QUICK TIPS

  1. Quickly dim the screen by swiping up or down the clock face.
  2. Shake to turn the flashlight on or off.
  3. Recharge while you sleep! We recommend using the USB power cable or a speaker dock to display the clock face overnight. Mighty Clock will work while your device is locked.
  4. Alarms automatically turn off after 10 minutes.

Please note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. GPS is only used continuously if weather is left on.

Accessibility Comments: 

This app is relatively accessible. It can be used, but there are certainly better and more accessible options available.

The first item on the screen is an either that toggles between two screen display options - either grey or LCD. VoiceOver will announce "iphone lp mode grey" or "iphone lp mode lcd" accordingly.

The next icon turns the flashlight on or off. However, VoiceOver does not tell you whether the flashlight is on or off, and will say "iphone lp flashlight grey" for both of these. So, if you have no vision, the only way you will know that the flashlight is on is by the rapid drop in your device's battery level!

The 3rd icon on the screen opens the settings screen. All items on this screen work okay.

These 3 icons are the only page elements that VoiceOver reads from the app's main screen. VoiceOver will not announce the time, nor will it read the weather indicators if you have them turned on.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads a few page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Few buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.
