=================== DEVELOPMENT STOPPED =====================
Sad... but it was clear to hear at sometime :(
Just for interest:
Are you successfully in developing for IOS, or did you give up the programming for mobile devices anymore?

Anyway, thanks for one of the greatest and vividly mobile Programs (should i call it now App?:p ) i ever seen ;)
Greetz Tokl

I had installed Android on my Touch Diamond, but the battery was draining as hell. I also bought an iPad 2 and is now confiscated by my family :rolleyes: I have developed in the past for Objective-C (15 years ago!). But for developing iOS application you need a Mac or Hackintosh. I had a Hackintosh running in a virtual machine, but actually I did not want to dive into iOS programming, because there are so many (free) Apps available, so why spent effort to have just another one :confused: And then you still have to pay yearly to develop for iOS and still need to go through the approval procedure of Apple. And also the battle between Android, iOS and Windows Phone is still not done.

Note that for my work we switched to use Silverlight for developing business applications. We know that Silverlight will disappear also over time and that probably HTML5/Javascript will be the future. So I made a Web application using HTML5 on iPad. That was working Ok. So my choice is to follow HTML5 developments and maybe make some small apps to get real insight in the Do's and Dont's.

The goal of me is to learn something which is useful for me, so that will not be programming specific for Android, iOS or Windows Phone. And also not the Mobile development platforms which do exists. I decided to focus on HTML5 only :eek:

I did not earn much with BattClock, especially when you take into account the numbers of hours spent, but I learned a lot and all the aspects of making a quality application on a Windows Mobile platform was a good experience. I thank everyone supporting me and for the donations I got. But now is the time to really stop development for Windows Mobile and focus on HTML5. I can spent my scarce free time only once, especially because I am developing software as a professional as a full time paid job. That is where I earn my money ;)

Hope you keep enjoying the *free* BattClock and if you also move away of Windows Mobile phone you will remember/miss BattClock as a very cool Swiss (oops, Dutch) Knife App :D
=================== DEVELOPMENT STOPPED =====================

People kept asking for the BattClock only of TouchLockPro or StylusLock, for people not wanting the locking solution. Here it is, the Standalone BattClock.
In the mean time BattClock has been grown into a swiss knife for your taskbar, possible of showing a lot of usefull information.

You can find *FREE* BattClock on touchlockpro.sourceforge.net

that's cause u were looking for the BattCock app.

The link should read:
http://www.zuinigerijder.com/BattClock.html

and:
"BattClock version 1.1 for all Windows Mobile phones" might be a wee bit too bold, cause it don't run on my Windows Mobile phone.

I can imagine that the default height/width is not correctly, but I would expect it should work on a large range of Windows Mobile phones. What phone type do you have and what is going wrong?

WM6.5 support?

i just tried it on 6.5.3 and the battery percentage gets cut off. So earlier builds may be fine but newer builds of WM (with the top bar a little narrower and the close softkey on the bottom taskbar) don't appear to work with this build.

Enable 12 hour format

Thanks very much, ZuinigeRijder. This is what I am looking for a long time.
With it, I can switch back to WM 6.1 from WM 6.5.3 (which has clock on top) for memory issue in my HTC Diamond.

One question: how can I change clock to 12 hour format?

By reading your guide for TouchLockPro, I tried to create registry entry under [HKCU\Software\ZuinigeRijder\LockSettings]:

Clock12=1

which did not work after Diamond was rebooted.

This is fantastic, it runs great on my Touch Pro 2 with WM 6.5. If I can make one request, I'd also love an option to use 12 hour time as oppose to 24 hour time. Thanks!

BattClock 1.1 is stil based on the StylusLock BattClock source code. I am planning to make BattCLock 1.2, which is based on TouchLockPro code base. This will give you more possibilities:
- only show time, battery percentage or date
- 12 hour clock
- datetime format
- fontsize
- indication if charging
- first time auto detect size of BattClock and colors, dependent of the screen resolution and colors of Taskbar

And probably a separate BattCLock configuration program, because editing registry keys is not so convenient.

You have to change sizes manually then, including the fontsize. However, the fontsize is not yet part of BattClock 1.1, so you have to wait for BattClock 1.2. Others, using TouchLockPro, can already change the BattClock, so it looks nice too on WM6.5.3

Hi,

I have a MotoQ Smartphone. Wm5. Battclock does not install. I never expected it to be able to run, so am only barely disappointed i cant run it.

Thanks!

I will check the cab. maybe it is set for ppc only?

Ok, here is the exe which you can copy to your phone and start manually, to see if it works. But probably you need some features of future BattClock 1.2, like fontsize and/or auto-detect screen resolution.

See attachment for the standalone BattClock without the need of CAB install. Unzip the BattCLock.zip and copy BattClock.exe to your phone.
