There are some apps that really take advantage of SwiftUI and resemble something that Apple would do but with its own touch. “McClockface” iPhone and iPad app is one of those apps, serving as clock widget but with tons of customization.
McClockface is based on the retro flip clock design from back in the day. It uses the SwiftUI framework in Xcode to create silky-smooth digit flip animations that provide a simple-yet-beautiful design that’s perfect for a nightstand or whilst charging your iPhone, for example.
Created by indie developer David Steppenbeck, this app was created with iOS 14 in mind focusing on widgets. It displays the date, time, and other chronographic info at a glance with options to customize colors and time zones widget-by-widget.
Here are all the widgets available:
For the future, the developer of McClockface says he’ll create a Catalyst version of McClockface for the Mac. The app costs $1.99 and doesn’t need any other in-app purchases. Find it here on the App Store.
