Our Apps

Here’s a brief overview of each of our Apps – arranged by the date they were released (with the newest at the top).

TheWorldClock

TheWorldClock keeps track of the time in your friends’ & colleagues’ part of the world so you don’t have to. Add multiple clocks displaying different time zones and personalise them by renaming them to something more meaningful – like a friend, relative or client, so you’ll always know the best time to get in touch.

Just tap on an empty space to add a clock, choose a location and then (optionally) an alternate name for the clock. Tap on the clock again to edit these settings or delete the clock.

You can tell at a glance whether it’s a good time to get in touch or not – if a clock is white it’s daytime, black it’s night.

Relative time – TheWorldClock also helps with those tricky time zones by telling you if it’s today, tomorrow or yesterday.

Personalise locations – by necessity, apps of this nature only list major cities but WorldClock lets you find a city in any time zone and rename it with something more local. Why get stuck with New York, London, Paris, Munich when you can have Hoboken, Croydon, Calais, Frankfurt?

 

Saving Grace – Travel Packing Aid

Need help with what to pack on your next holiday? Saving Grace by Grace Hotels is a packing check list and reminder tool all in one. Designed to cut the stress of packing.

The app has pre-set lists for different trip types – winter, summer, activity holiday or a short break. Activities include specific lists for surfing, cycling, golf, diving, fishing, camping etc. You can personalise your lists by swiping to delete individual items or categories or use the ‘Edit’ button to delete multiple things at once. Of course you can add any new items that we might have forgotten. Use your lists again or start from scratch. You decide.

Saving Grace makes packing easier by showing you not only how many items you’ve already packed, but also how many are left to pack in each category. Just tap an item to move it into your ‘packed’ list. The app also features a readymade list of important stuff to do before you travel – from travel insurance to currency to watering your plants and emptying your fridge! Tap a task when it’s completed to cross it off your list with a satisfying sound effect.

If you’ve got a holiday or short break coming up, there’s no excuse not to give it a try – Saving Grace

RandomPlay

Random playlists have never been so much fun

RandomPlay creates unique interactive visual playlists on your iPhone or iPod touch. It looks deceptively simple but has some hidden depths (much like the members of Chilli X).

Upon launch you’ll see a random selection of 12 tracks from your music library laid out in a grid and the first song will start to play. When it finishes it will be replaced by another so you won’t have to keep refreshing your visual playlist.

RandomPlay is ideal for those times when you’re not sure what you want to listen to but want to have more control than just telling your iPod to shuffle all songs. It looks great and works well with speaker docks and hi-fi systems. The screen stays on so it’s easy to see not just what’s playing but also what’s coming up. Plus, it’s just great fun to play with!

Play/Pause – just tap the cover of the song that’s playing to pause it or tap another cover to play that track instead.

Delete tracks – double tap any song you don’t want to hear and it will be replaced by another.

Song info - the artist and song title of the currently playing track are displayed at the bottom of the screen. If you’re not sure exactly what songs are queued up to be played, you can tap and hold any cover to pop up a window displaying the info for that track.

Shake to Shuffle – if you don’t like the look of any of the tracks RandomPlay has chosen, just shake the device to replace all 12 with another random selection.

RandomPlay tries to look good, so will only choose tracks with cover artwork, and because we think it works best with music, RandomPlay will also try to filter out your podcasts and audiobooks.

World Cup Countdown

World Cup Countdown will display how much time is left until kick off

The timer accurately counts down the exact time until kick-off

To celebrate the forthcoming 2010 World Cup we’ve teamed with South Africa Tourism to bring you our latest free app for the iPhone & iPod touch, World Cup Countdown, the official World Cup App of South Africa, the host nation.

World Cup Countdown counts down the days, minutes, hours and seconds until the kick off of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. As well as the timer feature, World Cup Countdown also acts as a digital photoframe displaying a series of beautiful images of South Africa. Clicking on the pictures will give you more information about the scenes you’ve been looking at or even show you a video clip or audio track.

World Cup Countdown also acts as a digital clock by clearly displaying the time and date beneath the photo.

TimeDevice 01

TimeDevice 01 – shake to change the color

TimeDevice 01 is the first iPhone app in a collaboration between Chilli X and internationally renowned designer, illustrator and typographer, Rian Hughes.

Rian brings his love of type and color to this unique designer clock. The hour and minutes are displayed in a bold black font while the seconds display darkens slowly over the course of a minute.

The background color can be left to change automatically, in which case it slowly fades through the spectrum, or manually – just shake the phone to select a random color.

Juiced

Juiced. Tapping the screen toggles the more detailed info on and off

Juiced. Tapping the screen toggles the more detailed info on and off

When you launch Juiced you’ll see your battery fill with the mysterious glowing fluid that powers your iPhone. As it drains away the color changes from green through orange to red and the glow slowly fades.

Put it on charge and watch your battery pulse with an electric blue glow as the fluid starts to fill up.

Juiced shows you as much or as little battery info as you need. The beautifully rendered graphics accurately reflect the remaining battery charge. Tap anywhere to toggle a more detailed overlay (lines and numbers) so you can see exactly how much juice you’ve got.

Rotate the screen for the landscape view which gives you a much more detailed breakdown of what this percentage actually means to you in terms of: Talk time, Standby time, Internet use, Audio playback & Video playback.

PlaySafe

PlaySafe - listen to your iPod safely when driving

PlaySafe – listen to your iPod safely when driving

PlaySafe is designed to make using your iPhone or iPod touch easier to operate when driving (and therefore safer). We’ve made the whole screen one giant button so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road and search for tiny icons. You can easily control your music with simple finger gestures without even looking at the screen! Just tap anywhere on the screen to start or stop the music or swipe sideways to skip to the next or previous tracks.

Just tap anywhere on the screen to start or stop the music or swipe sideways to skip to the next or previous tracks.
If you do decide to sneak a look at the screen you won’t be disappointed – PlaySafe looks great too. It’s minimal interface leaves plenty of room for your cover artwork to shine. Touching the screen causes huge on-screen icons to fade in and out so you can tell at a glance what you’re doing. The track information is displayed in a large font which intelligently scales so you won’t have to squint. PlaySafe looks great even if you don’t have any album cover art – the default display looks better than some of the covers in our collections anyway.Just tap anywhere on the screen to start or stop the music or swipe sideways to skip to the next or previous tracks.

