What will TT's true time be for you?

Is TrueTyme eye-catching, ice-breaking mind-body "math-art"? Or is it a FitBit-enhancing "timewhole", one especially created for the natural-high minded? Either way, TrueTyme's localized sun & moon time (and mood) tracking -- and especially under worst case conditions, is full of colorful feature-rich surprises.

While TrueTyme can be useful to folks recovering in Intensive Care Units, or even in solitary confinement in prisons, our typical user is someone who works in a windowless job environment. Or just all day indoors. So if you do, you may want to know that working without a window nearby is now known to be a factor in all kinds of circadian rhythm problems. Things like infertility, obesity, depression. If so, try working near a window, one where you get to see the sun's journey in the sky during the day as best you can, the way farm workers do. But if you can't -- and most of us cannot, you can always consider trying out something like one of these...

1) You can seek to keep track of where you are in the day by using Time.is. It is described as the world's most accurate web-based digital clock. Of course, sooner or later you still might suffer, but at least you will always be exactly on time.


2) You can use a very lovely wall clock called The Present, which does NOT show you where you are in the day NOR the night, NOR even where you are in the week NOR the month. But it does show you where you are in the year. So you still might not avoid one or more circadian rhythm-related problems, but at least you can show your colleagues a unique calendar elegantly described and marketed as a clock, one that is much endorsed by MOMA.


3) You can try TrueTyme for a while.

TT's potential benefits beyond enhanced feelings of well-being are not yet scientifically proven, but those are intriguing possibilities. One day if there is enough of a push from sufferers of circadian rhythm related ills, perhaps chronobiology scientists will do true time research. For now though, some TT users here and there are giving us details of their own color-coded MoodTyme mood journaling & analysis results and/or other other feedback. E.g., here is what avant garde artist and TrueTyme power-user, Alison Pilorz, told us about her own experiences using several of TrueTyme's features...

You can jump into a purchase of TrueTyme Full Features Forever here. But to better orient yourself so you can get more from its true time displays of sun and moon time, and other features like circadian and circalunar meditation, plus MoodTyme tracking and analysis of your moods, etc., we suggest you first take advantage of our free one week trial -- at the end of which you get to freely keep 1st level features.

Furthermore, if you prefer to know more details about TT before living with true time for a week, here from the Better Tymes Project, developer of TrueTyme, is a TTymely FAQ about our "moving forwards by moving back in time" smart clock app for Android phones, tablets and smartwatches. (And, hopefully one day soon, also for Apple and WEAR platforms -- as soon as we can find the right volunteers.)

Style AND SUBSTANCE For “Techno-Bohemian” Fashion Outlaws & Other Cultural Creatives, Always In The Moment And Ahead Of Your Times

TTCat2 “Out of the night that covers me/Black as the pit from pole to pole,/I thank whatever gods may be/For my unconquerable soul.” Much like those beginning words of William Ernest Henley’s immortal “Invictus” that have inspired generations of those seeking to return to old states of freedom from pain and suffering and/or move forward to new ones, so too the timeless words of “I Shall Rise” — the exquisitely cool poem of exquisitely cool Maya Angelou (may she rest in peace), which begins with:

You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I’ll rise. Does my sassiness upset you? Why are you beset with gloom? ‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells Pumping in my living room. Just like moons and like suns, With the certainty of tides, Just like hopes springing high,
I rise I rise I rise.

So we hope that you forgive us our above “cat’s meow” visual pun. Because we cannot stop thinking that — by enabling the actual Music of the Spheres” of Ms. Angelou’s eternal sun and moon risings and settings to uniquely be at hand in an eye-grabbing mobile phone, tablet and smartwatch app for anybody who wants to, at will, live in the “astro-logical” moment — our true time sun/moon/self app also is a kind of “cat’s meow”.

That said, if our “to thine self be true”/”in your face”, “techno-bohemian” (a very cool term, which has recently begun to be used by John Malkovich, who “lifts it with the author’s per-mission and I will endevour to use it well”, addition of sun AND moon time to corporate standard time seems “Malkovich cool” to you, perhaps you will pass along this recent Tweet of ours to those you care about — and especially if they, like you, are anti-establishment or other wise cool…

Per SciAm & TA, is a smartwatch w. an anti-estab self-help app/SMART watch-face cool? TrueTyme.org

The above question in the form of a Tweet is the result of us both recently reading a Scientific American article describing why wearing a smartwatch is still considered not cool by most people, and also reading The Atlantic’s recently published explanation of why the term “cool” can be seen as legitimate, anti-establishment behavior (mindfully intended to set oneself apart, while also leading the way).

What came to mind for us was this question: is using our unique kind of true time app on a smartwatch (in addition to running it a lot more conventionally on one’s smartphone, tablet — and now even HDTV) the pits of nerdiness? Or is it, time-wise — and maybe even health-wise, the height of being cool?

Any thoughtful answer that you might want to pass along to us will depend on if you see such a so-called “TTristWatch” as more like a pocket protector, or more like high fashion body armor? And that depends on if you can entertain the thought-provoking notion of our app possibly operating in an intriguingly anti-establishment way in the “chronobiology” space.

So before you come up with an answer (at least for yourself), and as you may not yet know about two of the most disregarded life-saving vs. life-threatening discoveries of the new science of circadian rhythms, why not quickly learn about these two very self-protective aspects of chronobiology, both of which have nothing to do with our app, per se. And everything to do with perhaps maximizing your chances of dodging two bullets: first, chronotherapy and then also ICU psychosis. Knowing about one and/or the other (and firmly doing something about it, if and when push comes to shove) might one day save your life and/or the lives of loved ones.

FWIW… The Samsung Gear Smartwatch joins the Sony SmartWatch as candidates for true time. In both cases, by turning them into very eye-catching “TTristWatches”. E.g.,

So, fashionistically-speaking, it’s your call… Side-load TrueTyme to your Samsung Gear, or add TrueTyme to your SmartWatch by connecting it to your Android smartphone, either way by getting TrueTyme from Google Play here… TT4Android Rel. 4.0 Trial
