What's New in Version 2.0.17
- Minor updates
Not even worth the free download
While this app has settings for different timezones, it does nothing more than show the time remaining as a small clock at the top.
It allows for a playback of the countdown broadcast, but it doesn't sync up automatically to the time zone you are in.
All it shows is a bunch of tweets people posted about the new year, and a still image of the Times Square ball as a backdrop. No animation or sound as the new year approaches, no big numbers on the screen for the last few seconds. It might be more entertaining fir those living in the same time zone as New York, but if you live anywhere else on the planet, don't bother.
You had one job...
What's the one thing you'd want this app to do? Let you watch the ball drop at midnight in your time zone, right? But here it is right before midnight in San Francisco, and I've set my time zone, and it's telling me it's two minutes to midnight (like I didn't know that)--but when I click on the video, it says the event is over (like I didn't know THAT) and that the video is processing and I can watch it later. What a stupid app.
Horrible waste of time
So app said it would allow you to replay the ball drop from time square, well it only let those on the east coast time actually watch it, everyone else it said to come back later......
