Tap That App is a monthly segment where we feature an app our editors think is cool.
The phrase “it’s five o’clock somewhere” sure comes in handy when you’re ready to pop a cork, but it can be a nuisance when trying to schedule a Skype date with a friend in Seattle (“My Sunday morning at 6am… no, 7am. Wait, wait, plus 15 hours would be my 8am!”). You know the drill.
Enter World Time Buddy by Helloka: an app that lets you compare the real time in different cities across the world on a simple, user-friendly interface. Instead of just working as a world clock, however – as plenty of websites exist for that – Time Buddy functions as a time zone converter, meeting scheduler and more, making it an invaluable tool for the adventurous traveler or digital nomad.
Say, for example, you take a month-long trip out to sea with no land in sight. Time Buddy will define the precise hour on the clock as you pass through different time zones and help you navigate.
In a less extreme example, the app makes scheduling conference calls, webinars or interviews a breeze and keeps the savvy stock market player on their game. No more missing important appointments with real estate agents or calls with family back home.
Available for both iOS and Android devices, World Time Buddy operates in English, German, Northern Sami and Spanish. Download it for free this fall before the rest of the world turns their clocks back an hour for daylight saving time.
