While checking out the press releases for the new Nexus devices, and Android 4.2 more generally, I noticed this image. It appears that Google have given Android’s clock application a much needed overhaul. The lack of a world clock feature in Android up until this point has been ridiculous, and the hideous applications on the market almost drove me to learn to develop Android applications and make my own, so I’m glad that Google have finally got onto that.

One more reason that Android 4.2 will be rad, I guess. What little things about Android irk you? Let’s get some discussion happening, folks.

    also, how many alarms can you set on the stock alarm app? on my htc with sense 4 it’s limited to 10. sometimes a man’s gotta have more than one alarm to wake up.

    Glad that Google finally has a timer and stopwatch built into the clock app.

    Call me radical, but if I need to get a protractor out to tell the time, I won’t…

    This really warranted it’s own post?

    This most definitely necessitated its own post.
