When docked, the phone's screen stays on so that it works as a desktop clock. It also briefly displays the date every minute or so. Orienatation changes are less twitchy on iPads. A couple of other minor fixes.

I was thinking about the morphing in daliclock, and had an idea for a (kinda similar) 3D version. It's the intersection of the extruded numerals rotated by 90 degrees - kind of like letters on the front of the Godel, Escher, Bach book.
Not quite the same, but it would look kinda cool in OpenGL.
Wow, my mind is kinda blown right now. That's a fantastic idea.
That's damn cool. Orthographic projection? Otherwise I'd expect tiny variations as, say, the 8 changes from the slant of the 7 to the curves of the 9.
Yeah - I used the orthographic camera in povray. The tricky bit was getting the letters to be flatly lit when they are square on to the viewer, but realistically shaded, to help you visualise what you're seeing, as they turn :-)
Thanks for doing this. Grabbing it now.
