Use your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch to display "Mars time", the timekeeping system that NASA scientists use to monitor the activity of Mars Rovers. NASA's newest Mars Rover Curiosity was launched on November 26, 2011 and landed on Mars on August 5, 2012.
Mars Clock is an iPad/iPhone/iPod utility that displays accurate local Mars time at the Curiosity landing site. Sunrise and sunset times are also displayed so that daylight hours, when the Rover is most active, can be determined.
-Local mean solar time for Mars Curiosity Rover
-Coordinated Mars Time
-Sunrise/sunset times for Curiosity landing site.
-Current Martian season
-Curiosity Mission Sol (Martian Days since landing date)
-Utility to convert a Martian Sol to an Earth Date, or an Earth Date to a Sol

Mars Clock is a Universal App designed for the iPad with the same functionality on both the iPad and iPhone. The only thing missing on the iPhone app is information about, and a large image of, the Curiosity Rover.
