Friday Fun: The 'Art Clock'


A little bit garish, but offering a unique approach to displaying the time and weather on your iPad, Art Clock Van Gogh from Enclave Studios is our Friday Fun app this week.

You get a random combination of Van Gogh based art in the background, with random colours and 'artistic' fonts to display the time. There are thousands of combinations apparently which can be achieved by pinching, tapping and expanding the elements on the screen such as the background and time display.

The weather display is fairly comprehensive with temperature, wind speed / direction and humidity, as well as hand painted illustrations for cloud, fog, rain and even the Sun and Moon.

It is fun, but a little cluttered and sometimes a bit of an assault on the eyes in our opinion, but if you feel like brightening up your iPad while it is not in use, Art Clock Van Gogh will set you back $1.99 (£1.19) in the app store.

Let us know what you think?

Hey guys, thanks for posting this. I created Art Clock Van Gogh in a few spare weekends with Corel Painter. I understand how you feel about how some of the backgrounds/fonts can be excessive with all the competing colors.

There are a few more basic or plain backgrounds and fonts included like the white chalk and black/blue ink background. These can be directly selected in the Info panel with a visual table.

The goal was to make something different than the hundreds of other clock apps that just print the standard time in plain text. Hopefully it is also fun to use and customize.

Again, thanks for the post! Much appreciated!