StarTime

StarClock

StarTime – boldly going where no iPhone clock has gone before

Chilli X, in collaboration with LCARS Computer Network, are proud to present StarTime, a date and time clock to keep you on time in your trek from star to star.

StarTime displays the time and date in a large easy-to-read display on your iPhone or iPod touch. Authentic animations and sounds will make you feel like you’re on the bridge of your favorite Starship.

StarTime overrides your auto-lock setting so your phone won’t automatically go to sleep making it ideal as a desk clock when your device is on charge or even a night stand clock using the built-in dimmer function.

The sounds can be set to play randomly, to chime on the hour or switched off all together. You can also choose to listen to music from your iPod while StarTime is running.

P.A.C – Playlist Alarm Clock

P.A.C. go to sleep and wake up listening to your favorite tunes

P.A.C. go to sleep and wake up listening to your favorite tunes

Playlist Alarm Clock lets you create two playlists of songs from your iPhone or iPod touch – one to go to sleep with and one to wake up with.
You can build your own playlists within  P.A.C. by adding individual songs but it’s probably easier to create 2 new playlists in iTunes – something nice & relaxing to lull you off to sleep and something a little bit more energetic to wake you with a smile. Then you can easily add all the songs in one go.
Just tap on the Sleep or Wake areas of the screen and the panels will slide open, switching those functions on and allowing you to set up your playlists and configure your options.
Sleep: choose your playlist then decide how long it will take for the music to fade out. You can choose as many songs as you like. If you only choose a few songs to listen to, P.A.C will simply repeat them as required for the duration of the time you’ve specified.
The progress bar shows at a glance the time period you’ve chosen and how far through it you are.
Wake: set the time you want to wake up and how long you want the music to fade in for this time in seconds rather than minutes). You can also choose to activate the snooze function.
You can use P.A.C however you like: to listen to music as you go to sleep and/or as an alarm clock or just a night stand clock. It’s easy to see which features are turned on or off at a glance.
Note: P.A.C doesn’t make copies of your songs – it just references them in your iPod library, so if you delete the songs from your phone, P.A.C won’t be able to find them. That’s why it’s a good idea to create a couple of playlists specially for P.A.C.

NightTime Plus

NightTime Plus – huge, easy to read display

Size matters – quite simply, NightTime Plus is the biggest and best looking digital clock in the App Store. The huge numbers are easy to read even from across the room.

Shout to snooze alarm – no fiddling about looking for a tiny button to silence the alarm – NightTime Plus offers three ways to snooze (or stop) your alarm. Just tell it to be quiet and it will snooze for your pre-set time, give the phone a gentle shake or simply tap the full screen buttons.

Any color you like – not only can your numbers can be any color you want, NightTime Plus also has the unique abilty to add textures to the colors to create a truly personalized display.

Why do you need to know the exact time?

AboutTime tells you ‘about what time it is‘ featuring beautifully rendered typography on a light parchment background. AboutTime is bright during the day and dark at night so you’ll always know if it’s day or night. It makes an ideal (and unusual) bedside clock. As well as telling the time in a unique and unconventional way, you can flip the pages to reveal entertaining quotes and musings on the nature of time itself.

MyCal

You can create as many calendar wallpapers as you like and even share them with friends. You could even switch the calendar off and just use this as a collection of original wallpaper designs.

PhotoFrame: Wild!

PhotoFrame: Wild!

PhotoFrame: Wild!

PhotoFrame: Wild! is a special, limited edition version of Chilli X’s popular PhotoFrame app. This version is populated with some spectacular wildlife photography courtesy of Shamwari – voted the world’s leading game reserve for eleven consecutive years.

PhotoFrame: Wild! also acts as a digital clock by clearly displaying the time and date beneath the photo. PhotoFrame: Wild! overrides your auto-lock setting so your slideshow will continue for as long as you wish. This makes it ideal to keep running while your device is docked and on charge.

Other settings allow you to vary the length of time each picture is displayed and select either 12 or 24 hour time display. PhotoFrame: Wild! has a very clean, simple interface – just tap on the clock area of the screen to access the settings screen.

Done

Done - all your important tasks on your startscreen

Done – all your important tasks on your startscreen

Done is an innovative task manager with some unique features that make it easy and more importantly, enjoyable to use.

We’ve taken advantage of the iPhone’s abilities to create a To Do list like no other:

Shake to sort - shake your phone and your list is automatically sorted – important items at the top, completed ones at the bottom.

Wallpaper – Done has a unique ‘SnapShot’ feature which captures your most important tasks and saves them to your Camera Roll so that you can set them as your wallpaper. This means that every time you turn your phone on you can see what needs doing at a glance – without even starting the application!

Landscape mode - rotate the phone 90 degrees to access the powerful delete function – pressing a button has never been so satisfying.

Sound effects – checking items off, sorting lists and deleting items are all accompanied by pleasing sound effects.

Done gets the balance just right – not too simple – not too complex. There’s no contexts, tags, locations or due dates – just beautiful prioritised lists of things to do. The intuitive user interface means there’s no learning curve – you can get started instantly.

Done is the next best thing to having iCal’s To Do list in your pocket.

Prank BioScanner

BioScanner - scan your friends and control the result

BioScanner – scan your friends and control the result

BioScanner allows you to ’scan’ your friends (or enemies!) and reveal interesting facts about them. Are they Hot or Not? Are they a Dude or a Loser? Just point your phone at them and press the big red scan button, the program will locate them and do a full body scan then declare it’s result. The fun part is that you control the result by tilting the phone to the left or right – your friends will never know how you’re doing it.

The great thing is that you can customize the words used depending on the situation and person you are scanning to give a truly personalised result.

Mistletoe

Mistletoe – Jingle bells and a kiss. What more could you want?

Better luck next time!

Chilli X’s Mistletoe has the following advantages over real mistletoe:

• the berries will not squish in your pocket

    Wow nice guide for iphone. Thanx. Really interesting

  5. Avi Says:

    I just got the deskclock and I love it, simple, clean and does what I need it to do. One little request though, since I use it as a night clock as well it would be great to have a dimming feature.

