It's ok, but...
I expected some level of control, or being able to display only the cities I wanted to have displayed to see instantly their time. It's a cool looking interface, however, the only way that I've found yet on iPad is just to select cities and see their time, one at a time. No locking of cities. Somewhere I saw it said "tap the screen" to reach controls, but that doesn't work. So, if you want to know the time in Paris, you'd better be good at geography because there are no labels. This is a new app for the iPad, so I'll give them somewhat of a break, but for $2.99, it's overpriced in my book.
Deserves to be higher in the app store
I gave this app five stars, though it's really deserves four stars. I'm just generally disappointed with the clock apps currently available for iPad. This one is very elegant, and one of the best, but could be improved with something like "favorite cities" or an alarm. Worth the $0.99!
Well, what did I want for 99 cents, anyway?
I LOOKS nice, with the lights showing populations centers in the "nighttime" part, however.....
Here in Alaska, in the summer, it's quite bright daylight at 6:30 pm, at 8:30 pm, and, in June, even at 10:30 and 11:30 pm.
Here it is, August 2nd, at 6:30 pm, and it's very bright outside my window, but the Qlock is showing it as dark.
Looks nice, but not very accurate.
