WorldTime Widget presents you with a map of the earth and shows the areas where it is day and night.

It also functions as a "worldtime" clock, allowing you to see the time around the world. By default, it will be the area where you are, but you can pick any other from the list. When you pick a region, the time will update and the timezone abbreviation will be shown next to the clock. A star next to this indicates it is a daylight saving time.

You can also see the effect of changing the time or the date in two ways:

What's New
Version 1.1:
  • After user feedback, you now select a region rather than a time zone. The regions are in alphabetical order, making them easier to find. The time zone itself is displayed next to the clock. The name of the time zone reflects if it is "daylight saving" or not. A star next to the name reflects this too (eg GMT, BST *), as it isn't all that obvious from some of the names.
  • The accuracy of the underlying calculations have been improved by taking into account the ellipticity of the earths orbit: this means the equinoxes and solstices are now correct to within a few minutes rather than a couple of days.
  • Minor behind the scenes updates too.

I prefer the much simpler and snappier SunClock widget.

You can also see the effect of changing the time or the date in two ways:
  • Click on the date or time buttons and change them to another value;
  • Click on the map and drag the mouse left and right to change the time, up and down to change the date. If you hold down the "Apple" key as you drag, the date will be locked; hold down "shift" and the time will be locked.
Clicking "now" will update the time and date and reset your region: "live" makes the widget update in real-time, but doesn't reset your region. This is automatically enabled/disabled when the widget is loaded or unloaded.

We hope you have fun with it!
