The World Clock FREE, by Andrei Kolev, is a fantastic and free iPad world clock app that provides many unique time conversion features all within one mobile app. There is a real-time scrolling Earth map, precise day/night map, network time synchronization, and the ability to send email meeting invitations with a pre-built timetable for selected time zones – plus more.
Time is one thing we can all relate to. As a matter of fact, I am fascinated by the element of time. I guess it’s because I feel like I never have enough of it. Whatever the reason for my fascination with time, there are many time-related features in this clock app that others will also enjoy. One of the reasons I really dig this international clock app is because you can travel to any part of the world you want with the tap of a few fingers.
The World Clock Free App Overview
This free iPad Travel app lets you track your time zone and time for other places around the world with a lot of features that you typically only find in high-end Paid iPad applications. World Clock Free allows you to keep track of the time difference for 4 different cities providing you with very detailed information, 2 clock views (analog or digital), and appointment invitation functionality. Although World Clock Free is a great free clock app, there are some limitations. It’s only available for the iPad, and it limits you to 4 world clocks. Additional feature differences between this free world clock app and its paid big brother The World Clock are: support for iPhone and iPod Touch, up to 24 world clocks, numerous different clock types, and no ads.
I have to say that the coolest visual feature to this free iPad app is the “map view.” This lets you drag with your finger right or left to change the timezone and see where it is night and day all throughout the world.
There are way too many details to list in regards to this Travel app, but let’s take a look at some of my favorite features: 1.) It provides time for more than 192,000 cities in 230 countries – and growing, 2.) Network time sync, automated or manual, and 3.) Settings for just about everything time related, including comprehensive daylight savings time settings.
Most people don’t get too excited over time apps, but I do with time apps like this. That’s because there is something really cool about knowing and “seeing” that while I’m working, other people and business associates in faraway places like Indonesia have finished their work day or are sleeping. Or the knowledge that I can respond to someone in the UK in just enough time, knowing they’re 6 hours ahead – with just a quick look at this clock app.
A feature that is perfect for anyone doing international business or with relatives in other time zones/countries, which is quite common these days, is the appointment setter. You can quickly create an email based on your current clocks, complete with a time table showing what time the appointment is and the respective time for each corresponding city. This ensures that everyone is on the same page.
Besides the high-end functionality in this free iPad clock app, you get an attractive and intuitive user interface that easily lets you manage all the functionality without having to take 20 minutes or more to figure out how to use it.
How To Use This App
Overall, this app is very intuitive, but here are a few tips to get you up and running much faster. First, to add a clock tap on the far left top small clock icon. Next, don’t start to search for a city until you define the country. This got me a bit frustrated, but I quickly figured this out. For example, if you want Chicago, IL., you will have to start your search off with the United States. You then search using your city keyword, in this case Chicago, IL. Second, the settings button is basically self explanatory and includes a variety of setting features like 24 hour time format and different clock face settings.
The double clock icon, left of the date in the top center, shows a much more detailed view of the time for your selected cities. Here you can send invites for meetings, arrange the cities by various factors and add events to your calendar. There is a button to share time to via email. Lastly, there is a super easy-to-use Help button, on the top far right with the universal “i” or information icon.
The World Clock Free is a great useful addition to anyone’s iPad. Time freaks like me will especially like this mobile app. And if you’re look for additional functionality beyond the free version, the paid app version is iOS Universal and called The World Clock. It allows up to 24 clocks and other useful features for only $1.99. You can download this free Travel app using the link below.
