    Very clever.

    I wonder, why no other app does that. It would be really cool for clock apps, too.

    Absolutely.

    On a tangent, how about animated icons?

    Animation and battery life don't go well together, do they?

    Depends.

    Animation on the concept of uber optimisations like the old animated GIFs take no mem/power at all. I work in CG animation and can't see why not. I suppose animated icons would be fairly distracting if anything.

    Distraction is an interesting point.

    Having 26 different animations looking at one at the same time may indeed by leading to more distraction then helping usability.

    Which animations are you referring too?

    I wasn't aware that there are animations for app icons.