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Avi

      thanks for the feedback – so far you’re the only person to ask for dimming in DeskClock! We’ve had a few requests for for alarms and Calendar event integration (pretty tricky) but none for dimming – we’ll add it to the list :)

      In the meantime, both NightTime and NightTime Plus are intended as night clocks and have a dimming feature – NightTime is free (so there’s no excuse) and but NightTime Plus is much cooler with adjustable colours and a voice controlled alarm feature – shout at it to turn it off (great fun)

  6. Glenn Says:

    if you could create an alarm when my tasks are due, I will buy your app immediately. I have a very busy schedule and I need more than a list. Please create this feature as it is the “standout” opportunity waiting to happen. When you create it, notify me and I’m buying the app!!

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Glenn

      thanks for the request – we’d love to do add an alarm feature to Done but unfortunately Apple don’t allow that on the iPhone – only with their own apps (which seems a bit unfair)

      Once you’ve quit out of an app or turned the phone off it’s effectively dead and can’t do anything until it’s live again so we could only set off an alarm if the iphone was on and Done was running – not much use…

      we’re looking at ways round this with the next version of the iPhone OS (v 3.0) which is out soon but it’s still unsure exactly how we could achieve it…

  7. Brian Says:

    NightTime Plus is the best bedside clock.
    And I like the new ‘shout to snooze’ feature. But the sound does not wake me up man. Its too low and its a awful sound, I cant hear it.
    Why cant i pick what sound i want too wake up to?
    Like u can with the built in alarm on the iphone.

    Also if i run the built in alarm with NightTime Plus
    The shout to snooze feature does not work.

    I hope yous can sort this out.

    Brian

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Brian

      thanks for the feedback – sorry NT+ isn’t loud enough to wake you. We’ll add some new sounds soon and do an update – we can’t access the built in alarm sounds on the phone because Apple doesn’t allow it.

      I’m afraid the shout to snooze feature in NT+ won’t work with anything other than it’s own alarm – it isn’t listening for a sound until it knows it’s alarm is going (if that makes sense).

      Part of the problem with choosing an alarm sound for NT+ is that it has to have large gaps in the sound. If you think about it it makes sense – the phone can’t listen for a sound if it’s already making a sound – it will just hear itself and turn off!

  8. Travis Says:

    Just bought the PhotoFrame app and notice that it only works in portrait mode. While this works for me at home, where my dock is, I’ve got a paperclip stand at the office to hold it in landscape mode. I see many of the “other” picture frame apps have landscape modes – why not PhotoFrame?

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Travis

      when we first developed PhotoFrame there weren’t so many options for docks and stands as there are now so a landscape mode didn’t seem that important – but we’ve had a few requests for it now so we’re planning for a future update. Watch this space!

    • lrdnitecon Says:

      I agree im in for landscape mode. my phone always sits on its side on my desk. looking forward to the update. great app though

  9. tpromix Says:

    When are you going to make a desktop companion for Done… You guys could run circles around THINGS if you had a desktop sync….

  10. iAndy Says:

    Would it be possible to integrate some sort of online syncing with Done? Desktop sync would also be good, but online syncing is an almost must. Either via someone’s MobileMe account, your own website or perhaps using one of the many available free online services such as Toodledo to synchronise. This would help both the iPhone and any future Mac desktop clients sync too.

    Far too often a person is away from their computer when they are ticking off to do lists, so a desktop sync becomes less useful, making online syncing far more practical. If Done had this feature I would definitely buy it (I currently use To-Do which has Toodledo integration)

  11. Josean Says:

    Recently, I got NT Plus and Desk Clock. Great apps!! I find you are really made a great job with a unique style, simple, funtional and excellent graphic design! But how about simultaneos play-back support for desk clock and maybe an alarm built in feature?

    Keep Up! Saludos 2the staff

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Josean

      If you mean you want to playback music from the iPod while DeskClock is running then you can already can – try it! If this isn’t what you mean then let us know and we’ll try and help…

      As for an alarm feature in DeskClock – currently that would only work if DeskClock was actually running due to the restrictions in the way apps are allowed to work and we think that would just confuse and frustrate people. You could set you alarms using Apple’s Clock app and they’d go off whether DeskClock was running or not!

  12. Sander Says:

    Hi! I’ve just purchased PhotoFrame and so far loving it!
    Now I’ve made a couple of albums for pictures to use. Would it be possible in a future update to make it easier to add a bunch of pictures / a whole album at once instead of one-by-one. That way it’s much easier to change between different albums.

    Thanks!

    Sander

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Sander

      Thanks for the feedback. When we originally thought up PhotoFrame the ideas was to just let users choose an album of their favourite photos unfortunately we discovered you can’t do that with the current Apple Software Dev Kit. The only option was to pick them one at a time.

      We were hoping Apple might have fixed that in the soon-to-be-released version 3.0 but it doesn’t look like it… Maybe it will sneak in as a last minute change?

      • Sander Says:

        Thanks for your answer!

        Maybe it is possible then to save different configurations? That way you still can make different looking clocks very easy because you have to alter eacht configuration only once! (like a family/girlfriend clock for at home, and an art clock for at work)

  16. Pauhana658 Says:

    Bought PhotoFrame some time ago. Quite nice, but I always felt that it would be vastly more useful if it had alarm functions. So I use Relax Alarm for waking up.

    Now I see that you’ve release Playlist Alarm Clock, which has all (and more) of the alarm functions I need and would make a nice alternative to Relax Alarm. But I’m somewhat surprised that PAC doesn’t raise the bar for desktop/nightstand applications by including PhotoFrame functions! That would really set PAC apart from the rest.

    A further refinement: Photos are displayed while your sleep playlist is playing, and then when the last song fades out, the photos also fade out, leaving just the clock at full-screen size for middle-of-the-night reference. In the morning, when the wake-up song list starts playing, the photos could fade in.

