Features of Clock:
One of the great new apps which comes with iOS six, is clock. The clock app comes installed on new iPads with iOS 6. Grandpa, from Ireland, just purchased a new iPad the other day, with iOS 6 installed.
You will see the clock app on your home screen. Tap on it!
By default, you will see Cupertino California, New York, Paris, Beijing, and Tokyo. Of course, if you don't live in one of these cities, you'll want to change it!
That's easy! In the top left-hand side you will see and edit button. Tap on it! From the pop down menu you can delete, reorder, or change from Fahrenheit to C. You may want to remove the ones you do not need. This is not the window where you will be adding new clocks, only the section for reordering and removing clocks.
Once you are ready to add a new clock, just tap on the big clock looking icon with a plus in it, in your clocks list.
Here, you will find most of the major cities that are located within each time zone. You can scroll through the list, or search for it by typing in the search field at the top of this dialogue.
In Australia, the major cities are here, but hardly any of the smaller cities are. Not that I would expect them to have many smaller cities, but it would have been a nice addition.
I like the clock app! I like that I can see many time zones at once. I like that you can immediately see whether it is day light or dark at the locations, And there are even little icons for the whether not appear on the map of the world below.
The map of the world also shows the temperature and digital time for each location, as well as a moving daylight map which gives you a clear indication of which part of the earth is light, and which is dark.
This combines many of the elements of clocks that we enjoy using on our iPad and computers, all into one! And this is only one segment of this amazing new app.
If you look along the bottom of the clock app, you will see there are several options; World Clock, Alarm, Stopwatch, and Timer.
The Alarm, Stopwatch and Timer are easy to use and intuitive... have a go and see how easy it is to use Clock for iPad.
