Digital Clock Icon Top

Digital Clock Icon is a new jailbreak tweak that does one thing: it changes the stock analog Clock app icon to that of a digital clock. But that’s not all. Along with the digital clock, you get an altimeter and a date reading. Digital Clock Icon may be a simple jailbreak tweak, but given its looks and feature-set, it’s sure to find users who value what it brings to the table.

Once you install the tweak, there are no options to setup or configure. In fact, there isn’t even a preference panel for the tweak to be found in the stock Settings app.

After respringing post installation, you’ll notice that the stock analog clock has been replaced with a clock of the digital variety. Above the clock’s time readout, you’ll find a current date reading—a feature that’s handy for those of you who choose to remove the stock Calendar app icon from the Home screen.

Oddly enough, you’ll also find a digital altimeter below the time readout. The altimeter reads the current altitude of your iPhone, and presents a readout to correspond to its current height. It’s a real-working meter, as you can see from our tests in the video above.

Digital Clock Icon may seem simple in nature, but I think it has enough features to warrant a strong look. Especially since it’s a free jailbreak tweak on the BigBoss repo.

Would you consider using it?

  • It’s a great option, but aesthetically not pleasing.

      seems like designing is not his forte. kudos for the idea though.

  • Needs to be a 12 hour and not a 24 hour clock

  • Choice of skins would make it better.

    I think it looks really cool.
    But it doesn´t work with Aeternum.
    Anyone knows a solution?

    Need to be able to change the calendar to having it as day/month instead of that odd way the US have of medium/small/large (Month/Day/Year).

    Hey Jeff 🙂 I have a question: Why does your show you an available OTA update? Your iPhone 6+ is jailbroken, so how is it possible to receive an OTA update suggestion? I used to remember the times on iOS 5, when I had to install a tweak (called “Software Update Killer” on BB) that made me unable to (accidentally) install these updates. But since iOS 7 the iPhone does not check for updates no more, hence it says “Checking for Update …” all the time.

      The notification came up before he jailbroke. Now he has the alerts stuck on there. I had the same problem happen to me a couple times. You can fix it in ifile.

  • What is that „146M” on the bottom of the icon? It is changing, but I don’t understand what is that.
    Edit: sorry, I did’t read carefully. It’s an altitude meter.

    I like how you write “it does one thing:” then follow it up with “but that’s not all.” Lol

    Why not the option for a 12 hour clock?
