So last week I promised myself to learn Objective C and Xcode. This is my first attempt to make something useful in my new favorite programming language. It's really hard to get started, but when you get the idea - everything becomes awesome. Want a date formatted for your users language, in a special way; no problem, 1 line of code!
Most of the assets are a revamp of something I made a few years ago with a clear reference to the Braun AB1 Clock (but we've seen Apple do the same with the calculator right).
Take a look at the attachment for the full screenshot. This is just to get my feet wet (everything coded and exported tonight) - nothing special; but let me know what you think anyway.

So awesome, can’t wait to use it on my iPad!
Thank you. I still need to make the view for the iPad though - but that should be easy :)
Outstanding Mate!! Love to check out the app when its done :)

Michael Flarup made a great point on twitter yesterday. He thought we should have dribbblers design their own clock face, and include it in my new application clOck for customization.
The application will be submitted as a free app, and you will be credited with website & name. I learn to code cocoa, and you get your own iPhone clock on your desk.
So this is a call out to all of you designers out there.
Download the template, start pushing some pixels. To submit just do this:
1. Edit the Smart Objects within the template and keep the sizes intact.
2. Rebound this shot with a preview of your clock face
3. Attach the PSD with your replaced assets for easy export.
4. Include your details: Name, website, clock face name
All layers are editable; they just need to be the same size.
I strive to have the first build finished within the next 14 days. So let us have the first deadline: February 14th 2012

I might add a Digital Clock Template later.

Time is ticking - and I still have a lot to code. But I finally figured out how to use nice plist files as a datasource. I am getting more in love with Objective-C for every line I type.
I still need to figure out how to set my data before I remove my view (like what I do on the done button)
Here's a quick demo of the current progress:
You should put "brown" instead of braun (for legal issues) on top of quartz. At least mine has that.
A lot of progress! I added support for in-app-twitter, in-app-email, theme selection, new themes, date colors, date fonts - and a lot more :)
Check out the video.
I think it's so great that so many Dribbblers have joined this project! Thank you all very much!
I've been working a little bit on the website tonight. Have a look, and let me know what you think. I made a twitter account also, if you like that sort of thing :)
Remember to flip the clock-face :)
The text is also still a work in progress. I plan to feature some of the designers on the website - with some screenshots; and list the ones who are interested :)
So what is all this fuss about the app taking longer than expected? Well dear Dribbblers, the projected evolved into something bigger. I've been exporting your awesome themes like a madman, and along the way I figured that it was not reasonable to include everything in the app - as the file would be huge.
So this is what is happening:
Nicholas Eby added support for iClock files. You will be able to import your theme inside iClock. More on that below.
I am building a hub where you can share your themes on the iClock website, called iClock Central. There will also be a nice rating system in place.
We are also building a iPad editor for you designers to create your own themes, on device. From here you will be able to export your theme, or submit it to iClock Central.
I hope you feel the magic, I certainly do.
Visit the website and share the word
Just something I've been working on. Move along.
See the attachment for color variations.
Just teasing. Playing around with a few ideas. Elements are missing, and nothing is final - this is just to get an idea of where we are heading :)
Working on the serverside stuff for iClock Central - the theme browser / download manager for iClock. All html / css.
I might style it to something else - but I wanted a standard iOS storefront theme to begin with.
Works pretty damn sweet.
