Always display clock time on screen

Hello,

 

I come from Nokia (N8 and N9) and I'm searching for a simple but very frustrating feature :

display the clock time when the phone rest and the screen dim...

 

On my N9, it display clock time, date and battery level.

Can't get rid of that O_O

 

BB10 is great great OS but,

Help, please ...

From the lock screen, swiping down from the bezel will bring up the sleep mode with a permanent clock.

Not quite what you are requesting I feel but pretty close.


If you've been helped click on Like Button, if you've been saved buy the app. :smileyhappy:

Re: Always display clock time on screen

Hi,

 

Yes sleep mode is great when you go to bed.

 

I request for a day mode, where you just pull the phone out of your pocket and it displays the current time.

 

Thanks for your reply.

This is my daytime (night time too) screen, all I have to do is swipe half-way up from the bottom

Re: Always display clock time on screen

Yes but then you have to activate notifications all day...

Then you cannot sleep at night (unless you de-activate at night then re-activate in the morning...) :smileytongue:

 

I understand it is not possible now, but if BB10 devs needs some hints for nice feature in the future, this is one :smileyhappy:

 

The best of course would be to have an API to access that screen so one can write apps that display all sort of notifications there :smileyhappy:

I always have my notification ON, I never had the temptation to turn them OFF
