Ubuntu Phone Clock 0.5 released with improved behavior and Ubuntu 12.04 support

Ubuntu is a project rooted into constantly landing innovations in the open, innovative technologies that generate interesting creative inspired-by applications, tools, eyecandy elements, etc.

Ubuntu Phone Clock is a fancy utility that expresses the time via a good-looking visual approach, borrowing modern shapes and colors from Ubuntu for phones' home screen.

The result is a window centering a round shape with constantly changing "clouds", view adding a classy look & feel to the desktop.

Ubuntu Phone Clock 0.5 has been released, bringing a more optimized-for-the-desktop interaction behavior.

The newly released 0.5 version comes with a minimize button (rendered on its main view), thus allowing users to 1-click away minimize the app, basically, acting as a regular desktop window.

Ubuntu Phone Clock can be per-user-preference positioned on various desktop areas, behavior enriched by the newly implemented ability to drag the app with the mouse pointer; clicking on & dragging Ubuntu Phone Clock allow the user to position it on a desired desktop space, removing the need to press the keyboard's Alt key.

Furthermore, the 0.5 release features support for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, enlarging its only-Ubuntu-12.10 initial coverage.
