Trying to beat the headache-inducing task of scheduling meetings across timezones? Frequent international travellers should keep Every Time Zone bookmarked!
It's a simple website (with an iPad app also available) that displays the current time in your location, based on your computer's clock, along with a dozen other timezones.
You can see with a click and a glance what time (say) 4.30pm in Singapore will be in New York and London.
It's helpfully colour-shaded to help you spot the difference between the work day, the shoulder period where you'll owe someone a beer for getting in early or staying late.
The green slider, which is the time of your planned meeting, will slide to around 24 hours before and after the current time in your time zone.
Ironically, Every Time Zone doesn't cover every time zone. You get:
- San Francisco
- New York
While there's no way to add extra timezones it's pretty useful for at-a-glance scheduling, especially that confusing over-the-dateline calculation to the US, where San Francisco is eighteen hours behind Sydney.
