Since the keyboard disappearing issue has been resolved with the new ROM, it may be a good time to share the Tile World Clock Tool.

Features:

1. Pin the clock for any timezone you choose to your desktop
2. Clock will be updated every minute.
3. 8 different clock types to choose from.
4. Dynamic updated tile according to your theme.

Disclaimer: The clock on the tile may not be correct for various reasons. Please use the system clock for important times.

1. When background updating is working, the clock may delay for 1 minute.
2. When backgrond updating is not working for various reasions, for example, battery saving mode. The clock on the tile will stop.

2012.01.11: Update to 2.2. Minor update. The clock will be slightly more accurate (Delay within 5 seconds in my test)
2012.01.31: Update to 2.3. Supporting Wide Tile as requested. Require InterOp Unlock. This version may not be very stable at this moment. Is this the first Home Brew that supports dynamic wide tile?


Help Needed: Is there any good code who can save PNG file with low footprint and high quality?
2012.02.29: Found a really memory efficient PNG encoder. Now it is time to continue my development.

2012.03.14: Update to 2.5. More customization options available. You can even choose a picture from your library as background.

2012.03.22: Added a slightly updated new 2.5 XAP. Changed a few background images. Fixed a bug so that two line style Time/Date is correctly displayed at center.

Thumbs up
For me it took around 5-6 (sometimes around 10) minutes to update the tile, with background tasks running. Nothing can be done i guess.


But an awesome app, nonetheless.

Thanks

Very Nice App. I had no issues in time update with background update turned on. We also did a video review on wpxbox http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBoreopVpuk

I will suggest you to give user option to how often they want to which can be anything between one minute to 30 minutes.

A bit more but you can think of combining reminders with each tile so it triggers them in that time zone.

Thanks for the review.

Is there anyone interested in a clock that can delay upto 30 minutes?

As for the reminder, I think counting down and time ellapsed/stop watch could be good ideas.

That's good suggestions that I should take. Unfortunately, I am not so good at UI designing. If you have more specific suggestions, pleaes let me know.

Delay till 30 minutes can be only suitable for one set of time, When I get to sleep. Saves Battery. Please do correct me if I am wrong.

If you could make the tile look the the HTC sense flip clock this would get a gazillion downloads :P especially if it does update properly every minute

In my app, this won't happen. I mentioned this in response to your suggestion to allow user to select how frequent they could update the clock.
