From the developer of the popular free Dock Clock comes the new ultimate version with almost every requested feature, and some more. Dock Clock Plus is an ‘always on’ desk or night clock which is activated automatically when you connect your device to a charger or dock. During the day Dock Clock Plus is in an invaluable desk clock with at-glance count information, at night Dock Clock Plus transforms into a low-light night clock.
Latest enhancements: Screen Saver mode (launch when screen timeout and connected to power)

* Improvements over Dock Clock Free
Third party app conflicts: We have found that ‘Free Advanced Task Manager’ has a habit of closing DCP without warning, we would recommend not using this app or adding DCP to its exclusion list.
HTC/Motorola devices: Please note that because of HTC and Motorola’s broken implementation of the Android API DCP has no way to disable the soft key backlight, they are controlled by the ambient sensor on the device.
“Unknown” location: Some OEM and third party ROMs do not include Google’s Geocoder service which DCP uses to identify the name of your location, in which case DCP will use the default ‘Unknown’ location name. You will need to disable auto location and enter your location manually (or upgrade your ROM).
