It’s AboutTime!

It’s AboutTime somebody wrote a clock like this. Let’s be honest, apart from New Year’s Eve when do you really need to know exactly what time it is to the nearest second? In these days of obsession with atomic clocks and split second timing isn’t it refreshing to just kick back and say ‘it’s about five o’clock’?

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 (alternatively, you could just look out of the window). It makes an ideal (and unusual) bedside clock.

At night the screen darkens - you could even use it as a 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.

Nowadays the App Store is flooded with clocks – do you really need another one? The answer is ‘yes’ if you’re looking for something a bit different. AboutTime is a great conversation piece – use it when your phone is on charge in its dock and see what reaction you get from passers by.

Think of AboutTime as the anti-clock.
