Definitely a waste of money. Every time I use the app, it dims the brightness of my iPad to the point of barely being able to see anything. The fact that the time and day on the icon are not current defeats the purpose. I had hoped to use it with my elderly dad.

Developer Response ,

With 3.0 the brightness feature has been removed (although you could adjust it and it remembered it afterwards) in favor to the control center version.

In terms of updated app icon: Prior to iOS 14 there wasn't a way to do this. If you replace the icon with its widget on you home screen with 3.0 this now is finally possible. Please give it another try.

Has worked well for years -- simplicity triumphs

This is the only clock I've found that does what I need. Each night, I put it on my night stand, and it shows me the time -- and day and date -- with a simple, classy Helvetica-like display -- easily dimmed or brightened. Double-tapping orients it if necessary. Yes, you need to make it brighter before you switch apps. On the other hand, it is just right for quickly adjusting your screen brightness without menu-ing through Settings. All this is enough for me. I like, I need it. Simplicity beats overloaded functionality every night at my house.

Simple yet Elegant & Classy

I appreciate that this clock also displays the date and time.

Some people have complained about the app icon not being a live clock. They do not understand that an app developer can only use a static image as an app icon.

The Apple clock icon does show the actual time, but it does not open to a full screen clock which is the purpose of Big Cloch HD.
