If Louis the Fourteenth were alive today, he'd be almost 300 years old. He'd also have this clock on his iPhone, a sun clock fit for a Sun King. And now you can too. While it's docked on your desk, it gives your castle that 'touch of Versailles' elegance. The clock includes not only the sunrise and sunset dials you'd expect with such Old World craftsmanship, but also a rare sphere-style moon phase indicator. In the field (whether you're fighting the Hapsburgs for control of the Spanish throne, or simply taking the train to work) the sun clock displays your latitude and longitude, both in degrees and on a miniature map of the world. Made from the finest and purest gold pixels, it never needs dusting, oiling, or polishing. Become a patron of the arts, download the sun clock and let your iPhone shine forth!

Due to popular confusion (sorry) an explanation. In order to accurately predict sunrise and sunset Sun Clock needs to know exactly where you are. It does this automatically when the app starts, but I also provide a button (the one at "4:30") to force an update in your position if you didn't happen to be in a place where your position could be determined when the application starts.

What's New in Version 1.1

Auto-lock (screen dimming) disabled while clock is active.

Manual entry of your location is now available. It's a bit coarse, but just touch the map to set your location. More exact entry will be available in a later version.

There will be no sound until we can make sound as high quality as the visuals.
