Here’s a brief overview of each of our Apps – arranged by the date they were released (with the newest at the top).
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?
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 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.
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 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Punch Bag Buddy is your personal trainer in your pocket.
Punch Bag Buddy is ideal for exercising when using a punch bag or training partner, or for shadow boxing.
Here’s how it works -Set the duration of your workout, set the intensity of your workout, choose the commands you want to use during your workout – GO!
Punch Bag Buddy uses a large number of high quality voice commands to instruct your next move – for example, ‘Jab’, ‘Hook’, ‘Guard Up!’.
Use the intensity slider to make the commands come more quickly or more slowly – go for a longer less intense workout when you have the time, or a short, hard workout when time is precious
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.

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.

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, a light-hearted ‘interactive mistletoe simulator’. Simply hold Mistletoe above your head and shake the phone to produce the sound of tinkling bells to attract your prey, then pucker up and wait for the fun to start.
If you strike out, console yourself by pressing the screen and seeing a pair of luscious lips complete with kissing sound effects.

Chilli X’s Mistletoe has the following advantages over real mistletoe:
• the berries will not squish in your pocket
• does not need watering – lasts forever!
• plays jingle bells when shaken
• gives you a consolation kiss if you can’t find the real thing
