Sony releases “a” CLOCK Android App; World Heritage Live Wallpapers with Time-shift UI

Sony released a new Android app today called “a” CLOCK.

The app is basically a big ol’ collection of World Heritage pictures taken by Sony “alpha” cameras at various times of the day. The app uses Sony’s proprietary “Time-shift UI” which allows you to see the same picture at various times of the day, just by vertically sliding down the time display. Swipe upwards and you’ll be able to read a Wikipedia entry on the scene, or view a map and even share the picture. Here’s a quick video demo of how it all works:

The best part about the app is that you can set it as your live wallpaper, and it will change automatically according to the time of the day. You can also set it to randomly show different world heritage sights, if you’re not fixated on just one. Available for free, over on the Google Play Store.

    This one looks good, but it has no practical application. I wish they would make an app that would be really useful in real life.
