How to convert timezones (e.g. EET, CET) to your local time.

Like me, you probably have experienced on a number of occasions the starting time of an online meeting, webinar, TV program, sporting event or any special event you want to catch, but is happening in a different geographic location quoted with a timezone abbreviation suffix. As an iPhone user, you need to figure out what the main city of that timezone is and adding it to your iPhone world clock, then setting a separate alarm for it, which you might get wrong anyway due to different daylight savings around the world.

As one of my hobbies is programming during my pastime, I decided to develop a mobile app that would help me convert foreign timezones to my local time. As a bonus, I included a “Set Reminder” as an alarm function; just think about this, of what use is it to convert a timezone for an event I want to follow and still miss it because I got carried away with something in between?

Then again I thought that I might not be the only one who would benefit from such an app, so…

I decided to upload it to the Apple Store as a FREE app, and within 2 weeks, 187 people have downloaded it and 67 people have gone on to use it.

Below is a picture of one of the screens of the app. If you want to try it out, you can download it from here. Enjoy it and please let me know what you think of it
