So this is turning back the pages of time when we had just started out. The Thermo Clock Android App was probably our very first venture into app development. We wanted to test the waters as they say.
The idea of the app came while looking at the various methods to depict time besides the standard format (analog and digital). We basically had to show a quantity variation and decided to use the stardard thermometer as our guide.
Thermo Clock Android App
Taking the standard mercury thermometer, we assigned every hour as the number and added divisions within the hour. Four divisions of 15 mins or Twelve divisions every five minutes, that was left for the user to choose.
Initially its a greyed out number, then gradually the ‘mercury’ inside it rises which shows the passage of time. Half the number filled meant it is half an hour past, a quarter filled means 15 minutes had passed and so on.
The concept was to find a rather relaxing method to track time. (inspired by the Pomodoro technique). Just a simple timer – Set the time and you get an alarm at the end of it, that’s it. A timer that keeps you away from distractions.
The Thermo Clock was primarily aimed as an Android timer. We were going through our old work and thought to check if the idea resonated with anyone out there. Do let us know if you guys think it’s worth pursuing.
Damn, all this just takes us back to the start…(ala coldplay)
