Google released a standalone clock in the Play Store this week. While Mountain View has been keen on serving up pieces of the Nexus experience for a while now, this latest release provides more evidence that the company is going all-in on a la carte apps.

With one hand, Apple gives its drivers the largest selection of third-party music and audio apps. With the other, it takes away all other choices with zero support for third party messaging apps.
