Minor New Feature

I have been working on some major new enhancements to the Desk Clock over the past two months.  Primary development is about 75% done or so, and I've been pretty happy with the results.  I'm hoping to have it to my beta testers later this week.  In the mean time, I do have one new minor feature that was requested via the comments (although I would prefer to take suggestions via email).  There's now an option to turn on / off the "heartbeat" (blinking colon in the time).  Since this was a pretty simple request, I figured I would take some time and put that in.  The two new text strings are being translated and once that's done I'll publish it to the market.

I'm also on the verge of another milestone, 100 ratings.  All in all, I'm very happy and surprised with the usage.  Google tells me that I've had ~15k downloads and ~3.5k active installs.  It's running in countries all over the world (UK, Germany, India, Korea, Japan, Australia).  Now if I could only get more people to use that donate button...
