Fun Clock Phone Apps
I want to thank you for being a student and horology enthusiast. It really does mean a lot to me. As a horology instructor, connecting with my students is my number 1 priority – so feel free to email me back at firstname.lastname@example.org or through my website if you ever need to get in touch.
There are some free smart phone screen live wallpapers and a phone apps for the horology enthusiast. Most of these versions are free. There are paid versions that provide more features. I am not endorsing any of these apps or wallpapers and I have not tested them. They appear to be from a reliable source as they are directly from the Google Play Store and iTunes websites. I am only providing useful information that may be of interest to you. The iPhone app below does not have a free version. The links below will take you to the apps and live wallpapers. Some offer a video that demonstrate the app in action. You can read about them and decide if it is for you.
Clicking on the pictures below which will take you to the Google Play Store to view these applications.
