International Time is Hard

Just in case anyone else is ever foolish enough to try writing a World Clock app without realizing how crazy it is, do watch this video:

I was foolish enough to try writing one (not using a third web party api) 3 years ago. Its still available on the Play Store (the source is available on Github) and works at least for the few countries I keep track of, though I am sure its buggy for others.

Wish I had seen this video 3 years ago 🙂
