World Time In Words is a menubar clock and time conversion app that tells you the time and date in plain English for your own time zone and for any others you choose.

World Time In Words takes you away from numbers and shows you the time as a complete sentence. No more worrying about whether it is morning or evening or whether it is yesterday, today or tomorrow in some other part of the world.

Do you plan on phoning an overseas friend in the middle of the night? How about scheduling an online meeting with people in different time zones? Or even checking what time the next big keynote will start in your time?

Set up World Time In Words up with all the time zones you need to check. Pop down the menu to see the local time in each of your selected zones shown as a sentence. This is easier to comprehend and much less prone to error.

If you need to plan a meeting or phone call, select "What time will it be when…". Use the slider to adjust the hour in your local zone and the corresponding hour in your selected world zones will appear.

Use the Preferences to add or delete time zones and to arrange their order. And if you like using this app, a review or rating in the App Store would be greatly appreciated.

If you call folks internationally GET THIS APP!

This little app has saved my bacon on numerous occassions. Telling me the time in words is its least amazing feat. I use it to tell what time it is in remote parts of the world where I need to place a call. It not only shows the current time anywhere, but has a cool screen with a slider that will tell you a remote time in future or past. And its accessible from my menubar! Bravo!!