    Just an idea…

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Pauhana

      Thanks for the feedback and great ideas! We’re definitely looking at adding new features to P.A.C in the future and we like the sound of some of those…

  17. Pedro Says:

    I bought Playlist Alarm Clock and let me say that I was never so disappointed with an application that I paid for…
    You cannot control the sleep and the wake up volume. The application it’s really slow, if you select a big playlist it is almost impossible to use. It is not possible to wake or sleep with podcasts and the application does not shuffle the playlist you choose, it allways start with the first music on the list.
    I would like to know if there is any possibility to have my money back.

    Thanks

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Pedro

      thanks for the feedback and sorry to hear that you’re unhappy with Playlist Alarm Clock, but there’s some good news and bad news.

      First the bad news – Apple don’t provide a facility for us as developers to issue refunds – you’d have to take it up with them. They are effectively the shop you bought it from.

      But the good news – hopefully you won’t feel the need for a refund. We’re working hard to fix all the issues you mention. An update to fix the volume problem has already been submitted and will go live as soon as Apple approves it. We’re also implementing a shuffle feature, night mode etc.

      We’re determined to make this the best of it’s kind on the iPhone.

      As for the problems you mention with big playlists – how many songs are in your list? We used some pretty big lists during testing and didn’t see any problems. Please let us know…

      In the meantime you could consider creating specific playlists for P.A.C as suggested in the help notes.

      Again, apologies for your disappointment but rest assured we’re doing all we can to make P.A.C perfect

  18. Bart Says:

    I just bought Nightime Plus after trialling the free version, but wanted the landscape view, so ponied up the 99c!
    I’m using on my work desktop as it charges.

    I then figured I wanted to know the date too and then found your desktop app here…so my request is a choice :
    1. Can you add the date to the Nighttime plus product or
    2. Add a Landscape view for the Desktop app?

    I’ve kind of wasted 99c and if you follow option 2 will drop another 99c but if it solves a problem…

    I recent tried “PhotoFrame: Wild!” and really liked it, so I bought Phototframe to add my own pictures. Strangely, the paid for veriosn of phototframe does not have the nice curling page transition of the free version. Is there an update comming to add that?

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Steve

      We were/are using PhotoFrame: Wild! as a bit of a test bed for the main PhotoFrame so, yes, the idea is bring transitions to PhotoFrame itself soon… but you’re the only person that’s actually noticed!

  21. Rob Lewis Says:

    I’m going crazy. I got NightTime Plus a couple of days ago. I thought it had an alarm function but couldn’t find it. Then I let my kid play with my iPhone and he somehow accidentally brought up the alarm set function. I still can’t find it! Aargh!

    What’s the secret for setting an alarm in NT+? And why is it so well hidden?

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Rob

      sorry you’re having problems finding the alarm – we haven’t tried to hide it (honest).

      Just tap on the alarm symbol in the bottom right hand corner of the screen to bring up the alarm settings.

      Note – if the phone is in landscape mode click in the top right corner – we forgot to move the hot spot (will be fixed in an upcoming update)

  22. Seth Says:

    Hi,

    I really like DeskClock, but I’d like to make a suggestion (which would apply to some of your other apps as well): when in 24-hour time, there shouldn’t be “AM” or “PM” visible since these are redundant; there’s no such thing as 14:40 PM.

    Thanks!

  23. cj Says:

    Hi guys, I LOVE the Playlist Alarm Clock app– it’s something I have wanted for years, especially the fade-in aspect of the alarm. There’s only one problem that I can’t seem to figure out: the wake-up alarm is unreliable. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, even with all the same settings. Is there a trick that I haven’t figured out?

  24. sean Says:

    Hiya,
    Just bought the desk clock but thought it came with a landscape version. Any plans to add that? thanks.

  25. chillix Says:

    Hi Sean

    We’re going to try and give all our apps landscape and portrait versions eventually – in the meantime you could try NightTime Plus which has a nice landscape mode…

  26. Mary Cole Says:

    I just bought PlaySafe, and I’m wondering why the gestures for going to the next and previous songs are opposite from what seems intuitive? (Is the developer a leftie? :) I think this will bother me.

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Mary

      Thanks for the feedback. We weren’t sure which direction we should go with for the swiping but decided in the end to use the same swipes you’d use in the iPod coverflow view ie. you imagine all your albums lined up from left to right and you swipe from the right to the left to get to the next one.

      Anyway, that’s why! If it’s an issue with people we’ll have to add an option to switch.

      What does everybody else think?

  27. David Lewis Says:

    I am using DONE. It would be great if you could reorder items in the lists in the same that you can reorder the master list.

  28. Joel Says:

    Been using PlaySafe, and it’s pretty cool, but I wish it would simply control iTunes, instead of requiring me to select songs in the app. I wish there was an option to do just that. I would find it much easier to go to iTunes, choose a playlist and start playing, then fire up PlaySafe to control it after that. How update an update? :)

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Joel

      I see what you mean and it’s a nice idea. I’m not sure it’s feasible with the way that PlaySafe is coded at the moment as it would require iTunes to be able to write info to PlaySafe’s playlist, but we’ll certainly look into it.

  29. Dale Says:

    Hi, have a few of your apps and just bought playsafe, looks cool, except it will not see my podcasts. After opening the music is all there but says no podcasts loaded, even though there is lots on there and they can all be accessed through the normal player.

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Dale

      PlaySafe used to work with podcasts – then Apple must have changed something under the hood in OS 3.1 because they stopped working. We’re currently looking into it to see if we can fix it or if we have to wait them to release 3.2…

      We’ll keep you posted on the blog.

  30. Ty Skeels Says:

    Hi Guys,
    I have a question? how do you know on your battery level app when the charging is done. Just wondering so i can buy this app.

    Thanks!

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Ty

      Just look at it! Seriously though, there is no special indicator or anything, but you can watch the level of the ‘Juice’ rise as the battery charges and when it fills up, you’re good to go. The numeric overlay helps you see exactly what the charge is and flipping the phone into landscape mode gives you a more detailed read out.

      Hope this helps.

  31. Melvyn Says:

    Hi,

    Hi, I’ve just bought deskclock and i must say that it’s really nice.

    One suggestion, when viewing the year, could you think about adding the next year also please. Even better would be to slide your finger to previous/next years.

