I’m excited to share with you World Time Widget by Lewis Smith! I wrote last week about why I recommend it, but wanted to provide a review this week so you can see how it works and why you’d want to get it. Some time apps are complicated and thus not useful, but World Time Widget focuses on doing one thing and doing it very well. Unlike many timezone apps that are spammy, pester for reviews, or display annoying ads, World Time Widget is designed simply and cleanly to get you the information you want, as you want it.
When you launch the app, you’ll be presented with a simple overview of how to enable the Today Widget, then you’ll see a simple interface. Hit the plus sign, search (or scroll) for the cities you want, arrange them in the order you like, and you’re done! There’s a handy toggle for 12/24-hour time, based on your preference. This is what it looks like setting it up: After you enable the Today Widget, here’s how World Time Widget appears in your Today view using 12-hour or 24-hour time: One well-considered detail is that World Time Widget allows you to edit and even re-name the chosen timezones. You can choose a different city name or re-name timezones by the people you contact there, so you don’t have to remember who is where. It’s a tiny feature, but incredibly useful to show you, at a glance, what time it is for those important to you. World Time Widget is a universal app for iPhone & iPad, available for just $0.99. If you ever have to deal with multiple time zones, it is worth every penny.
