Nightly Clock

Your rating: None Average: 4.9 (18 votes)

Nightly Clock is a clock designed for your bedside, originally from BlackBerry10 but hugely improved for Sailfish, rebuilt for Sailfish OS with a Silica UI for the native feel.

The App is customisable with colours (Ambience included), custom Alarm tones, clock styles, font sizes, wallpapers, weather and more.


Documentation for custom clock stlyes:


The interval alarm feature is for all of those people who want that extra lie in, with interval alarm you can set Nightly clock to briefly sound the alarm then auto shut off to remind you it's time to get up without the need to touch the device.


You can find a black background in Settings-Customise-Wallpaper for bedside use or set to auto show from the main settings,

Also please note that the UI components do move around ever so slightly to prevent any screen burn in issues, so don't be alarmed (sorry bad pun) if they seem off center.


Please do leave any feedback no matter how small, this App was built in free time and with a bunch of great testers.

Devices running SailfishOS 4.0 + supported


If you are experiencing problems installing please try the pkcon refresh command from the terminal, as some devices are missing the qt5-qtlocation library needed for the weather side of the App

I will certainly improve the time between sounding selection :)

The sound duration is controlled by the 'Time to sound for' option, would you like to see more durations added to that list?


On the background, I'm not sure if that can be done since the Ambience wallpaper is coded very deeply into the ApplicationWindow component, but I'll certainly give it a shot :)




Well, I managed to knick the Wallpaper component from silica and apply it to the clock face, but to be honest you can't see the Glass effect overlay on any of the UI, they are just too dimy lit when the wallpaper is dimmed down.
