Popularized by the Simpson's season 10 episode, "They Saved Lisa's Brain" and implemented by French Revolutionaries from 1793 to 1795, metric time consists of 10 hours per day and 100 minutes per hour. Mid-day is 5:00 and midnight is 10:00, easier than imperial numbers for orienting your day-to-day activities. With the clock's simple and direct display, you can show your friends a different way to tell time, or set up a display on your desk, with your iPhone or iPad.

Metric minutes are a little bit longer than imperial minutes, so be patient when watching the time progress.

Because there are 100 minutes in an hour, the time 4:85 is equivalent to 4.85 (decimal); click on the time to convert between colon or a period in the time display.

Click the paint brush button to change the colors of the interface. Also, switch back and forth between local metric time and Universal metric time with the globe button.

Mr,Sketch ,

Good but almost 5 stars if...

App is great but if there were option of being able to see the metric seconds that would make this 5 star

The timepiece you didn't realize you needed

Amuse your friends and confound your enemies when they ask the time and you show them that it's 4:99 PM!

Inspired by a famous Simpsons episode, the app has portrait and landscape mode and different color options.

Now if I could only give 10 out of 10 stars instead of 5 out of 5...

Love it!

I made this in Flash (had it on my website forever) waaaay back in the day (AS2 -and eventually converted to AS3) and was super excited when the app store came out to upload it. For a time, i was happy.
Then Flash died and i couldn’t create apps without learning obj-c, so it soon slipped into the back of my mind (still have my Flash files though!).
It just popped into my head today how cool it would be to have it on my Apple Watch 😉😉, but to find your app made me happy i wasn’t the only one who wanted it.
Well done!

soooo, Apple Watch app??
I’d pay an in-app purchase for this in a heartbeat (😉🤣).
(my goodness i’m a dork)
