Review: iSocialClock allows you to customize photos and settings for your iPad clock

Create a socially-fueled clock on your iPad that you can share with friends.

iSocialClock is an easy-to-use digital clock tool for your iPad. It lacks additional features beyond its core time keeping functionality, but does allow you to customize it in some fun ways. From adding your own photos to the screen to saving and sharing the screen and any of the shots thereof with friends or family via social media, there is more depth to this app than first meets the eye.

When you open iSocialClock, you're greeted with the time, location, weather, and a handful of random stock photos. You can go to the settings menu and change all of these to reflect your personal style, pulling images from your photo library, uploading them from your camera, or downloading them from Facebook or other social accounts. The app connects with both Instagram and Facebook for social integration and you can change the fonts in the app, as well, to further customize it. While this is the extent of the customization you can do, it works quite well in practice -- even if the clock does little more than tell the time.

If you want to customize and share your clock with friends and family from your iPad, then this is a decent app with which to do so. It's not graphically advanced, nor does it contain a ton of advanced sharing or social settings beyond the photo integration, but it does more than many other apps in the same category and is fun because of it.
