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.

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 !

Must have app! Great Widgets. Also love the globe with Moon and Sun visible in the background especially. When can we get the clock as an Android Wear watch face? This would look great on my Moto 360!

Can you make the clock widget work as a lock screen widget? UPDATE: Can you make the clock widget work as a lock screen widget? Great app, but you should allow the clock to be used as a live wallpaper The coolest part of this app is the 24hr clock that shows light/dark, sun rise/set, and moon rise/set times. You should allows the clock to be used as live wallpaper as the clock widget is too small to be useful on a tablet.
