I see. Thanks. Did some of the adjustments mentioned. Few things I cannot do is that:
1. Font size (tall): 170. Its too big with the default font, left at default settings.
2. Does not have a proximity/light sensor function. Dock clock
has this function meaning it will always auto into clock mode and I can permanently use it as clock during the day. It knows when to dim the screen automatically. Make sense since the alarm clock pro app was meant to use at night.
3. Fonts. Anyway to add fonts/skins/theme? I've cycled through the included fonts but stayed with default. Another weird issue with fonts, different fonts have different sizes. A 170 default does not look the same as 170 dot matrix font.

Does that look like what you're after?
No idea. Looks nice. Will give this a try.
Ok, here is what I've learned.
This app is good in its own ways. The best case scenario for this app is actually for an unused/old tablet hanging on the wall or desk becoming a permanent clock. The clocks are pretty. I did wait 1 full minute in digital clock widget just to see if the min will flip like HTC sense clock, but it didn't :P
The app has a bed time/sleep cycle app which is handy as I have a dedicated bed-time only app. Also it has a sunrise alarm and a nap alarm.
As a dock clock, you need to set it up manually, which is fine. However, without the moving display clock (to prevent screen burning), this app does not shift pixels like the other 2 apps, so there is a risk of burning pixels on the screen with prolong use.
As a dedicated desk clock, the desk clock app is the better app than both the double twist alarm and alarm clock pro. However, alarm clock pro has more features/tweaks built into the app, so I don't need to have tasker profiles to launch the app. As an alarm clock/desk clock, both twist alarm clock and alarm clock pro are almost the same minus one or two features which the other does not have. Double twist reminds me a lot of apple apps. It is polished app. What it does, it does it very well. Not much you can change in the settings.
Looks like I have to wait before someone decides to built an app that has the desk clock dock app for the desk clock, alarm clock pro and double twist alarm clock for the alarm function, and alarm clock pro's tweaking settings. Judging on the features I want in an app, this is definitely going to be a paid app.
