I like the app and use it when flying. It would be great if the compilation would show the actual Zulu hour without having to tap on the app on my iWatch to see the actual Zulu time. It always shows “22Z”. Not a big deal, but just one more step when things get busy in the cockpit. It came in super handy for a flight recently though when ATC asked for a position report when I wasn’t in a radar environment. I tapped on the compilation and gave them position info with Zulu times. Also great for confirming TAF’s, METAR’s and ATIS info that are all done in Zulu time.
This app is great, except it doesn’t have the one thing I needed and purchased it for: complications! See, Apple already lets you see UTC time and even includes it as a complication. But in order to see UTC or “Zulu” time in 24 hour time mode, you have to switch the entire clock to 24 hour mode. What I need to do is be able to see local time in 12 hour mode but Zulu time in 24 hour mode as a complication on the same watch face! It’s so frustrating that neither Apple includes a way to do this, and developers haven’t come up with UTC time app that has complications! And if they did, I would imagine they would inadvertently make it so that the 12/24 hour system setting dictates whether the complication displays in 12 hour or 24 hour mode, which would put me back at square one. Please make a complication for this app, and leave the time in 24 hour mode or make it an adjustable setting and not based on the system clock. Thank you!
Somewhat nice app. I use it for logging ham radio contacts and need to glance at it often. It needs to be always on when I’m operating. I imagine other users may need to use it in a way where it needs to be always on. It’s a real pain in the neck to always have to go into the general settings of your mobile device to change the Lock Screen to “never” when starting the app, then change it back when finished using it. I have an alarm clock app that has such a setting and can stay on all night. It should be quite easy to add a setting or option for this in the app. Otherwise, this would be a five star app.
The app is great, almost. The widget does not update the local time. When pressed to open the app, the local time displays correctly, but not on the Home Screen via the widget itself. Derek thanks for reaching out but the links to contact you directly are broken (Not Found message). On the widget the local time remains in the previous time zone I was in. It doesn’t update if I just switch in and out of Airplane Mode. If I restart my phone the local time will update. Again, even if the widget doesn’t update, if I open the app the local time is correct. This is only an issue with the local time. Zulu time is correct. I’m running Version 3.5 on iPhone 8 iOS 14.2. Hope this helps.
Hi love to app very useful. Only complaint is on the Apple Watch you swapped the placement of ZuluTime. On my iPhone it displays Zulu above local time in dashboard it’s the same but when I open the app on Apple Watch it’s local time on top and Zulu below after the update. Please update so it’s Zulu above local time like it was and matches the iPhone app. Please. *update: Thank you Derek for listening to your customers and updating and making fixes to your app in a timely manner. Love your app very useful.
The phone app works fine, and the watch complication shows the current hour in Zulu time. However, it does not show minutes which makes the watch complication too imprecise for things like aviation. Edit: this is due to limitations in the watchOS API.
For 99 cents the app is ok. Would be worth more and reviewed higher if it could be used as a complication rather than just an app and agree Zulu should be in 24 hour format. Developer mentioned this is difficult to do and keep clock accurate but I rarely need a real time count of the seconds. Make the complication by creating your own time digits, drop the seconds so update once a minute, and options for 12/24 format on local and/or Zulu
An older review noted that the iWatch complication show only 22Z (for example) instead of full hours and minutes (like 2215Z, for example). The developer response indicated that this was fixed, which is why I purchased the app. I may be doing something wrong, but I can not get the iWatch complication to show more than just hours in Zulu time.
I love the app and using the complication on my iwatch but part of the day It does not show the time. I think it has to do with the font. I hope you can fix it. it seems to involve the zero and two. it seems to show all the times that begin with a one. Thanks for looking into it.
Now I can convert time zones to Zulu time in a snap. It has a very nice and intuitive interface. The only thing I wish it had was another button at the bottom that showed you a US map with time zone divisions to show which time zone each state is in.
I can’t ever get the small widget on the infograph modular watch face to show the right time. For example it says 17Z now but when I tap it, it shows the correct Zulu time of 20:13. This is an Apple Watch 4 and an iPhone 11 Pro Max running iOS 13.3. Watch os is 6.1.1. Support page has no “submit” or send button or I’d have sent this information privately rather than through a review.
ZuluTime is fully customizable and automatically syncs and displays the correct time in ZULU according to location chosen. In addition, you may choose the arrangement of multiple ZULU TIME clocks and manually calibrate the UTC of that location.
In my Apple7 I applied this app only to discover it does not readily display the actual ZULU time in the display of my watch. What it shows is “21Z Zulu time”. Well, that’s not really helpful for me at all. I have to push the stem in to change the display to the actual ZULU time, in hours and minutes with seconds. Not a time or “hand use saver” nor “attention saver”. It takes more than simply gazing at the watchface and scanning it in one eye movement to gain the needed information. Granted, I’m not a pilot. But, as a licensed shortwave operator, There are times multiple calls are incoming as fast or faster than I can document them . I just want the real time.
Very simple and straightforward.. the way I like it!! This may be a silly question and excuse my newness to the Apple Watch, but can I set your app as one of my watch faces or do I have to launch the app every time from my watch?
This app is extremely useful for me. However, what would improve its experience for me would be the addition of complications for the Apple Watch so that the offset time you set in the app can be displayed on the watch face. Other than that, it’s great!
Local time is not displaying properly on the widget. Inside the app show the correct time, the widget show 2 hours earlier. Worked fine before iOS upgrade to 16.4. support website doesn’t seem to work.
Having problems on my Apple Watch. Every two or three day Z time looses its time and gradually reverts to local time? I have to reset Z time each time thru the iPhone app to get Z time back on my watch. Is this a common problem? Please help Tried to contact support wrote the above and there is no way to send comment? Please fix loss of time on Apple Watch. It’s been several months now since you said you would look into it.
Zulu time displays properly on the phone, but it doesn’t update properly in the watch complication. If you change complications, and then go back to the Zulu complication it show correct time, but eventually it stops updating. Needs to be fixed!
A simple iPhone, Apple Watch and iPad app to see Local and Zulu time (GMT) or multiple time zones in a single glance. Useful for pilots in getting weather briefings and filing flight plans, or Ham radio operators to do timezone conversions. No more worrying about getting the timezone offset correct or Daylight Savings Time conversions. Easily convert from different time zones, including times in the future or past. On the iPhone: - The Zulu Time page gives a quick view of both Zulu and Local times - The Offset Time page allows you to see Zulu and local time either in the future or past by entering an offset via the Offset button. Tapping either Zulu or Local times will allow you to enter a time in the future or past, synchronizing both Local and Zulu times with that offset. The offset only applies to this view (except on the iPad the offset applies to everything on the page) - The Multiple Zones page allows you to add as many time zones as you wish in a scrolling view. Clicking on any Time Zone will allow you to change it. on iPad: All information is combined on one screen. You have user customizable time zones on the right hand side. On the left, you have Zulu and Local time and one customizable time zone. The offset to see future or past time can be done via the Offset button or tapping any of either the Zulu, Local or Custom time buttons on the left. On the Watch: Complications available in all watch faces making for glanceable ZuluTime and access to the app, which gives offset able time computation.