    Thanks for the great app

    Melvyn

    • chillix Says:

      Thanks Melvyn

      We’re thinking about adding that feature in the next update (which we’ll need to do soon anyway, since 2009 will be over before you know it)

  32. hm Says:

    Its your birhday… 16 apps… 15 are free but “Playlist Alarm Clock” is NOT free… its $0.99

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Hm

      for some reason we can’t make P.A.C free! The idea was that everything was going to be free but when we went in to the back end of the App Store to change the prices, P.A.C did not have a free option. We’ve contacted Apple Tech Support about it but with no luck so far (no surprise really as they normally take days to get back to you if at all). All we can say ids that we’ll keep trying to make it free over the course of the weekend and if we can’t we’ll do it again at some point in the future.

      Sorry.

  33. Todd Says:

    I’ve checked out a few of your apps, and I like what I see, save one thing. It would be nice if you could hide the leading zero for hours in time displays. It should be there for 24-hour time, but it’s not really appropriate when using 12-hour time.

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Todd

      Thanks for the feedback. I know what you mean – we’ll look into providing this as an option but we pull our times in from Apple’s built in clock which displays times differently based on your region format settings which has caused us a few problems in the past when we’ve tried to display it differently…

    same thing here with the P.A.C. it’s the one app I’m interested in and I can’t even get it for free… oh well

  36. bobbyd Says:

    Just purchased nighttime plus 1.1 and for the most part I love it. But I cannot get the alarm to turn off by yelling at it (and my mute is not on). What’s up with that?

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Bobby

      there seems to be an issue between the latest version of NightTime and the iPhone OS – we’re looking into it and will release an update as soon as we can.

  37. K Says:

    Hi,

    Thanks for the opportunity to download your applications. I downloaded “About Time” because it looked very nice, but for some reason the words don’t get displayed — all I get is a white screen or a black screen. However, the quotes get displayed when I ‘flip’ the screen. Any ideas why? I’m still on the old iPod touch OS — would that be the problem?

    Thanks. :D

  38. Eduardo Says:

    Thanks for the gift in your Birthday. Great softwares, thanks for sharing. Keep it up with the great work

  39. Philip Says:

    Thanks for the gifts! WOW! Looking forward to having the alram clock for free too. I do have one question about “About Time” which is why does it show a blank black screen instead of the time? THanks again for the presents. p

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Philip

      sorry you’re having problems with AboutTime – we’d not seen this one before yesterday but now that so many people have downloaded AboutTime (about 10,000 this weekend) a couple of other people have contacted us with the same problem.

      Most of the issues we have with our clocks end up being something to do with region settings on people’s phones. Can you check out what your region settings and date and time settings are so we can try and reproduce them?

      Also, it’s worth changing a few of your settings and seeing if AboutTime works then ie. change your 24 hour display to 12 (or vice versa) and your region to United Kingdom – then let us know what happens?

  40. JBA Says:

      Thanks Shawn – wish more people had you attitude to the P.A.C situation – we’ve had lots of complaints. It seems you just can’t please some people :(

  43. Johnny Says:

    THANK YOU for the promotion!

  44. dave Says:

    What is the P.A.C. situation? Why isn’t it free as well?

  45. Robin Capper Says:

    ‘Juice’ is great except for the annoying noise, any chance of a mute option?

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Robin

      It’s amazing how one man’s ‘awesome sound effect’ can be another’s ‘annoying noise’ :)

      We’ll try and squeeze a sounds on/off option into the next version for you…

  46. Lawrence Says:

    O purchased juiced, however, when I rotate my iTouch to display the additional info contained in the landscape mode the is no info apart from the icon to say the percentage left and that it is unplugged. A any thoughts?

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Lawrence

      we’ve got to the bottom of the problem – the brand new iPod touches identify themselves slightly differently and this isn’t being recognised by Juiced. We’ll get a fix out asap.

  47. Neil Says:

    I found your apps last night and I can’t stop buying them. I love About Time. In my busy working day schedule I need to know exact time but when I’m chilling out, About Time brings the balance back into my life. Well done – so cool. Thanks.

  48. Stanul Says:

    Hello,
    I appreciate a lot your applications Juiced and PlaySafe.
    I have a suggestion for PlaySafe.
    You know the feature of standard iPod player which enables the listener to go back 30 seconds at a time.
    Maybe you can implement same “skip” sydtem for both FFW and RWD and maybe with the option of choosing how much to jump FFW or RWD like 30 sec, 1 min, 5 min and so on.
    This would be great for podcasts.
    Thank you for great apps.

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Stanul

      Thanks for the feedback and suggestions – we’re definitely intending to add some sort of customisable gestures to PlaySafe – so watch this space.

  49. Zorki Says:

    Hi
    I got the playsafe app and i was wondering if the issu with adding more than 250 songs make a difference if you have a 8 16 or 32gig model, cause it’s hard to choose 250 songs when you have a 32gig model lol!.

    Thank you

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Zorki

      We’ve chosen 250 as a warning level but it really does seem to vary from device to device and how much free memory you’ve got (that’s free system memory rather than used storage space). The problem occurs when you next launch PlaySafe and it tries to load the saved playlist into memory. We’re working on it but finding it difficult to pin down I’m afraid.

      In the meantime feel free to experiment – the worst thing that can happen is PlaySafe won’t work anymore and you’ll have to delete it and re-install…

  50. Jeremy Eyre Says:

    Hey Chille X,
    I downloaded NightTime Plus during your birthday special and love it. Thank you! The only problem I’m having, is that it doesn’t appear to disable the auto-lock on my iPhone 3G. Any thoughts?
    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Jeremy

      Not sure why this should be happening. I’d recommend restarting the phone and if that doesn’t work, try deleting and re-installing NightTime Plus to see if that helps.

      If you’re still getting the same problem after all that could you try downloading and running something else that is supposed to override the auto-lock (like the standard version of NightTime) and see if that works. That way we’ll know if the issue is with NT+ or something wacky going on with your phone.

  51. Massimo Says:

    Hi Chilli X !

    I’m a user of your DONE app, that i got for free during your first birthday (thank you!): I’m awaiting for next 2.0 version!

