Niche apps are always tough to write about. For some, they’re indispensable. To others, they don’t make sense. DayGlance is one of those apps, designed specifically for Lumia devices running Nokia’s Glance screen.
You may not have noticed, but Nokia’s Glance screen omits the date. Instead, it just shows the time and any notifications. While I understand the logic – keep it simple – for some, knowing the calendar day is important. Luckily DayGlance fills that gap by let users show the date in the notification bar.
The app is as simple as can be. Just download, run and add it to the lockscreen notifications under Settings (the app has a direct link to simplify things). From there on out, you will see a cute little dg icon with the today’s date. Short and to the point.
The app is limited from showing more since the notification area can only be configured to show a ‘count’ and not the full date. Still, for those who want to quickly know today’s date without having to turn on their phone, it’s a novel solution.
DayGlance joins my other favorite app for Glance, LockTemp. That app runs in the background, updating every half hour to show you your current temperature based on your location. Together, both apps provide a lot of info, all attainable with a single glance. Whether or not you find them useful is a personal decision, but I do like for you guys to have options.
Pick up DayGlance for free here in the Store. If you want to support the developer, you can optionally buy it for 99 cents.
