Turn Your iPhone/iPad Into a Grandfather Clock; SBSH Launches Cuckoo for iOS Listen to this article


SBSH Mobile Software has released Cuckoo. Cuckoo has been available for S60 phones and now it is available for iOS devices. In fact, in the first few months it was available on the S60 platform it was downloaded by more than half a million people.

The idea of Cuckoo is rather simple – it gets your iPhone/iPad to chime hourly. It runs in the background and, like a grandfather clock, lets you know when another hour has passed. Here’s the App Store description…

Keep track of time with Cuckoo! Turn your iPhone or iPad into a grandfather clock or electronic desk clock or wristwatch! Choose from several sound options, and Cuckoo will chime every hour so you’ll always stay on track! Choose operation hours from the Settings. Cuckoo runs in the background, and auto-starts with your iPhone or iPad.

It is one of those fun little apps that add personality to your iOS device and, since it is a free download, it costs nothing to check it out.

You can get Cuckoo HERE in the App Store.
