Thanks for the new features. I noticed some graphical glitches in the display, and the convert function doesn't work properly (try to convert once then back... the values changes everytime, ie, it's not constant). Also, please include the timezone and date in the converter. :)
Keep it up!

Swatch "beats", aka "internet time", is basically pointless- if you want a truly universal time, just use Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). It's nothing but a cheap marketing ploy.

There is a reason time zones were invented, by the way.

We know it's silly, but we don't care.

Though it is a pretty slick marketing gimick, and one that Swatch has held since 1998. It was also tied in with the Sega Dreamcast game Phantasy Star Online, which used swatch beats to tell time during the game.

The notion is that you divide the day up into 1000
"beats", and that it's the same "beat" number everywhere in the world at the same time.

You can then say to someone, "Call me at 500" without having to worry about what time zone you're in, they're in, you'll be in (if you're travelling), daylight savings time, etc.

Nice. I hope the developer add all the features his other app (the menubar item) has. At least, the converting function. Keep it up! :)
