World Time In Words is a clock and time converter app that 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. Scroll through the list 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, tap "What time will it be…". Use the slider to adjust the hour in your local zone and the corresponding hour in your selected world zones will appear.

Tap the "+" button to add or delete time zones.

Your top three selected time zones can also be added to your Notification Centre as a widget. Click Edit and drag to change the order of time zones in the table to decide which ones appear. Then swipe to your widgets page, scroll to the bottom and click the Edit button to add the Time in Words widget.

What’s New

Version 5.0

Version 5.0 is a complete re-design with a new name to make the iOS app more like my matching macOS app.
The emphasis is on world time conversions, with the new interface showing as many time zones as you like in a single screen.
Add & removing time zones, re-ordering them and checking "what time will it be..." is now even easier.

Change has ruined this app.

This was the best Word Clock bar non until they changed it. You used to have just your time zone in words on the screen, not any more. Now there are 4 time zones on your screen like it or not. What a tragic loss. If there is a way to show one time zone I would appreciate knowing how to do it. I am just sick at how you destroyed the best Word Clock online. It is very upsetting!

Developer Response ,

Hi Karl, sorry you don’t like the re-design. I didn’t change it without a lot of thought, but I understand your disappointment if the old design was exactly what you liked. You can remove all time zones but your own using the Edit button but that will not give you back the full screen display you were used to.

Default colors all black

Couldn't see it when first downloaded because the colors were all set to black.

Great, free, and customizable

Cool color options and 4" support is a plus. I'd like to have the option to tap to hide controls and status bar.
