Ratings and Reviews
So great it's now available on iOS!
Been using this on my Mac for years and now it's finally on iOS! Scheduling meetings around the world is now even easier on the go on my phone instead of waiting to get back to my computer to use the Mac app.
I regularly talk to friends and businesses in different time zones. I’ve used and loved the Mac version of this app, and the iOS version is just as good, and fits in perfectly with the modern look of IOS12 on my iPhone X.
Great App. Needs a Help System
I have loved this app on MacOS for years. And I love its iOS implementation as much, or more.
. Great capability to plan multi-time zone meetings. By a simple scrolling motion, you can change the contemplated time of meeting in every zone and see whether the time is within business hours, whether it is light out (with a beautifully sunshine map), and what day it is.
. It has a built-in Pomodoro timer, barely mentioned, that helps you focus for blocks of time, then take a break. This replaces another standalone app for me.
. It can connect with the built-in calendar to show you what’s on the docket, and help you plan meetings.
. It has colorblind accessibility settings. I’m one of the 5% of men who is colorblind, so I appreciate this.
. The app is new on iOS and complex, and there is no help system I can find.
. Some approaches could benefit from a little home brew user experience research. For example, the develop could just ask an inexperienced friend “Hey Ms New User, looking at this app, how would you delete a time zone clock?” and then just sit back and watch that friend struggle to figure out what most people find intuitive, and then implement that. My guess is that some, maybe most, would first touch the clock they want to delete. They might press it harder. They might try to swipe it up, down, sideways to see if it exposed a delete/rename/whatever option bar. None such things happen. You have to click the ... at the bottom, and then press the garbage can. Normally users expect the garbage can to be something you click after you select the item to be deleted, but this reverses the sequence we are most used to. Cognitive dissonance. There are tons of little idiosyncrasies like this.
. There are minor cosmetic bugs, like the configuration that says “set the bottom right area of clocks” which changes the top left area. :)
. Although the configuration system says “double click the calendar to get the list of events, I tried all sorts of gyrations, but I can only see the first event in a day. I am only realizing now that “double click” must be a carryover from the Mac version, and there must be some other way, or maybe there is no way, to do this.
This app costs $7. I like this app on the Mac. I like it enough on iOS to give the developer the benefit of the doubt. Both the Mac and the iOS app are sufficiently innovative and useful to pay for, assuming these idiosyncrasies get fixed. If they don’t, that would be a shame, because many people will not benefit from it due to counterintuitive user experience and the lack of a help system.
All that being said, I give it a 5.
Thanks for your feedback.
I'm acknowledging your comments and will use them to improve The Clock in future update.
Regarding the help page, it is coming soon. You can access it from the settings, Help. But the help document is not yet updated for the iOS version.
Regarding the bottom right, yes it needs to be updated (more dynamic) as the position of the complication is different in full screen iPad mode and split screen mode as the views are different.
Regarding the Double Click on iPad, I'm surprised. It should be Double Tap (strings for macOS and iOS are different). Could you contact me by email for further analysis. Further more when you double tap you should be sent to the events list of the day.
Do not hesitate to contact me by email for further investigation.
