The last few months I am focused to design clocks and to transform them to screensavers. The challenge was to be unique, dark, clear and to support resolutions up to 4K and 5K.
All those clocks became screensavers for Mac and PC over my new project/site, Screen Clock Saver
At this moment there are 11 clocks available on the inventory, right now I’m on a sketchbook to create new ideas that will become clocks and eventualy screensavers… The goal is to complete 24 different designs in total (like the hours of the day).
I have long way to go still, I’m almost at the middle of this path. Some friends asked me to release the screensavers through the Apple App Store for Mac. I don’t know, if I go this way, then I’ll move to even further, to make for example iOS and Android versions and add them to iOS App Store and Google’s Play Store. The second thoughts I have are about quality and support. Any developer should focus on this small detail, not all the users are capable to operate their devices as you do. To teach them how to do it, needs time and people. I prefer to deliver simple solutions with obvious operating options. iDevices and Android tablets & phones don’t use out of the box the “screensaver” operation, so why bother with it?
Computers as we know them, still are our main constructive and development environment. We use them daily to create/design/plan and analyse. All the rest devices like tablets, laptops, phones etc. are just another piece of the puzzle of computing. Small piece on the creative aspect, big thing on the communication and to keep in touch with your E-Mail account(s). Of course some people use their tablets and phones to create and develop “things”, but this is a small percentage I am not focused to.
So, this is a clarification from my Point of View about what I do the last months as a side project and what I am thinking about the platforms 🙂
Take care and keep on creating!
