(Free version – this app also has a highly affordable paid version with some extra features and no ads.)

This app implements International Color Time, which is a slightly silly but effective standard, intended to eliminate the confusion that accompanies trying to coordinate phone calls or other activities with people who live in other time zones around the world. Instead of trying to figure out what time it is somewhere else and whether we mean five o’clock my time or five o’clock your time, we both use a GLOBAL clock that’s the SAME EVERYWHERE, and save ourselves a lot of hassle.

Why bother with this, and why use color, you may ask? If you’re unsure, consider this excerpt from the ICT Manifesto:

It’s hard to keep track of how many hours the time gap is between where you’re standing and where your overseas distributor is located, whether you’re speaking in terms of your local time or theirs, and whether to add or subtract the difference when figuring out what your watch should say when you make the call. It’s worse if either or both of you happen to be traveling, which is increasingly the case now that we all have cell phones, and the fact that there’s also Daylight Saving Time which starts and ends on different days in different countries makes things enormously complicated. Some of us waste a lot of time trying to clarify these details (and then we screw it up anyway).

Wouldn’t it be nice, and much simpler, if we could all agree on what time it was, all over the world? At first I thought we should just use unaltered Greenwich Mean Time for everything and call it a day. I’d be all right with that, frankly. Computers do it. The only problem is that we’ve all become accustomed to having certain numbers line up with certain parts of the day, and having the clock “roll over” in the middle of the night (and also at mid-day if you’re using the 12-hour system). To move the numbers feels peculiar, and to change them more for some people than for others feels unfair.

This is an inherent problem with any time marking system that uses numbers, or letters, or anything else where there is a hierarchy and a point where you return to the beginning. What would be better is a time marking system that forms a natural loop without feeling like it has any particular beginning or end, and without us having habitual expectations about which part of the cycle lines up with which part of the day. That’s where the color wheel comes in.

We can simply decide that at some particular point, the time is “orange,” everywhere on the planet. Later on it will be yellow, green, teal, blue, maroon, and so on, and eventually orange again. In my part of the world, people tend to wake up in the blue range, eat lunch around lavender and get off work at orange, but elsewhere it may be that you wake up at yellow and have dinner at purple. Neither seems to make more sense than the other, which is exactly the point. And then if we want to have a phone call, we can arrange to speak at thirty minutes past indigo, and there is no confusion about exactly when that means.

And so I decided to implement this clock, as an arbitrary standard for coordinating time around the globe.

(My 4000 characters are about used up – if you want to know why THIS clock is better than OTHER clocks based on color, read the full manifesto at (also included in the app for your convenience).

    WOW! Thank you very much!
    It works PERFECTLY with my Kindle Fire HD
    I searched all day for a direct download of this apk file for the D-Link SharePort Mobile app to load into my Kindle Fire HD 7″. I’m using it with SharePort function of my new D-Link SharePort Go Mobile Companion Router with Rechargeable Battery ( DIR-506L ). This app is NOT available from Amazon because this app and device combo enables Kindle users to infinitely expand their local storage, Amazon hates that because they’re focused on SELLING you stuff and they’re making it very hard for us to enjoy the content we already own.  I have over 600 DVDs backed up on a storage drive and now I can take any/all of them with me, where ever I go. Thanks again!!!