    I downloaded also JUICED, and I have a suggestion about it: why don’t you add an alert sound when the battery is full? This could be useful… I’ve seen something like that around…

    Moreover, have you ever thought about creating a “note” or “post-it” app, in order to take notes in a better way than the native one? There are several in the App store, but… you can do it better!

    Bye!

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Massimo

      Glad you’re enjoying Done. Thanks for the suggestion for Juiced – a good idea and one that we might very well add in the next build!

  52. Jeffrey Says:

    Hi, love your app. Can you add the ability to change song rating for PlaySafe in the future?

    Thanks.

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Jeffrey

      I wish we could. In fact we wanted to do a different app especially for rating songs but discovered that Apple don’t let developers change a song’s ratings (unless you know of another app that can do it)

      Sorry :(

  53. whiteapp Says:

  54. Kevin Says:

    Hi:

    I absolutely LOVE PlaySafe. I was wondering if you could add a dimmer option, like in the application FluxTunes. Now that it is getting darker earlier I’m getting blinded in my car ride home from work. ;-) (And changing the brightness of the whole device, just for PlaySafe, just seems a little counter-intuitive.) Thanks for your consideration, and keep up the great work!

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Kevin

      nice idea – night mode for PlaySafe! We’ve added it to the list of updates and we’ll try to get round to it soon…

  55. stephen Says:

    Hi,

    I’m using Done. It’s lovely and simple but a couple of things would make it awesome.
    A desktop version I can sync to on both my work and home macs.
    a better way to set the do date…you can’t see today’s date on the screen when you’re doing it…maybe one of your lovely calendar views.
    Thanks!

  56. Amy Says:

    Hi! Thanks for your great apps. I’ve been having some trouble with MyCal. When I try to use one of my own photos as background, most of them appear upsidedown. The few that don’t, I can get as far as creating the calendar, adjusting transparency, etc, but when I try to click preview, it always quits out of the app without saving the calendar. I haven’t successfully made a calendar yet despite about 6 tries. Any ideas what might be happening?

    Amy

  57. Donna Says:

    I bought Done after trying just about every to do list app available. I had even bought a couple. Done is the absolute best! I am experiencing a bug though, can’t delete a list. When I swipe on a list the delete button shows and then disappears right away. I’ve even removed all the items in the list.

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Donna

      Thanks for the kind words! We know about the issue you’re describing – we deliberately made it difficult to delete lists because some users were accidentally deleting them.

      You can do it by clicking on the ‘Edit’ button in the top left of the lists screen – then you can delete, rearrange and rename your lists to your heart’s content.

      btw – the bug you describe has been fixed in Done 2.0 (out soon)

      • Donna Miller | Healthy Recipes Says:

        Thank you! I works great. I had totally missed the ‘Edit’ button when I was trying to figure out how to change the name of a list (which was another alternative I could have used)! It wasn’t that hard after all. Thanks again for a great app, and fantastic customer service!

        I’m looking forward to the 2.0 version now too :-)

  58. Steven Says:

    Thanks for the Punch Bag Buddy app. It is pretty good. I wish though you could specify both left and right uppercuts/hooks. Would be nice to if it had elbows, knees, and kicks also. It could be a more versatile app. pretty great though keep it up.

  59. Charlie Says:

    I love Done – very easy to use. I was wondering if any thought had been given to syncing with any kind of desktop program. It seems to me that since the Tasks function from Outlook does not syc with the iphone, your program would be a great replacement.

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Charlie

      thanks for the feedback – we’re looking into options for syncing Done and a desktop app is definitely one of them. All we need to do is find the time to do it :)

    • Donna Miller | Healthy Recipes Says:

      Yeah I second that Charlie! Desktop app for Mac too please :-)

      There is a really great app with a similar kind of simple yet effective interface. It’s called TaskPaper by Hog Bay Software. I don’t know if it would be easier for you to sync with an existing app – it might be easier to just build your own from scratch, but if you’re curious have a look at http://www.hogbaysoftware.com. I’m not affiliated with them in any way except that I’m a very happy customer. I use their TaskPaper (Mac) and WriteRoom (on both Mac and Ipod Touch) applications.

  60. antonin Says:

    Thank you for Punch Bag Buddy. Very nice app but it is a little bit confused respect to workout words. Please, it should be possible to add punch, left and right hook, left and right uppercuts, maybe kicks (left and right front-,push-, round-, roundhouse-, back-,ex-kick). And maybe some numbers for sequences? Thank you.

  61. jughead Says:

    Night Time Plus…
    description inquiries… please answer the following:

    Is autolock feature on/off option available?
    Is alarm set from app itself or from apple app?
    Can you add alarm option screenshot to the description?
    What are the default sounds? Can you use music library?
    Is snooze time user defineable?
    What is battery consumption like with app running?

    Suggestion:I like the small font day of week at bottom, can you add the date in small font as well?
    Can the “next alarm time” be added in small font at the bottom?
    This is useful info to avoid extra tapping
    Thanks!

  62. Laura Says:

    Thanks so much for Done!

    Done is by far the simplest to-do list I’ve ever used. It has just enough options to make it very usable, but without bogging me down in setting up dates and times, sub-categories, repeats, etc.

    I do have one dream request for the program…
    how about a “Pick for Me” type feature? For example, I’ve got 70some tasks on my Done list, and I would love to be able to just select a category (or two or three!) and click “Pick One!” and have one random task selected for me. I think such a feature would be fantastic for us indecisive types. :D

    Thanks for Done, and thanks for listening.

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Laura

      Thanks for the kind words and the suggestion. We’ve not had that one before and I don’t recall seeing it in any other apps so it might make a nice little unique feature.

      We’ll definitely add it to the list.

  63. Hosetlh Says:

    Any word on when the landscape version of Star Time will be availabe?

  64. bgk Says:

    Three suggestions…

    AboutTime should have an “Auto” setting for the day/night times. This would cause them to be based on the calculated sunrise and sunset times for the current date and the GPS location.

    MyCal needs an option to select the starting day of the week.

    I removed PhotoFrame because was too tedious to set-up. I would want to select whole albums to be displayed, not each picture one-by-one.

