I never thought I would want to know what time was in America, UK and India at the same time. However, Joy of Android has people from different continents working together. Because of the location differences, world clock apps for Android come in really handy. By using one of these great apps, I know when it’s OK to contact my editor. While there are no set rules for chats, it’s still appropriate to call at a human hour.
We have already covered clock apps and clock widgets in previous lists. Some weather apps and weather widgets for Android also come with a clock built into them. But this list will solely tackle the world clocks for Android. There is not much to the apps themselves but to provide a valuable and quality service. If you travel a lot and need a good companion clock for that, these will be great.
Note: The world clock apps for Android were tested on a Galaxy Note III smartphone. The apps performed fine, and there were no problems faced during the testing phase. None of the apps require an active internet connection to work.
World Clock & Widget
This is a simple and easy to use world clock app for Android. There is nothing much to the app apart from a great interface and simple usability. Tap on the menu button to add clocks to the table. This widget is a streamlined process that hardly takes more than a few seconds.
The black background gives the app a straightforward and down to business look. There is no customization available for the app, though. You will only get to see the world clocks and that is about it. You can change the 12H or 24H time display, though, which is a great feature for those used to the 24-hour format.Show Downloads
Simple World Clock Widget
Right from the name, Simple World Clock Widget for Android makes everything simplified. This is not an app, though; it is a home screen widget that can help you keep track of times across the globe.
At first I was skeptical but the time wall, as I like to call it, looked really interesting to me. The widget takes very little space on your home screen and consumes minimal resources. This means you can add as many world clock widgets on your screen as well want.
The best thing is, the tiles are somewhat customizable, so you don’t have to worry about uneven color schemes on your main screen.Show Downloads
This one is from Google, and it shows. Usually, this is preinstalled on most Android smartphones. But, in case your manufacturer didn’t bundle it in, this app is one of the best clock apps around. Because it’s made by the same company that makes the mobile OS you love so much, the app performs remarkably well.
Not that the clock by nature is very demanding, Goggle’s Clock works like clockwork. Using Google Clock, you can use you Android for an alarm clock, as well as a handy timer.
Press on the globe button to add new locations to your list. This app is an overall package, and I highly recommend it as your daily driver as well.Show Downloads
This app is the most productive in the whole list. Why is that?
It’s because it tells you a lot of information about the time zones by tapping on it. The app is stable and works great on almost any Android device. I really love the way the app handles the tablet interface too. I would go as far as to say that if you have a tablet, download this app on it.
You can also set alarms on the app as well. One great thing about the app is the Open Map feature. It allows you to see where the country is located right from the app itself.Show Downloads
Clocks around the world
I love the clocks displayed in airports. I’ve always wanted one for my bedroom; not because I needed it, but because it looks awesome. Clocks around the world knows that and delivers a similar experience. Sure you can use it to for actually knowing what time it is in Japan but it sure does look pretty.
Adding in new cities is reasonably easy, and the app works great even if you don’t have any internet connection. The design could have used a little lifting up as the app is using the same old design philosophy of Gingerbread.Show Downloads
These were some of the best world clock apps for Android. All of them provide the same service with minor changes here and there. Personally, I would install the Google Clock app and call it a day. But you may also love the dedicated world clock widget app that is a perfect blend of fast access and usability.
