This app is fabulous covering all aspects of learning to tell the time.  It suits beginners through to advanced.  Well thought out with every possible variation and beautifully illustrated with excellent features - top class App in every way!

There are 4 main categories each designed to teach the important aspects to telling the time. These same categories are applied to several different levels, each more complex than the next.  The same categories throughout this keeps continuity for your child.

  • Tell time: "What time is it?" 
    Your child selects the correct time using the digital display according to the time on the clock face.
  • Set time: "Set time to"
    Your child sets the clock face to the time stated.
  • Tell Elapsed time: "How far ahead/behind  is the second clock?"
    Your child selects the correct time difference, using the digital display, between the 2 clock faces
  • Set Elapsed time: "Set second clock 1 hour behind"
    Your child moves the second clock face to the correct time"

Within the "settings" you can increase the levels to include 1 hour, 30 minute, 15 minute, 5 minute and 1 minute intervals.  This is an excellent feature as you can progress with your child as they learn and gain confidence.  You can also change the clock style to include minutes and hours, Roman numerals and the 24 hour clock. 

This App really has it all.  You can choose to have the jungle sounds, animal sounds, or voice on or off.  The questions are asked by a child so the App is completely non-threatening to your child.   With the voice on your child gets to HEAR the time as they set the clock face, this helps them to know if they are right or not.  If you choose to hear the voice then no reading is required. You can also set the voice  to say either "ten fifteen " or "quarter past ten" depending on your preference.  As if all that wasn't already fabulous, the app is convertible into 13 different languages!!!

To add a little bit of extra fun your child can choose from 6 different animals to place in the centre of their clocks, a nice touch for little one's! These animals make an appropriate celebratory sound when your child gets the question right and they smile too!  Every 5 questions right brings up all the happy smiling faces of the animals along with a well done, this is very motivational.

10 out of 10!

Age Group:


If you are sharing an iPad between children you can add other users by name as this awesome App follows the progress of your child's learning. It monitors how many correct and incorrect answers your child has and totals them as a percentage. All scores can be reset for added motivation, if required. (or if little sisters press the wrong button whilst overlooking!)

One additional feature helps your child to understand how the 'clock' (time) actually works by showing how it the hands move around CLOCKWISE. You can select the hour hand, minute hand, tell the time and add more options.

This is a added touch which will really help if your child needs to 'understand' the concept of time more clearly.

Reading is only required when you turn off the voices.
