    As I mentioned in a thread yesterday, I have moved from the HTC 8x to the Nokia 920.

    On my HTC there was an active tile that showed the time in big letters that I had at the top of my home screen. Unfortunately, that app is not available for the 920. This brings me to today's question... Is there an App that has the time in reasonably large numbers? I don't mind paying for the app, but for the life of me, I haven't been able to find one.

    I realize it isn't that big of a deal, but I'm a creature of habit and I would like to be able the see the time at a glance when I unlock my phone. I also realize that there is lock in the upper right hand corner of the screen, but I would like it way larger so that it could be easily seen at a glance.

    In advance, thanks for the community!!

    Sadly, no tile apart from the HTC app can be actually 'live' and update in real time. Thus a clock tile wouldn't work great as it would only update every 15 mins or whatever the live tile update time is. I'm sure there are some apps like this but not much use. The HTC app is special but hopefully real time updating tiles might be brought in in a future update.

    Isn't the Amber update that will come with GDR2 supposed to offer the glance mode that has a clock?

    Sadly i don't think one exists.

    There was a bit of a push on these forums to try and get Nokia to notice a live tile clock app called TimeMe and perhaps take it on, but the problem with that is it can only update every 30 minutes.

    This... You won't need a tile when you can have it right on the screen when you pull it out of your pocket.