    Thanks.

    • chillix Says:

      Hi bgk

      thanks for the suggestions:

      AboutTime – nice idea

      MyCal – we’re working on this now and it will be in a future release

      PhotoFrame – we’d love to be able to do that but the developer SDK only lets you pick pictures rather than albums. As soon as Apple change the way it works we’ll release an update.

  65. Clare Says:

    I’ve just bought Done and I really like it. It’s intuitive and also comforting and familiar as it’s exactly how I would write a todo list in my journal. Also a brilliant price! So well done :) Just 2 things to get it the 5 stars in the rave review I’m about to write: 1. Could there be more colour options? 2. Could there be the option of a checklist within a task? Just one more level would be perfect, without I think compromising the simplicity you are after.

    I know you’re busy with other things, but are you planning any more updates to Done? I would love to stick with it and will do for now, but I think those features might be “dealbreakers” in the future.

    Thanks :)

  66. Tj Says:

    Is there any way, in PlaySafe, to turn off the controls at the bottom of the screen in Portrait mode, as it appears in Landscape mode?

  67. Clare Says:

    Have spent the last couple of hours searching, so thought I might ask you guys. All I want is the ability to colour code appointments in a simple calendar like the one that comes with the iPhone, without shelling out for something like Pocket Informant with a million features I don’t need.

    Perhaps a similar gap in the market like the one you found for Done (which I love) for a simple colour-coded pocket calendar for those of us who don’t need to sync to anything on our desktops?

    Thanks for your time :)

  68. Chris Herd Says:

    I was looking at MyCal and can’t figure out if there is a way to generate calendars where Monday is the first day of the week. Some of your other products seem to be able to do this. Please advise.

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Chris

      Currently there isn’t – unfortunately the vast majority of the sales for MyCal are in the US so this wasn’t a priority for us initially.

      However, we’re working on an update now that will allow this – why not follow us on Twitter to stay up to date?

  69. Jorge Perez Says:

    Bought PhotoFrame. nice App.. but the number of pictures in a Gallery is very limited.. Is there a way to add more? can´t find it.. Also I use my frame in Landscape so some portrait pictures to do not show correctly. Is there a way that I can choose where the picture to be adjusted or cropped to the landscape mode? Regards

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Jorge

      Thanks for the kind words and feedback.

      We limited the galleries to 20 pics on purpose at first because we were developing blind (ie. without an actual iPad) and wanted to err on the safe side. Unfortunately Apple won’t let us link to the albums you already have in the Photos app and we have to copy and import photos into PhotoFramePlus – you can see how this doubling up of images might cause problems for users with large photo libraries…

      The good news though is that when OS 4.0 comes out we should be able to just point PhotoFrame at your existing albums and it will all work the way we’d like it to work now :)

      As for cropping portrait pictures in landscape mode – the old iPhone move and crop functionality doesn’t seem to be available on the iPad (you’ll notice it’s not there when you set a wallpaper). Would you say it’s normally the top or the bottom of your pictures that get cut off?

  70. Jorge Perez Says:

    NT Plus.. How Do I set the alarm in my IPAD for this Night TIme Plus?

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Jorge

      NT Plus should work just the same on the iPad as it does on the iPhone (we’ve tested it and everything seems to be OK)

      You set the alarm by tapping the alarm icon in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. Please remember that the app has to be running in order for the alarm to go off…

  71. Brian Says:

    Hi -

    Purchased PhotoFrame and it is almost perfect. I know that some folks want more photos, but I’d like the photos to stay on the screen for longer; at least 30 minutes. The one thing that is keeping me from using the app everyday on my desk at work is that I get distracted every 120 seconds when the photo changes. Just picked up my Ipad and will purchase PhotoFrame plus if you can make the photos stay on the screen longer. I hope you can fix this soon, because in all other ways the app is exactly what I want.

    Thnx.

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Brian

      thanks for the kind words and suggestion – it’s already on the list of features we’re going to add in the next update (not the one we’ve just submitted which should be live any day which is basically a bug fix)

      In the meantime, you could switch the slideshow option off and just change the pic manually (by swiping across the screen) whenever you felt like it… Tap on the ‘i’ button (lower right hand corner of screen). Make sure the top option (Photo Settings) is highligted and the first button should be ‘Slideshow – on/off’. You don’t have this option in the iPhone version of PhotoFrame. PhotoFramePlus also has a random feature, 3 galleries of photos and full screen year calendar display with lots more coming soon…

  72. Paul Hunt-Terry Says:

    I’ve been happily using Photo Frame on my iPhone since last year, and just bought Photo Frame Plus for my iPad. My problem is that when I use iTunes to put Photo Frame Plus on the iPad the original Photo Frame is also copied across. I cannot permanently remove Photo Frame, either by deleting from the iPad or deselecting from the iTunes apps tab. While Photo Frame Plus is on the iPad Photo Frame always comes back.
    I don’t want to remove Photo Frame from my iPhone but also don’t want both versions on the iPad. Also, the apps on the iPad are both named Photo Frame and have the same icon, but they are the iPhone and iPad versions.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Paul

      thanks for pointing this out – we’ve noticed it ourselves now that we’ve got actual iPads (the problem didn’t show up in the simulator due to the way apps are installed).

      We’ve looked into it and think we now why it’s happening (iTunes seems to get confused by the fact that both apps have the same screen name and ignores the full name and app id number). Not sure how we can fix it without re-releasing the app with a different name or hope that Apple fixes it in the next version of iTunes (other developers are sure to be having the same problem…)

  73. Tim Says:

    Hi there,

    Now that iOS4 has been released to developers, can you confirm if you’ll be able to import photo albums into the Photoframe plus application? It’s a pain having to add individual photos and the 30 picture maximum is a major limitation.

    Thanks.
    Tim

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Tim

      We agree, it is a pain but we always like to think positively so consider it a great opportunity to cherry pick your favorite photos.

      But seriously, we’d always intended to be able to access your existing Photo Albums directly so are pleased to able to finally do it in iOS 4.0.

      Remember there’s no firm iPad release date yet though – just sometime this Fall…

      Hi Sabatij

      There’s no way to back up your to dos as such but you can email them to yourself – either all of them or just a selection.

