Dayboard: Animated Clock, Weather and Twitter Widget for iPad

Dayboard by Blend is a beautiful and, at the same time, interesting application for all those who prefer to keep their iPads on the desk as a clock widget / second monitor while they're working. The app, sold at $0.99 in the App Store, combines a minimal, elegant and sexy design with clock, weather, calendar and Twitter widgets displayed on screen at the same time.

Dayboard provides all kinds of information without being just a flip clock -- like many other apps in the App Store. Upon launch you'll be asked to grant location access to the app, and I've noticed Dayboard reliably and correctly fetches my current location -- which, for some reason, has been kind of a problem with several apps lately. Together with location and weather info, Dayboard displays time and date. On top of the animated flip clock, there's a button to switch from dark theme to light theme. Last, a widget at the bottom rotates Twitter trends -- and you can even pick local trends for your country or stick with the worldwide ones. You can't tap on them to load Twitter in Safari, but the animation is pretty cool.

Dayboard is available at $0.99 in the App Store. Give it a try if you're looking for a great addition to your desk.
