This is a teaching application which recognizes that children learn most effectively if they having fun at the same time.

What time is it? offers users a fun traditional clock as its home screen which allows children to manually set the hour and minute hands of its face.

To make setting this clock face to specific minutes as easy as possible for young learners the app includes a “snap to minutes” feature that automatically moves the clock’s minute hands to the nearest minute when it’s set manually.

Left unattended the app’s clock face will automatically reflect the correct current time, staying in the clock state until it’s touched once more.

While this area of the application introduces children to how clocks function, the app offers a more engaging learning experience as well.

Pros

  1. Excellent teaching tool for teachers to educate new generation of kids how to read the Analog clock face
  2. Simple & easy to manage interface
  3. Also works like a normal clock which you can use it like normal clocks

Cons

  1. The hour hand don’t move when the minute hand moves in the correct ratio, it will confuse kids if it’s not the correct “ratio” when the minute hands moves accordingly
  2. The graphics can be improved on the “book” section but acceptable for kids books 😀
  3. Maybe add a “seconds hand” to emulate the real clocks that one rotation of the seconds hand can move 1 minute of the minute hand.
  4. Maybe explain the importance of this knowledge as many are too dependent on digital clocks

Overall, this application is acceptable for teaching kids and recommended for teachers & parents to get this application just to get your kids this useful knowledge that may prove useful in the future.
