Found this app while trying to teach my daughter how to read a clock. She wanted to stay past her bed time to keep using it. One improvement I would request is the option of having the app ask her to set time using only minutes and hours rather than “half past”, or “a quarter to” format. I would like her to learn to set the clock to “twelve forty five” or “seven thirty” correctly before tackling “a quarter to one” and “half past seven”. For now I keep “translating” to the simpler hours/minutes format every time the app asks for something like “ten to nine”. The automated voice is also a bit of a let down. Although perfectly understandable it sounds like a robo-call. A human recording, though a lot more work, would make it much friendlier.
