Want Seconds on Your Lockscreen Clock? Try ‘ClockSeconds’

ClockSeconds is a recently released tweak that adds seconds to the clock on your iPhone’s lockscreen.

For those of you who are keen on customization, there’s also a settings panel added to your Settings app that allows you to modify the color of the clock’s numbers.

That’s great and all, but there is one major flaw that plagues ClockSeconds, rendering it a lot less practical. Check inside for the full lowdown on this jailbreak tweak’s shortcomings…


As you’ve no doubt gleaned from the video, ClockSeconds fails at the very thing that it’s supposed to be good at.

True, it adds seconds to your lockscreen clock, but those seconds are static, just like the minutes and hours. In other words, they don’t actually move like a second hand on a clock, you have to press the sleep button to refresh the seconds.

This discrepancy makes ClockSeconds fairly useless when it comes to timing, etc. It would have been nice if it featured a bit more stopwatch functionality.

The YouTube commentary minced few words when it came to their thoughts on ClockSeconds, and they were even able to recommend another tweak, Lock Seconds, that worked quite a bit better.

Have you tried ClockSeconds or any of its predecessors? Do you find that having seconds on your lockscreen makes it more useful? Let me know in the comments below.
