Description

We're all thinking the same thing; isn't telling time just too easy? Shouldn't there be a more complicated way to tell time? Well now there is... with Fraction Clock. Fraction Clock tells time in reduced fractions. That is, it takes the current number of seconds (e.g. 38), over the total number of seconds (60), then reduces it to its lowest form. It provides an interesting new way of telling time. For example, "We are 3/10 of the way through the hour." You hear people say "It's a quarter past ten." Well now it's time to take that to the next level. What time is it, they ask? "It's five twelfths past three." Hours are in military time, so 7 P.M. would show up as 19/24. To decode the exact time, just take the denominator and figure out what number you need to multiply it by to get 60 (or 24 for hours). Then take that same number and multiply it by the numerator. For example, if the minutes say 13/15, 15 times 4 gets you 60. So 13 times 4 is 52, which is the current number of minutes. For hours, if it says 3/4, 4 times 6 gets you 24. So 3 times 6 is 18 (to convert from military time to standard time simply subtract 12), so it is 6 P.M. Whoever thought a clock would need such a long instruction manual! It's the only clock that keeps you sharp on your multiplication! Features: Portrait and Landscape modes, simply rotate your device to switch between them. Vertical and horizontal fraction formats, tap to switch between them. Possible updates include: Swipe to change to a monospace font. Bottom menu with button for instructions. Feel free to leave suggestions for future updates in the reviews!
