Analog Clock Tile gets updated with new faces, promises of more to come

A few weeks back we noted the release of the app Analog Clock Tile for devices running Windows Phone 8.1. The updated OS allows Tiles to be updated every minute, making "clock Tiles" like Clock Hub or TimeMe a go on the platform. No worries as to battery life, as Microsoft made sure such apps have a negligible impact.

Version 1.2 just went live in the Store, and it now has a few new features. For one, there are four new clock faces to choose from, including blocky digital, analog with numbers and one with just text.

Another change is the ability for the app to pull down new clock faces via a server. While it can be tricky (ours timed out once), this ability will keep the app small in size since you are only downloading the faces you want. What's more, new clock faces can be added at any time by the developer without an app update. Speaking of, the developer has vowed that for every 50K downloads of Analog Clock Tile, he'll add a new clock face for you folks.

Analog Clock Tile is a neat little app. It's free, and for large screen devices like the Lumia 1520, it gives you the ability to pin an ornamental Tile that actually has a function. Remember, Windows Phone is all about you, so you decide how your phone should look (don't listen to any haters in the comments!).
