Eorzea Clock for Android - Official LaunchFollow

A lot of you (almost 600 now, so thanks!) have already downloaded it, but I've finally got EorzeaClock for Android to a point where I'm comfortable calling it version 1.0. If you downloaded a previous version, there's a lot that's changed.

  • Widget is now more functional (and prettier)
  • Moon Phases and Guardians added
  • Set alarms for Eorzea dates or Moon Phases, repeating or one-time


(NOTE: If you already have the app, updating will not refresh the widget. You'll need to delete it from your desktop and re-add it.)

EorzeaClock 1.0.0 Main Screen
EorzeaClock 1.0.0 Widget


If you have an android phone, just scan this QR code with your barcode reader app to get to its Android Market page:
EorzeaClock QR Code Link


Or just search "Eorzea Clock" on the Android Market.

I've got a lot of updates planned, and once the game launches it will be updated to include things like airship times, etc.

I'm open to any suggestions you guys might have for the app, too. If you have suggestions, please let me know.

Finally, if you are good with French, German, or Japanese I'm looking for people to help me localize the app into other languages. Please PM me or post here if you can help!

Nice work. I always loved the different clocks people made for FFXI.

Actually, no, I guess they weren't. I think I implemented that outside of the main FFXIVCalendar class for some reason, so I'll have to send you that, too.

Hey, where are you guys getting the info for the moon phases and Guardians? I'd like to add that to my app (webOS), but am not having much luck finding the info :(

Well, really it's a lot of guesswork since I'm not technically in the beta. I just have nice friends. The info on the guardians I got on Eorzeapedia or somewhere like that.

The moon phases I'm pretty sure are right, and as far as I can tell each month starts at the new moon, evenly split up into the phases every 4 days.

Good luck on your app. Gotta show some love to the people that bought a Pre, right?

Thanks. Speaking for myself, which is really all I can speak for, I do it because I like all the awesome people in the communities (both FFXIV and Android) and want to give back when I can, because I like learning and playing with new technology, and because I'm excited about the game.

It takes quite a bit of work, so it's always nice to have people say they appreciate it (and it's really gratifying to watch the download count go up and know people are using it and enjoying it). Thanks!

Thanks for the heads up, I guess I have some coding to do when I get off work tomorrow. I had started working on a FFXI app cause the layout would ultimately help me with FFXIV once ferry/airship/chocobo racing?/shop times are known... Or does someone have this info? ;)

Yeah, as far as I know, none of that stuff is implemented yet. The airship does fly by Limsa about once every 15 minutes real time, but that's all it does is fly by. It doesn't stop and wait or anything like that. There are a few time-based things that occur, or at least I've been told that certain NPCs show up or quests start on the :40 of certain hours, and things like that. I haven't really gone through and identified any of that yet though, since I've got more important things to work on with the app at the moment.

I figure by the time the game is released people will start identifying that stuff and I won't have to sit in one place for hours at a time staring into the sky to see the airship go by and logging the times. If it's anything like FFXI and you have to get several missions finished (or pay a bunch of gil) before you can ride the airship, then it's going to be irrelevant at the beginning anyway. Basically, I am just setting up the system so that it's ready at launch and I can just plug in the times.

Sorry to bother again... The guardians, is it simply that each month is tied to a given guardian so that for the entire game month that guardian has a bonus or something? Such as...

Month 1: Azeyma, the Warden
Month 2: Nophica, the Matron
Month 3: Thaliak, the Scholar
Month 4: Llymlaen, the Navigator
Month 5: Halone, the Fury
Month 6: Byregot, the Builder
Month 7: Nald'thal, the Traders
Month 8: Althyk, the Keeper
Month 9: Nymeia, the Spinner
Month 10: Oschon, the Wanderer
Month 11: Menphina, the Lover
Month 12: Rhalgr, the Destroyer

Also, for the moon phase I went with:
tempMoonPhase = Math.floor((ffxivDay - 1) / 4);
// ffxivDay is the day of the month from 1 to 32 and result helps grab the background image position from: [img=174429]

Its NOT 48 hours to you.


Example:

- Tuesday you do all 8
- Wednesday 9am JST = reset

So its only been 24hrs since you completed them.

Please learn how it works!


If this is true, we'll need a leve timer in there as well!

Thanks for the info. That should be really easy to implement if it's true. Can anyone confirm it and does anyone know the exact times that it resets, etc?

Eorzea Clock Version 1.1 has arrived!

