber, teslaBerry, and metroNome, to name just a few, did it again.

    Want to show the world how much a geek you are? Being able to read this? Well, it's 'just' a binary clock, but I am sure, most people will shake their heads when you can tell the time from this. OK, there is a way to cheat a bit. As shown in the picture above, when you press the berry button, it will tell you (a bit) how to do it by overlaying the white numbers. Upper left dot enabled is pm, top row from right to left: 1,2,4, 8 - all enabled dots to be summed up for the current hour, middle row for the minutes and bottom one for the seconds - so when the screen-shot was taken ...well, please help me out: 7 pm and...

    Too sad, that so far it cannot be enabled to replace you BB clock. If you want to try this free app, just point your BB browser here:

    That looks like a cool app, I may have to d/l this and mess with people..
    Have you ever wondered why things intended to make our lives simpler keep getting more complicated to use?

    When I am finished with calculating all the numbers, there is already a new result on I'm too old already for doing this fast calculus.

    I would love this app (provided it does not consume too much energy) as a regular clock replacement, combined with pattern lock to protect my berry from unauthorized use. Too sad, that I cannot create apps myself

    Start at the top for hrs, then min and bottom = secs.

    Go from right to left

    1st dot right = 1
    2nd = 2
    3rd = 4
    4th = 8
    5th = 16
    6th = 32

    e.g. top row: 1st dot = 1 o'clock (am or pm indicated by the top left dot)
    2nd = 2
    1st and 2nd = 1 + 2 = 3
    3rd = 4
    1st and 3rd = 1 + 4 = 5
    2nd and 3rd = 2 + 4 = 6
    1st, 2nd and 3rd = 1 + 2 +4 = 7
    4th = 8
    and so on
