We have to admit we had yet to purchase one app from the iTunes shop for either of our 3G iPhone or the iPod Touch. Strange to spend so much on these devices and yet we're frugal (cheap?) about spending the money to purchase an app. No longer! We use the Touch in bed as a complimentary browsing tool, to snooze to tunes while we drift off to la-la land, and to control our Apple TV and iTunes with. But we we've found an app worth the .99 cents (with some caveats)...
If you remember our fun roundup of best looking free screensavers
, you'd surely remember the Flip Clock Fliqlo
, an ode to the ever classic flip clock design. Developer Larva Labs has now brought the same Flip Clock design
for the iPhone or your Touch, making for a stylish bedside clock alternative. Perfect for us since the Touch almost never leaves the house and sits next to the bed. The large number display sure beats our cheap-o Sony, 1990's style drug store special; pair this up with a nice iPhone stand
and you've got a minimal modern clock (or how about wood
?). The one feature missing from this app that would make it a killer bedside app? An alarm...we'd pay $1.99...maybe even $3.99 for that additional feature.
