    Default 'Binary Clock 7' Lets You Add a Binary Clock to Your iOS 7 Lock Screen


    At the end of 2012, we showed you a tweak called Binary Clock that allowed you to replace the Lock Screen's digital clock with a binary clock. If you liked this tweak, the unfortunate news is that it's not compatible with iOS 7, but a new jailbreak tweak called Binary Clock 7 by iOS developer Gilles PETIT is now available that will give you the binary clock on your iOS 7 Lock Screen again.

    The binary clock is shown in the screenshot above. Not everyone knows how to read a binary clock, but for those that do, this is a really cool tweak. If you don't know how to read a binary clock, and you want to learn, there is a nice guide on reading binary clocks at this link.

    Binary Clock adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure a few options:



    Here, you can enable or disable the tweak on demand, enable or disable the classical binary clock (let's you choose between a horizontal or vertical binary clock), hide or show the date on the Lock Screen under the binary clock, and pick a theme for the binary clock. The tweak comes with three bundled themes: 3D, Cat, and Default, but you can make your own and place them in the directory displayed in the preferences pane to apply them. You can see all the different bundled themes below:



    Binary Clock 7 looks to be a really neat replacement for the Lock Screen digital clock if you can actually read a binary clock. If you want to give it a try, it's available for $1.00 in Cydia's BigBoss repository. The tweak requires iOS 7 to be installed.

    Name: Binary Clock 7
    Price: $1.00
    Version: 1.0.3-17
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.5
    Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.4
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Gilles PETIT
    Editor's Rating:  5/5

    it's 05:57...

    Let me teach you fellas:

    In this Binari Clock there're 4 vertical lines (rows) and 4 columns... the lines are 1,2,4 and 8 respectively from down to top.

    In the sample above, the first two columns correspond to the "HOUR" and it is 1 and 1, wich is = 11.

    The third and fourth columns are the "MINUTES", so the first column is 1 and 4, wich is 1+4 = 5.... and the second column is 1,2 and 4, wich is 1+2+4 = 7

    So the time is "05:57".

    Probably because the developer only had an iOS 7 device to develop for.

    There's another binary clock tweak available for earlier versions of iOS, as mentioned in the article.

    Please see my post in this other thread on the same subject. There is a record amount of needless fragmentation going on right now that really could have been avoided if developers would stop ignoring all the libraries and frameworks in place to help minimize exactly this sort of thing. And as a developer, it's not that hard to ask for people who are on other platforms to help test, and is exactly what the more seasoned ones do.
