What's New in Version 1.1
I tried to come up with something witty but I got nowhere. I figured it was best to release this update ASAP rather than spend time coming up with a cool release note. Without further ado, I present Globaclock 1.1 packed with tons of new features and fixes.
Critical (READ THIS!): I fixed alarms that would not fire and rogue local notifications. It is recommended that you remove all your alarms and reschedule them. If you are still experiencing issues with the alarm system after this update, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
-New free spin mode. Make a rotation gesture with one finger to advance the clock forward or backward.
-Sort function for both the “Add/Remove” cities list and the alarm list.
-Alarms are now separated into sections by timezone.
-If you double tap an alarm, you can get info about the next time it will fire. Ex: “This alarm is set for ~7 hours and 18 minutes from now. It will fire at 5:00 PM local time today.”
-When picking a timezone for an alarm, you can directly pick from your list of cities added in the “Add/Remove” screen by touching the segmented control in the top right corner.
-The main clock screen now displays an alarm icon in the bottom left corner if an alarm is active. If tapped, the app will go to the alarm list screen.
-A better color picker that allows for nearly unlimited colors.
-You can now highlight your local timezone and display numbers on the face of the clock.
-New graphics for “Add/Remove” city list screen and alarm list screen.
-The app now respects the device's date format settings.
-When changing between time and date/time mode in the alarm creation screen, the repeat row will animate in/out.
-Added GMT to the list of available cities.
-Fixed a crash that would occur when changing the order of cities in “Add/Remove” city list screen.
-Fixed time of Adelaide.
-Fixed a typo in the font list.
Known issues (I'm working on them so if you do experience these issues, I am deeply sorry and I offer you a free internet cookie*):
-Background alarms may not fire if you change your timezone after setting them. You can fix this by turning it off and on. Alarms that fire while you are in the app are not affected.
-The bottom part of the popover on iPads may resize erratically.

**What are you doing still reading this long and detailed release note. Go use Globaclock! Check out all the new features instead of reading about them. I mean it. Now. You have 5 seconds. 5...4...3...2...1...that's what I thought.
