TOKYO (MacHouse) – Life was quite tough for us for the last 2 weeks. Some 14 months ago, we switched software development platforms from Mac OS X to Windows. We were forced to switch development platforms again since Microsoft treats desktop application developers as pieces of trash. Heck… Learning a totally new software language is never easy. La vida no es facil. My Spanish teacher was right after all. Anyway, we are now actively developing iOS applications.
Our very first iOS application is called WorldTimez. It’s developed exclusively for iPad. WorldTimez allows the user to run the real-time digital clock at 21 locations around the globe. It’s quite similar to the digital clock feature of our existing Windows software title called AllTimez. WorldTimez has one feature that makes it different from AllTimez. It lets you see the time difference between each location and Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) or home (default system time).
- Run the time (digital clock) at 21 locations around the globe.
- Choose one of six languages for location names.
- Select ‘Time’ to show the current time or ‘Date’ to show the current date.
- Display the time in 12-hour or 24-hour systems.
- Show the time differences between each location and Greenwich Mean Time or home.
- Switch date formats (month/day or day/month).
Only the landscape orientation (horizontal) is available because the user must be able to see all locations at a glance in the Mercator projection style.
We submitted it to Apple‘s App Store for review just a few hours. Hopefully, it’ll be available at iTunes soon.
- iOS 6.0 or higher
Note: Release dates are ones when updates are announced here, not when updates are actually released at Mac App Store. We make no promise that they will be accepted by iTunes Connect and then released at Mac App Store.
1.0.2 (Released on September 6, 2013)
- The application keeps the time for Wellington, New Zealand.
1.0.1 (Released on July 13, 2013)
- Some international city names are corrected.
- The launch image has changed.
WorldTimez is a product of MacHouse.
