JPClock – iPhone / iPod touch Application

JPClock is an application designed to reproduce a Japanese clock (Wadokei) used in the Edo period (1603-1867).
JPClock Screenshot 1
The Wadokei is a Japanese clock used to count time by dividing the day in six units from sunrise to sunset, and by dividing the night in six units from sunset to sunrise.
The temporal hour is a traditional Japanese timekeeping practice that was established with the lifestyle of the Edo period. Work while the Sun is up, and the day ends at sunset.
The oil used for home lighting was expensive in this period. Living with the sun cycle was economical.

JPClock uses the iPhone’s GPS function and measures your position (latitude/longitude) in order to reproduce the Japanese clock.

It also contains a normal clock and a calendar, so you can use the application as a desktop clock or calendar. (Supporting the screen rotation)
