It's always 5 o'clock somewhere. Ever wondered where that is? This app will tell you!

Lots of things happen at 5 p.m. Some people leave work, some meet friends and socialize. Now you can find out where it's 5 p.m. right now and say to yourself "wow, if I were there, it would be 5 o'clock already!"

You can upgrade to the full version from in the app. The full version includes these extra features:
• Removes the advertising
• Settable page refresh - quicker or slower
• Settable default map zoom
• Settable time to search for
• Settable map view - not just Aerial
• Shake-to-refresh, or use the button, to see the next place
• Touch the city name or compass rose to re-center the map
• Hides the title bar to make the map bigger
• Pause/Play - if you want to browse the map without interruption
• Displays the time till 5 (or whenever) in your local time zone
• More locations than just those built into your iOS device - some timezones have only one place listed! (More will be added over time)
• Overlay showing the timezone boundaries on the map.

This app is supported by advertising (iOS4+) unless you buy the full version.

New features slated for a future version 1.1:
• More locations!
• iPad native version.
• Add a totally-random mode, that selects target timezones at random.
• Calculate distance from here to the location being displayed.

  • First this was a joke, but now it's a staple

    I am really enjoying this app, it gives me good perspective on the world, and inspires me to study the geography of the locales presented in the app. I upgraded to the paid app so I could slow down the transitions, but other than that, I have no complaints.

  • Cool idea

    Annoying ads, shifts and zooms. Premium might be decent. This isn't.

  • Wow


    That sucked. Very confusing.
