Great for travellers, those dealing with other time zones, astronomers, weather watchers, geographers, teachers, photographers, fishermen & other outdoor types - as well as just about any geek you can think of.

Features:
• Real-time simulations include clouds, city lights, sea ice, and more, generated from actual satellite imagery
• Clock and compass also show sunrise & sunset; moon phase, moonrise & set; twilight & transit times
• Globe and map are fully interactive, using touchscreen or device sensors
• Easily shows any date, any location
• Clock and globe widgets
• Live wallpapers for real-time map and globe
• Tablet compatible

Permissions explained:
Full Internet access - to download the satellite imagery used to make the map and globe.
View network state - to ensure that you have a high-speed data connection before downloads take place.
Location - sunrise and sunset times depend on where you are; GPS is used when no network is available.
Start at boot, set wallpaper - both essential to making the live wallpaper work.
Write SD - for caching images locally.

Recent changes:
• Add Compass option for true/magnetic north
• Add black outline to Clock hands (for better visibility)
• Add Russian language support
• Improve map resolution on some devices

User reviews of TerraTime
Awesome app however it needs an option to disable automatic updates when using a mobile network. Downloading almost 1mb per globe/map update can be expensive over a 3G network. Otherwise I love it !

Fantastic Wallpaper, the best there is. Had a prob reinstalling after going to 2.2. Sent email to developer, got quick response with a fix that allowed reinstall. Fantastic App, Fantastic Developer. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Dazzling! Perfect companion to Moon Phase Pro. Explore all the settings. Couldn't be better, but knowing the developer, it probably soon will be. *** I would love to be able to invert the 24-hour clock display so that midnight/darkness is at the bottom & noon/daylight is at the top. ***

Works for me Liked this since it first appeared in KDE. This version fails to download the globe data, says I have to check my perfect Internet access. Cleaning data helps for short time, but that means a loss of all settings.

One of my most favourites. I've had this app installed for years and will most probably have it for another few years.
