The Android clock has always allowed us to add a second, third, or fourth timezone. The home screen, however, would only show our current time, we had to open the clock app to see any other time zones. Let's add a widget to manage multiple time zones on the Android home screen.
Manage multiple time zones with World Clock & Widget
World Clock & Widget is the most popular app to manage multiple time zones on Android, with more than 1 Million downloads and an average review score of 4.3/5 after more than 70,000 reviews.
Once installed, the app includes by default the time zones for New York, London, and Tokyo, but we can, of course, add more from the application menu.
We can add as many time zones as we want, searching either by a major city...
...or with the abbreviations for certain timezones, such as the Central European Time (CET).
...and the Pacific Standard Time (PST).
If we want to show the time zone for a particular city that isn't included in the app, the best way is to add a city with the same timezone and rename it. For example, if we want Kyoto, we just press on Tokyo until we get the settings menu, and select "Edit Clock".
From the edit option, we can change the title and the description.
On the app's settings screen, we can select the 12-hour or the 24-hour format - the default is 24-hour. We can also choose extra information, such as the date and the display of seconds, and change the aesthetic choices for the widget.
The application offers three kinds of widgets: 1x1, 2x1, and 4x1.
Strangely, the 4x1 will only show up to two time zones, and the 2x1 will show up to four. If we have selected more time zones, they will cycle every few seconds on the widgets.
Finally, if we want to set up a particular appointment at a foreign time zone, we just select the Time Zone Converter option.
On the converter, we move the slider to select the time of interest, and we will get the corresponding times for the rest of the time zones.