    Now that I am a happy iPhone AND iPad user, I would love to have a version for the iPad as well. Ideally it would be able to sync with the phone version. Any plans for this in the future?

  76. Joshua Ochs Says:

    I assume it’s in the cards, but I’m particularly interested in updates to PlaySafe and RandomPlay so they can take advantage of the new iTunes library access added in iOS 4.

    Thanks!

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Joshua

      We’re trying to work through all the apps and add iOS 4 features and compatibility but we’re obviously concentrating on the more popular ones first – basically, MyCal, Done & PhotoFrame are all in progress to some degree or other (we’re only a small company).

      I’m afraid PlaySafe and RandomPlay aren’t at the top of the list but we will get round to them.

    Thanks so much for your work on Done!

    It’s the simplest and usable to-do list I’ve used. It’s realy fast to option tasks.
    Maybe easier than should be.
    For my better usability is important 3 things.
    1. sub-categories (Who doesn’t want – doesn’t have) or minimum Choose color to tasks. (text color ?) – 5 minuts work for you.
    without sub-categories in time I’ll stop using it. It’s a shame.
    2. manualy sorting tasks (up/down) I have 6 tasks and 3 priorities. (maybe first shake by priority, second by alphab. or manualy)
    3. one-click Done wallpaper. I know :(( maybe in the future iOS9

      Hi Ed

      Glad you like Done and thanks for the feedback. We constantly battle with keeping it simple vs. adding new features but in response to your points I’d say:

      1) Sub-categories – I’d recommend using colours to represent a major category (ie. I use red for all Chilli X related tasks) and creating new lists for sub-categories (ie. I have a list for the blog, a list for app concepts etc.)

      b) You can sort manually – just tap and hold an item to go into manual mode, then drag it up or down and tap again

      c) One-click wallpaper – if we could we would :) Personally I’d prefer no-click wallpaper that just auto updates when you quit the app

    Hello, can we expect a P.A>C. for the iPad as well? Thanks!

    • chillix Says:

      Hi René

      We weren’t planning on it immediately, in fact, so far you’re the only person to ask for it!

      So at the moment, I think the answer has to be ‘maybe’…

    Hi,

    Done is a very simple and good-to-use App. But it needs an Alarm!!!
    Now you can realise with massages the App can sendt me!
    Pleas ad this feature and it’s rally perfect.

    I love Done. Simple and clean. But I think it’s time for a retina display icon, please. It looks ghetto next to my other crisp icons.

    • chillix Says:

      You’re right Mike – totally agree with you :) It bugs me too – we’ve got a bigger icon ready to go but we’re having a few problems with Done at the moment as we migrate bits of the code from one developer to another (don’t even ask…)

      We’ll get on it as soon as we’re able to.

      • Mike Says:

        Where is the retina display icon? I’ve tried Things, Egretlist, Moleskin and a handful of other list apps. None of them compare to Done. But I can’t put a pixelated icon on my home page. It looks bad next to all the other crisp icons. It’s April, where is the icon?

  81. Glenn Says:

    Been using PhotoFrame on my iPhone since day one and love it :) Just installed PF+ on my iPad and noticed that my photos are being cropped on the top edge of the pictures. Sorta a problem with portraits since some of them are missing heads (!). Do you have any plans to allow some control how cropping/positioning of photos is enabled?

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Glenn

      Cropping of photos on the iPad caused a lot of problems for us! It’s not as simple as the iPhone because you’ve got widescreen and portrait to take care of and the software does that automatically (think about how wallpapers are handled)…

      So here’s how it’s supposed to work in PhotoFramePlus – portrait images shouldn’t be cropped in portrait mode and landscape images shouldn’t be cropped in landscape mode (well not by too much anyway… a few pixels here and there to allow for the menu bar etc)

      The biggest problem comes with displaying a portrait image in landscape mode and vice versa… especially if the focus of the photo is off to one side.

      One solution is to create an album of your favorite portrait pics and another for your favorite landscape pics and switch accordingly…

      • Glenn Says:

        Hmm, I’m only using the portrait mode for now. I’ll try to experiment with pre-cropping the images so there shouldn’t be a need for PF+ to do it. Is there a particular aspect ratio (eg: x-pixels x y-pixels) that’s ideal? Are the header and footer borders included?
        Thanx for your help n keep up the great work :)

  82. B Says:

    I purchased a photo frame. Is it possible to use as the unlock wallpaper or have I missed something?

    • chillix Says:

      Hi B

      Not quite sure what you mean… Do you want to save an individual picture as your lockscreen or have the app running in the background on your lockscreen?

      If it’s the first you could just take a screen grab (hold power & home buttons simultaneously), if it’s the second then I’m afraid there’s currently no way to customize the lockscreen…

    We need a 2011 update to Deskclock — it’s already March. Or if you’re getting tired of annual updates, add a yearly calendar function.

    • chillix Says:

      Hi Joe

      Thanks for reminding us about it – it’s on the list of things to do but we’ve just lost our original programmer and trying to pick the code apart for somebody new is proving a bit tricky.

      Theoretically we should be able to fix it with a coded calendar rather than the current graphic so it will last more than a year (we’ve done it for PhotoFramePlus) but adapting that code for DeskClock is giving us a bit of trouble.

      Sorry for the inconvenience, but we are working on it (and a whole load of other issues caused by moving from one programmer to another).

      I tried emailing you to offer you a promo code for any other our our apps you might like but the email keeps bouncing back – can you contact us at contact@chillix.net and we’ll try again

      Cheers

      Dave

    Where is the 2011 update for Deskclock? I paid for the app late last year and only have a 2010 calendar.…

    Hello,

    I have updated my iPhone with the iOS 4.3.3 and since the RandomPlay application stops playing after the first track and shuts down.
    Is there something to do to do to prevent such a behaviour ?
    Thank you.
    Kind regards

    BS

    Is there a way of syncing Done on iPad and iPhone yet? Or even better with mac book too

  87. Xander Says:

    Adding the info I received via email from Chillix so that folks googling can find it

    doubletap://net.chillidesign.PlaySafe

    Worked perfectly and now my car is even safer!