  • Added Vana'diel time as an option. In the app, press the Menu key to access. For widgets, just add the widget to the desktop and it will give you the option for either Eorzea or Vana'diel time.
  • You can have multiple widgets on your desktop (e.g., one for Eorzea time and another for Vana'diel time.
  • Fixed the widget layout in landscape orientation.
  • Please note that alarms are NOT yet implemented for Vana'diel time. You can set them, but it'll go off at the specified Eorzea date/time, not the Vana'diel time.


I've also added a "donation" version to the market. If you enjoy the app, please consider purchasing the donation version instead. The only real difference is that from now on, as a sort of thank you gift, I'll be pushing new feature updates a day or two earlier on the donation version (bug fixes or minor changes will be put out immediately regardless of version).

I almost feel dirty for asking for donations, but this app has taken up a lot more of my time than I'd expected, and my RL situation and plans have changed somewhat since I first released it. I decided that asking for donations would be better for everyone than gimping the free version or making it ad-supported.

Scan the following QR code with your phone's barcode scanner to get to the donation version, or just search for "Eorzea Clock" on the Android Market and you'll be helping to feed a starving programmer:

Eorzea Clock QR Code (donations)


If you don't care to donate, no big deal. I'm just putting the option out there. Please continue to enjoy using the free version of the app.

Looks very nice, great job!

One thing you might want to consider. How about a selectable server status? Just something simple like the name below the clock in either red or green. I know the names have not been finalized yet, I'm just tossing out ideas.

Thanks for the input. I'll definitely think about doing something along those lines, as it sounds like a good feature.

I am also in the process of developing an Eorzea clock for the iPhone.
It has been submitted to the App Store and is currently waiting review - fingers crossed it will hit the store by the end of the week.

It will be free when released. I am planning on adding lots more features, like alarms, ship timers, city hub pages etc. I have not yet decided whether I will be charging for this or simply making it iAd supported when the new features are in place, but it will remain free for now so if you grab it when it is released it will remain free for you forever :)

Below is a screenshot of the app in its current state. I have yet to implement the Guardian status but I will be doing that tonight, as well as working on adding alarms :)

For those of you who were asking for a guildleve reset timer, I added a timer to the free app.

If you have the paid app, I also added the option for a guildleve reset timer to the widget. To get the leve timer on the widget you'll need to create a new one--there's no way to add it to a widget that already exists right now.

As always, the widget leve timer will make it to the free version eventually, but it's only in the donation version for now. It's $2 on the android market, so if you want to support future development, please consider purchasing it. Thanks!

I'm not sure what you mean by "custom widget." To get the leve timer on a widget, you just long-press on the home screen and select Widgets -> Eorzea Clock(Donation). Then it will bring up some radio buttons. Select the third one on the list (Eorzea Guildleve Reset, or something like that), and you'll have a widget that shows the guildleve reset countdown.

What android version are you running? It should be compatible with any version 1.5 or higher.

You should see it while just searching for "FFXIV". If that doesn't work, have you tried using the barcode scanner app to scan the QR code from the original post? I'm not sure what's wrong if that doesn't work, because I don't see any reason why that phone wouldn't be compatible.

It's on 1.6 (the most uptodate version the mini can use) i use neo reader on the square thing, nothing comes up on the market.

"there are no matches in the android market for the search : pname:com.zpym.eorzeaclockdonation" (thats what i get)

I type ffxiv on the market even eorzea, only 1 item show's and thats the ffxiv guide. (which i have) i do have this problem with a few apps, like JTV they just don't show even though they are supposed to be up on there, i just assume it's because the x10 mini is a different type of andriod phone (meaning its the smallest)

Yep, looks like the problem is that QVGA phones aren't supported by default unless I have the minimum required version set to 1.6 or higher. Since I have it set at 1.5, I have to explicitly say that I've tested it on small screens in order for it to show up. Anyway, I made the change and uploaded it. If you're able to download either version now, can you let me know how it works? The emulator I made for that screen size is loading really slow, and I'm on my lunch break right now, so I don't have time to wait for it.

Oh, and if you really want an app that you can't get to (like the JTV one you were talking about), just contact the developers and tell them they need to test to make sure it works on QVGA (240x320) screens, then they need to add the following line in their manifest file and after that you should be able to find it:

<supports-screens android:smallScreens="true" />


Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Hopefully the app works for you!

I'm sure I'll be adding them eventually. Basically, I thought about adding them before, but I wanted to make sure I got them right. That's why I'm letting smarter people than me figure this stuff out before I include it. (They haven't put icons in the actual game yet for them, have they? If they do I suppose I'll have to do them.) In the meantime I'm working on a couple other projects, so updates have been a little slow.
