Features

  • Winner of the "Total Innovation" award in the App Innovation contest sponsored by Intel and CodeProject.
  • Works without an internet connection and doesn’t waste your data plan.
  • The live start screen tile shows you the time for the first four cites in your favorites list.
  • Add up to forty cities to your favorites by clicking on a map, typing in a city or country name, or browsing a list of major cites by country.
  • Uncertain about how to spell “Arkhangel’sk”? Don’t worry, with our smart “fuzzy” lookup system you can find bizarrely named cities in a flash.
  • There are huge variations in daylight savings time (a.k.a. summer time) policies in across the world; this app can help avoid problems such as missed calls.
  • View the date and day of the week, as well as the time, so calls across the International Date Line don't get mixed up.
  • With a glance, the color coding shows you if it’s daytime, nighttime, or near sunrise or sunset.
  • Display time using a 24-hour clock or using AM/PM.
  • Rearrange your city information to keep your favorite places near the top.
  • You can choose to see or hide: country names, international dialing codes, time zones, and/or sunrise & sunset times.
  • Don’t get stuck with just a list view or just a time zone map. We give you the flexibility to see your information on a map, in your list of favorites, or in the call planning chart.
  • If you have a connection, World Time Clock synchronizes your preferences across multiple devices using very little bandwidth.
  • Refined to take advantage of Windows 8.1. All features work when then application window is full screen or narrow (split screen).

App details


Version notes

You don’t even have to open the app to check the current time in the places that are most relevant to you. With a glance at the live start screen tile, you can see the time for the first four cites in your favorites list (or two cities if you prefer the small start tile). When the app starts the first time, you will be asked to ‘Let World Time Clock run in the background’; if you allow this, World Time Clock will show times on a live start screen tile.

Call Planner is Cool; Rest of App is Not

The call planner app is really cool and is the main reason I got this app. However, I use a different app as my desktop "world clock" because this app is just not a very good world clock. In the primary viewing mode, the font is so small that you can't read the time clearly. There is plenty of space on the tiles, they just use a small font for some strange reason. Also, I don't find the "international dialing codes" that useful and you should be able to turn that off and use that extra space to display everything else in a larger font. I thought the map view would be cool based on the screenshots, but unfortunately it's poorly implemented. For each city there is a tiny little text box with extremely tiny font so you can't read the city name or the time of day. Again, they waste screen space with international dialing codes. These text boxes should display ONLY the city name and time of day, in LARGE font. Also, for cities near the edge of the map the text box overflows the map.

Complete, easy to use, nice layout.

Complete world clock that is easy to use and it has a nice, compact layout. Live tile works as expected.

Great functional app.

Perfect on my Surface RT, particularly in landscape mode. I do a lot of calls around the world in the course of my day job and this is a perfect little call planner for level setting my brain on rational overlapping work times. Update: After the latest update (live tile update), I like this app even better (I already gave it 5 stars before). I've now moved it to be my first top left corner app (the pole position app!) as I can see my top time zones in a glance.

Live start screen tile now shows times

Hi, I am the app developer. As of November 27, 2012 an update is available that includes a live start screen tile (as several people have requested). Now, without even opening the app, you can see the time for the first four cites in your favorites list (or two cities if you prefer the small tile) on your start screen. Enjoy and thanks for the suggestion! Alan

Nicely executed and very useful. Worth the money.

This is a very useful, very well thought out application. Works well and adds a lot of features into a clean UI. For 5+ stars: 1) Live tiles for selected cities would be cool 2) Ability to edit or add a city. For example the app would not accept roughly 1/3rd of the cities I wanted to add. But I know all the facts needed about those cities, longitude and latitude, timezone, dialing code, etc etc.

Great app

Now it just needs pinned tiles so I can add city times to my Start screen.

Great App

Same feedback as others - would be great to be able to set a live tile. Do a lot of work in other countries and this is a great way to quickly get what time it is in that market.

Needs a Live Tile

I really like the design of this app. Specifically, I like the timelines that compare other locations to my current location and highlight their prime calling times; the app works great for that. The one feature it desperately needs is a live tile that rotates through my current time and, optionally, the time of cities I select from the main screen's cities. I would pay up to $2 for an app that does that nicely.
